Blue Steel









I own cardigans in just about every color of the rainbow. Even though I am well aware of this, every time I go to the store I still find myself considering buying another one. I go through an all too familiar debate within my head about whether I can justify adding yet another cardigan to my closet. Most of the time I decide to put the cardigan back and glance back at it longingly as I walk away. However this was not the case with the cardigan I'm wearing in this post. I didn't already own any embellished cardigans so I just couldn't put it back. That just wouldn't have been right.

Cardigan: Target (similar here and here) // Skirt: Forever 21 (similar here) // Shoes: Gianni Bini (similar here and here) // Bag: Michael Kors (other colors here) // Earrings: Forever 21 // Nails: Essie Fiji

It was not easy to get these pictures of Eve. She fought it and fought it. Only the promise of chocolate milk got her to cooperate enough to snap a couple of pics. Lily, however, is a natural. Just look at that little "blue steel" pout.

Speaking of Eve, I am constantly surprised and entertained by the things that come out of her mouth. Here are some of the gems from this week:
- While I was changing Lily, I asked Eve to hand me a diaper. She replied "Aye, aye, Sir" and saluted me. I'm guessing she picked that one up from Jake and the Neverland Pirates.
- A couple of nights ago Eve took a toy horse from a Cinderella set to bed. When I walked into her room in the morning she was looking under her sheet. She looked up at me and said "I can't find blue horse. I've looked everywhere!" It was a very cute thing to hear from a two-year-old.
- I was tidying up Eve's toys and threw her (already broken) toy phone toward her toy box. In response Eve said "rude" with quite a bit of sass.
