HAPPY NEW YEAR! Yeah I know I’ve missed that boat a little but in my defense it has been a crazy hospital trip kind of start to the year. All good now and back to blogging. I was going to start this post off with “you know those days when you wake up feeling a little like Catherine Zita Jones from Zorro and Frida Kahlo combined?” and then I saw everyone joking around about the current generation not knowing who Paul McCartney was and thought better of it. To be fair I was taking visual cues from my caterpillar brows so like Frida said “there is nothing worth more than laughter”, so let’s make light and push on.
Presenting : kidlet’s favorite dress. It’s not often a one year old boy has a comment on your wardrobe but this Cocolatte dress is for certain my son’s favorite. The kind I bet he’ll remember when he’s older, like my memories of seeing mum put lipstick on and the 80’s prints on our bed sheets that looked like an infinite number of animals and shapes.
To me it’s a light weight maxi I can comfortably throw on and feel pretty in, while we have this heavy sticky heat. To him its an interesting series of colored shapes in tickly embroidered thread he can trace his fingers around and just be all round fascinated with. Win win situation if I ever saw one. So much so that my 2 cocolatte maxi’s are my current summer faves/obsessions. It doesn’t hurt that I am constantly complimented despite the little effort it takes to fling a dress over my head to achieve this look.
