{birthday wardrobe...some shopping required}

as any mother would be, i'm starting to plan out 
the very important parts of vivienne's first birthday party...
her outfit.
i'm thinking she will wear either her fur or leather fringe vest with a pair of pink or chartreuse neon leggings. but where i'm stumped is the shoes. i reeeeally want a pair of freshly picked moccassins for her. i've been a wee bit obssessed with them since i first saw them on little mason disick a few years back. 

seriously, so cute

the practical side of me has a very hard time spending a whopping $60 on a pair of shoes for my babe who doesn't even walk yet. although, now that she's getting very very close to being upwardly mobile, it's seeming a bit easier to justify to myself mr. w.

H's Freshly Picked! Thanks FP!

my main apprehension is whether or not they hold up well for a walking tot if there is no real sole on the bottom? any moms out there know from experience how they do? if they would hold up on the streets of nyc i feel they might be the perfect shoe for her early stages of walking this spring/summer rather than a sandal which i think would be much easier to trip in. 

ok, moms...
help a girl out, what have been your thoughts on the cutest moccasins known to mankind?

{Paris On The Brain}

the last few days i've had our time spent in paris on my mind.
it's such a magical city.
i only dream of returning someday.
until then, these spaces will do the trick.

Gorgeous bedroom!



 so romantic, that city of love... *sigh*

Magical Tent

i dream of the day we add a tent to vivienne's room. 
bedtime stories would seem magical in here.

Lovely #kidsroom
this will be happening once she's old enough.

Here I sit in my beautiful hotel room in Chicago with an amazing view watching a movie while my entirely exhausted lil one sleeps so soundly in her borrowed crib in the foyer of the hotel room...its a Saturday night in a fun city and all I can think is how much life has changed since the last time I was here five years ago. All that Mr. W and I could think of was which top restaurant to go to and what bar had the best ambiance and best view and how excited we were to get dressed up and go out each night. Fast forward five years and I'm instead so excited to find that when the lil one and I arrived they remembered to put a crib in our room and that our bathroom has an amazing bathtub to play with her favorite animals we brought. To some it might seem as though life ends and all the fun is over once you have kids, but I find that now is when the fun and adventure have only just reached a greater level. I think of all the travels and experiences we've already had and I only get excited for more memories to be made...even the ones that have me lying in a hotel bed at 7:30pm in my pjs while the city is all dressed up with places to go and people to see so my lil one can sleep...good night Chicago.its been real.
