I never used to be late (ever). I was the early girl. You said be there at 10:30… I was there at 10:25. Since becoming a mom, and essentially being responsible for getting two humans completely ready, the early bird within me has gone away. I’m not late, just typically right on time. It all starts out fine. I’m almost always ready on schedule…. it’s when it comes to dressing little miss that things go downhill. It’s just too fun. I sit there, looking through her drawers, putting little mini outfits together, until I land on one that fits her mood for the day (well, I’m guessing here….). It’s pretty much been like that since day one… and not much has changed…
Given that, you can only imagine how distracted I get when I’m actually shopping for her. It doesn’t matter if it’s on-line or in store… it takes me twice as long as it does to shop for myself. Too much cuteness abounds. So, why I thought it would be a good idea to stop and peruse the little lady section in Nordstrom when I was on my way to meet a girlfriend for lunch is beyond me (I was early too….). There were just too many adorable spring pieces that caught my eye. From pretty pastels, to adorable stripes, and even the cutest basics… I couldn’t help myself. I ended up walking out with these adorable chambray bloomers and pink moto jacket for Harper….
Whenever I’m shopping for her, I try to find pieces that I can mix and match with items she already owns (pretty much exactly how I shop for myself). Lots of denim mixed in with brighter options like this adorable striped top. I also opt for feminine pieces and I love this stripe flowy tank and short set, embroidered chambray dress, embroidered denim shorts (obsessed), cute little floral bubble romper, and adorable embroidered flutter sleeve tee. Some of my favorite basics for her include these denim leggings (I have purchased them for her several times over the year), joggers (another item I buy for her across seasons… more color options here for boys and girls), and this lightweight cardigan which go with pretty much any item she has. I also think stripes are great for little boys too (and obviously for little miss too…) and love this top + jogger combination. I also think this basic bomber is a great option for little guys with the shifting spring temps.
Here’s to hoping tomorrow morning we can get out on time!
