Girly Fun

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- One of the most FUN parts of having a girl is dressing them up. Nothing beats shopping for a little girl! Boys are fun too- but sorry guys… girl shopping out beats them. The dresses, the bows, the frills, the colors… it’s all so fun and often times irresistible for my pocket book! And even though my daughter has gotten a little older to the phase where she now enjoys dressing herself (Like seriously- I have to barter with her to get my way), she’ll typically almost always pick a dress or skirt. And DON’T forget the bow!

We had so much fun twinning in these bliss tulle skirts – the perfect outfit for a mommy/daughter or girlfriend (why not?!) photo shoot. Not gonna lie though, don’t be fooled by some of these “pretty” posed pictures. Let me give you a little insight into the behind-the-scenes reality: there was ice cream everywhere… we’re talking, down the elbows, all over our shoe laces, mouths covered. It was a hot 90 degree day in Sacramento and shooting with a double scooped ice cream cone just sounded right for the part. It was worth it.

This is the skirt I’m wearing & This is the skirt Ella is wearing. There are so many different colors/lengths/styles to choose from, too!

P.S. Please notice my awesome nails. I had 2 seconds to paint them in the car on the way to our shoot so four fingers had to go without 🙂 Why try to hide it- haha #thestruggeisreal #momlife

    Looking for the top your daughter wore in the other tutu photos , I think it was a white dressy tank top. Do you know who makes that top ? absolutely love the outfits.
