Thank you to Mamas & Papas for sending me some of this special collection. You can find the Mamas & Papas Alice in Wonderland Collection online and in store.
So, I’m at that time now where everything feels like it’s ‘done’. We’re essentially ready for this baby girl.
I’m currently obsessed with going into her nursery and opening up her wardrobe and drawers and running my hands over her tiny clothes. After such a long time of living in boy territory, it still feels slightly strange to see flashes of pink, or floral patterns in front of me. I’m exploring this world of matching frilly pants and dresses, or cable-knit tights, and I’m exploring the girly aisles, and trying to seek out the things I like as a mother of a girl.
Recently, Mamas & Papas got in touch and said there was a range they would like to share with me. And I have to admit I did a little swoon when I saw it.
As a Disney fan, this Alice in Wonderland Collection could not be more adorable. And I was so excited when I unwrapped the little parcel that had been sent to me.
We were sent a few items but this Alice Dress has to be my absolute favourite. It’s pretty much identical to what Alice wears herself and it’s a lovely outfit for a special occasion. It has a little white collar and trim and a matching headband too. And I love the use of baby blue and navy in a girl’s outfit. There’s not enough blue available sometimes. I can’t wait to photograph her in this. Just to truly indulge having a little girl!
I was also sent this unisex Mad Hatter outfit, which looks super cosy and is great quality. I like that I could save this one for baby number three (if we do indeed have another), and it would be fine whichever gender he or she turns out to be. I haven’t lots and lots of proper outfits for her, so this will be a nice one for snuggly days I think.
This top is my second-favourite piece I think. I love the Peter Pan collar, with the Alice in Wonderland quote embroidered on, with a little Alice figure to the right. I think this would be lovely with little leggings and a cardigan – and I’m a sucker for stripes. So it has that nautical touch, which would be lovely for Summer.
This last outfit did make me raise my eyebrows a bit. As it sure is pink and it sure is stereotypically girly. I’ve never been a massive fan of pink, clothes-wise, but you have to appreciate how fun this is. It would be a such a cute outfit for a birthday party, or cake smash, as tutus photograph wonderfully.
We even have an Alice in Wonderland book ready to read to her when she arrives. So I suppose, for now, we just wait!
