One of my favorite parts of having our daughter is getting to dress her. I have a few go-to brands that I repeatedly purchase from as they’ve become favorites over the last year. In addition to brands, a few one-stop shops to peruse several favorites as well.
For this fall, I’m loving the chunky knits and floral prints that brands are doing. And of course, I seem to always pick out at least two matching sets for each season. Our daughter is growing quickly but feels like we’re finally in a phase where these outfits may actually last more than two months! I always go up a size if I can to maximize the time she will wear it.
I tend to do a staple-style wardrobe for her, as it makes it much easier for putting together outfits that go together. I get staple pieces like onesies in more solid colors and maybe a print or two, then a few dresses or rompers, and then those matching sets. I’ll layer in accessories like shoes and hats/beanies as well for this season. It makes it much easier to travel when you can just grab a handful of pieces and know it will all work together!
This is my short list of brands I love for dressing her:
Favorite Baby Clothing Brands
Quincy Mae absolutely one of my favorite brands, I always find something here. Their bamboo long sleeve onesies (so soft!) and cozy knits are just the best. For sizing, I always go up a size (our daughter is tall) as I find the sizing to run small.
And one pro tip — for more wallet-friendly prices, Quincy Mae has an entire collection for Target called Q by Quincy Mae. So many wonderful sweat sets and dresses in the collection.
For all things neutral and natural tones, The Simple Folk is it. Their seasonal collections have great staple pieces to build out a wardrobe. The sizing does run small as well so keep in mind.
Our local baby store is just the best and they ship!! I pop in here at least once a month to stock up on seasonal pieces and basics. Maia has done such a wonderful job of sourcing brands from around the world (think Japanese, Australian, and Danish lines). You can find Rylee & Cru here, City Mouse, and more. And always keep an eye out for her sales!!
Our go-to sleep zippered footsies have always been Kyte Baby. And I swear they last forever. She wore the size 6 months well into month 10th as they just seem to magically stretch. When I want better shipping options, I often just purchase these on Amazon.
SHOP A FEW FAVORITES NOW
I’ve done a few orders from this shop based out of Southern California. Super well curated, minimalist finds. I often see Konges Sløjd pieces in here (they’re not labeled as such but can kind of see from tags).
One of my favorite brands for cute onesies and dresses is Rylee & Cru. They have the most adorable rompers (like this floral long sleeve or the Winnie romper in English rose) and dresses. And if you’re looking for matching mom & daughter outfits, they have an entire collection here.
Another great brand for all basics that are organic has been Colored Organics. There short sleeve onesies are great staple pieces. The material does shrink since it’s cotton so I suggest not drying.
I am obsessed with all things Konges Sløjd from Copenhagen, Denmark. From their clothing to small toys, it’s just a fun brand. They are tough to find stateside but a few shops like Smallable carry them or I usually find good options on Maisonette.
One of my favorite online retailers for all things baby from toys to clothing is Maisonette. This is where I often stock up on one-of-a-kind finds. They carry Konges Sløjd, Pehr, The Simple Folk, and more. They offer free ground shipping on orders over $95 and very frequently have seasonal sales.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
