Layers are the key to keeping your birdees happy and warm this winter, no matter how far they wander from the nest. As cold weather sets in, Two Birdees has been hard at work to share with you the best eco friendly baby clothes to keep your little birdees toasty. Among our favorite partners in this mission are the European baby clothing makers Mayoral. The Spanish brand has been creating unique children’s clothes for over 70 years, so they know their stuff.
We’ve created four looks using Mayoral kids fashion from Spain to help guide you through the sea of sweaters, scarves and other winterwear out there. We’ve also pulled in some cute items from our other brands to help form a complete picture for parents who want their little ones to be cozy without sacrificing style (or their pocketbooks). Here are some versatile outfits that your babies could wear to a holiday party or a family outing with equal ease.
Every great outfit starts with the perfect dress, and it doesn’t get much better than the Mayoral Baby Girl’s Polka Dot Dress in Rose. This high waisted design is made with a blend of wool for warmth and polyester for softness. It is fully lined with a back zipper closure. A big bow and piped trim add an extra touch of girly goodness.
The pretty almond polka dots on this dress are echoed in Mayoral’s Almond Ruffle Bolero Cardigan. Made with 10% Angora rabbit fur woven right into the fabric, this cardigan will be super soft on your little girl’s arms as she makes the family rounds this holiday season. Mayoral tights with the same almond polka dot pattern round out this fetching ensemble. The tights come complete with graphic mary jane style shoes printed on the feet, so your little one doesn’t have to deal with uncomfortable formal footwear.
Or you could opt for a pair of Easy Peasy hand crafted butter soft leather shoes in Mexi Pink. Easy Peasy infant shoes are designed not to pinch or poke your little one’s feet, and the rose gold color ties the outfit together while adding a dash of holiday sparkle.
If your baby girl birdee needs to go outside in the cold, Mayoral has the solution: their Faux Fur Eared Hooded Coat in Beige. Fully lined and incredibly snuggly, this coat will keep even the smallest birdees warm. The hood will keep their head toasty, and the ear details on top will transform them into your very own polar bear.
Add a pair of TL Care organic cotton mittens in a neutral shade to coordinate with the coat, and she’ll be ready for any wintertime adventure!
Your baby boy birdee will light up any holiday party in Mayoral’s Wool Lined Overshirt in Cherry. The bright plaid print in 100% cotton is simply fetching, while the inside is lined with lamb’s wool for warmth. Front snap closures make getting this over shirt on and off a breeze, so it can easily be shed if the lamb’s wool gets a little too toasty. We recommend an undershirt, such as Huxbaby’s Organic Cotton Cross Drop Back T-shirt, to keep him looking great no matter how many layers he wears.
For pants, Mayoral’s adorable Corduroy Trousers With Suspenders will make him look every inch the classy gentleman (even if his mischievous smile says otherwise). The trousers come in Graphite and Sand, either of which will look great with a Mayoral overshirt. Top it off with Mayoral’s Reversible Hoodie for outdoor expeditions. The hoodie is Graphite gray with a sports jersey style graphic on one side, and classic cream on the reverse side, so it can be dressed up or down depending on what the day calls for.
Of course, no winter outfit is complete without warm accessories. KicKee Pants Stretch Bamboo Sock Sets are the softest around. The bamboo viscose fabric allows for breathability while keeping your little birdee’s toes nice and warm. Cover them with a pair of Easy Peasy hand crafted butter soft leather shoes in Mexi Taupe for added protection from the elements. The shoes’ modern design and fringed leather ties add an extra dose of cuteness, as well.
Finally, Mayoral’s Microfiber Hat in Beige makes this outfit’s crowning glory. The aviator inspired design will carry him from preschool to holiday shopping to family get togethers with ease.
For a classic, classy and warm winter outfit for girls, look no further than Mayoral’s Wool Blend Check Dress in Grey. The polyester and wool exterior of this dress is woven with metallic fibers for a subtle shine, while the full poly/cotton lining will keep any wool scratchiness away from her skin. The dress is drop waisted with a zipper closure in the back to make getting dressed easy. Pair with Mayoral Girls Knitted Leggings and Cardigan in Chromium for comfy under and over layers.
The cardigan’s pattern of knitted diamonds and tiers of ruffle trim keep the outfit from being too plain, but to add a little color, consider Mayoral’s Tricot Coat and Scarf in Blue. The unique weave of the acrylic fabric allows the coat to be textured on the outside but smooth and soft within. The additional scarf is lovely, but the fun thing about cold weather dressing is that there are so many accessory options, like the Mayoral Girls Beanie, Scarf and Glove set in Blue. The beanie comes with sweet ear details to keep your little one looking fashionable, and the scarf has two pocket details, one on each end, which are just the right size to store the gloves when she needs her hands free.
Let her add her own personality to her outfit with accessories like Mini Melissa shoes. We like the Ultragirl II SP style in silver, which have cat face details on the toes and a wraparound strap designed to look like a cat’s tail. The PVC material is waterproof and will keep her feet protected from the elements, all while looking fabulous.
It can be hard to get little boys to dress up, but Mayoral’s ultra comfortable Long Sleeve Woodland Shirt is here to help you out. The 100% cotton fabric is dotted with tiny images of trees, leaves and woodland critters, while the front button closure and pocket will make him feel like a grown up.
Pair with Mayoral’s Faded Trousers in Macadamia for a smart but simple look that will carry him from autumn to winter with only minor changes, like the addition of a thick sweater. Enter Mayoral’s Knitted Cardigan in Iron. The elbow patches on this cotton and wool blend sweater will add an air of adorable distinction. A set of warm Mayoral Socks will keep his feet from getting cold, especially when paired with Easy Peasy hand crafted butter soft leather shoes in Taupe. Their hand drawn looking details of skulls and curlicues add just a little bit of edge to the outfit.
Tie the whole thing together with an Imps & Elfs Long Sleeve Sports Jacket in Green Melange. The lovely color will coordinate with the woodland print shirt, while the 95% organic cotton fabric is a truly “green” choice. A Zutano Cozie Fleece Hat with little fleece ears will keep his head warm no matter what he gets into.
