One of my favorite things to wear is a maxi dress. They are versatile, come in all sorts of styles and colors and they compliment any body. The one I wore for our baby shower was just so mama to be haute. When Target launched their Lilly Pulitzer line, I was excited to grab a cute and bright maxi dress however by the time I trekked it the store all 30 something plus week pregnant and Little Z at my side, I missed everything in my size and my post pregnancy size. I walked around the store, checked the racks near the fitting room and just about every aisle… NOTHING!
Little Z however hit the toddler style jackpot. She scored 3 pieces from the Lilly collection. A jumpsuit (I just knew we would be doing the whole mommy and me jumpsuit thing) a cute shirt and this beautiful maxi dress.
I love it so much I almost put it in our keepsake box never to be worn but I hung it in Zoe’s closet instead just in case the perfect day to wear it came about. What’s funny is on the day little miss Sugar Plum wore this dress, she picked it out herself. She loves to play dress up and loves to wear dresses out. Dresses are her preference for around the house, to the park, morning out program and play dates. I think I created a monster and I love it. Not to mention her grandmothers, aunts and godmothers are all into style and pretty things!
My little fashionista was all about this maxi dress and showing a little bit of personality too. She cracks me up. In the picture above she is telling me she is 9 years old. I may not have scored a Lilly but she did and hopefully she can wear it next summer too. She is growing fast so I will style it this fall just in case it is too small for next year. Bright colors in the fall are totally ‘FLY GIRL’
Instagram loves this little cutie. Follow us for more #Zoelicious style and fun. And a little bit of me too. LOL!
