Willow’s Capsule Wardrobe – 6 to 9 Months

I’ve started looking at Willow’s wardrobe as a capsule.

If you think about it isn’t a baby’s wardrobe a capsule wardrobe in the purest form? The clothes are only wearable for a few months (where we move on to the next season kids out grow their clothes). Then you start again with the next season and size up.

So I’ve been collecting clothes for Willow’s next size up. As with her previous wardobes I went with a colour scheme and made sure everything was able to mix and match. This season’s colour scheme is oatmeal, tan and cream as the neutrals, with dark purple, dusky pink and mint as the accent colours. There is also a bit of grey thrown into the mix.

I found this season a bit awkward to buy for because all of the sizes. Most shops only sell 6 to 12 months. Which doesn’t work for us because 6 to 9 will be all winter wear (July and August and September is often still frigid in Joburg) and 9 to 12 is summer. Also 6 to 12 looks miles too big for Willow…

It is hard to find shops that do 6 to 9 and 9 to 12 separately but I did find a few. So top tip if you’re looking for 6 – 9 specifically: Go to Mr Price and Keedo (and that’s nice high end and low end for you).

In the end I think I got a nice selection of goodies. I was looking for things that will keep her warm, but which I can layer as I don’t want her movement restricted.

Here’s what we got:

Most of the clothes come from Mr Price. I discovered they did baby clothes last month and they are one of the few that does 6 – 9 months. Also being so affordable I went a little crazy…

Then I got a few goodies from Ackermans – they were all gifts from friends who haven’t seen me since before Willow was born. I’m looking forward to her wearing everything!
