Shop: Summer Dresses

by Cat on June 30, 2009

by Designing Mom Kira

It’s no secret that I am a wee bit obsessed with buying summer dresses for my 17 month old. Every time I come home with a new purchase for Masha, my husband gives me a bit of a smirk knowing that it is likely a new summer dress. I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect pretty, practical dresses (it’s become a bit of a hobby) and started a folder on my desktop of candidates for the few summer dress slots that are left in her closet. I think I can be held responsible for the words “cute” and dress to the little one’s vocabulary. The arrival of a Mini Boden catalog requires serious self-restraint as I could truly order one of each. They really do a perfect job of combing well-designed outfits, fabrics, and practicality, and they are having a sale of up to 50% off on their website through July 2, 2009.

Here are some of the dresses on my wish list:
1. JCrew Gauzy Polka Dot Dress 2. Mini Boden Pretty Hotchpotch Dress 3. Gap Braided Flower Dress 4. Mini Boden Baby Day Dress


5. Misha Lulu Floral Print Jumper 6. JCrew Linen Stripe Tuxedo Dress 7. JCrew Cotton Organdy Dress 8. MiniBoden Ribbon Dress

Friday Foto: Super Hero!

by Cat on June 26, 2009

It’s Friday so I’m wrapping up this week with more fun photos. These are from Designing Mom Erika and her super hero worthy son’s awesome photo session by Jessica Davis Photography.
I laughed so hard hearing about her son E’s natural knack (directing shots, requesting water and
breaks ) at photo shoots. I think a star is born!

Happy weekend everyone. And keep sending me photos…we love ’em!

Happy Bloggin’ Birthday!

by Cat on June 25, 2009

I have to admit…the day after my baby was born I mourned that he was one day older. I shudder to think of the day he will turn the big “one!”

Designing Mom Jackie had a great idea to post our LO’s Birthdays up on the blog. Send in a pic of your little one on their birthday and let’s all celebrate (or in my case commiserate) together!

Jackie: “Our dear, chubby, silly, and lovely little Simon turned one on June 17.
We celebrated in L.A. last weekend (cake and all!) with friends and family.”
