For years, my ‘go-to’ gift for newborns has been Trumpette socks. What little Texan boy doesn’t need these cowboy socks, and what tiny baby girl doesn’t need some ballet socks? My mum introduced me to these sweet shoe-like socks, and I was excited when she gave Isla her first pair of Jitterbug Jennys. Isla wears a different pair almost every day, as each box comes in a variety of colors. She’s had lots of compliments while strolling around downtown Durango so far! While I love Isla’s shoe collection (15 pairs so far!), I know realize that Trumpette socks are much, much more realistic and useful.

I’m excited to be teaming up with Trumpette to give away a box of socks to one lucky follower! In order to enter the giveaway, you must do the following:

    The Tootsies at first glance look like minion feet. I would give them to Heidi but secretly try to fit my own foot in them. xxxx

  3. I’d love the Jitterbug Jennys or the Cocos for Ana – Isla’s cousin! Love these socks.

  4. I would give the Lucia’s to my baby girl Lillian! She loves her bows ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I would like to win the cocos as I think all baby girls need a pair! I would give them to my grand daughter!

  6. I would love to win the calibabys for my close friend’s little boy, Ross

  7. I’d love to win the seannas for my little cousin who will be born any day !

    I got my first trumpette sock set for my son 4 years ago little skater Johnny’s and now for Hannah I had to have more than just one set ๐Ÿ˜‰ she already has the Hannah’s and Rosie’s ๐Ÿ™‚ (she also rocks big bros skater socks also) and I’m torn between the cocos and the little skipper ones – I mean boat shoes are always in season!!! Your baby girl is too precious!

    I would love the Toddler MaryJanes (in pastel) for my daughter! It’s her birthday in September and she absolutely loves fun socks. It actually took me all summer to convince her that she doesn’t need socks when it’s 90 degrees outside!

    • That is so sweet! Trumpette’s ideal customer! We’re in Colorado right now and very much need Isla to be wearing her socks. Too bad we keep forgetting to take them off during diaper changes… Yikes!

  11. I love the Jenny’s for my best friend’s baby (due in August!)

  12. And I like Trumpette on facebook and I’m following them on instagram!

  13. I like the Toddler Ballerina socks. I would be getting these for my 10 month baby girl.

  14. My lady has been rocking the Mary Janes for months. [With a few washes in between ๐Ÿ˜‰ ] She’s coming up on a year &I’m realizing that soon I am going to have to put her in more than just sweet stocks but real “big girl” shoes too. Kills. Me. Regardless: we’d love the peace babys! Or toddler mimi’s. Great pictures!

    • Oh gosh, that will kill me too! Although I have so many “big girl shoes” that seem ridiculous now because all she wears is Trumpettes! The Mary Janes are so, so cute. I bet your little angel would look precious in the peace babies or toddler mimis. And thank you!! xo

  15. I adore the ballerina socks. I have an 8 month old and I would love to see them on her.

    I absolutely love Trumpette socks! Not only does my daughter wear them almost daily, but they are a definite go-to for shower gifts. One of the sets we don’t have yet is the Zoey collection. (I’ve been hoping to find them in Zullily or on sale) these would be perfect for my daughter Zoey! ( I also follow them on Instagram and FB)
    Thanks for the opportunity!

    • They’re my go-to shower gift too. I love seeing people open them – especially those who’ve never seen Trumpettes before. Sounds like you’ve got a good collection started – I hope to get there soon. Zoey definitely needs the Zoey collection! It’s her namesake!!

    I bought a set of giovanni socks two and half years ago for my baby boy. They looked great, from the early months untill his first steps. And as in Portugal they are still quite unknown, he was an absolute success wherever we went! Now I am 8 months pregnant with a baby girl and I would simply adore to have the Lucy’s socks! I Love that bow!
    I am already following trumpette on Facebook and Instangram (anasbap). I will follow this blog as soon as I fins the button on this smartphone.

    • Congratulations on new about your sweet baby girl! She definitely needs the Lucy’s – the bow is my favorite. I love that you are a trendsetter in Portugal!

  18. My great-grandson would love to wear the bright organic baby socks with earth related words.

  19. I love the toddler popstars for my son who is 18 1/2 months. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the Toddler Popstars! My chunky 10 month old has some chubby feet so I can’t really get shoes on him!

    • What a cute problem to have! Chubby babies are the cutest. Isla was born very skinny and is chunking up and we love it. The Popstars are so sweet. Good choice!
