ooooh i love my striped shirts. despite the wee snowstorm yesterday, you can smell spring here in virginia. apropos of presidents' day, we are celebrating at the wonderful jefferson hotel in richmond. scout is in her ralph lauren orange and white french stripe bateau knit top. i bought it years ago at tj maxx because it was on sale for 7 dollars, she is finally fitting in to it beautifully. the white jeans, a year round favorite of ol' mum, are gap purchased at building 19 for i think 8 dollars. i bought both a size 6 and 7 so she will be all set for next year too. she took a major digger running circles around cecelia's house - no matter a little bleach and white jeans are as good as new, making them a mom favorite. the red sneakers are tom's which i did pay over 20 dollars for but given a shoeless child gets a pair for every pair purchased well that's all i need to know. the swimsuit is banana cabana and was 2 dollars, i bought about 6 of them off season at nordstrom's off the rack
the look of lilly pulitzer at a fraction of the cost.
