Happy Memorial Day friends! I hope you have all been having a great weekend!
I’ve got exciting news for you today! If you have been following me for awhile you will know that I have a daughter. I have always referred to her as “the unnamed child” throughout the years, so I was able to freely tell stories about her without embarrassing her. Let’s face it, when your kid is in middle school, simply breathing in public will cause embarrassment for them, so for me to post photos or to write stories about her and have people know her name was completely off limits.
Fast forward a few years, and the “unnamed child” is now 20 and is now a little more lax on her rules.
When the great people over at Tobi sent us some goodies, we jumped at the chance to do our first mother daughter photo shoot!
Eve Off Shoulder Skater Dress & Carina Palm Print Shift Dress
We live in Kansas, and in the summer it is insanely hot and incredibly humid.
That being said, I don’t like to wear anything too tight or constrictive, and I live in sundresses.
This Carina Palm Shift Dress is right up my alley!
Here she is folks!
This is Sydney. She’s 20 years old and a senior in college. I would say that Tobi’s age demographic leans more towards Syd’s age range than mine, but they definitely had a lot of pieces that I really liked, including some really pretty sundresses and maxi’s.
Syd chose this pretty little white Bella Lace Skater Dress.
She liked that she could wear it on its own or throw a jean jacket over it if she was heading out on a date where she knew she might be going to a restaurant that might be cold.
She also chose this adorable little Eve Off the Shoulder Skater Dress in this super cute blue gingham!
My hubby said it made her look like Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island, which got him a blank stare in return (wow we are old!).
This can be worn on or off the shoulders, and she loves that you can dress it up with heels or down with flip flops.
Tobi carries dress, shoes, accessories and more.
They also carry name brands from Free People to Steve Madden!
Head on over today as they have some great Memorial Day sales going on!
We had so much fun shooting together! My hubby was the photographer so it really was a family affair!
Thank you Tobi for sponsoring this post! All comments and opinions are my own.
I loved the versatility of the lace dress & the unnamed child looks great in both outfits. I also think your summer dress is beautiful.
You are right on the Mary Ann from Gillian’s Island comparison – right down to the freckles on her lovely face!
