Parade Day – maxi + scarf, TJ Maxx /// sandals, thrifted Saltwaters /// jean jacket, high school vintage (which was why I was so excited to get an upgrade from my recent StitchFix!) /// sunglasses, Kate Spade /// diaper bag purse, c/o Lily Jade /// bracelets, Kate + Linny
Could this be my favorite outfit of the summer? Perhaps! I wore it to the Lakefair Parade – an annual hoorah in our little city – and there is just something so perfect about maxis in the summer. We snacked on subs as the sun set and then my ever faithful mama snuck me around the corner for a few outfit photos :) Thanks, Ma!
Parades are Dominic’s nemesis so I usually give him a waiver on the outing. The kid’s Mimi and Aunt Kiki are always in on the adventure though. Yes, yes – they’re awesome and my best friends. Well, Dominic is awesome too – just not when it comes to parades. He can’t be awesome at everything now can he? Kind of like I’m not awesome at yard work. To each his own :)
Jemma loved the princesses and marching bands and Max could see the horses from a mile away. Smiling, happy kids equals a successful event in my book so parades will continue to be a summer tradition for us all.
Now, the BIG NEWS! Lily Jade is giving away a diaper bag via my review over on Baby Gizmo – don’t miss it! The Elizabeth in Camel is lovely, amazing, functional — basically, perfect.
