Florals, Argyle and Something Personal

"Daddy has so hot laps!"
Pigtails protested when Camouflage offered to brush her teeth.
She always has a unique way of expressing herself.
Whether it's what she says or what she wears
(Pigtails loves pairing polka dots with polka dots or hearts with stripes).
She definitely has confidence and never ceases to entertain me.
 
BLACK MAXI DRESS - Target, $8
BROWN PONCHO - Forever 21, $4.50
BRACELET - {Share} and Do Good
DREAM CATCHER EARRINGS - iSanctuary
CAMOUFLAGE FLATS - Target

GRAY FLORAL SKINNIES - Target
WHITE T-SHIRT - Target
ARGYLE CARDI - Old Navy
NECKLACE - H&M
BLACK SPIKEY FLATS - Target



Here are a couple outfits from the week.  The black maxi and brown poncho were both on clearance.  The camouflage flats I fell in love with from Target.  I also decided to pair some floral jeans with an argyle cardi, which I'm linking up with "Inspiration Monday."  I had been searching for a pair of spikey black flats and was thrilled when I saw them at... Target.  They're edgy and comfy too! 

Pigtails and Bucket check out their new personalized water bottles!

I wanted to give a special thanks to Sarah and Personal Creations for kindly sending my little ones personalized gifts.  There were so many cool things to choose from - personalized backpacks, pillowcases and even nap mats (check 'em out HERE)!  In the end I picked these fabulous water bottles because not only are they cute, they're functional.  They're also big, they don't leak (a serious pet peeve of mine!) and each kid knows which one is theirs! 




It's so fun to see how excited my kids get when they get something with their name on it.  Suddenly the item becomes personal and they feel special.  It's kind of like an outfit.  Whether you're pairing florals and argyle or polka dots with polka dots, it's how each person puts it together that makes it unique!

your outfit shots are awesome as always (the second outfit is my favourite) and those fancy princess dresses the girls are wearing are super cute :)

I remember adoring anything with my name on as a child (which didn't happen often because I have a weird name!) so I can imagine how excited they were! Love your outfits! I love the fact there is also a random Belle from Beauty and the beast in the photos too!x

done, that's it. I'm in love with the top/poncho-y thing over the maxi dress. it's effortlessly chic, yet still comfy and boho. LOVE IT. also, those Disney outfits are to die for... and I love the encouragement you have for your little one's individual style, you're going to raise some confident, fashionable little guys :)
