We're off to a baby shower tomorrow, me and my three girls. My lovely friend Kate is expecting her first bub, and it's a very special occasion.
Entirely frivolous, I know. Experience tells me that bootees are kind of useless for a baby. Doesn't matter how clever or unique the construction, they always fall off. They're for decorative purposes only.
But for new babies, especially first babies, decorative is just fine. Soft organic cotton in a sweet pale blue, and beautiful wooden buttons from here.
Frivolous indeed. And just a little bit cute.
