I don’t know if I want to make this a ‘once-in-awhile’ feature, but just this one time at least I couldn’t resist snapping a few shots of my daughter Isabelle to share on the blog. It’s partly an ‘little girls’ outfit look, but mostly because, like all mothers, I happen to think my daughter is the cutest thing out there, and if I can’t resist her, how can anyone else?  (≧ ω ≦) ~ ♡

Plus, we’re both in stripes, so you know…  : P

I wanted to stick with a strictly casual vintage vibe for this outfit. It’s hard to resist the temptation to dress an outfit up ~ you know, add heels or a strand of pearls, but I felt like this was a good opportunity for a more comfortable, casual maternity look.

Let’s face it, there are some days where the thought of nylons, heels or belts is just beyond an expecting mother and you just want to be able to be comfortable as well as presentable! Hence my nautical themed 1950’s-ish look.

The jersey tunic is the star of this style, and combined with stretch denim capris has the ‘all day’ comfort factor that makes this outfit so wearable. Just because it’s simple and cozy doesn’t mean it can’t have a vintage flair though; I love how the navy and white stripes add interest and of course, the peter pan collar wins at all the things. I adore peter pan collars!

Add some cute boater-style canvas flats and an adorable daughter, and you are good to go…  ꒰。• ◡ –。꒱

Don’t have an adorable daughter? Borrow someone else’s for the day ~ I’m sure they’d love the free babysitting, and you’ll look fabulous! {Haha, jokes you know!}
