I always thought I’d be into really girly clothes if/when I had a girl, but it seems the instant I got pregnant, and knew we were having a girl, that changed. Now I’m all anti-pink and purple or anything super girly. Neutrals without much going on (like flowers and bubblegum) totally draw me in. I like the idea of having a simple outfit with one thing special to stand out.
Pinterest is such a fun site to get lost in. I pretty much do it daily. I have a board of little girl clothes that’s been inspiring how I want to dress our little girl. I’m under no illusion that she’s going to be dressed all cute, all the time, but I’m hoping to throw lots of different pieces into her wardrobe that capture some of these elements. And I also think I’ll begin bettering my sewing skills as I find fabric that I love and turn it into something for her to wear.
Here are some of the things I’ve been pinning…
If you’ve seen our house, you know we love grey, black and white… which maybe is also why I like that for clothes.
Neato arrow prints.
Leggings WITH owls?! Whoooooooo wouldn’t want that?
Mustard… I love
Cozy sweaters and cardigans
And leg warmers.
Of course, the dress I made I love. Birds and mustard.
Just plain fun and cute
I don’t hate all pink
… see pink!
I totally wish I could redo my own wardrobe and dress myself like this… but it’s much cheaper and easier to buy/make itty bitty clothes, so I’ll have to slowly morph my closet as I create hers too. Although, I’m sure many of these clothes I pinned come at a pretty penny, so making might be my best bet. We shall see!
Oh and before I forget, the winner for the pie cookbook giveaway is #8!
