As long as I can remember, Christmas has been my favorite holiday. I’m sure I share this sentiment with many, old and young alike. Some of my favorite memories include helping my mom unpack our many boxes of holiday decorations, and getting dressed up in festive wear for Christmas Eve with our family. A scrumptious meal, singing carols around the piano, going to candlelight church service, and of course, opening gifts. The whole season seemed to me a bit magical, and that still holds true to this day.
Since becoming a mother, I have often thought about how I can ignite the spirit of magic and build holiday traditions that our daughter will always remember.
I was so excited to see the Christmas Lookbook from JoJo Maman Bebé this year because my daughter is now at an age to be excited about the holidays, and since she’s now walking, she’s ready for her first real Christmas dress!
JoJo Maman Bebé is a well-known (and loved) UK brand for Maternity, Baby & Child. Just in time for Holiday shopping and festivities, they’re now available in the U.S!
We received the Smocked Cord Party Dress and Patterned Tights as well as the Robin Fair Isle Cardigan. These pieces are just the sweetest, seriously. The body of the dress is made from a beautiful, scarlet-colored, small wale corduroy. Details include a white cotton Peter Pan collar with a delicate scallop trim, and embroidered diamond pattern across the bodice. The tights are a comfortable medium-weight knit, and have grippers on the feet, which is great for early walkers, like Juniper.
The Fair Isle Cardigan is an ultra-soft, washable, cashmere blend with a classic round collar and fair isle style pattern showing plump little winter birds.
Of course, I love that it’s washable, but it’s also super cozy! I kinda wish they carried this sweater in adult sizes… We had a wonderful day recently playing in the Fall leaves, and Juniper stayed nice and toasty with her sweater on.
I absolutely love the timeless quality of these pieces. They are truly so thoughtfully designed and well-constructed, with wonderful attention to detail.
Not only does JoJo Maman Bebé have high-quality clothing for Moms and children, they also carry a selection of wonderfully imaginative toys and accessories. Since Juniper started walking about a week before her 1st birthday, we were looking for a “walker” toy that she could use to improve her balance and coordination with her new skill. We received the Pretty Floral Push-Along Doll Pram, and it has been great- It’s stable and sturdy, and awesome as an early-walker toy.
The pram itself is super easy to put together- I love the simple and whimsical design, and again, the quality is excellent. This is not at all a flimsy piece like some plastic strollers / walkers I’ve looked at. This is definitely sturdy enough to last through years of play, and the rubberized wheel treads are also nice to my wood floors. Juniper loves taking care of her stuffed animals and baby dolls while pushing them around the house.
It’s the most wonderful time of year. Thank you, JoJo Maman Bebé!
