Vivian's Style, Summer 2017, part 1.

As I mentioned on yesterday's post my sweet girl Vivian had tooth surgery yesterday to get a few fillings. It was a 4-hour process and she was under anesthesia the entire time so it was a tough day for her. She handled it like a champ and I swear I probably cried more than she did. But she did have some fever after and she is in a lot of pain and her mouth is partially swollen. She has only drank a glass of OJ all day (and her penicillin). Please pray she continues to heal and get strong and that she starts to eat again, soon. Anyhow, today's post is all about Vivian in every way that matters, in honor of her turning 4 and a half as well. I haven't really celebrated her half birthdays except for when she turned 6 months but today's date dawned on me so I figured why not give you a sneak peak of some of the outfits Vivian has worn this Summer. 

I snap pictures of her almost daily, not only when we do our Mommy+Me photo-shoots. So I have been meaning to do these kind of posts for a while now so you will get more posts like this, every now and then. You can see a lot of these snaps, photos and quick videos on my Instagram stories so make sure you follow me there if you don't already. As you can tell by the first two outfits above, she looks gorgeous in red. Of course, bright bold red looks fantastic with her long raven locks.

It is fun getting to dress a little girl and some of her outfits she picks and styles completely on her own. I love that you can see her bright-colored, girly style in these pictures. The bright colors she wears match her spunky personality. She loves dresses, skirts, ballet shoes, anything that makes her look like a ballerina or a princess and she loves her accessories: her headbands, bows, necklaces, bracelets, watches and let's not forget her fun adorable little bags. 

She wore this outfit the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend. I picked up this new flag dress for her during Spring at Kohl's. Notice how she picked out to wear her Silver Ballet Flats so they could match the silver Minnie Mousse on her dress and the silver star on her bag. Also her red bag which has star cut-outs matches her red dress with the star bottom and the bag has a red and navy pom pom, so Vivian decided to wear her red, hot pink and navy pom pom headband, too.

On this particular day, Vivian didn't really want pictures. She was too busy playing with her jelly snakes. That is why she is closing her eyes on a few pf the photos. I caught her on the action a few times. This red+white+blue outfit was worn during 4th of July outfit.

Like I said, Vivian loves her accessories. She also loves putting on makeup at times (like she did on this day). This was on 3rd of July and Vivi wore more red, white and blue. You will see a lot more pictures from this day and a bunch we took of the two of us, on a Mommy+Mini Blog post next week. This is by far one of my most favorite outfits of her for the Summer and one of my favorite Mommy+Toddler style posts this year (you will see for yourselves next week).

Vivian wore this on Wednesday July 5th on a day I was at work but my dad was staying with her. She also wore this to the playground that day and later on, came to visit me at work. Isn't her Dori dress with the tulle skirt so beautiful?! She added some pink on top of the green, with her accessories.
