who'll stop the rain?

Can you beleive this outfit was inspired from an inspiration image I saved back in October 2010! 
From this Chictopia Post:
 I had bought this dress when I was pregnant for my son... It still works somehow... I have a photo in this when I am 8 months pregnant!

 I grabbed this super cool jacket off of my Kika Paprika sample rack even though it is 2 sizes too big...
It is so soft and comfy. I just might order it in my size if I make enough sales this month. ;)

Finally remembered to take a photo of the back of these boots. They are so cool aren't they. I get compliments every time I wear them....

Jacket - Kika Paprika 'Kathy'

Went to preschool with our 60 valentine cards in tow! 30 for each kid. We do the same for tomorrow's outdoor class so that means we had to prep 120 valentine cards!!! I have enforced my son to do majority of his own. He wrote his name on a lot of them and helped assemble at least. The class was jam packed and quite exhausting but the kids made the cutest valentine art projects and had fun collecting their goodie bags...

Here is a photo with my little man before school:

I finally got around to editing the photos from Saturday afternoon of my daughter openning her gifts:

Princess with her gifts:

I cherish hand made gifts:
The green infinity scarf is hand knit my by my friend and these pretty hair barette's are made by another talented friend:

And check out this beyond words adorable pant and beret set my other friend sew for my daughter:
It even has studs on the hat and zipper and chain details on the 'skinny' pants:

So the next day she wore the set and posed for me:


  1. oh my gosh!! your daughter is absolutely precious! look at those poses!

  2. Great look for bloggers do it better. Sweetest children ever!
