Oh my goodness, that’s such a cute little outfit she’s got on.
(I also love your tights/shoes combination)
LOVE that photo!!!! and love your shoes!
Love it! I think that rule is totally outdated now!
wait, there are dressing rules?! ^_^ I want those shoes Btw, they are awesome!
hey, there’s always “winter whites” so you’re good. just no white SHOES!!!
Since it is still in the triple digits here in scalding Las Vegas, yes, we’re still wearing white. Love to know when autumn weather will be visiting us!
does anyone else look at this photo and think of the nanny in The Muppet Babies?! That show was my favorite when I was a kid. I always loved that you could never see Nanny’s face, haha.
This is a good article from Time about the history of white and Labor Day. It concludes that you’re probably just fine!
You girls look fabulous! I want your shoes, Nicole!
great photo! love the outfits & shoes!
Absolutely adorable! Inspired me to do the same with my little girl (she is 2 weeks younger than Eleanor). I admire your sense of style and always look forward to monthly style posts. What are you favorite sources for clothing for Eleanor?
I hope not because I am wearing white jeans today! It’s the first time for pants in 3 mos since the temps were 100+ here. I doubt anyone at my office cares though…
Cute outfits, mama!
I thought Stacey London said that’s an old rule – so it must not apply anymore. There is something called winter white for clothing, right?
Besides, you two look so adorable…you indeed make everything lovely.
I hope not!
This picture is adorable!
wow! Super stylish mother and daughter, love it :)
that rule is TOTALLY old school..i wore white on Tuesday just BECAUSE…
btw…Eleanor’s shoes and tights are sooooo adorable!!!! :)
Cute! I thought both of you had metallic pink shoes at first.
This is the cutest pic ever. I love how she’s looking up at you!
Who cares about rules, as long as it’s adorable! :D
I just love this picture! How Eleanor is looking up at you! Heartwarming.
YOur site is very cute.
Stacy & Clinton from WNTW said you can wear white all year long – if the fabric is appropriate for the season. Sounds logical to me!
Your shoes are nice! I want one! If only I’m expecting a baby girl, I’d prolly be buying her those cute silver shoes on Eleanor… :)
wow. loving eleanor’s outfit!! then I saw your shoes!!! loooove them.
