When she's not busy trying to be the next T.Swift:
She's busy practicing ballet for her future with the ABA.
She's VERY professional and dedicated to that dream.
And when she isn't in dance class or frolicking around cornfields in a dream-like pixie state, she's dreaming about her "boyfriend" Alex, who moved across the pond.
Alex, this smile is for you.
Because you're the bribe that it takes to get a 3 year old girl to smile apparently. She was very adamant about the fact that this smile was for Alex, and not for Mommy in the slightest.
So apart from being obsessed with becoming a country music sensation/professional ballerina, she is also boy crazy.

It is amazing how much one child can grow and change in a year.

One can never go wrong when wearing the fabulous Marc Jacobs.....except maybe when you forget to wear bottoms and put navy knee highs with brown cowgirl boots. *Shudder*

Last wear: Thursday, June 24
Line: Janie & Jack Sweet Coral Reef, bows are Twinkerbelles
Doesn't she look SO tall now? She's just a smidge under 42 inches, almost tall enough to ride rollercoasters. I remember when she wore this line at 1 year, where did my little chubby baby girl go?

Now that we are home, Riley isn't really sure why she should have to wear actual clothes. Unfortunately, coming home from a trip means I have a bunch of stuff to catch up on and she had to put on something to leave the house.
She came up with this. She also wore her shoes on the wrong feet and had a boa, but threw them off before I could get a picture of the ridiculousness. I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle here, guys.
I knew that wearing a petti in public meant adding an extra 5-10 mins in every place we had to "run into". I was right. Riley kept asking why everyone was talking to her today, and I told her it was because she looked like Zsa Zsa Gabor. She laughed (as if she knew who I was comparing her to), and said "Noooo Mommy, it's because I look FABULOUS!"........Er, sure, Ri.
But I would like to say thank you to our wonderful friend Debbie who gave this princess shirt to Riley for her birthday, she loves it :) .....Maybe too much ;)
Shirt: Baby Gap Junk Food tee
Skirt: etsy pettiskirt
Hairstyle: Half up, bow by Sara

Times now worn: 3 (1 not pictured)

Line: Janie & Jack Flamingo Drive
So you probably think I'm slacking. That I have better things to do than take a daily picture of Riley's clothes for this blog. Well, that's only partially true- but the real culprit behind the lack of entries this week is Miss Riley. I'm fairly certain she declared it "Naked Week", avoiding clothes at all costs. She was pretty bummed when I explained (for the thousandth time) that we cannot go out in public in the nude, and forced this adorable Janie & Jack set on her. True feelings about this are captured in picture above.
Times now worn: 2 --TWO?!?!? That is absolutely ridiculous as this is my FAVORITE in her closet right now. I think the fact that we lost the first pair of pants to a rust stain halted wearing it for awhile, so thank you so much to my wonderfully generous friend Sara for sending us replacement bottoms!!
Last wear: Wednesday, March 31
Top is Janie & Jack, bottoms are Naartjie capris from last year. Thanks again, Sara. We appreciate your sweetness as always :)

Line: Janie & Jack's Spring Celebration
I'm embarrassed to admit this is only the second time she has worn this dress because it was lost in the nevereverland of my closet. It's absolutely stunning and has the most beautiful detailing. Riley loves it because it's one of the softest dresses she owns, and I lost it....for a month and a half. Shame on me. This will be worn a thousand (or 5) more times before summer is over, I love this dress!
......And for those of you who are curious, that hunk of haulage in front of her is for my beauty blog. Don't laugh, it's my other vain hobby.

I finally gave Riley her first haircut. You probably don't notice a difference, but it's shorter now because I evened the back out. Until now, she had a lovely rat tail that went halfway down her back. It was thick too, and starting to become difficult to style in a way that didn't make it look crazy. It broke my heart to cut her hair since it took her about three years to grow it, but it needed to be done in order to maintain her gorgeous healthy curls. Hopefully it will be easier to do her hair the rest of the summer now!
The dress that is on backwards (she's a defiant little thing....) is from Gymboree.

She is wearing her Janie & Jack Sweet Coral Reef dress for the third time this summer. The colors are just gorgeous, and I can't resist throwing her in it when we have such beautiful bows from Twinkerbelles to boot!

We headed to the zoo, and what better time to sport some new(ish) giraffe themed Gymboree? This is not the best picture from the day, but I thought the real giraffe accented her belt so beautifully. I'm loving little rompers like this for humid summer days, but they are not conducive to potty training in any way.
I have no idea of the line name as I've been "off Gymbo" for the summer. During the warmer months, I usually gravitate towards Janie & Jack and boutique clothing- I just think frilly little dresses are the best for summer, but I am loving the romper look lately.

Stretching out a last wear on the Matilda Jane Damsel in a Dress using the Naartjie lipstick colored ruffle leggings. Besides the Elaina, this is probably our last piece of Matilda Jane.

Times now worn: 2
Last wear: March 24
Brand/line: Janie & Jack Spring Celebration top & headband, Target shorts.
Horrible picture, sorry. Changed the look up slightly with a pair of bermudas from Target as she outgrew the capris that were very similar from the last wear.
The shoes are Saltwater sandals in the Sweetheart style.
