Monnalisa Chic Blue Blossom Dress

Florals florals florals. They are everywhere. The spring dresses that are starting to show up in stores everywhere remind me of the fancy garden parties you see on shows about the rich and famous: whole dining room sets assembled outside, paper lanterns hanging, fresh flowers, and perfectly-dressed little children running around with balloons or streamers or something. I have a very active imagination. My point being: the dresses are breathtaking. This one by Monnalisa is no exception. A light cotton creation with tulle petticoat underneath to give it some poof, it has embroidered blue blossoms and ties in back with ribbon to make it ultimately feminine. The price? $332.00 at Children Salon.

Okay, I never had shoes that were even remotely close to being this amazing when I was a child. Rumor has it that florals are going to be the "it" trend of the spring and summer months of this year, which makes me a very happy camper because I love that sort of thing, especially rose bud patterns like the ones on these shoes. People first balked at the idea of heels for kids (think the Suri Cruise pictures), but if kids are into them, then why not? These shoes can be found for $167.00 at Alex and Alexa.
