I know I know I know we are no where near close enough to Fall for me to even mention it but I´m still going to. Because I found this pretty dress for my big girl and I wanted to share. Every summer when the nights start to get darker and I can count weeks or days to the day (pre)school starts again I start to imagine what the “fall look” will be like. In August the girls often still wear summer clothes to school but the colder fall days always come so suddenly it´s good to be prepared. As a child I used to plan my first day of school outfit weeks before the occasion and my mind still works that way. I´m ahead even though I´m present and enjoying the moment. This fall I see my girls having grown up a lot. Cotton Candy is starting school ( next week!) and I have to admit that even though the passing time always does take me by surprise I know she has grown so much in the past summer and she is more than ready to start that journey. We already chose her first day of school outfit ( a blue Liberty print top from Jacadi with a cotton cardigan and jeans or white shorts if it´s warm and white sneakers). But this one she chose is for the cooler weather and I can imagine her in this dress, knee high socks or tights, the ankle booties we bought and a slouchy beanie on her long hair.
Growing up also means her style has changed a little. She no longer wants everything in pink and I also respect her own sense of style more. She is ready to make some more decision. Bubble Gum will still be happy in her occasional pale pink ensembles I´m sure but this fall we will see a lot of knitted dresses with ribbed tights and ankle booties or navy Hunter boots depending on the weather. I´m thinking grey, navy and creamy white will be our colours. Perhaps with a bright red accessory or shoe thrown in the mix somewhere.
I found a dress for Bubble Gum too that I absolutely love love love and tomorrow you will see that one and some other fall outfit I have put together.
