Little Acorn Boutique Shop Spotlight

* I received this item for review.  No other compensation was given.*

I came across this shop initially because I entered a giveaway on instagram and when I started getting the pictures in my feed I just loved the fun prints.

So I contacted the shop owner Krisit and asked if she was interested in a review and was excited when she agreed to make and send a pair for Eleanor.  I love to dress up Eleanor and love when I can find items that no one else has even more.


So Eleanor really didn't care as much about the leggings when they arrived, but she loved the card that came with them.  She made a beeline straight for it.

(I apologize for the lack of quality images below.  Getting a baby on the move all the time to not be on the move is pretty tough.  I tried!)

First off these pants are even more adorable in person than in a picture!  I love the peachy color and the pattern.  Rob's a hunter so it was a fun way to kind of recognize that but still keep it girly.  I'm really hoping they will still fit in the fall when deer season opens.

I think that they will because as you can see in some of the images they are a little long.  This isn't a fault of Kristi, the maker of these wonderful things; I asked for a 12 month size because sometimes Eleanor can fit into that size and with cloth diapers they add a little bulk to them. 

They were very soft and have stretch to them so they will be comfortable. 

Eleanor has become very mobile lately so a pair of pants that can stand to a lot of wear (especially on the knees) is super important. 

Around the waist they fit snugly enough that I don't feel like they are going to fall down, but with enough room so they aren't to tight and that she still has room to grow.  Does that make sense?  The images below kind of show a gap in the back of the pants to show what I'm talking about.

Eleanor seems pretty happy in them.  I had them on her when my mom came over to babysit her, and later that day my sister in law and her kids came over and she got lots of compliments on how cute she looked (sidenote:  I want to find another coordinating solid top or onesie to pair them with other than white.  Suggestions?).  And when I posted a picture on instagram of her in them I got the same 'those are so cute!' reaction.

The craftsmanship of the pants is well done.  I've seen some pants where the patterns on the pieces didn't line up, and while that's okay sometimes, in some pants it doesn't look right, but these didn't have that issue.  The stitching was great (I have an inability to sew a straight line so I'm impressed). 

She's worn them a couple of times so they have been washed a few times. They didn't fray, threads didn't come lose and they didn't fade at all. 

Rob's a hunter and these leggings were a fun way to incorporate that but still keeping it girly.

You can find your own adorable pair through her instagram page or Etsy shop.
