Being Brickner : She's in Scarves

She's in Scarves

If I am perfectly honest, my mind is most often in style overdrive.  Fashion is pretty much my obsession.  I would be embarassed to admit how many minutes of my day are spent thinking about potential outfits, current trends, and my favorite stores. 
Before having my daughter, I had always heard that after kids, style no longer matters.  Most moms could care less about it.  Unfortunately for my wallet, that didn't happen for me.  If anything, my desire to go to the mall has only gotten stronger.  Why?  For obvious reasons ... to dress that cute girl of mine.  And truthfully, I still like to look nice myself, too.  Maybe not as much as before, but the need is definitely still there.  Fashionable moms can be good moms, too, right?  I really don't think I need the "mom haircut" to be able to be effective at this new role.

So for all of the reasons listed above, and more, I am SUPER excited to link up with Kelly, Lindsay, and Megan next week for Trendy Tot Tuesday.  Babies AND fashion?  I'm not sure it gets any better than that.
I'm so anxious to get started that I have to talk "Waverly Wear" now.
Actually anyone who knows me is aware I could talk Waverly Wear everyday if that was socially acceptable.

Today's trendy topic?  Scarves for my baby girl.  It may not seem like scarves & a baby are a good match, and they certainly are not in high demand or taking over the racks at Carters.  However, we like a good accesory in this family, and furthermore, most of anything I wear, I feel like Waverly Maye can rock, too.  Here is my girl in some of her stylish scarves ...

Onsie; H&M, Pants; Baby Gap; Shoes; Zulily; Headband; Baby Gap;
Scarf; Etsy
Outfit; Zulily, Shoes; H&MScarf; H&M 
Dress; Zulily; Tights; Babies'R'Us, Blanket; Target, Hat & Scarf:  H&M
Overalls; OshKosh, Onesie; H&M, Shoes; Zulily; Hat/Scarf Combo; Etsy

 So there you have it.  We love a scarf.  And perhaps the best part?  Most of them she won't outgrow as quickly as her other clothes.
(Come on ladies ... you know the best part of an accesory is that they always fit!)
Looking forward to next week for my first official Trendy Tot Tuesday.

  1. Omgosh she is so cute and fashionable! I applaud you for getting her fully dressed -- my baby lives in pajamas and one piece so diaper changes and the like are easier!

    1. Haha - I am totally afraid of that! My hubby keeps asking me what I am going to do if that happens?! I say - she can be a tomboy with cute clothes. :)

      Just in case - I guess that's why I will get all I can in now!!! :)

  10. I love that little pink chevron scarf! What a cutie you have!! I too love accessorizing my little babe (even tho they usually end up on the floor), but haven't tried scarves yet. They may be next on the list...

  11. Love the scarves! I don't have any for my little lady but I have had the thought many times! She really doesn't like bibs, so I'm sure a scarf would be no different! Thankfully she doesn't mind headbands because she wears one every waking moment of her life!
