Sophia’s Spring Wardrobe List: Number One

After the last North Carolina snowfall, the air has been crisp in the morning and warmer during the day. Is Spring among us? In honor of our excitement, I’ve compiled a list of looks for the start of Sophia’s spring wardrobe and I’m sharing them with you! There will be a “Number Two” to this post so stay tuned for more styles I’m loving!

LOOK NUMBER ONE: Dark Florals & Silver Boots

SIMILAR DRESS // SOCKS // Similar SHOES

I’ve highlighted the shoes I linked before because I’m obsessed with them and believe every mini needs a pair!

Look Number Two: Black on Black

// BEANIE (less expensive) $4 (Also obsessed with THIS ONE) // DRESS (under $15) // SHOES (50% OFF) OR (similar, less expensive versions HERE & HERE) // KNEE HIGH SOCKS (Also HERE & HERE)

This look is fabulous, and thankfully Sophia already has 2 out of the 4 items from this look so I’m not spending a ton of money on it. Black is so chic- yes, even on toddlers!

LOOK NUMBER THREE: Cool, Casual and Collected

DENIM TOP (ALSO HERE & HERE) // LEGGINGS (These are a MUST-HAVE! On sale for $4!!!) // CONVERSE // SHADES (Also loving THESE & THESE)

This look is so effortless and cool. Everyone needs a pair of classic chucks- and I’m so excited for Sophia to get these! They’ll go with so many outfits.

The next part of this post are dresses that I’m currently OBSESSED with. You’ll notice a light pink trend- but I can’t help it. Not only is the color sort of a universal “girly” color, but it’s also the perfect color for Spring!

DRESS NUMBER ONE

Nordstrom Rack | UNDER $20 // SHOP IT HERE //

DRESS NUMBER TWO:

NORDSTROM RACK | UNDER $25 // SHOP THE DRESSES HERE //

This adorable peplum floral dress comes in both Ivory and Mustard and I’m going nuts waiting on them to get here! They’re the cutest little dresses for the season! And how stinkin’ cute are those ruffled sleeves and the key hole back detailing?!

DRESS NUMBER THREE

H&M // UNDER $10 // SHOP IT HERE

I ordered this dress with full intent on it being Sophia’s Easter Dress- but I’m not sure I’m going to be able to wait that long to put her in it.

DRESS NUMBER FOUR

H&M // SHOP IT HERE

These sequins and ruffles are everything! I’ve been searching and searching for the perfect dress for her third birthday party and am so glad I found this one. Gold and pink are perfect together and this dress screams adorable!

There will be an add-on to this post- these looks are just the start of a fabulous spring wardrobe!

The Cutest Kids Rain Boots, and Where to Find Them

I have recently gotten SO MUCH FEEDBACK on these adorable rain boots that I found for Sophia so it would be wrong of me not to share them with the world!

// PINK // BLACK + GOLD BOW // GOLD // BLACK + PINK BOW //

The really cool thing about all of Mini Melissa’s shoes is they’re infused with delicious scents! For real y’all, The pink smells like bubble gum!

I realize that $60 is a lot to pay for rain boots, especially with toddlers little feet growing rapidly, but if you go up one size they can wear them longer! I’ve also linked some really cute alternatives that I’m obsessed with below!

GIRLS SIZES // UNDER $25 // BLUE & PINK (I’d call it more of a burgundy pink)

GIRLS SIZES // ON SALE UNDER $35 // FIND THEM HERE: HATLEY PINK/NAVY GINGHAM RAINBOOTS //

These CAT & JACK RAINBOOTS are pretty much exact dupes for the Hunter Brand Rainboots below, (the Hunter Boots have a glossy finish and the cat & jack boots are more of a matte finish) But I’ll attach both links below!

HUNTER BOOTS // CAT & JACK BOOTS (ON SALE UNDER $15!)

Spring and Summer Showers require a good pair of cute rain boots, so I hope this list helps you pick the best pair!

Which are your favorites?

Sophia’s Big Girl Room Makeover

77E6AAB5-F915-42A5-8A8B-EC0FDE6C3F91SHOP: COMFORTER SET // METALLIC HEARTS SHEETS // BED FRAME (similar style) // GEL/MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS (sooooo comfortable!) // MATTRESS PROTECTOR // SHELVING UNIT // STORAGE BINS (similar style)

We recently took a trip home to Florida for the Holidays to be with family. Up until then, Sophia had been sleeping in her large crib. Something inside of me couldn’t accept the fact that my little baby girl finally needed a big girl bed..

She ended up sleeping on a twin size bed at my Meems’s house (her vintage metal bed was what inspired me for Sophia’s bed frame) on the last night that we were there and she slept like a baby with no mishaps! (no falling out of the bed, etc!)

Jeff then convinced me that it was time to “cut the cord” and we needed to update her room.

The next few days were spent carefully buying pieces and mentally picturing what I wanted her room to look like and going off of that image in my head. This was the end result and were in love!

This comforter is even more gorgeous and elegant in person- just as we wanted! I believe your comforter set truly sets the vibe in your room. It’s also extremely soft and cozy! They have them in multiple different sizes and colors as well- there’s even a navy blue one that would go perfectly in a little boys room!

// SHOP THE BEDDING SET //

 

// SHOP THE SHEETS // (They’re on sale right now which is an added bonus!)

These sheets are so cute and match the Gold/Pink princess theme we were going for perfectly!

 // FIRST SIGN // SECOND SIGN // THIRD SIGN //

I actually purchased these signs a while ago so I’ve linked some really pretty alternatives that would go perfectly in a room like this!

Mamas that haven’t made the switch to the big girl room yet: I won’t lie to you, watching Jeff take apart her crib & put away her changing table killed me screw by screw, piece by piece.. Not even kidding! But then it was easy for me to get excited when I saw how happy Sophia was when she saw her big girl room and her very own big girl bed.

I’ve linked all of the products for you & you’ll find them right underneath the pictures above!

Have you made the switch yet? Let me know in the comments,
I’d love to hear what theme you went with!

SNOW DAY IN NORTH CAROLINA

If you’re on the east coast like we are- you already know we got hit with some serious cold weather last week! East coast states all the way down to Florida felt the bitter cold arctic temps and even saw some snow! It actually snowed in my hometown- Tallahassee, Florida for the first time in almost 30 years!

When Sophia was born we lived in Upstate New York at Fort Drum (talk about FREEZING cold, y’all. This Florida gal couldn’t hang) and we moved back to Florida for a year while Jeff was on rotation in Korea. She was only a year old so she didn’t remember ever seeing snow. Needless to say, seeing her face when she felt that cold fluff for the *sort of* first time was magical for Jeff and I!

I did my best to capture the cuteness for y’all- but it was short lived because she was EVERYWHERE! For those who are interested: The links to her outfit are posted below!
