The idea of tulle overlay dresses is fabulous! They are so versatile: wear only the simple under dress to a beach or a playground, or add the mesh overlay to make it really dressy. And I think it will look super cool if worn over some jeans and T-shirt. Ellie’s grey Hibou dress by Eliane et Lena was designed like that, 2 in 1 – simple A-line tank knit underdress with beautiful, full, and twirly tulle layer over it. Love the ballerina design on the front peeking through the mesh! Alice is wearing Matilda Jane Cake Batter Lap Dress (Hello Lovely collection) under the detachable mesh layer of Special Snowflake Dress from 2014 Holiday collection. Headbands and shoes: Matilda Jane Popcorn headband and Melissa for Vivienne Westwood Anglomania wedge platforms – on Alice, Persnickety Zaya Gray Rosette headband and Bonpoint Philo T-bar canvas sandals – on Ellie.
I’m back from vacation and will resume loading you with ideas for cute mixes and matches! Yesterday was cloudy, warm, and nice, and girls wore navy blue and white outfits. Ellie wore gorgeous Eliane et Lena floral summer dress called Naoki. I love the bodice details and structure on front and back of this dress, and included pictures for both. She’s wearing it with our favorite PePe perforated Spectator Mary Janes and Persnickety striped hair clip. Alice was wearing Persnickety Tank with written Martha Washington quote and Jak & Peppar skinny jeans called Peppar Prep School skinnies. They look awesome, but Alice was complaining about their super low rise, afraid that her underwear would show when she sits down:) Her boots are by Naartjie.
Matilda Jane Platinum Cotton Tail Fancy Shasta dress with Eliane et Lena cropped Aquarelle leggings and Persnickety Zaya Gray Rosette headband – that’s what Ellie has on. Alice is wearing Matilda Jane Sienna Puffer tee and Aries Big Ruffles under her Persnickety Betsy Halter top from Bo Peep collection. Her Wishing Well headband is from the same collection. Both girls wear Joyfolie shoes: Alice’s teal flats are Piper in seagulls, and Ellie’s dusty pink sandals with pretty flowers are called Jasmine.
Girls’ hair looks so messy by the end of the day… Alice is wearing Persnickety set of Eggplant Trapeze Hooded tunic in purple stripe and Triple Ruffle leggings in Cranberry, both from Fall 2011 collection. Her boots are Flower Power by Oilily. Ellie is wearing Onekid black and white striped dress with Eliane et Lena Edwina tights. Her shoes are perforated Spectator Mary Janes by PePe.
Ellie is wearing Eliane et Lena Pat dress and Tamara tights in fushia. Persnickety Rose Bouquet headband. Zara fur boots. Alice has Persnickety outfit on: Navy Lou Lou long sleeve top and Drew pants in green polka dot. Her green headband is called Leia, also by Persnickety. Boots are Larisa2 by Petasil. They’re really comfortable and durable – Alice wears them to school almost every day for about two months now, and they still look alright.
I love this Eliane et Lena ‘open back’ dress that Ellie is wearing. The black long sleeve tee is not a separate piece, it’s all sewn together and stays comfortably in place, even if your daughter is a little hurricane like my Ellie. The name of the dress is Iso. She’s wearing it with Confetti tights, Persnickety Brownie Pie headband, and PePe suede boots. Alice is wearing all Jak & Peppar: Lace on My Mind top, Woodstock Maxi skirt, Janey leggings in olive, and Stevie headband. Her short green suede boots are by Naturino.
