Of course, being a recovering shopaholic, I have splurged on a few really special pieces, and I couldn't not share our most recent purchase for our little daughter...
Growing up, I was an I Love Lucy fanatic. As a nine-year-old, I found it extremely comforting to curl up to reruns on Nick at Night and I believe I've read Lucille Ball's autobiography Love, Lucy (it graces our coffee table even now) in its entirety a half a dozen times.
Moving on to the Edgar Allen Poe onesie... Carl and I actually met in 2008 in an Introduction to Poetry class; he was pursuing his BA in Creative Writing and I, my minor. Quite...apropo, ay? (Pun intended. Hehe).
And finally, Abraham Lincoln has been a huge source of inspiration for Carl, as a law student and otherwise. I love the baseball tee style. This little girl will be representin', that's for sure.
So no, these aren't quite the frothy little tulle confections that you'd imagine, but she has plenty of those in her wardrobe already. These are probably much more us anyway. I can just imagine her in her little Lincoln onesie, pint-sized Vans and a big, fabulous pink bow in her hair. So fun.
