Grandma & Me: My Little Valentine

My granddaughter Alethea and I are so excited to share our Valentine outfits with you.  We decided to celebrate the holiday by being "Pretty in Pink!"



Alethea is wearing a cute pinky peach embroidered dress with white tights and shoes.  I'm wearing a new sweater from CJBanks (sold out in pink, only available in mint), with a white top, white jeans, and grey booties.  In last month's "Grandma & Me" post I shared the same exact sweater in white.  If you missed it, you can see it HERE!


I love how the eyelet embroidery in on both the top and hem of her dress.


Her dress has cute pink buttons down the top.


I just adore her white shoes.  Aren't those bows the cutest?


I don't usually like to wear white in winter because we have so much snow and slush here in Wisconsin, but it's been a very low snowfall year for us.  I also think this pink sweater looks best with white jeans, and it's the perfect Valentine's look for a cold climate.



I didn't wear a necklace because my top has pearls in it, but I did wear blush beaded bracelets with a pink pearl ring, and pearl earrings. 



My grey booties are by Blowfish (old).


Alethea is 19 months old now.  Last month I told you she was 17 months old and my daughter corrected me and said she was a month older.  My little baby with be two years old in just a few months!  It seems like it was just yesterday that she was born.


Ashley sent me the sweetest picture yesterday,  but it broke my heart and almost made me cry.  The only person Ashley ever really talks on the phone with is me (she texts everyone else),  so Alethea has made the connection that phone means "Mamy".  When Ashley was done with her conversation with me, Alethea picked up her toy phone and kept saying "Mamy" over and over again.  It was so sweet!


I can't wait to see this beautiful blue eyed angel again!  Only two more weeks and I will go down and spend a week with this precious one.  We have so many fun activities planned.


Have A Great Day!  Amy

  1. As usual, you two are adorable.
    I know that feeling about white jeans. Many times if it's slushy, that's when I'll wear my tall or OTK boots with them just so they don't get so dirty!!

  2. We must have gotten the snow you usually get, because I feel like it's been white on the ground here since Thanksgiving weekend (most of it melted this weekend though!)

    I am sure you'll have a wonderful time when you visit!

    1. Yes, you did! My kids live in Illinois and they have been hammered this year with snow. We haven’t gotten much this year. But there’s plenty of winter left in Wisconsin!

  7. Such cute photos in your matching pink! It's so sweet you can treasure these moments! I take so many photos of my mum and my boys, they love their grandmother so much. It's wonderful being able to have them spend so much time with her, she is over every week but counts down to the visits too, haha!

    Thank you so much for joining the #weekdayWearLinkUp :)

    Hope that you are having a great week so far :) We have had a break with the heat and humidity and had some rain which has been a wonderful relief!
