How to Choose the Perfect Outfit for Brunching with your Baby

How to Choose the Perfect Outfit for Brunching with your Baby

When you’re a new mom, leaving the house can turn into quite the production. It’s hard enough to shower, put on makeup and decide what to wear yourself, but when you add your baby’s outfit to the mix-it can be a bit overwhelming. You are probably used to dressing your baby for running errands, playdates and birthday parties but what about brunch? Whether you plan on going to a girls brunch that’s BYOB (bring your own baby) or celebrating a family member’s birthday- having a gameplan for what you and your baby are going to wear can help take some of the stress out of the entire getting ready process. 

At Simply Blessed Kids, we take pride in offering quality infant boutique clothing and  know exactly what to look for to help you choose the perfect brunch outfit for your baby!

Consider the Occasion

Over the years, brunch has truly become a cultural norm where friends and family get together to enjoy a leisurely meal together. From mother’s day brunch to a baby shower brunch or a brunch after church, it’s a great way to socialize with friends and family during the weekend. That’s why it’s important to consider the occasion for your brunch when deciding how to dress your baby. 

For more formal occasions, you may want to opt for something more classic like a smocked dress or a plaid collared romper. For a more casual look, you can go with a shortall in a fun pattern or a ruffled bodysuit in a pretty color. If you really want to turn some heads during brunch, you can choose similar outfits so that you and your little one match! There’s nothing cuter than a coordinating mother/baby duo!

Focus on Comfort

Regardless of the reason for your brunch outing, it’s important that you dress your baby in a comfortable outfit so that they stay cozy and content the whole time. Breathable fabrics like cotton, organic blends or bamboo are all great choices since these materials will be soft on your infant's delicate skin.

Brunch can take place indoors or outdoors so make sure your baby is dressed appropriately for the weather. If you plan on being outside in the heat, it may be a good idea to pack a hat. On the other hand, if you know it’s going to be chilly- packing an extra layer such as a lightweight jacket or blanket will help ensure your baby is comfortable. After all, if your baby is comfortable then he or she is more likely to be happy- and let’s be honest-nothing beats a happy baby when you are out in public!

Add Style with Layers

Speaking of comfort, we all know that the weather can be unpredictable. Layers not only offer extra protection but can also add an element of style to your baby’s outfit!

A lightweight cardigan over a dress or a stylish vest over a onesie not only adds an extra layer of cuteness, but it’s a nice way to adjust your baby’s outfit as needed throughout the brunch. Adding layers is also a great way to create different looks using your baby’s wardrobe. Babies grow so quickly, so investing in a few statement pieces that can be used often is a huge win-win! 


No stylish outfit is complete without a few accessories- and this especially holds true for babies. Pairing a pretty dress with a headband and mary janes can be a great way to elevate your baby’s look for a more formal brunch. If you plan on being outside, a cute pair of sunglasses or a baseball hat can really give off those summer vibes. 

Accessories are a great way to give your baby’s outfit that extra touch! The most important thing is to have fun with it and be mindful to avoid any accessories that may cause your baby discomfort. 

Getting ready to take your baby to brunch may seem daunting at first but it doesn’t have to be when you are prepared. Knowing why and where the brunch will take place is the first step to making sure your baby is well dressed. As long as you choose an outfit that is stylish yet comfortable- your baby should be fairly content while you enjoy some of your brunch favorites. Finally, adding layers & accessories can really elevate your baby’s outfit and complete the overall look!
