sugar & spice & everything nice

As long as I can remember, I have wanted a daughter. Even as a young girl myself, I begged my parents for a little sister. Over the past couple of years, I have even bought one or two things for my maybe daughter—just in case.

Well you can imagine how giddy I was last week to find out that we are, indeed, having a girl!

There are so many adorable things out there for girls, and it would be way too easy to load up on one of everything I see. But I know that this little lady is going to get lots of love, so I'm trying to refrain from buying too much.

Of course, that didn't stop me from doing a little window shopping over the weekend. How darling are these?

1. Organic long sleeve onesie by DwellStudio ($24); 2. Red checked smock dress by Kumquat Baby ($23.45); 3. Polka dot jumper by Velvet & Tweed ($41.95); 4. Soft-Sole No-Lace Sneakers by Old Navy ($7.99); 5. Saltwater Sandals in shiny fuschia ($32); 6. Embroidered Crochet Trim Hat by Old Navy ($9.50); 7. Long sleeved milleraies tee ($36) and bloomers ($32) by Petit Bateau; 8. Floral Raincoat by Zara Kids ($32)

I think it would be SO hard to hold back on buying all of the cute little girl gifts! I love everything you have pictured in this post!
