Mommy and Me Outfits

macys-mommy-and-me-matching-ice-cream-dress

I love dressing in matching outfits with my daughter and until now, there haven’t been a ton of options available. You can always match with similar patterns like stripes or coordinate your color palette but it is hard to find things in both adult and children’s sizes.

Macy’s is capitalizing on this trend and has released a ton of new outfits in both adult and children’s sizes!  There are dresses, pajamas, athletic wear, aprons and even something for your newborn!

Fall!

Today is the first day of Fall and I celebrated by breaking out some of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases!

I *love* the Bobeau fleece open cardigan (sadly sold out) and the Naturalizer Jennings boots that I bought in July.  The cardigan is so soft and comfy and I got lots of compliments on it today!  I wish it were not sold out because I really want to get a second one!

The boots are also very comfortable and required no break-in period. I wore them to work and had no pain at the end of the day.

Happy Fall everyone!

More Photos from Lilly Pulitzer and Target Designer Collaboration!

The Lilly Pulitzer and Target team have put together an Instagram account to show off some photos of the goodies to come.  I love that we can see the prints in detail here.  Apparently there are 15 prints in total, so these are just a few that we can expect from the collection!  As a reminder, the collection comes out on April 19, 2015!

This Flower Print is my Favorite!

Liberty of London Love

When we went to London last year on our family vacation, I met up with a friend who introduced me to the Liberty department store and Liberty Art Fabrics.  I completely fell in love and since then, I’ve been noticing Liberty of London prints everywhere!  Funny how that happens!  It is definitely a very specific look and not for everyone, as it is kind of old fashioned, but I love it in small doses.

The Liberty department store was really cool–shaped like a ship and had a whole floor devoted to haberdashery–mostly fabrics and notions.  The neat thing about Liberty prints is that they are used by many different companies.  Hello Kitty, Peek Clothing and even Target have all done collaborations with Liberty.

Liberty of London sold bolts of fabric in various Hello Kitty prints and Sanrio made special Hello Kitty items with the prints.  They were so cute!  I wish I had the talent to sew something special with the fabric for my daughter but alas, my sewing skills leave much to be desired!

I’ve seen that Peek has used Liberty of London art fabrics for the past few years that I have known about them.  I don’t know if its a permanent thing or not, but I’m glad they are an option!  Peek clothing looks really well made and has cute designs.  It is a little more expensive than what I normally buy for my toddler but I would definitely splurge on a special outfit.

The Liberty for Target collaboration happened a few years ago before I had ever heard of Liberty (and was not paying too much attention to Target designer collabs!) so its a bummer I missed out because there are some really cute items in apparel and home.  Fingers crossed they might do a return collection someday?

Have you seen Liberty of London prints around?  Do you love it or is it not really your style?

Styling My Family for Professional Photos

Anthropologie Rosado Sheath

My husband and I have decided that we will do family photos every so often now that we have a baby.  Since it is quite an investment in both time and money to have professional portraits taken, I like to plan out what we are all going to wear so that we look stylish and coordinated.

I found this dress on Anthropologie and I *love* how it looks on me.  I think the colors are beautiful and the cut is very flattering. I purchased it in petites and it seems to be the perfect length for my 5’0 tall frame.  Now that I have my dress, I need to figure out what to dress my husband and daughter in.

I was thinking I might put my daughter in the Little Me dress I got her at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I think the Navy color will look good against my dress, but I’m wondering if she will stand out enough? I want her to be the center of attention, not me.  I am wondering if the white and pink colorblocking will help enough?  Hmm…

I also have to figure out what to put my husband in.  I love the way Calvin Klein slim shirts look on him.  We bought him some roll-cuff ones last year and he wore those in our photos.  He suggested wearing the same one again but I think we actually need a dark blue one.

I am thinking something like this, but in a dark blue. I couldn’t find any on the Macys.com site but I am sure if I go into the store they will have something.  As an added bonus, Macys is having a Men’s private sale in store starting Thursday with 25% off your purchase of over $100.  I am wondering if coupons will stack on top of this deal.  Macy’s doesn’t usually let you use 2 coupons, but I will ask if the 25% off the total purchase counts as a coupon or not.
