Petit Nord Baby Suede Ballerina Slippers, £49.02

It is not every day I come across a gorgeous baby shoe. And possibly never one that works for both boys and girls, and comes in four different (all gorgeous) colours, and doesn’t have a price tag that makes your eyes water… So I felt it was my duty to my fellow mamas to quickly rustle up a post to share my find. This is the Mary Jane version above (check out the velcro version below), and may I just say that I think it’s perfectly fine to dress a baby boy in a Mary Jane style of shoe (just possibly not the dusty pink version?), but then I dressed Marlow (to my dad’s horror) in tights until her was at least 18 months old, and on a couple of occasions, a suede leopard print soft ankle boot (my dad called this his ‘Rod Stewart’ phase, (let’s just say he was more than a little tense), so I may not be the best person to give the green light. Anyway, there is still a dearth of stylish first baby shoes out there (if I only had the energy…), but I am happy to discover that there are definitely more options than there were six years ago when I was looking. I also love these, these, these and these.
