We are such big fans of Matilda Jane Clothing. They sent us a some new pieces from their Paint By Color collection. Elinor loves any dress and rarely can we get her to wear pants. The Turtledove Knot Top is adorable. She kept twirling in it calling it her new tutu. The Gallery Leggings and Stippling Tee are both so soft and perfect for layering.
We decided to take out Christmas pictures with Elinor in this outfit. It wouldn't be stiff like a big fancy dress but it is just as pretty. We went to Longwood Garden to take some pictures inside the conservatory. We thought it was such a great idea. We would be indoors and would be able to have a pretty background without having Elinor wear her coat. Well, she had different plans. She just wanted to run and play. Once we gave up on trying to take a picture we had a lot of fun. A tip for members, stroller rentals are free and they even give you a fleece blanket for your little to cuddle with!
The next day we tried for a Christmas photo just at home under our tree like we have done in the past. It worked a lot better but still could've been better. I think when working with a 2 yr old you can't have your expectations too high. And yes, Elinor wore the same outfit the next day...and the day after. She likes it that much. No arguing with her when she knows what she wants and it is a really cute outfit.
