One of my most favorite memories from my childhood is dressing up with my mom in our matching sunflower dresses whenever we traveled to the beach. I can remember it so vividly, even the matching sunflower hair ties we had for the dresses. They’re memories I cherish along with the dresses I still have, both my mom’s and mine. Last year, Ava and I tried on the dresses to see how they fit. It was a very emotional and special moment for me. I can’t wait for both of us to slip into them again!

Knowing the sentimentality behind a sunflower print, these dresses Ava and I wore above brought back memories of my mom and I from years past. My sunflower dress is an absolute favorite I’ve had for a few years now. When I saw Ava’s dress from Pat Pat, I knew it was a clear winner. The bright sunflower pattern along with the ruffle sleeves make for a darling summertime combo!

Good morning, friends! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. We had some gorgeous weather making it ideal to spend as much time as we could outside. Everything from gardening and sprucing up the yard, to lake trips, eating al fresco, star gazing and catching lightening bugs in the evenings made this weekend a memorable one.

How cute are these matching eyelash and lip print tops?! Ava calls them the kissy face tops lol. They’re the ultimate for a causal cool style. I love that they’re pink too! I have a white version from a few years back. The print has always reminded me of Marilyn Monroe, one of my favorite gals. Both tops run true to size.

Good morning! Today’s feature is another Mommy and me ensemble in tropic palm leaf print dresses. They’re so cute and fun for a casual summer day. I found both my dress and Ava’s to fit true to size. My dress has some padding for a built in bra (though I still wore a bra with mine) and a cute criss cross open back design, which is very eye catching! Ava’s dress has the same palm leaf pattern, but with adorable ruffles along the chest and shoulders. We had a blast playing in the sand, running, kicking the ball around, and having a little picnic on my beach blanket. Afterwards we took a slow walk to enjoy the evening. It’s these little moments that are always special and end up creating a memorable day.

These are by far the cutest swimsuits Ava and I have! I adore anything that’s mommy and me matching, especially when they have a fun retro feel to them. These red polka dot swimsuits are the hit of the summer season, not to mention eye catching and darling with their sweet ruffles along the top. I found the sizing to be true to size for the toddler version. The adult version runs small. I would recommend sizing up one size for a comfortable fit.

These photos were taken out first day on vacation at the Cape. The weather was amazing and the beaches were practically untouched with an abundance of seashells laying on top of the sand. Ava had a field day collecting all of her seashell treasures and then arranging them on my towel!

Good morning, friends! What more can I say than I’m absolutely head over heels in love with this dress. The light pink color along with the charming novelty print made up of birdcages, pinned butterflies, and postage stamps adds to the pin-up perfection. The shirt dress with a darted bodice, belt, notched collar, and darling cap sleeves all lend to the flare of the 1950s. Did I mention it has pockets too?! Simply swooning. The fit is true to size. How cute are these pearl clips!! Pearl clips are a huge trend right now, really any hair accessory, and with good reason. They have a vintage sophistication, add some charm, and the practicality of keeping your hair out of your face. I’m all about that. The set I have comes with ten pieces (two of each style) for under $13. They’re perfect for various hair styles (pinning hair back on one side, pinning back both sides, using a clip to pin a chignon…the list goes on), matching with you mini me, or using double clips on one side. Ava was so excited to wear one of the clips so we would match! I love these photos with her and I as well. She really is the sweetest! She always kisses me whenever we take photos together and I was able to capture some of those moments above.

Good morning and happy Monday! Mothers Day is this Sunday and what more perfect way to celebrate than matching with your Minnie Me! Ava and I saw these tops and thought they were the cutest thing. Disney always has the best outfits for family matching fun. These tops would also be adorable with some matching skirts. We went to one of our favorite flower parks to take these photos before meeting with some of my friends to take our kids to dinner and the movies. We all saw Ugly Dolls, which the kids loved! There’s some pretty cute songs and a great theme of everyone is beautiful inside and out.

