Today was the first time Grace stood outside on solid ground. It might seem trivial, but this was another milestone for mini Peterson. She’s had plenty of experience walking indoors on carpet and hardwood, but we had never braved the outdoors, until today. Needless to say she wasn’t initially the biggest fan. There was something about the cold, not so forgiving brick that just didn’t do it for her, and I can’t say that I blame her. However, being the resilient little baby that she is (I think she must have gained this characteristic from her dad) she braved the tough outdoors for a short time with her mama, and we had some fun!
Okay, so changing gears slightly, this outfit is a very typical kind of day-look for me, (maybe minus the heels). I love grey on grey, and grey on black. What I love about this simple colour combination is that with the addition of one or two accessories you can transform a daytime outfit into an evening outfit easily and without much hassle, which as a mother, or anyone on a busy schedule, can be a real blessing.
I’m also currently obsessed with hats, and this one that I’m wearing is one that I’ve reached for again and again in recent weeks. A hat can sophisticate any outfit and make even the mundane ensemble look interesting. I also love how a hat can disguise a bad hair day too… as long as you don’t have to take it off!
So let’s talk a bit about Gracie’s outfit. We were lucky enough to be gifted this absolutely adorable baby Burberry jacket… and what is cuter than a mini quilted Burberry jacket, really? Not much. And if I do say so myself, she pulls the look off perfectly with her matching leggings and baby Uggs. I’m so glad that the weather picked up a little so that we could break out this jacket. And even better, she’s representing a home country brand! (Note: I saved the best picture til last!)
