Flower Head Bands and My Blog Turns 1!

Pigtails loves a head band.
Mostly because her sister loves a head band.
Sometimes she'll wear it in her hair, just like Princess Sparkles.
But other times she'll do her own thing and wear it...differently.
She's always surprising me with her creativity.
I think she might be a fashion genius.
(I'm not biased or anything)

BLACK AND WHITE DRESS - Motherhood Maternity (thrifted), $2.50
BLACK CARDIGAN - Motherhood Maternity, $15
BOW EARRINGS - Gifted from Polly (a blog friend from Bulgaria)
BLACK BOOTIES - Madden Girl (thrifted), $10




Today began my 38th week of pregnancy.  I can't believe it!  I'm also proud to say after I wore this black and white one, I've now worn every single maternity dress I own (and I have a lot of them!).  There are a few pants and skirts I haven't worn yet, but hey, I have two more weeks...maybe.  I also wore these cute bow earrings that I received from my "Secret Santa," Polly, who lives in Bulgaria and has a wonderfully stylish blog, Polly's Boudoir!

My "fashion genius" models a tutu of flower head bands.

A few days ago my blog turned 1!  I can't believe it's been a year since I started.  So much has happened over the last year.  Not only has my style evolved but I've gotten pregnant and figured out what I like to blog about (fashion and my kids!).  I've also made some amazing blog friends!  Thank you for being part of the journey!  I may not be a "fashion genius" but I have really enjoyed doing this blog!