Good morning, friends! With the Easter holiday right around the corner, I thought it would be a good time to show the outfits we’ll be wearing this year. Ava actually picked hers out before I got mine. She loves anything mint colored right now so it was no surprise when she choose her mint floral dress. She looks absolutely darling so ready for spring! I even recently put a mint cover on my phone, which Ava insisted we use during the photos. Anything mint lol! I’ve always loved matching with Ava, just as my mom had done with me, and couldn’t resist this mint floral embroidery dress with its whimsical retro feel. Everything about it reminds me of a romantic spring dream. It fits true to size. I’m wearing a size small.

Good morning and happy Valentine’s Day dear friends!! Each year, Ava and I celebrate this special love filled day with a party where we dress up and enjoy some yummy treats, fruit, and music. We always pull out our prettiest plates and cups to make it feel extra special. This year, Ava wanted to wear her yellow princess dress styled after Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She wanted me to match in yellow so I pulled out this LC Lauren Conrad Maxi pleated dress from a few years ago. We listened and sang to some of her favorite Shinedown songs, by her request!, and chatted about what a lovely party it was. My little babe loves to celebrate. I will always be thankful for my forever Valentine and all the love and happiness she brings to my life. Thank you, Ava. I hope everyone enjoys this special day!

Good morning, friends! As you know, mommy and me posts are my absolute favorite here on Enchanting Elegance. I get a big thrill each time I’m able to feature one. I’m particularly fond of this one because  of its nautical theme, which is very close to both my and Ava’s hearts. Come sail away with us! Both the sweater and sweater dress feature a wheel motif on a hydrangea blue background. I love being able to wear this sweater with a jacket now in winter, but I can also imagine wearing it with some jeans shorts and flats or wedges in the summer too. It’s perfect for those cool summer nights. This is how you do nautical year round! Both fit true to size. I’m wearing an XS and Ava is in a size 4.

Darth Vader Pumpkin Kit || Pumpkin Kits || 

Happy Monday, friends! First off, the biggest congratulations to my cousin Chris and his new bride Julie on their beautiful wedding this past weekend! It was an amazingly lovely event filled with love and happiness. I couldn’t stop smiling the entire time. It’s rare to find two people so perfect for one another and these two are it.  

Halloween is fast approaching and my little Ava bug is extremely excited! I’ll give you two guesses who she is going to be, lol. This year we decided to go with a pumpkin decorating kit as the main “big” pumpkin with her favorite love Mr. Darth Vader. What I love about these kits is how easy they are and how you can re-use the parts for the following year. Darth came with black paint, a paint sponge, his head, two arms, and chest plate. We got ours at Target for $10. Once the paint was dry, I made small holes in the pumpkin to push the pieces into. I saw online some people used a decorative black pumpkin from a craft store like Michael’s instead of a real one, but we went with the real deal. After the pieces were in, we touched up some of the paint where it was sparse and voila! A pretty cool Vader pumpkin was born. Needless to say, Ava LOVES it! It’s a good idea for any last minute pumpkin decorating too. Happy decorating!!

Blush Sweater || Blazer || Houndstooth Ruffle Skirt || Blush Vanity Bag || Burgundy Heels (Old, Similar) || Tortoise Necklace || Ava Bracelet || Ava’s Dress || 

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did some antiquing and hit up a local craft show and a harvest fest, both of which were fabulous! They definitely put me in a fall state of mind, even though the weather decided to switch back to summer for a brief period. We had temperatures reaching into the 90s. Also, for my friends and family in the southeastern part of the U.S., specifically North and South Carolina, please stay safe! We’re praying for you! 

 While I love the rich hues of autumn, there is one color I wear year round, regardless of the season. Some may shy away from blush or rosy colors this time of the year, but they blend beautifully with fall’s vibrant color palette. On Ava, we see the very popular color combo of gray and pink, usually mixed with some white, for fall. Imagine a cozy pink sweater with white jeans and gray suede over the knee boots. I’m wearing some warmer tones to mix blush with and the ever popular classic houndstooth print. Pairing an accessory in blush can be an alternative way to work the color into your autumn ensemble as well. This vanity box bag, which Ava and I both love!, has a wonderful vintage vibe that works very well with the nostalgic feeling Fall tends to have. The color is gorgeous along with the gold hardware.

