One of the new features I couldn’t wait to introduce after Audrey Leigh was born was the Mama & Baby Style Series. Like my old outfit posts, but with a very cute little miss by my side. (There will still probably be solo outfit posts too!) Not only is she starting to wear more interesting ensembles now that she’s out of newborn sizes, but I’m beginning to feel a bit more confident about how I look and dressing my still-recovering figure. (Thank goodness for thrift stores–it has certainly made dressing my postpartum figure affordable!) I’ve been wearing a lot of outfits that fall into the “casual rockabilly” category, or conversely sporting a minimalist hippie look. In other words: I’ve been having fun with my clothes, while keeping things practical enough for the daily realities (especially since Miss A. has a way of getting messes on me!). I haven’t owned a denim pencil skirt in years, but it’s a nice break from jeans!

Yes, we are wearing matching headbands–doesn’t everyone? lol. I admit, I harbor schemes of eventually (one day!) making us matching summer playsuits! Or dresses… Matching mother-daughter dressing may be so 1988, but I don’t really care!
Look who photobombed (as usual!). He is so curious about the baby–and I’m pretty sure just a wee bit jealous of all the attention she gets. He’s so gentle around her though (usually; unless he’s being wild); we do have to keep a very close eye on him when he and Audrey are together since he has no idea how big and heavy he is! (Let’s just put it this way: he still thinks he’s a little puppy and tries to sit on our laps!)
