Summer Swim

I am totally in love with the swimsuits that have dropped this summer from some of my favorite small shops. As I have mentioned before, Texas summer is a HOT summer. Swimming, or at least getting hosed down, is mandatory. You might as well make sure your kiddos are the flyest kids at the pool, am I right?!

6. Amae- {012} Oxblood/Orange – I’m not usually a big fan of 2-piece swim suits for little girls. I do not agree with sexualizing any- and everything a girl puts on or does but I still lean more to the one-piece swimsuit for some reason that I can’t quite peg. (If I figure it out, I’ll get back to you on that). However, this color combo?! It’s too good to pass up. I would also like this swimsuit in my size.

Panda-monium!!

As a child, I always thought it was so strange that my mom’s favorite color was black. “It’s not even a real color.” I would think. Fast forward to present day and my favorite color is black. What’s the saying? Something about an apple..and a tree? A black and white tree…

Anyways, when I had my daughter, Makenzie Alice, my black obsession transferred into something I could share with my bouncing baby: a panda. I mean, what other option did I have, right?! I needed something cuddly and cute…black and white…I could’ve picked a zebra but WHY when there is something a cute as a panda in the world?? I digress.

Here are some amazing little finds for the panda lover in us all. The little girl hugging panda in the drawing below? That’s my baby girl. It’s hanging in the nursery…in a neon frame…One does want a hint of color (and when I say “hint”, I clearly mean “neon yellow”).
