I was wondering what shops / websites you use to buy clothes for your baby girls? DD is 4 mo and wears a mix of M&S, Next and Boden but I'm starting to find it all a bit samey. I don't mind a bit of pink but think she looks better in other colours (purple / turquoise) so try to find stuff that isn't baby pink if I can.

All do a selection of other colours amongst the pink! TKMaxx often have some good stuff, Scandi prints. Also check out boys stuff- pretty good for plain or patterned brights - not all has car logos and slogans on.
I really like Nutmeg from Morrisons/Kiddicare, though it's annoying as you can only buy in the shop. Luckily MIL has a good eye and sends us a lot of stuff from there. Lots of yellows, purples and greens that all go well together. They did some fantastic skinny cords that were still very soft and flexible.
Most of our clothes are from Asda, Matalan Next and H&M. I tend to just buy a lot of leggings in greys and blues and then put lighter colour tops on DD. Asda do an amazing 2 pack of black leggings for about £5 that are washing so well, and they're very practical for childcare.
And I go through eBay regularly - plenty of parents don't like girls in lots of pink, so if someone like that is selling clothes online you can often get a job lot!
My DD lives in turquoise and purple - I got some good things at John Lewis and some great purple skinny cords at Boots for £6! John lewis long sleeved vests with the poppers from the boys section are great - actually always look at boys stuff for basics.
