Everyone needs a good pregnancy BFF, and Rosie Pope wants to fill that role for all of us. With her chic maternity line, boutiques on the coasts, a chatty guide to pregnancy called Mommy IQ and a stint as a Bravo reality star on Pregnant in Heels, Pope might as well be the Martha Stewart of modern motherhood. Now, the Brit beauty has trained her eye on little ones with Rosie Pope Baby, her new layette and toddler clothing collection.
If your baby has sweet dreams of lounging on Mediterranean mega-yachts later in life, he or she will love dressing up in Pope’s fresh, nautical-inspired prints. From bodysuits to rompers, dresses to kimono sets, many of the collection’s super-soft, all-cotton pieces are festooned with cheerful rope-and-anchor patterns based on Pope’s original sketches. (Tiny golden anchors embroidered near necklines and ankles are a luxe touch we love.)
To keep from going, well, overboard on the boat theme, you can mix in Pope’s separates printed with bold stripes, chevron patterns, delicate flowers and sweet starbursts. The flutter sleeves and smocking details on some girls’ pieces are irresistibly feminine, while boys can take jaunty first steps in comfy shorts equipped with pockets.
Pope is as glam as it gets for a mom of four, but her practical side is what sets this collection apart. Pajama feet, for instance, can be unbuttoned and folded back to grow with your baby, and there are fold-over mittens to prevent scratching. The clothing comes in sizes newborn to 24 months.
Rosie Pope Baby is sold on Amazon.com and the Rosie Pope Store, and prices range from $12.50 to $38.50. Gift sets are available for $30 to $110. If you want to know more about Rosie, click here to read our Q&A.
