Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit series was the first set of books I received as an infant. My grandmother read those books to us repeatedly over the years and they became somewhat of a tradition. Now one generation later we are still reading those very same books on a regular basis and cringing when Mr. McGregor tries to catch Peter.
When babyGap announced the release of their limited edition Peter Rabbit collection I squealed. No really I did! This design inspiration is a match made in heaven. We showed you a glimpse of the line a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to give you a first-hand look at some of the pieces we picked up.
It was extremely hard to choose and took me a couple of days to narrow it down. You see I have to try and control myself in situations like these and it isn’t easy. In the end I chose the Ribbed Shawl Collar Sweater in Regatta Blue, the Checkered Bodysuit and the the Straight Fit Colored Jeans in Gold Plate.
All of the pieces are boutique quality and wash up beautifully. The jeans have a nice worn-in look along the front and the back is stretchy for easy changes. You can pull them up or down without having to worry about belts or buckles. In regards to sizing you won’t have to worry about sizing up or down as it is quite true.
I love this collection so very much and just wish they upped their sizes. My son is in the 18-24 months right now and I would have loved to pick up additional pieces for him to grow into.
My friend Kate, The Shopping Mama showed off her adorable son in his new Peter Rabbit digs today as well. Head on over to her blog to see even more of this collection. Her son is beyond adorable in his sweet hoody .
