Thursday


Well, it's not easy to get good photos of a 20-month-old. Especially one as athletic as ours. She has lately discovered an obsession with running (no surprise given her affinity for sports) which makes it particularly hard to capture photos of her that are not simply a blur. It takes some maneuvering. So...I have attempted (with only partial success) to take some pictures of her in her new linen sarouels by L'atelier de Marie et Rose-Alice. They are perfect on her, and so cute! They're also conducive to her activity, being roomy, cool and allowing for plenty of running.
I'm still loving mine, as well...especially as the weather grows hotter here on the Front Range of the Rockies.

I had the most luck when plonking her down on her special chair, which is too tall for her to climb down from on her own. This way, she's a captive to my lens...it is not, however, the best way to capture the beauty of these pants.

Sarouels in motion. They're awfully comfortable, very airy, and practically weightless...next best thing to that wonderful kaftan I've been fond of this summer.
Finally, I lifted her feet off the ground for a moment - thus capturing, at least for a split second, the wonderful shape of this design.
Then we had to move on to something she really enjoys: measuring. She loves to be measured. And no wonder, since she grows at a preternatural rate. She equates measuring with having a book set atop her head, which is funny. This morning, I measured her on an actual chart, and she was 34", which is (according to the chart) a 2T size. She will not be 2 years old until late August. Yup, the kid is growing at a furious rate.

They look really great on her. I can feel your daughter's energy through the screen: what a good work-out !
Muguet and QQ have the same height ! But my daughter is considered as petite.

Maia, guess what! Sarouels are my absolutel fave pants nowadays! Everyone in Marrakech and Barcelona were wearing them (well, NOT everyone...). So I got myself a couple of pair!!! Also, I am soooo in love with Goorin Bros. hats these days--those modern versions of the Panama hat like the one you have. I wear mine almost everyday!!! See, like minds think alike!!

Thanks, all, for the kind words! Of course, the Q would look good in a paper bag (and may someday appear in one) but that's just how she rolls.

Jen, why am I not surprised? But it delights me to hear...aren't they just absolutely the MOST fabulous thing to wear in hot weather? I had to order a second pair for both of us. And yes, I love the faux-panamas. We have several lying around, and Q loves to try them on and then pull them down over her eyes like Paddington Bear, which always makes me laugh!
