dressing a kid – spring edition – baby girl

i thought i’d be better at this.  i’ve designed kid’s clothes for years.  i’ve been opinionated and researched… i’ve followed how kids dress since long before i’d even thought i’d have any.  then you have one, and suddenly you realize… they need to be warm.  they have opinions of their own (didn’t see that one coming). retail doesn’t support what the actual weather is (when will THAT happen- does it really need to be all shorts in february?).  it’s hard.  and i started with a boy, so… now i have a girl, and i remember how i used to dress him, and they don’t even sell clothes like that for girls.  he used to be comfy.  dresses?  when do you put on a dress?  every day?  it’s impossible to crawl in a dress.  it’s boggling.  but we have a first birthday approaching, so i thought i’d see what’s out there.  this is what i came up with.  of course i’m not buying any of it.  i’m considering buying fabric and making something.  but it’s good inspiration.  and since the high is 57 today, i might have to pick up a cardi and some tights.

first row- crew cuts – that’s a cashmere sweater and the little dress is a liberty print!

second row- gap – by far my fave, i’m in love with the kelly and navy.

third row – target – i wanted that cardigan in every color- so cute and affordable.

fourth row – old navy – that $9 dress is can’t miss, and it comes in 6 different prints.

can you believe i actually asked someone for a photo?  me neither.  the last time i posted a style photo was last september!  and that photo was one i’d found that i never posted.  who knows when i actually took it!  it was nice to get out this weekend, even if it was the briefest of trips (sooooo windy and cold that morning, and TWO whiny kids who needed food).  i’m hoping for more excursions and getting about as it slowly warms/dries.

1- grime and grime and grime and grime under the lip of this ancient counter.  soap, toothbrush, and then PAINT.

2- cool old what might have been copper cupboard vent.  under 4 layers of paint.  scraped and painted.

3- original hardware.  who knew a long soak in hot water would get off every speck of paint? Read more →
