This is Riley's friend, TG and Riley after a lunch date. It's not often that I have the honor of posting a picture of two adorably dressed little Gap girls! :)
Riley is wearing her Abbey Road shift mini dress, for the last time because it is officially TOO short. But I love it, so I am happy I squeezed one last wear out of it. Today we paired with the usual matching knee socks from Baby Gap and shoes from Target but added a military style jacket from the same line that I picked up on sale for $9.99 a couple weeks ago. It adds a entire new level to the outfit and makes it weather appropriate, since the short sleeves of this dress no longer are. The polka dot purple piggie bows are from the lovely Sara :)
....PS-- that's day two of a smiling Riley picture. Beware the icicles that may rise up from below tonight, because I think hell just froze over. ;)

We tried rolling her hair to see if the hot mess could be maintained.
It could not.
I guess it's a blessing that she finally has hair to deal with, after two years of bow bands. :)

Picture is not from today, because I barely saw Riley today. For the few hours that she was dressed she was wearing her Gymboree Wild One ensemble with the matching marabou headband from loveable creations on etsy. Totally adorable, and perfect for miss sassypants! Sadly, her zebra stripe jeans have seen their last days and I am now on the hunt for comfy zebra pants to stretch the life of this outfit. Leave any tips you may have via comments ;)

You know it's one of those days when this is the best fashion blog picture I could get. Today was full of toddler drama over Strawberry Shortcake. Apparently, watching SS 5 times in a row just isn't enough. Then, she wanted to take this outfit off and wear her Strawberry shortcake shirt.
She doesn't own one. I think I opened up a can of worms when I bought her that Hello Kitty shirt.
I forced her into Baby Gap Chelsea line today from head to toe. The bow is from our bow frienemy Pink Hippo. Love their bows, but hate the price gouging. Fortunately, there are so many other bow makers out there that have fabulous bows at reasonable prices-- but I bought a ton from PH when I was young(er) and naive, new Mom shopaholic syndrom I suppose!

Another Hello Kitty junk food tee from Gap today, thanks so much to Debbie who was so sweet to give it to Riley as a Halloween goodie. She is too sweet to us, and Riley loves her HK tee dearly :) Paired with bows from the lovely Sara, and her new (size 4t! :eek:) boyfriend jeans from Gap. Girlfriend is growing like a weed lately, it's getting hard to keep up! She was in a playful, lovey mood today-- even semi cooperated with having her picture taken!

I love rain, but I HATE my pictures sucking from the terrible dark weather and bad lighting of my living room. No, I'm not an amazing photographer, but I'm pretty decent in natural light and this light is killing me. Guess I better get accustomed to using my darn flash.
This set is a favorite, but sadly the skirt and collared shirt are making a last appearance. The headband is from LittleBeautyBoutique on etsy, The shirts are from Crewcuts, the skirt and boots from Baby Gap. :) No, the skirt isn't insanely short, it's just scrunched up from Riley removing it and "fixing" it herself.

End of the day picture, already repeating this Gap Deauville favorite!
Today we mixed it up a little bit with knee socks from Target and a Flower Clip (clipped onto a black crotched headband) from White House Black Market ($25). Perfect match, even if I did have to buy it at an expensive adult store. My Gap didn't get the headband, and you know I needed something for her noggin to match! ;)

We'll call this her "Home from Catholic School" look. :)
The key to Riley's wardrobe is layering inexpensive basics/"side dishes" with more expensive "main course", such as the MJ jacket in this case. I like to center an entire outfit around one key "WOW" piece. Beyond adorable and it keeps your budget in check.
The chambray jeans are from Baby Gap, the brown layering tank from Old Navy and the blue flower clip is from Pink Hippo.

Another day in Baby Gap! The striped tights and dress are from the Crazy Stripes line, and perfect for our cold weather! The boots are also from Baby Gap and the bow is from Von Maur. Not much for a picture today, little one couldn't be bothered to smile at the camera or listen to anything Mommy said to do today. Oh, two year olds :)
It was a little chilly today, but I wanted to take this Gap Abbey Road number for one last spin before it snows here which is bound to happen this week.
I just love the colors of this set, my favorite color is pink, but Riley rocks the navy and purples so I tend to buy sets with those colors in it when avaliable. This mini dress and knee high set did not disappoint.
Sara made the lovely polka dot piggie bows for us and the mini bang clip is from Target, as were the shoes.

This picture......kills me haha. Riley is such a pretty girl, but good lord-- you throw a camera on her and some of the faces she makes crack me up.
This is from Gap's newest line, Deuville. Her hair has been a hot mess lately, but we're working on it. The striped tights are a favorite, but I don't know how I feel about the black mini.
I really need to learn how to use my flash.
This is from Baby Gap's newest line, and it's black and white and you know that right there is grounds for the entire line coming home with me. Okay, maybe not the ENTIRE line....but a good 6 outfits or so. This skirt is my favorite piece from the entire line, paired with the corsage shirt and white plain tights and bow with black Target shoes-- this is classic, elegant and adorable....even for a day of just running errands.
