A few weeks back Miss Marnie and I were invited into the beautiful I Love Gorgeous store to choose an outfit for Mother’s Day (you can read the post HERE).
We had a bit of a task on our hands as the rails were jammed with things I could vision Miss M wearing – and the colour themed rails made it a joy to shop too.
But, choose we did. And, I have to say I am pretty pleased with the selection we made.
We went for the super cool Ikat Smoothie Jumpsuit in hot pink – the light fabric, elasticated waist and ankles and button-up front which give it a relaxed feel. We topped it with the Love Sequin Cardigan also in hot pink.
I love the sequin detail on the back and the striped cuffs on the cardi – but I also love that its 100% cotton making it soft and hand washable too. We also picked up a floral headband and some Soludos hot pink espadrilles (both online soon) – that will be great to wear come summertime.
Much more pink than I would normally chose – but the hot pink is just beautiful and the print and sequins give it a modern twist.
Not only was this I Love Gorgeous outfit perfect for the Mother’s Day lunch we had planned at my sisters house – as it was easy to play in, comfortable at the dinner table and even great to nap in too – it was ‘special’ enough for the family Christening we attended in the morning.
One thing I won’t be doing though is keeping this outfit for ‘best’ – I intend for Miss M to get as much wear as possible out of her ‘special’ clothes – otherwise why have them at all?
With that in mind I have styled up a couple of ways for Miss M to re-wear these pieces all summer long… hope they inspire you too.
