19: Stripes and Shields.

I wasn't sure at first if these two pieces worked together or not. But after putting them on, the outfit grew on me and as I was editing the photos, I actually started liking this outfit, quite a bit. I am pairing my Navy+Baby Blue Silky, Comfy Track-Style Pants with my Baby Blue or Periwinkle Striped Oxford Shirt. The Print on these Pants looks like little shields, while the shirt has stripes. I added the pops of Bright, almost Neon Yellow via the loafers, Earrings and Bracelet, put my hair in a ponytail and I was done. What do you think?
This little girl is already 20 months old, as of yesterday. How does time fly, for real? She is improving her skills for going up and down the stairs, also. She is always on the move. She keeps us all on our feet. Oh and she loves to sing and chatter.

  7. Isn't it crazy how quickly kids grow! One minute they are babies, then next moving and walking and talking...ahhh, motherhood. I like the pops of color in this outfit. The only thing I would suggest is maybe tucking in the shirt.
