Today's YOU TAKEOVER TUESDAY question comes from Emily in Decatur, Georgia.  She writes:

Dear AFOMFT, I'm pregnant with my first child and anxiously trying to find some cute clothes that are 100% organic. To make things more challenging, I don't know whether I'm having a boy or a girl so I'm also looking for them to be gender neutral.  Help!   

There are quite a few lines that feature organic baby clothes right now but there's one in particular which I've seen and felt firsthand that I can personally highly recommend - Paige Lauren Baby.

Many of their pieces are made from 100% certified organic cotton, grown without the use of pesticides and colored with natural dyes.  And boy are they adorable! 

I love the story behind the line, too.  Paige Lauren is a Southern California born and bred designer who got frustrated with not being able to find simple, classic baby clothes to buy for her friends' children and decided to start making her own.  She got inspiration from her own childhood growing up by the beach and the result is a whimsical and relaxed line of kids clothes that you'll wish came in adult sizes too.

You may like what you see but trust me when I tell you that you will LOVE what you feel.  Paige Lauren Baby brags about having the softest baby clothes around and to prove it, they sent me a newborn shirt to check out.  I honestly do not have the words to explain how soft that shirt really is!  It was like velvet but even better.  They've earned the right to boast - if there's something softer out there, I'll be truly surprised. 

Paige Lauren Baby has a beautiful palette of colors to choose from, and Emily, you'll be happy to see that many of them can work for boys or girls.  This deep green, called Kelp, really shows off the contrast stitching.

And what could be cuter than their Classic Double Layer Crawler in Sol with the adorable butt flap on the back!

There's also an adorable new Heather Stripe fabric that's a great gender-neutral choice.

Since I have girls, it's should come as no surprise that I'm drawn to the pretty Flamingo pink.  This Long Sleeve Romper looks so comfy!

And I so want to get this dress for the girls to wear in our family pictures this summer!

The buttons down the back are so sweet!

Emily, I hope that the Paige Lauren Baby collections are the answer to your baby clothing question.  And if you register on their website, you can create a registry to share with friends and family who may be looking for the perfect gift to get your little bundle of joy.  To get you started, I'm going to send you the adorable newborn sample tee that Paige Lauren Baby sent me to review.  I know that after one touch, you'll be as hooked on their line as I am!

And I've got a great gift for one lucky AFOMFT reader too! Since they say feeling is believing (or something along those lines!), Paige Lauren Baby has generously offered to give away one Newborn Essentials gift pack, which includes a natural organic gown and matching cap and a classic superfine jersey white romper with feet.  That's a prize worth more than $100!
