Mother Daughter Style: Pinch Protection from Head-to-Toe...

With that said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Klair and I are feeling festive today in our complimentary green and gold attire. 
I'm not a huge fan of the traditional dark, grass green color usually associated with the holiday, so I dressed us in some mintier and more aqua hues with gold accents for good measure. 

Naturally, Klair steals the show in her chevron dress and gold headband--that I made! I'm actually really proud of that. I think it turned out really well for a first attempt.  
Oh, and I can't forget to mention her jelly shoes. I saw them, and at once I knew I had to purchase them. ...I guess I'm a sucker for the throwbacks from my own childhood. Hers are cooler than mine ever were though because they actually smell like jelly. The things they think of. 
We had fun during our little mommy and me photoshoot. The only way I could keep her from trying to wriggle out of my arms was to jump up and down a few times 
and briefly pause, so Sam could snap a picture.

This picture is the result of one of those moments, haha! 
This post would not be complete without mentioning our "pinch protection" nails. It was much harder to paint her nails than I anticipated, and resulted in a crying tantrum that left her sulking for hours afterward. In fact, every time she looks at her nails I think she's reminded of how mad it made her and she still gives me the cold shoulder from time to time.
I did these the day before, hers are already so chipped. 
Can you tell she's an active little baby? 
Oh, how I love her. 
I hope you all have a lovely holiday!

Klair's Outfit: 
Dress | Headband (homemade) | Sweater | Tights | Jelly Shoes | Nail Polish

  5. You guys are both so cute!! And painting nails on little ones can be a risky endeavor--sometimes they like it and are all for it, other times they want none of it!

    1. Risky indeed! She was ok for the first hand, but the second... Well, I ended up with nail polish all over my hands from her squirming tantrum. Haha :)
