As a pretty girly mama that loves dresses and nail polish, I expected Guinevere to have some interest in jewelry and dress up – which she definitely does. But as a daddy’s girl, she also has adopted many of Tyler’s interests as well. She can’t name any of the Disney princesses except for Princess Sofia (if she even counts yet?) but can name most of the Avengers – specifically Captain America, Iron Man, Wasp, Ant Man, Hulk and Thor. She also knows Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Green Lantern and Flash. Tyler is a huge comic book fan – buys comic books and graphic novels weekly, used to go to Comicons, and his increasingly tattooed self has dedicated his legs to comics, featuring gems such as Spiderman drinking a Yoohoo! and Captain America punching out Hitler. I really should get him drunk and force him to pose for pictures one of these days, because he has some pretty amazing tattoos. Anyway, to say he’s proud of her interest is an understatement, and she frequently begs for superhero bedtime stories which really tickles him.
When she saw this outfit at Target, she got really excited about recognizing the Batman logo, and loved the “princess tutu” on bottom. I got a kick out of the detachable cape. And so, once again, mama was a sucker and bought it for her.
Once home, she begged to put it on, and we went outside so that she could practice her flying skills. I’d say she nailed it.
Cutest superhero ever.
Won’t you please join us?
Our guest host this week is Veronika from Veronika’s Blushing. I first became familiar with her back during my Nest days of lurking on the Fashion and Beauty boards, and then started reading her blog right after her wedding. She is a fashion blogger that is one of my favorite inspirations for her conservative work styles and solid reviews of items. Plus, girlfriend has some AWESOME hair. Her daughter Harper was born this summer and is an absolute doll, and I already love how Veronika dresses her, so I’m really excited to have her join us as a guest host this week!
Our Tot of the Week is Sadie from Jason, Me and Baby T. I already love how Jess dresses Sadie (and they are some of our most faithful linkers) but I especially love Jess’ passion for Etsy shops and small businesses. As a small business owner myself, I have a soft spot for others (which Jess is also!) and those who support them. Plus, Sadie always looks completely precious! She and Guinevere could totally be BFFs (because I feel like Jess and I sort of are internet soulmates HA!)
