Fair Isle Sweater, Fringe Boots and a Bucket

"Can we name the baby Bucket?" 
That was the latest name suggestion from Princess Sparkles
She loves to make up unusual names for the baby (i.e. Nook-Nook or Ula). 
She puts her hand on my belly and squeals with excitement when the baby kicks. 
Pigtails likes to ram her head into the baby and use my belly as her pillow. 

FAIR ISLE CARDIGAN - Sweet Romeo via Loehmanns
GRAY SHIRT - Motherhood Maternity
BLACK LEGGINGS - Old Navy
BRACELET - Forever 21
FRINGE BOOTS - Forever 21

This cozy sweater is another early Christmas present my sister, Polka Dots, bought me from Loehmanns on Black Friday.  I really love fair isle!  I'm also obsessed with fringe and so glad I bought these boots last year at Forever 21. 

Princess Sparkles:  "I know, we'll call him Bucket!"

I always find it best to purchase any and every shoe you might like at F21 because if you don't, they either run out of your size or you'll never see it again.  And there's nothing worse than shoe regret... Except maybe being 8 months pregnant and having someone sit on your belly.

I'm slowly falling in love with fairisle myself though I have yet to own any. The cardi is lovely, love that it wraps around and loving the fringe boots! There's a pair I'm eyeing myself :)

Those boots are the cutest! I don't know about naming your baby Bucket, but MJ did name his son Blanket so it probably wouldn't be that strange if you think about it....

That sweater is so cute! I love the print and it looks quite cozy. Those boots are insanely cool. The fringe is amazing! I adore Princess Sparkles' outfit too! Bucket is definitely an interesting choice... At least you would know that no other kid would have that name!

Your fringed boots are fantastic.

The Jones said...

Oh my lands, those fringed boots are AWESOME...I have shoe regret over them! I have terrible times at F21 though, their shoes generally just do not fit my feet, alas :( Also, that sweater is on my coveted list right now--I hugely want a fair isle sweater with that kind of tribal blanket feel. Looks amazing!

I haven't popped by in a while, but I must say: You look GORGEOUS. Happy December to you!

LOL how funny. When I came home today, my oldest son (11) informed me that he is naming his first kid Mason. Interesting . . . I told him that he has a while to think about it. Like 20 years.

I love your pretty sweater! And these fringed boots are sooooooooo cute! I totally agree with you about F21 footwear. I bought a truckload of boots from them earlier this year . . . just in case.

Sunny & Star said...

You might just have to throw Bucket in there as a middle name. lol.

I always hate it when I talk myself out of buying something and when I go back later to get it, it is gone.

That is a great cozy cardi. I lave fair isle as well.
Your daughters are too funny with the baby names. Agree with u on the shoe policy. Same goes for TJ Maxx, u see it and like it, must buy it. If u Change your mind u can return it.

I don't know why you started your blog. But you have created such a great journal for you babies! I'm sure one day they will treasure every post and comment.
And how dare you tease that little princess about making up names.....where do you think she got it?
Your sweater is beautiful and so are you. I hope you are taking care of yourself and feeling well.

Elle Sees said...

when my sister was born, i insisted on her being named The Mitten. She was a Jessica and born in July. Idk where I got that from either.

Elliot MacLeod-Michael said...

What's wrong with the name Buckets? I think she may be onto something.

Vanessa said...

haaha! Bucket! What a little cutie for making that suggestion! I guess if MJ can name his Blanket, why not Bucket for yours?
I love the sweater and the boots. Such cozy pieces and yet so stylish!

Your fringe stuff is inspiring. I
am definitely putting it on my wish
list. I like the way Sparkles thinks. Bucket is kinda cute for a
nickname. I wonder what her inspiration was.

Kassi said...

B. That sweater is adorable
C. At least no other kid would have the name "bucket" :)

Plus F21 shoes are so affordable you might as well buy em when you see em and they have turned out to be some of my most comfortable shoes! Love your fringe boots Claire!

Tara said...

Ha! It's probably pretty hard explaining mommy's pregnant tummy isn't a pillow to a toddler :)

Love that sweater. Seriously gorgeous!

And I like Bucket...you could call the baby Bucky for short ;)

Irene (Couture-Petite.com) said...

Very cute sweater and I love your bangs! I just cut mine a bit too short so I'm super appreciating well done straight bangs at the moment. ;)

Meagan said...

That sweater is perfection. Love your boots too!

I'm sorry for the unrelated question but would you perhaps show me where to get this blog theme? I would like to get the same website design or perhaps one that is similar to yours.

Hmmm… I can easily find out the existing moral and will try to implement the same stuff in my next blog but with different mode.
