About Us

It all started when my first nephew was born. I grew up boating and have a passion for the water and anything nautical, so I wanted to outfit James with cute nautical wear for the summer. I went to nauticalbaby.com, and it took me to a seaside furniture store (it will now take you to Lakeshore Baby). I continued to search online. While I could find a few pieces through different designers, there was no one place for just cute nautical baby clothing. The idea emerged!
My good friend Kristin, who had worked in baby boutiques and had industry knowledge, wanted to help. So, a great partnership was formed!
While keeping up with our day jobs, we’ve worked nights and weekends to bring the brand to life. The idea was born in Chicago and we are proud to say our clothes are designed and manufactured in the Windy City.
Just as Lakeshore Drive is an iconic street in Chicago, we want Lakeshore Baby to be the iconic brand in nautical baby clothing.
We hope that you enjoy the brand and love the clothes as much as we do! Happy Shopping!
 Katie and her nephew Alexander who is a constant inspiration enjoying quality boat time!
Kristin, always the girl in pearls!
