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?

Wednesday, July 28

The last few days we spent on vacation, in bathing suits. She wore Kate Mack for 4 days straight.

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 ;)

Thursday, July 22

I should probably be more aware of where I'm taking these shots. I just snap, without thinking of the pile of crap that just fell of the kitchen table earlier in the day, or the fact that my table has piles of Riley's clothes on it. Oh, well. I'm sure this paints a fairly accurate picture of our hectic lives, but I promise....sometimes my house is picked up ;)

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!!

Top is Janie & Jack, bottoms are Naartjie capris from last year. Thanks again, Sara. We appreciate your sweetness as always :)

Don't mind the straps, Riley wasn't having any of that prim & proper nonsense today.

Meet the Charli dress from Loves Me Not (Knot, I'm k/not quite sure since I didn't order from them directly). I fell in love with it when this dress launched on the website, but unfortunately since I have a life I missed out on ordering it. When that site goes live with new items, you have to literally check out with it in your cart the minute it comes up. It makes for a certain exclusivity, but is unfortunate since many customers would be head over heels to order a gem like this. I pouted for awhile and was bitter, but eventually I forgot about it. Then I found it in a listing on GF one day and bought it right away. It is so girly and gorgeous, my only concern is how well it will hold up in the wash. Keep your fingers crossed for me, Riley says it's her favorite dress now, so it's bound to get washed frequently!

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.

This set is from Naartjie and she has only worn it once when we were in California visiting with Michelle, Sara, and their girls. It's a cute and comfy set, I just tend to forget about the comfy sets. The capris are the lawn ruffle capris and I don't have a clue what the top nor the headscarf are called but I love this set for lounging at home.

I don't care to waste money on "holiday/seasonal" clothing, I'm a firm believer in making whatevers in your closet work. Is it really necessary to wear a red, white and blue dress with stars on Independence Day? Absolutely not. I think Little Marc Jacobs (skirt) mixed with Matilda Jane's Elaina (shirt) and a beautiful flower from LBB will suffice. This is one of my favorite outfits of the season, and the skirt is something that will definitely transition with us into fall.
