Alethea and I are sharing our winter white knits this month. Winter white is perfect for the icy cold snowy days we have in Wisconsin and Illinois during the month of January.
I am wearing a new "Cozy Popcorn Yarn Cardigan" from CJBanks that I got for Christmas. I love this cardigan so much I bought it in white and blush. I can't even begin to tell you how soft this yarn is! It's all sold out on line in the white and pink colors, but the mint color is still available. You could also check your local stores and see if they have more colors.
Alethea is wearing a white plush hoodie vest with animal ears. I've noticed how much cute little animal ears on top of hoods is really trending in children's clothing.
Alethea also has sparkly gold leggings on with a white long sleeve top with metallic gold hearts.
I didn't have any sparkly gold leggings or white tops with gold hearts on them, to match Alethea (geez, I wonder why? 😀) so I wore my brown skinny jeans and a white top (both old).
Alethea is 17 months old now and has become even more of a delight to hang out with. I had the pleasure of having her over for Christmas for a full week. She was so fun to have around for Christmas. She loves Christmas! We let her play "Santa" and deliver all the presents to the proper recipients. She did such a good job!
She is starting to love me "almost" as much as I love her. She pointed to me and said "Mamy" for the first time! Oh, my heart just melted! What music to one's ear to have your first grandchild call you by name.
She's at the age when you can really start playing with her. We played with all the new toys she got for Christmas. We built towers with blocks, talked on the play "telephone", and ran around the house with her corn popper: her favorite Christmas toy!
She is a bundle of energy! It's harder than ever to take photos with her, but somehow we managed to get a lot of beautiful photographs to be treasured forever.
She is always fascinated with my jewelry; she will closely examining any necklace or bracelet I'm wearing. She quickly figured out on her own how my bracelet opened and closed. She is so smart!
Oh, what a little pumpkin she is! Such a vivacious personality she has. She makes me smile and laugh so much! I am truly blessed.
Finally, for those less interested in the ravings of a proud grandma and more interested in what I'm wearing, here are some detail shots of my outfit. I wanted to show the back of this cardigan so you can see it how long it is. It will be nice to wear with leggings as it covers the back side!
For shoes I wore my brown suede booties (old). I tend to wear these booties more than any other pair in my closet. They are just so comfy and go with almost everything.
For jewelry, I chose gold pieces to match Alethea's gold pants and gold hearts. The necklace is from a fall Stitch Fix box. The bracelet has a tortoise shell top.
I am so looking forward to seeing this precious bundle again! In February, I will go and spend a week at her home in Illinois. Hopefully she'll think it's really cool that grandma is at her house for an extended period of time.
Have A Great Day! Amy
