Strawberry-Picking & Fruit Fashions

We have taken Waverly strawberry-picking for the last two years, the first year she wasn't walking yet but last year, she had the best time ever & I immediately knew that we would make it a spring family tradition.  I'm really not sure there is a better activity for toddlers, running through a huge, open field endlessly surrounded by strawberries that your mom actually lets you taste.  Plus, that mom is almost always guaranteed a long nap afterwards, its a total win-win. :)

My mom, sister, brother & I took Waverly last week, I wanted to go as soon as possible since we are officially on baby watch these days & I'm all about getting in some quality time with my big girl before life changes for all of us.


Waverly definitely ate more than she picked, but it was too cute to watch her with her little basket walking down the aisles.  I also loved looking back & comparing these pictures to the ones of her there last year, these types of the things are exactly the memories I hope my kids will love to look back on one day.


Waverly's strawberry romper is BabyGap last season, I'm so glad that we stocked up on a few different styles when they had them so she could be dressed in theme. :)  I'm still loving this fruit craze, it's hard to find as many strawberry prints this season but pineapples & lemons are everywhere (for big and little ones), & are making me equally as happy.  Here are some of my favorites, not listed are this shirt & trunks for your little men, both so adorable!

I know the pineapple shower curtain doesn't really quality as a fashion, but seriously, I am obsessed.  How fun would that be in a little kids bathroom & also, where was that when I decorated my apartment in college?!  I don't think my husband would go for it now.

Hope you are all having a great week!

  7. Mason LOVES strawberries. I think there is a place nearby that we could take him to. I should look into that! I always thought it would be too messy or he wouldn't care but he might just love ripping the strawberries off the vine (gently hopefully - so we don't get kicked out lol). Maybe I will look into it for this weekend! :)

  8. First, love the pics! We are hoping to take Charli strawberry picking when the field opens up here. Fingers crossed that it opens before we move! Second, I have always loved pineapples and am LOVING that it is in trend right now! For both boys and girls too! I LOVE that bottom pineapple bikini!!

  9. Waverly looks like she had the best time! The little strawberry stains on her cheeks are the cutest.
    I need to look into finding a strawberry patch near us. I think my whole family would likely eat their weight in berries if we had endless rows to pick from!

  12. We did the same thing this weekend! She looks adorable as usual. May I ask a camera question? What lens and setting do you usually use? I am struggling with my 50mm and manual settings and I know I just need more practice. Yours are consistently awesome! Can't wait for the baby news!
