I love picking out a pretty dress for the girls to wear on special occasions. It makes me happy and I think they look darling, plus I plan on storing them so they will each have a box of their own special dresses to keep as heirlooms.
This year for Lark's birthday I had the three options above to choose from, so I had her try them on one afternoon for a little instagram fashion show. They were all cute, but the clear winner, and my favorite as well, was option number one:
I love this dress! The colors and little details are just perfect for a birthday girl. I bought a huge gold number one balloon for her party, envisioning her wearing the dress while holding it for a fun birthday photo (picture this background, the planets aligned, angels singing...). The weather, however, didn't get the memo and turned out to be quite windy. This was the best shot I could get, ha! She was frantically signing 'All done!' and trying to protect herself as the balloon bounced off her head. I quickly realized it was not going to happen and abandoned the idea. Thankfully, my mother was helping me and had a hold of the balloon, otherwise it would have blown away.
We'll try again next year with another dress and a number two.