Happy Friday, friends! Today I’m very honored to introduce a brand I’ve only just found out about, Réna Iman. This classic blush clutch, with a customized tag featuring Ava’s birthstone, provides that beautiful  personal touch and is made of the highest quality leather inside and out. What really makes this brand quite special is how their handcrafted timeless pieces go on to support stopping violence against women one unique story at a time. A portion of every purchase is donated to the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance and the Joyful Heart Foundation. 

 It’s hard to believe this is the last official meteorological day of summer. It truly did fly by in the blink of an eye as summer usually tends to do. The first calendar day of fall is September 22, but meteorologically it starts on September 1st. There’s still plenty of warm weather left though making this romantic wrap dress an absolute must! It’s on sale now for only $15 too. It’s light and airy with the most beautiful ruffles and watercolor print. There’s also a black and a rose version as well. I love how it flows and all of the feminine details making me feel at my very best. 

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend! We’re planning some outdoor activities and of course a fireworks show. Cheers!!

Good Morning and happy Monday! This has to be one of my favorite Mommy & Me outfits to date! This pink layered tulle skirt has been on my Chicwish wishlist for quite some time now. It’s whimsically romantic and the prettiest shade of blush. This skirt has a magical quality to it. It really does! It’s one of those pieces that can make you feel at your best. It can set the mood for the entire day. Doesn’t the skirt remind you of Carrie Bradshaw in the opening of Sex And The City too?? There is a new black style that was just released as well. When I saw there was a matching skirt for the little ones, I knew this would be perfect for my little mini me and I. Ava and I felt like princesses and everyone that saw us stopped to say how much they loved our outfits. It’s was the coolest day! We danced and twirled all while laughing and having a good time. Kisses and hugs included <3 I’m wearing an XS/Small and Ava is in a 3-4 year.

Another day, another red dress! This was the first rain free day we had, which meant heading outside for the entire day! Ava and I visited various places, but stopped at one of our local parks for the majority of the time. It was refreshing to see and feel some sunshine and to spend time with others enjoying all that summer has to offer. This shirtdress is a vintage dream! It’s included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which ends August 5th. These red bow flats, which I am obsessed with, are also a part of the sale. The red color is striking and the bow on the flats is adorable. Top notch with good details. I had so many people come up to me on our day out to tell me how much they liked the outfit, which to me, is clear that it’s a winner! Both fit true to size. I’m wearing a 0p in the dress.

Good morning and happy Monday! I'm so excited to finally be able to share this post! As you know, any post that has Ava in it is very special to me, including this dreamy sunset with our mommy and me outfits. I absolutely adore matching with my mini! Ava’s sweater from Monogram Mary was the inspiration for our outfits. It’s a beautifully made roll neck sweater with a turtle motif and Ava’s initials inside. I was blown away by the quality of the piece and also how cute Ava looks in it! It’s the perfect weight for a cool summer night too. You can chose from a variety of motifs, thread colors, monogram styles, and different fonts. We kept our look casual with the pink sweaters. some jean shorts, and pink sandals. I really love the third picture of Ava here. She looks like a little model! It truly was a magical night with the gorgeous sunset and fun we had while capturing these precious moments.

Good morning, friends! This dress could not have been more perfect for being on the Cape.  The flutter sleeves give the dress just the right amount of flair while keeping the look classic, elegant, and fun! I love how comfortable the dress is too. This was another look that I matched with Ava, though we didn’t get too many photos together other than our macaron snap and our yearly family photo in front of the Nausset Lighthouse, which is the lighthouse on the Cape Cod chips bag! This is one of those dresses I love to keep in rotation all summer long. It’s so easy to throw on with some sandals and go. 

