Rare Editions Infant Nautical Capri Set

For as far back as I can remember, I always knew that whether someday I had a boy or a girl I would buy them a sailor suit. Not some off the rack knock-off but the real deal, family heirloom quality sailor suit. Two and a half weeks ago I received a $20 Amazon Gift Card in the mail that I had won from an online Arby's (restaurant) Instant Win Game. After scouring the better part of the women's clothing on Amazon, and finding nothing that really stuck out as something that I would wear (not to mention something that wouldn't require more money out of my own pocket), I decided to check out the children's clothes. I sudden't remembered how much I wanted a sailor suit and set to work searching for the perfect one. I found it! The Rare Editions Baby-Girls Infant Nautical Capri Set was perfect! It had the classic Navy and White colors and the classic sailor style. I read the reviews before I decided to purchase it. The only negative review was towards the material. It was described as kinda stiff and more like a uniform than a child's outfit. However, this was the review that convinced me the most that this was what I was looking for! About a week later (was sorta bummed that my Amazon Prime membership didn't apply to this order to shorten the shipping), it finally arrived and I was ecstatic! I had checked my mailbox on the way out of our complex headed to my grandma's house (my mother's mother), so I had to wait a whole 45 minutes to try it on Annabelle. It was AMAZING! Here are some photos of the first time she wore the outfit, the photos don't do it any justice at all but it was the best I could do at the time of day with a cellphone camera.

As you can see, it comes with classic sailor style top (though I was a little upset that it turned out to be sleeveless, but later realized that it's almost more adorable that way, and so much better for the summer), that is long enough to be worn on it's own. A pair of matching capris, though they are long enough on Annabelle to be pants, however this just means that it will fit her for even longer! Last but certainly not least, the most adorable little hat to top it all off with the matching color scheme and a big white bow. The hat is stretchy, and I love that the elastic is all bunched up in the back so that you can't see it from the front. The material really isn't too stiff, it's stiff enough to match the style but not so much that Annabelle seems uncomfortable. It's definitely an outfit more suited to formal occasions, but family gatherings would be perfect for it as well. Annabelle currently wears 18 month sized clothes, but this outfit fits her pretty loosely so it should last her well into the rest of the year. This is definitely a brand I recommend, and I will look to them in the future for other formal outfits.
