This week marks my 30th week; I can’t believe it! It’s so surreal that soon I’ll be holding my baby boy in my arms. I seriously can’t wait to meet him and dive head first into all things baby. But let’s be real, baby boy clothes aren’t nearly as adorable as baby girl clothes. There’s just something about a little smocked dress. This got me thinking about all of the amazing baby boutiques I’ve stumbled across in SC that are turning that statement into a myth and offering equally adorable pieces for both genders. So here’s a short list of a few baby boutiques that I’ve come across while pregnant.
Marigold Modern Kids
Nestled on Columbia’s upscale Devine Street, this boutique brings a modern and relaxed feel to traditional clothing and offers a “cool” edge. They carry a ton of brands from all over the globe, especially ones that focus on sustainability. They opened in 2018 in Columbia, SC and have been providing those expecting and mothers of all ages with quality pieces for all seasons. It’s also a family-run business!
Under The Almond Trees
Inside, this thrifty boutique is filled with vibrant colors and beautiful blossoms! They focus more on baby + toddler clothing, which is why their two storefronts, Under The Almond Trees and Little Almond Blossoms, are connected side-by-side. Located in Charleston, SC, this baby-gear-focused storefront has also been serving little ones in the community with events, such as Storytime every Thursday morning. They also run a blog as a resource to help guide parents in their journey!

Not only do they sell clothing and accessories for all ages, they even sell children’s outdoor gear, dolls, and arts + crafts. After big success in New York, this storefront opened in Charleston. They’ve also donated 20,000 dresses through their partnership with Good+Foundation and Baby2Baby.

Beaus and Belles
This online-only boutique sends all of their proceeds to Midlands non-profit Power In Changing, a diaper bank that provides diapers and other vital necessities to families experiencing financial hardship. This boutique is made up of gently used second-hand pieces, which means you can score some of the best baby brands for a fraction of the cost.
