I’m not a big believer in “dressing” babies to be mini-adults. Personally I’m not a denim jackets and cool kid slogan t-shirts kind of momma. My little cub is now almost one and in all honesty there’s not much thought goes into what he wears every morning, beyond ease and comfort! He’s so wriggly that I have given up on any outfit that requires an excessive amount of poppers or fastenings. He mainly wears “hand me downs” from his stylish older cousin and if his dad has dressed him, well, let’s just say he often sports the “hobo, eccentric clown” look well. It will be hitting baby-catwalks in a few years time I’m sure?!
Every now and then, when I need him to look respectable and well-dressed, I wet down his hair and brush it in a side part, put on his duffle coat and he wears his Donsje shoes.
Amsterdam-based, Donsje is Dutch for “Fluffy” and they do the cutest booties I have ever seen. The leather is butter, soft and the design is just perfect. I mean seriously, how cute are these little piglet shoes for your little piglet’s-piglet toes?
These perfect little booties are on-trend and with a nostalgic twist, each product has the cute factor and comes beautifully packaged in a bag dangling a tiny bell. I recently bought my little lion cub a pair of the lion booties in tan, they are just scrumptious. I loved them so much I just bought a pair of piglets as a gift for my cousin’s baby shower. Seriously, mommas, you need some Donsje’s in your bubba’s life!
