We asked one of our favorite mamas-on-a-budget for the single best fifteen-dollar-kiddie-investment. Her reply:

“LEG WARMERS! So cute, so practical. A simple way to add a layer when it’s wicked cold, and easy to remove when baby gets overheated during his fifth hour at the mall when you’re trying madly to finish all your xmas shopping.”

We couldn’t agree more. They make a charming budget-conscious gift. We love the flash-dance-y feeling of these. Now just cut off the collar of baby’s baggy grey sweatshirt, tease her bangs, and the look is complete.
