At this time of the year, we are all ready for spring and wearing some color for a change. But unfortunately, if you live in a northern state, warm weather is still a long ways off. So Alethea and I decided to bring a pop of spring with color into our winter outfits! My outfit is a mix of different shades of grey with a pop of coral in the scarf. Alethea is wearing all grey and white with coral pants and a pop of coral in her hat.
My grey jeans I received in my last box from Stitch Fix. Everything else is old or borrowed. The scarf and beautiful grey cardigan I'm wearing belong to Ashley, however, it was a Christmas gift from me. I bought it from Macy's (no longer available).
I absolutely love this cardigan. It's so soft, and the length is perfect to wear with leggings or skinny jeans.
I bought this Baker Boy hat last year at Target. It's my favorite winter hat. I hope this style of hat is trending for a long time. They are so much easier to wear than beanies and they look flattering on everyone. I love how they don't mess up my hair either!
Alethea loves her hat too, and I can see why, isn't it so pretty? I love the colors and the pearls in the bow!
She was so proud to show off her hat in the photos. Her mom kept asking her questions about her hat while taking the pictures, that's why she's touching her head in the picture below. She loved wearing this dress too. The skirt is a tulle material. While I was visiting for the week I kept reading her a book about a little girl who wore a tutu skirt everywhere, and would not take it off. Well, you guessed it, Alethea wanted to wear all her tulle skirts after reading that book!
For footwear I'm wearing black booties and Alethea is wearing black Converse sneakers.
Alethea is 20 months old now and is saying about 100 words. She knows a lot of her alphabet already too. She has those alphabet refrigerator magnets and I was talking to her about the letter "P" and she walked into the kitchen and grabbed the letter "P" off the refrigerator to show me and said "P". She is so smart. I've been calling her my little "Baby Genius" since she's been born.
She seemed to really enjoy having me stay in her house for a week. She was so happy the first day I was there. Even her daddy said he couldn't believe how happy she was. Of course, as the week went on she got use to me being there and the novelty wore off. 😆 But I think she was still excited to see me every morning. She always woke up before me, for she's an early riser and I am not. Whenever I opened the door to my room and stepped out, in the morning, a broad grin would stretch across her face and make my heart melt. One morning I said good morning to her, grabbed my coffee and stepped out of the kitchen because there wasn't enough room at the kitchen table for me. Even though she wasn't finished eating her breakfast she said "Out" to her mother because she wanted out of high chair so she could go into the living room where I was. Ashley then made me come back into the room and Jason vacated his seat to make room for me so Alethea could finish her breakfast. Such a funny girl. I was more than happy to sit across the table from her as I drank my coffee and look into those gorgeous bright blue eyes.
She's a little apprehensive of the snow, but because it was raining on this day the snow was getting icy and it made a loud crunching snow when you walked on it. She thought that was so funny!
I had a wonderful week with my granddaughter. I have so many photos and stories to share of the things we did but I really want to wrap up my South Dakota posts first as I've been dragging them out far too long. I know it will seem silly to share winter photos in spring, but it is what it is! I only do travel posts once a week as they are very time consuming to write, and sometimes I'm in to another season before I am able to finish them.
And now I have some exciting news to share: I am going to have a grandson in June or July! It's going to be interesting doing Grandma & Me Fashion Posts with a little boy, but I've seen lots of other Mommy & Me posts which incorporate boys so I know it's possible. I'm super excited that Ashley and Jason's 2nd baby is a boy. It's always nice to have one of each right away. I actually love little boys clothing and I think they can be so fun to dress. I told my daughter "He will be the most hip dressed little boy out there!" I've already bought a couple of outfits for him. It's so hard to resist baby clothes. They are so cute! No names yet, as Ashley and Jason like to keep that a secret until the baby is born.
Have A Great Day! Amy