What a gorgeous day we had! We started at one of our favorite antique stores and then headed to Cake and Islands Dessert Shoppe. They’re known for their sea glass candy, but also their macaron cookies. They were amazingly good! We ate all of them on the beach, haha. Next we stopped at the National Seashore Park office in Eashtham, which is also where the Nausset Lighthouse is. Fun fact, on August 7, 1961 President Kennedy signed a bill establishing the Cape Cod National Seashore to preserve the Great Beach and prevent large scale development from occurring at other places along the Eastern seaboard. It includes 43,607 acres and nearly 40 miles of seashore along the Atlantic coast. After visiting the park office, we went to the beach where Ava played with a sand turtle toy she got at the park store and then eventually to the lighthouse to get some photos. Ava thought someone lived inside the lighthouse and kept knocking on the door. She is adorable to watch! To end the day, we stopped in Chatham, my second favorite town on the Cape. It is beyond charming. We stopped for dinner at the Chatham Raw Bar to try out their oysters after hearing so many good reviews. Trust me, they were the best oysters I ever had! I’m kicking myself for not getting a photo of them, but I literally inhaled them as soon as they got to the table.

It has my all time favorite vintage vibe going on with the forever fun polka dot print and the tailored white shorts with an adorable bow at the waist. I matched Ava with her ruffled polka dot top and white bottoms. I seriously cannot resist matching with her! Both pieces fit extremely well and are true to size. I’m wearing an XS for reference. We took these photos at a newly found restaurant for us. Persy’s became one of our go-to spots for breakfast with a huge menu, great prices, and even better food! The meal I got the most was eggs, bacon, home fries, and a common crumpet. Of course some coffee too!

Good morning, friends. First, I want to express my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Kate Spade. My heart goes out to them. I was completely shocked and saddened to learn of her passing yesterday. Her brand and vision have always been an inspiration for me bringing color, sparkle, and whimsy into the fashion world. I remember getting my first Kate Spade bag only a few years ago and what a monumental moment that was for me. She brought affordable luxury to the masses and allowed us to peak into her world of fun and vibrant colors. She did live colorfully and she did leave a little sparkle everywhere she went. Thank you Kate. You will be missed. 

This was one of my most favorite photography shoots we did while on vacation in Cape Cod. I told Ava these were our princess dresses, which she loved! She kept telling me we looked like princesses for the rest of the night. She didn’t want to take her dress off. Both of our dresses are from Chicwish, a favorite of mine. I was happy to see they started carrying children’s clothing too. As soon as I spotted this tulle floral dress, I knew Ava would not only love it, but look darling in it. She’s wearing a size 3-4. She wears a 3T now. My heart swooned a bit when I saw my dress. It’s perfect for any formal event, especially with wedding season upon us. Mine is currently sold out, but I linked some similar ones also from Chicwish.

We took these photos at the JFK memorial on my 30th birthday. A great way to end a very memorable day. This is my favorite spot on all of the Cape and that’s saying a lot since every spot on the Cape is charming and dreamy. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous going down behind the memorial and glistening on the water fountain. It’s relaxing and very peaceful to be there, especially with Veternas Beach being in front of the memorial too. It’s a great little spot to come and the spot where I initially fell in love with Hyannis. I can’t wait to share the rest of our photos from our vacation!

Good morning and happy Tuesday, friends! I don’t know what it is, but I adore matching. I love matching my accessories to my outfit and I especially love matching my outfits to Ava’s. Those are my favorite! I was thrilled when Julie Brown NYC told me they were doing a matching collaboration with Dress For Cocktails. I could not wait to see what they had in store. The dress is so vibrant and stands out in a crowd. It also has pockets, which, let’s be honest, is one of the best features for a dress to have! I’m wearing a size 2, but I should have gone with the 0. The 2 felt a little loose. Now, the bags (tote and clutch) have a removable magnetic bow, which matches the print of the dress. There are also a few different colored bows available to mix and match. I told Ava the little matching clutch was hers to carry around and she loved it. She also really liked the removable bows. She was constantly switching them around. It’s a neat idea!
