For as much as I do not dress my baby girl in overtly “girly” outfits, I’m kind of a sucker for a bit of sparkle. That said, I don’t want it to look like she was thrown up on by a glitter monster, because sparkle, like most bold fashion statements, is best used in moderation. But while sparkle may seem like the ultimate in “girly girl” baby fashions and it would seem counterintuitive that I (lover of all things neutral) should want to dress my baby in it, nothing says “girl” quite like sparkle and when it’s added to an outfit comprised of more neutral items. When Fern is wearing sparkly shoes paired with more “boyish” items like a little button-up and jeans, there is no doubt that she is a girl.
And call me a traditionalist, but I love a bit of sparkle added to a cute little holiday outfit. In my hunt for the perfect (tasteful) sparkly shoes, I found 7 that were particularly cute and one made the cut as Fern’s shoes for her holiday outfit!
