Hi there! I'm Zoe, a precious 11 month old baby girl who loves to play with blocks, has very serious conversations with my puppy Lola and crawls really really fast to anything that appears dangerous. I also happen to be excellent at flirting with strangers and eating a LOT. What can I say, some skills you were just born with. Mama said I was too young for my own fashion blog (RUDE!) so I'm taking over hers to discuss a very important topic for babies and adults alike!
How to Rock Your Spring Style
Spring is upon us! Which on the East Coast apparently means snow, but for everywhere else it means beautiful sunny weather. That means it's time to say "Bye Bye" (or as I like to say "Ba Ba") to sweaters and boots and "Hello!" to bright colors and sun dresses. That's right! Sun dresses! Which brings me to my first point.
1) Working what your mama gave you (literally... she gives me all my clothes).
Nothing attracts people more to you than confidence. I for one, have never learned what this self conscious business is, but I want none of it. What's all this talk about people not liking their thighs? Since when is this a trait women don't like? I mean, my thighs are probably one of my best assets. All day long people tell me how gorgeous and amazing my chunky thighs are. So to me, if you got it... FLAUNT it ladies. And if you are a baby like me the more chub the better. That's the way to the hearts of millions. A wrist roll or two won't hurt either. Just saying...
2) White is the new black.
Spring is one of the best seasons out here in California. Followed by Summer, Fall, and Winter. Not only is my birthday in Spring, but people start reintroducing color and bright prints back into their lives. As much as I love color, I'm also quite a fan of white. Both these looks feature white, which really is a great way to get grass stains. And speaking of stains, I know this is a dangerous choice since I've been known to practice blowing raspberries with pureed carrots in my mouth. But, as long as you wear a bib at dinner (it's the classy choice) white is seriously a refreshing change from the winter hues.
*** Upon later viewing Mama noticed I actually DO have bananas on my top. This is not recommended and she will try and be more aware of random stains next time. She can't make any promises though. So if a little food stain bothers you, you probably shouldn't have kids.
3) "Who wears short shorts!?"
Now is the time to take risks. Walk on the wild side. Live a little. YOLO. If not now, when? I say work those shorts and work them right. Wearing a fun print like this nautical stripe can add just the right amount of fun to your outfit. By picking one statement item you aren't going to end up with an overwhelming look. I chose a polka dot bow headband to coordinate with my shorts. I didn't want to have too much going on so I chose to go barefoot. I'm not walking anyway, so it seemed like the more sophisticated approach. I learned that tip from my mama. She has taught me several fashion tips that I write down on my IPad before bed. I find I sleep better if I make a list first. Anyway, back to shorts. These happen to show off all my favorite assets. Not only are they on trend but I can wear them all spring and summer long. I am sure these will bring me lots of compliments. And who doesn't love a good confidence booster? Examples of compliments that always know how to make a lady smile include:
"I love your jumper! Look at those adorable thighs!"
"Stripes AND polka dots! You are quite the fashionable baby!" Yes lady at the Gap. I am. Thank you for noticing.
"Wow! You are 11 months? You don't look a day over 9 months! Are you using eye cream?"
Well.. the last one has never been said to me, but a baby can dream! In the comments on the blog Mom and I would love to hear about something you are looking forward to wearing this spring. Once I'm a little taller I have the CUTEST striped dress from Zara just calling my name! Mom has a maxi dress that she plans on wearing wine tasting all spring and summer and she won't stop talking about it. I mean, I get it. It's easy and fashionable. Who doesn't love that?
Thanks for letting me share my deepest fashion thoughts with you. Hope to do it again soon! Hint Hint Mama! If you let me continue to write blog posts for you it's kinda like you are getting the day off!
