Black and White Wednesday - "Ruffles, Chucks, and Plain White T's"

August 24, 2011

First Shot BLOG
These adorable outfits have been in my posession since the end of July and I have been hiding them from the girls.....especially Sarah because I knew the minute she set eyes on the pink ruffles and the blinged out plain white T, there would be no stopping the little diva. She is all about the glitz and glam.

It's okay little sis BLOG
The night before we left for Cape Cod, I took them out of hiding. The girls tried them on and were running around the house in all their glory. I managed to convince them both to take the skirts off, but not without a few tears, and then I packed them up for the long ride North.

Take My Hand BLOG
I had grand plans to put the girls in these for sunset photos on the beach, but time got away from us and it never happened. I was disappointed to say the least, but knew I would come up with a plan b.

You always need to have a plan b....right?

Sarah Vertical Collage Close Ups PINK BLOG
We came home and had to jump straight into our crazy work week.....

Over the Steel Bar BLOG
but I knew as soon as the weekend was upon us, those ruffles were coming out of the closet.

Reagan Close Up  Petti and Chucks BLOG
I was not sure the girls would dig it as much as they would had they been wearing these frilly little numbers on the beach.

It took a little coaxing to get them to loosen up.

Pettis Chucks and Hands on the phone COLLAGE BLOG
The littlest diva needed just one more accessory to make her ensemble complete.

My IPhone.

The minute that phone came out, little Reags came to life.

Sarah Vertical Collage BRICK WALL BLOG
Not only did the phone become a prop for Reagan, it was also our radio. It was blaring music thanks to the "I Heart Radio" App, which caused the Pink Princess to start striking a few poses.

From that moment forward, these two became almost unstoppable.....and QUITE COMICAL.

Vertical Collage Reagan Phone and Sunflare BLOG
The beaches of Cape Cod were far from my thoughts.

One Up on the Ledge One Down on the ground BLOG
I realized that the location made no difference.

Running Towards Mommy Sunflare from behind BLOG
It was not about where we were.

Reagan Running Away down the alley BLOG
and it definitely was NOT about having them stand in the perfect spot for the perfectly composed photo.

Sunflare through the bulidings BLOG
It was truly about capturing the magic thes two create while enjoying the bonds of sisterhood and all things girly.

Whether they are on a beach at sunset or in a back alley, it makes no difference.
Their love for each other comes shining through.

I want to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU to Kimberley from the Sophia Jane Boutique. The girls LOVE their new ruffles and T's....and I cannot say enough about the quality and workmanship...... not to mention the GREAT customer service. If you have a diva in your house, you must check out her website to see all of the beatuiful things. Click HERE to take a look. Trust me, you will love what you see!

The pettiskirts are TOO ADORABLE and the colors suit them both so well. I am amazed at how big Sarah looks in these shots and Reags...well, that child is beyond precious and is changing right before our eyes.

May the bonds of sisterhood bring joy to these two amazing girls throughout their lives.

Mimi said...

Lisa, these are fabulous photos!
Even though there are loads of pictures in this post, I found myself wishing it would never end; they're just gorgeous. Sarah looks really tall and grown-up, "Reags" (love that nickname!) looks so cute, and her animation with your iPhone is brilliant- that might be the key to get her talking!!
And i don't know how you managed to keep the outfits "put away" for those weeks!

Unknown said...

those tutus are to die for, SO cute, and the girls could not look cuter in them, love it!

Steffie B. said...

They look darling and Kimberley does get the cutest stuff in! Looks like all three of you had a blast..... ;) Enjoy!

Virginia said...

Yep, it's those adorable girls..and those petti's and Chucks that make these shots. LOVE these! Maybe this will motivate me to put Kerry in the pettiskirt that I bought LAST YEAR and take some pictures. Reagan is cracking me up with that cell phone!
