Dark Flowers and Light Umbrellas.

 Dark Flowers for Mommy
...and Light Umbrellas for my Mini Me.

That is how our outfits today are consisting of and that is how this blog post title came along. Shame on me for taking more than half of the Summer to finally wear this Dark Blue Flower OTS Midi Dress, which I purchased at Old Navy about 2 months ago. But I have been wearing my capsule clothes mostly this Summer, so you understand. The colors of the flowers are in mustard, teal, orange, plum and red so I can totally see this dress translating into Fall. Actually since these Wedges are sort of a bootie too, you can keep on the same shoes, except add a layer like a long cardigan and I can smoothly transition into cooler September days. Vivian's dress AND sandals are also from Old Navy. The dress is in the softest Baby Pink with Light Blue Umbrellas on the pattern which look like drawn doodles - such a fun print. I love that it is a Swing Style Dress but it is completely buttoned-down in the front as a shirtdress (wish it came in my size too). Her Adorable Mustard+Camel Bow Sandals are from this Summer as opposed to her dress which I purchased last Summer and packed it for our vacation last year in July. Her sandals will transition into early to mid Fall nicely too and I can see them working with some dark tights, too. Hope you like our outfits today and I wish you all a Great August. I cannot believe how fast July flew by!

Baby Pink Swing Dress w/ Baby Blue Umbrellas: Old Navy.

For this photo I tried one of the cartoon settings on my camera. I love how it came out!
Vivian took a couple of my photos (with a pretty heavy DSLR camera - I was scared the entire time she was going to drop it). This is one of the photos she took, a little crooked but came out great. Here she was telling me how to pose. This is one of Vivian's 3 signature poses lol. I love how cute she is!

  1. That little Vivian of yours is such a spitfire! I love her posing and now she's a photographer too - how cute is she?!!!! You both look lovely!

  2. Midi dresses are so fun to wear! It's nice to mix it up and try something new :) Your mini is absolutely adorable!

  3. I can just see little Miss Vivian coaching you on how to "pose". Y'all are quite the team. I'd have been nervous too, but maybe she'll end up being a photographer because her sweet mommy let her use the camera. ❤️

  4. I love your dress and she's so adorable :)

  5. You two are so cute!!
    I always try to wear my clothes as soon as I buy them, but I've been guilty lately of not doing that...

  6. You guys look adorable like always! Loving the floral oft dress and I am sure it will be a repeat come fall.

  13. Vivian is too cute and she took a great pic! I have been loving my wedges. Mine are from DSW and I ended up ordering them in black too and I am waiting for them to get here. I bet the ones from Target are great too. They look exactly the same! Beautifully Candid

  14. Your dress has a really nice print! Thanks for joining the Top of the World Style party.

  15. Such a pretty dress! Vivian did a great job with the photos. My daughter loves to take photos too - it won't be long before she's taking all my blog pics!
