when mr. b and i first met, we went out and bought a vespa on a whim. we used to zip up and down the san francisco hills, exploring our city with a sense of freedom and wildness. when i got pregnant, we put the vespa into a corner of the garage and there is has remained for the past two years, collecting dust and all but forgotten….until recently. a few weeks ago, we decided to take the vespa out of it’s corner of the garage, dust off the cobwebs, and take it for a spin in the warm summer air. holden loves pretending to drive it and it’s now become our go-to date night vehicle, the perfect summer ride. our next purchase might just have to be the mini vespa for kids so holden can join us.
i can’t help but slightly coordinating holden and my outfits from time to time (ok, ok, 99.9% of the time) and i was beyond thrilled to collaborate with one of my favorite mamas of all time, nicole of lillies and leon, who also enjoys styling her little man in slightly similar outfits to her own. and so we teamed up to show you how to style one item two different ways. we chose two classic styles from the fun hello apparel line, the hello football t-shirt for us mamas and the hello raglan pullover for the boys, and a piece of jewelry from nidia e., and then we each put our own twist on the garments.
if you know anything about me by now, you know that i love my tulle skirt and i couldn’t help but dress up the football tee just a little bit. holden rocked a slight beach vibe since the sweatshirt was perfect for a slightly chilly morning at the beach. you can head over to nicole’s blog to see how her and adorable son wore the same hello pieces.
