Gemma has been going to preschool, three days a week since last January. This year is the last of her being part time, before entering pre-kindergarten. Over the summer during camp, I had a dose of what it would be like to have all three in school full time. The first few days, I plowed through work and household chores, but the remaining days was odd feeling not having them around. This year, while I still can, my goal is to savor every minute I can with her.
I am trying to schedule less meetings on her off days, so we can spend time together. Just today, our day was filled with her swim lessons, a trip to the park, lunch, and then walking to get the bigs from school. The work is certainly piling up, but these two days per week that she is home, I am going to make special.
I was first introduced to the brand Ele Story during holiday time, the girls wore these adorable wool dresses to every Christmas party imagiable. Now I was excited to see their first ever Mommy and Me collection. My girls, especially Gemma, are all about dresses that twirl when they spin, so when I saw the Tutu Cute Dress for girls, and the Gold lurex Skirt for the mamas, I couldn’t resist getting this combo.
The girls mini dress adorns a rose gold and blush floral, along with an embroidered mesh that sparkles. Her skirt boasts two layers of soft and luxurious gold lurex tulle, plus a knit jersey lining that has an extra skirt ruffle, perfect for the fun twirls. I’m totally digging my Gold Twirly Tulle Skirt. It’s not only a must have for this season, but I can see making use of it all year round. It’s casual enough to wear with a tank top, or elegant enough to dress up with sparkly accessories.
I’m super excited to wear our matching frocks for a special event we have next month! Now I have to get one more for Siella!
