Double The Fuzzy Vests

When TJ + I arrived home on Sunday afternoon from our night away, we wanted to do something fun with Harper. So, while she napped, we brainstormed a few ideas. Some more elaborate than others… and eventually settled on the simplest one of all: grabbing her first hot coco + heading to the train station in the Orange Circle to watch the “choo choos” go by (they’re pretty frequent at this station). To see her face light up at the sight of the trains was seriously the best feeling…. and it reminded me that there really isn’t a greater feeling than seeing your child’s face light up in sheer joy… and that sometimes it’s in the small moments that it happens the most (I mean, she didn’t even smile like this at Disneyland…..).

Since the evenings get cooler (thankfully, because the days have been in the 80’s lately…. #WhereWasFall #WhereIsWinter….) we pulled out some cozy layering pieces to stay warm. I recently purchased this fuzzy fur vest for Harper, and she literally wouldn’t take it off … or let go of that hot coco either…. So I guess she was just living her #BestLife. I mean, “choo choos,” hot coco, + a comfy fuzzy vest… does life get much better for a two year old (annnnd, why was I in such a hurry to grow up??)….

All that to say, the holiday season is filled with those moments where her face just lights up. From the “iiights” (aka lights), music, and tree she’s in a constant state of excitement (with an occasional melt down thrown in there to remind us that she hasn’t gone too far….), so I can’t wait for Christmas morning (I’m still wondering if she’ll understand the concept yet, but I have hopes….). I purchased her a few items from this post, and plan on getting her a few cute pieces of clothing too, so I thought I would share with you a clothing gift guide, from Nordstrom (since it’s one of my favorite places to find adorable clothing items for her), for the little ones, just in case you’re looking to make that purchase for a little tike you know, or your own.

1. Shoes: I like to start here, since Harper is a shoe lover. A few great options include these rain boots (gender neutral, or gender specific depending on color), adorable leopard print mocs, pretty little glitter kicks, and these pom sneaks. For the little guys, these adidas kicks + these mid-top velcro kicks are super stylish options.

2. Dresses: Love tossing on a dress with some tights when Harper and I are heading out to something a little special… a few favorites include this plaid flutter sleeve dress (so cute for the holidays too) and this ruffle sleeve stripe sweatshirt dress.

3. Bottoms: For those days when it’s too cold for bare legs, I’m kinda loving this skirt/leggings combo…. and this tulle blush skirt is gorgeous for the holidays (or under the tree…). annnnd, can we just talk about these adorable velvet stirrup leggings?? For the little guys, I always love joggers + a good pair of slightly distressed dark wash jeans.

4. Tops: Cute tops are super easy to pair with jeggings on a rushed morning. I’m loving this cute little star top, and recently purchased Harper this metallic ruffle sleeve tunic.  A hooded thermal the boys is always a cute option, as is stripe henley.

5. Outerwear: My all time favorite is this faux fur jacket that Harper wore all throughout Park City, but I also recently bought her this motto jacket for Christmas. This nylon olive green bomber jacket is a great option for the little guys.

Hopefully between today’s post and last week’s you have your little one covered!
