PR&P signature style week


It is the final week of project run and play and the theme was 'signature style.' Over the past year of increasing my sewing skills (I use that word lightly ;) I have learned a little bit more about my style, especially for my kids. I love simple and comfortable with a little flair. I love play clothes as much as any mom, but what I REALLY love are cute little dresses that can be played in and still allow my girls to look like the little divas princesses they are. When I saw the go to shift dress in the huge pattern sale last week I was immediately sold. Luckily the size three only called for a yard so I got to use my VERY FAVORITE FABRIC IN THE WHOLE WORLD right now :) Salt Water by Tula Pink.

(Love this keyhole detail!)

We are a family that loves the ocean. My husband was a beach lifeguard for 5 years while we were dating and he still surfs and fishes constantly as often as he can. Z-baby has already started to ask if she can learn to surf and we just purchased a family kayak (which honestly kinda scares the bejeebes out of me because as much as I love the beach a near drowning incident when I was a teen left me with a healthy fear of the ocean's power.)
 We go to the beach at least once a week year round and my girls are already little beach bums. I love it and I love this fabric. A little ocean, a little whimsy, my heart flutters...

 To finish off the look I made her a simple shell headband. She loves her "treasures" from the beach and I wish you could have seen how pleased she was when I showed it to her! Actually, she loved the whole outfit so much that she CRIED when I took it off of her- Score!


I really love it with or without the belt. It just looks so comfortable without being frumpy and it really lets the fabric shine! I think she inherited our love for free and easy style. The girl is rocking this outfit!

  2. This is so fun! It is the perfect fabric for a wintery beach feel. I am definitely jealous of the fact that you go nearly once a week. I have probably only been as many times as you can count on one hand. The headband is unlike anything I've seen before. And she's the perfect model for such a fun outfit.
