DRESS LOVE

when i first found out i was having a little girl, i went wild for dresses. like any reasonable pregnant lady. i feel in love with gwen stefani's kids line "harajunku lovers" back before she did her discounted target line. i stocked up on a couple pieces that caught my eye but mainly used the hand me downs from my older sister's daughter. as i said before, sometimes i find it hard to let go of some of luna's clothes. i just always want to remember these years. and over time i have donated and gifted all of luna's clothes, specially with our recent move two weeks ago.
one thing i really have found a good investment is dresses. not all, but some have lasted over a year! while the kids grow out shoes within a couple months dresses have been worn long until they become tunics. and even for us ladies, i believe we all need a good maxi dress. maxi dresses & skirts (aka long dresses) are great during pregnancy and after when you want to wear something comfy. they're great for running errands, going to the beach or even dressing up with high heels. i love getting good use out of clothing. so many trendy  things seem like a good buy while you're in a shopping daze but don't work out in the long run. i hope if you have a little girl you find this helpful and keep beloved dresses a little longer! xo.

That's so smart. I totally agree and have done the same thing for mine.....actually, Bel has quite a few maxi dresses that are size 6x shirts that Av and V wear now.

i agree. dresses are awesome and i too hold onto Lily's because most of them do go from dresses to tunics, to shirts. most of them last over a year. i am however happy that Lily is wearing something other than dresses these days.

I love this! I do the same thing with many of Finley's dresses, but I love seeing the visual of the pictures side by side.

And, ohhh, she was so tiny! Love the little baby pictures!

Don't you love it when you can get lots of wear out of special pieces?! That always makes me smile.
Also, it's totally a trip to see your girl grow up right before our eyes here in this post!
