This is one of my most favourite outfits for Lily, her first birthday outfit! I planned it all literally the week before her birthday, last minute as usual. And I had it in my head that I wanted something fairy-like with a ‘one’ print in gold typography and a cute little one hat. I scoured the net searching for this look.
Tutu Party Dress – Molly and Max Boutique, eBay – £15.49 | Birthday Glitter Hat – PaperArrowApparel, Etsy – £10 | Sevva Emma Cream Patent Shoes – Diffusion Kids – £14.99
It was so much fun dressing Lily up on her birthday, and doesn’t she look adorable!? And the shoes – I have now discovered girls shoes since Lily started walking, and I may have a new obsession. We got these from Diffusion, which is Tyler’s school uniform shop, but you can buy them online from many places – just type in ‘Emma Sevva Patent Shoes’ into google and loads of places come up.
The dress itself is gorgeous! I was nervous as when you buy online, you are never sure what it’ll look like in real like. So I was soooooo happy when it came, it was the perfect fit, soft and comfortable, the tutu fabric was soft and princess-y, the waist was elasticated but not too tight, and the gold one print was gorgeous. The print did not come off at all – win!
As for the hat, I LOVE the hat. The lady at PaperArrowApparel was so helpful when I messaged her that I needed the hat quickly. She made it the next day and posted it first class straight away. I’m so glad I spent £10 on this, as the photos came out so cute. The elastic was comfortable around her head, and the hat itself was soft (not that hard glitter card).
We decided not to have a big party, but a little celebration at home, with Tyler joining us after school. I decorated a little area in our living room with balloons and banners and pom poms, mainly from Poundland and New Look. If you are after stylish party accessories, do take a look in these stores, I was really surprised!
I love this outfit so much, I think I’ll make her wear it at least once a week – well she is one for a whole year 😉
If you are after a first birthday outfit, there is so much on eBay – just type in the search bar ‘first birthday outfit’. There’s even boys outfits too if you add in ‘boys’ to the search bar. I wish I had done this for Tyler!
Did you dress your little one up for their first birthday? What did he or she wear?
i absolute love her outfit its so adorable and the happy birthday banner is lush i think I might need to head to new look/poundland to buy them for MMs 4th its not until February next year but hey better plan ahead!
Yes do it, I’d happily have the banner up all year round, it’s so cool! And you have it up for your birthday too and your other half’s 😉 x
What a little cutie. That is the sweetest outfit and love the confetti balloons and decorations. Hope you all had a wonderful day celebrating #whatmykidwore
