Some Petti things

Feeling both spooky and girly, Wren and I rocked our petti coats today.

We were also feeling TRES tired. I had one of the worst sleeps I can remember, and as soon as I finally drifted off to the land of nod this little bird decided to pull a kamakazi and hit the floor. We all jumped out of bed and couldn't seem to settle back in.

Wren doesn't appear to hold any grudges over the matter, but I cannot say the same for myself.

On Thursday mornings my mom comes over and picks Wren up to go to Gymboree classes so I had a few hours to myself. If it wasn't for those few hours I am highly doubtful that I would have even changed out of my PJs.

But we had planned a rare trip to Costco for Halloween candy with my sister, so I decided to take my fashion cues from Wren's outfit. Some days I go a little dressy and do a blazer, like this one.

But most days I throw on a denim jacket to keep it casual. It is a great excuse to feel like a girl and while I get the rare blank stare, so many people stop and say how much they love it.

When I wear it to our dance class on Fridays all the little girls flock to me and try to hold my hand or sit in my lap. If for that reason alone, it is my favorite piece of clothing.

And speaking of girly, I have a fun project and some furniture tomorrow that will bring out the little girl in all of us.

Wren is the cutest little girl! So adorable in that orange tutu! She could be a little model. She's a doll. You look adorable, too, Holly! I love your outfil! I applaud you for wearing what you want. It's a fun outfit. Great photos of the two of you! May I ask you where you found your black boots?

Holly and Sean said...

Thanks so much Allison! She definitely has enough attitude to be a diva model~

The boots are from Juicy Couture.
Have a yummy night!

Hi Holly! Great pictures! Little Wren's hair is getting long! I love your grey petticoat, I dont see it on their website. Did you get it recently? How much? Thank you.

Thanks Kelly!!
I bought it off her etsy site, but I can't find the link right now. If you email her whippy email I am sure she will be able to help you out. I can't remember the exact price but I want to say $80 or $90.

You and Wren are beyond precious! As a mama of two little boys I think a Whippy Cake Petti Coat would add just the right amount of GIRLY to my days! :)
