I've always been afraid of pattern mixing for fear of not matching...and well, just looking like a nut, but I thought I'd give it a go. I bought the skirt and shirt while in San Fransisco last weekend and the combination seemed too perfect to pass up! I've wanted this skirt from H&M for a while but they've always sold out of my size so I just ended up getting a size down and it works fine.

Today was Lillie's birthday party! She turned one! I can't believe its been a whole year since she was born. Lillie is the daughter of Emilia, the owner of Mr. and Mrs. DIGZ. I worked for Emilia at the boutique during the end of her pregnancy and into the following few months and watched Lillie growing up! I can not believe she's already a year old. I remember the day she was born and how little she was. 

Lillie's delicious cake

She LOVED her cake!

The adorable birthday girl!

I made her some really cute hair accessories but I unfortunately didn't get any pictures of them. I ended up having to make my own wrapping paper because all of ours was in storage (not very well thought out). I used a stamp, tissue paper, and some paint. Its really too bad when a 1 year old doesn't appreciate the effort of handmade wrapping paper, hahah.



  1. I'm guilty of wearing stripes, polka dots, and plaid all together. It's fun! :)
