Lying in a crib, propped up in a car seat, sitting in a swing, nestled in someone’s arms — sometimes these positions aren’t the best for fancy outfits. But you still want to look pulled together and cute in for your close-up or when you have people cooing all over you, right?

Wow them with this beautiful outfit – comfortable, soft, chic and unique, plus it works for boys or girls! It would work perfectly for holiday portraits, or how about it as part of a no-fuss winter going home outfit when paired with the matching hat and booties?
