Things I Love: Mini Mioche (with Giveaway!)

At the moment life is pretty much kicking my butt.  My little guy wants to be with me 24/7 when he's not sleeping.  And my bigger little guy is kind of jealous.

However... it's hard to stay mad at this face for long!

And how cute is he in that outfit?  I love the color of the sweater

The whole outfit is compliments of mini mioche (mee-osh) a baby and toddler clothing company from Toronto, Canada.

Things I Love:
  • mini mioche is committed to using 100% organic cotton
  • their clothing is designed and made in Canada
  • seamstresses are paid a living wage
  • they are environmentally friendly in their dyes and packaging (no plastic)
mioche means "little one" in French.  I love how soft the fabric is and that all the tags are also made of soft fabric to not be scratchy for my little guy.  Lots of baby clothes are really cute, but sometimes we don't really care about what character is popular, we really care about the baby!  These clothes are simple and classic.  No one will look at these pictures in 20 years and see "dated" - well, other than maybe my style!

The clothing seems to hold up pretty well to a crawling baby and many washes.  However, I haven't put mine in the dryer because I'm afraid it might shrink (see below), but they dry quickly.  The cute boogie pants even fit over cloth diapers!

Things I didn't Love:  The only complaints I have are in the sizing and "season" of the clothes.  Noah is wearing 9 and 12 month clothing in most brands.  This outfit is sized as 12-18 months and it fits him now.  The sweater is even a bit small width wise, especially over the t-shirt.  However, everything is long enough which is rather amazing considering most other clothing isn't.

In terms of the season, unless you live where it's warm most of the year this is not a fall and winter outfit.  The super soft cotton is rather thin and definitely isn't warm enough for our weather, especially if you keep your house on the cool side in the winter.  It would be great in milder climates or seasons though.

  1. Joyful Dress in Plum would be what I would get.Something nice for my sweet niece Delilah

  2. The toasty hooded dress is really cute! Dr

  3. Love the Sweet Swing Jacket in Teal! Can it get any cuter for a cool day and cool kid?? Though I have to say that the Comfy Cardi is also pretty cute and nicely gender neutral.

  4. The sweet swing jacket would be perfect for my little niece!
