what we wore : a day at the park

a day in the park a day in the park a day in the park

It finally got warm and sunny here after what seemed like months of dreary gray and rain. Meredith needed a little personal attention from mommy, so we had a girls’ day with a friend of mine. A little shopping, visiting my brother, and then walking around one of the nice big parks in town. Very fun.

And hey, this is my first attempt at some outfit photos! Over the past year I’ve developed a pretty strong sense of my personal style so I thought it’d be fun to share. Unfortunately we were out and about in the middle of the day so the lighting here is pretty harsh, but you get the idea right?

Meredith’s wardrobe is almost all hand-me-downs from friends, and she wears pink or purple 90% of the time, so this outfit is a rare departure. (And actually she was wearing a Little Mermaid t-shirt earlier in the day before she spilled mustard on it at lunch.) I try to let her choose her own clothes, so you’ll probably see some interesting combinations in the future. :)

Oh! P.S. My goal is to transition to clothes produced ethically, but I’m on a tight budget so in all honestly I hardly ever go shopping. Right now it’s better for me to wear what I have. But if you have a clothing company to recommend, I’d love that!

On me:
shirt: Gap (similar)
cardigan: Ross
jeans: Old Navy
sunglasses: Target (super cheap right now)
bracelet: Noonday Collection
sandals: Target
bag: Madewell

On Meredith:
shirt: Baby Gap
skirt: J Khaki
shoes: Crocs (similar)

    From Nora:

    So adorable! Little kids that dress themselves are my most favorite; usually my girls will go for some sort of punk rock look OR wear all the same color. M is luck at the end of this coming summer if she still loves pink & purple as that’s my little bonus child’s favorite two colors, so all her clothes for this summer will be pink and purple :)

    Also: you are gorgeous!
