Katie at For Lauren &+ Lauren is hosting a Baby Mama link-up today. Say what? An invitation to parade my baby’s squishy face across the Internet? Best link-up ever. Besides, I haven’t shown you my baby’s squishy face in almost two months and I’m SURE you are going through withdrawal. This concerns Kenley’s 3.5 month self. See?
Anyway, the link-up is for cute kids in cute clothing, so I’ve rounded up some of my favorites from the past month or so that show off Kenley’s style essentials. ;)
Baby girl style essential #1: The Grin. A small redhead once said “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.” This small baldhead agrees.
Baby girl style essential #2: Clothing That Professes Your Undying Love for Your Mother. A quick survey tells me that my own wardrobe is severely lacking in this category. Must work on that.
Baby girl style essential #3: The Headband. Annie may have said you’re never fully dressed without a smile, but around here you’re never fully dressed without a headband. Unless your name is Erin, in which case a headband would only draw attention to the fact that you haven’t brushed or washed your hair in two days. (Seriously, I DO have time to do these things…it’s just, why?)
Baby girl style essential #4: The Giant Man-Eating Dress. You get bonus points if it coordinates with mom and dad’s outfits. You also get bonus points if it is virtually impossible for mom and dad to hold onto you properly because of said giant man-eating skirt.
Baby fashion style essential #5: The Thumb. It pairs perfectly with pink and penguins and polka dots. You know what they say about alliterative outfits. (??)
Baby girl style essential #6: The Giant Man-Eating Hood…With Ears. Ears make everything better. Just ask van Gogh. Oh wait.
Baby girl style essential #7: Silly Hats. If the straps don’t stay under your chin because you have enough chins and cheeks for three babies, don’t sweat it. A cute smirk solves the problem.
Baby girl style essential #8: Giant Man-Eating Sunglasses. (I’m sensing a carnivorous trend here.) Try not to look too miserable when wearing them. But I might be miserable, too, if my aunt and uncle put me in these ridiculous sunglasses and then laughed at me while they took my picture.
Baby girl style essential #9: Coordinating Friend. Smooches optional.
Baby girl style essential #10: ??? I just like this picture. And needed a number 10. ;)
Katie invited us mamas to share style details, too, but truthfully I’m putting the robe in wardrobe these days and there must be some sort of occasion if I’ve changed into a shirt that isn’t accessorized with three day-old drool. Plus, I tried on a pair of shorts the other day and Rick informed me that they were mom shorts. He suggested I rectify the situation by instead purchasing a skort. A skort, people. If you see me out and about and I’m sporting a fanny pack WITH my skort, please still be my friend.
Happy Friday! :)
P.S. Spoonflower is giving away free 8”x8” swatches of silky faille until noon today! There are literally thousands of designs and colors to choose from, and the size is perfect for a gallery wall addition. :)
