I'm now starting to phase out some of the clothes and gear that feel too baby-ish for Sophie. Onesies are no longer relevant, and she's growing out of her high chair, so it seems fitting to do a toddler-ready haul, and I wanted to share it all with you. Whether you need to buy a gift for the mom in your life or you're in the same position I am, here's what I'm buying right now.


During the week, we’re at home going through our daily routine, so Sophie’s T-shirts and leggings are in heavy rotation. Now that the world is opening up again, though, we’re taking full advantage of being able to stock up on some fancier pieces. I really can’t help it—there are just too many adorable can’t-do-without dresses and shoes available right now.


Sophie and I are entering a phase where the high chair is starting to feel irrelevant, and she's getting more adamant about feeding herself than ever before. I’m feeling a little unprepared, so my next plan of action is to go on a frenzy of buying toddler-feeding essentials. My motto for this new season of our lives is "the easier and the more practical, the better."


I’ve never been one to be extra picky about the kinds of toys Sophie plays with. Sure, a Montessori-type sans bright colors is preferable, but I really don’t want to limit her imagination, so her scheduled playtime is when she's allowed to let her growing autonomy go wild. Right now, she’s super into playing pretend and practicing her ABCs, so I like to buy toys that help encourage her colorful imagination.


There’s always a new gadget or trendy must-have every mom is told she needs, but I like to keep it simple and cater to the moment. Sophie’s hair is very curly, so I’ve been opting for detangling brushes and extra-softening conditioners. Toddlerhood also means she’s going to get the sniffles a bit more, and she’s taking a few more tumbles when we play outside, so I like to be fully prepared for anything she (literally) throws at me.

Nayiri is Who What Wear's senior fashion editor for branded content and based in her hometown, Los Angeles. It all began in 2014 when she landed an internship at the company and never looked back. While she does love writing her fair share of fashion stories, her heart really belongs in the brainstorm room, where she has fun strategizing different ways to create content with our fashion partners so that you engage with the brands you know and love. Her style tends to be more classic (she loves a good black-and-white look with gold accessories), and white pumps are kind of her thing. If she had to pick one person's wardrobe to raid, it would be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's, and she also has a major obsession with interior design. She's a mom to a 1-year-old baby girl named Sophie, and she fully plans on training her to spot fashion trends by the time she's 10. That's all!
