A little variation from the outfits we wore at the parc. Same vests, different shoes and shirts. This faux-fur vest is just so comfortable I could sleep with it!
Lula is wearing a Madewell scarf, Zara tee-shirt, cardigan, pants and h&m vest, and of course Freshly Picked mocassins! I am wearing a Zara vest and tee, Levi’s denim and Golden Goose boots.
And tomorrow, we are flying to Morocco! I am super excited! Have a beautiful week!
We went to the park this afternoon for a little walk with my family. I love so much those first days of autumn when you feel that first crisp breeze! The temperature dropped by almost 10 degrees this week, summer is officially gone. Lula and I can wear our new vests! Hello my favorite season! (well, not for long because we are going to Morocco next week)
Lula started walking by herself a couple days ago! This is the cutest thing ever! I got her a mini stroller and a doll at Le Petit Souk in Lyon this morning and she loooves them! (I also fell for this one I first saw in Paris a couple weeks ago)
Hello! Today I wanted to share Lyla Honey’s adorable nursery featuring my cloud hooks. I love to receive photos from my customers. Thank you for sharing Alicia!
My little sunshine turned 13 months yesterday. She is a super happy baby, smiling to everyone, dancing every time she ears music and she even starts dancing as soon as I put the CD player on and there’s no music yet. She is a talker! She has so much to say and point things all the time. She’s been walking with a little bit of our help these past weeks but yesterday she did the first three steps by herself when she saw her great grand-mother arrive. We just bought her first real shoes that will help her walk. It was so cute to measure her feet in the shop! She is size 20!
We’ve been spending so much time outside in the garden and by the pool since we arrived at my parents. And the dog is always around, so excited to see her. They go explore together. She gives him wood sticks she finds, she also loves to share, she shares her food with him, and with us too, she shares her toys, pacifier…
I am so excited for the next months, it is so fun to watch her becoming a little girl! Oh and she has 6 teeth now! She only had 2 at the bottom last week, and this weekend 4 at the top popped out all at the same time.
Remember the swan floater we had at Lula’s birthday party? Well, he travelled back to France with my parents to welcome us in the pool when we arrived last week. It feels so good to do nothing but relax by the pool. We were in Paris and Ile de Ré last weekend and we are going to Aix-en-Provence (where I studied and I haven’t been back there for 8 years!), Sainte-Maxime and Saint-Tropez this weekend and Morocco at the end of the month, I can’t wait! It is the first time in 6 years that I spend more than 2 weeks in France and it is really nice to have more time to relax between running everywhere to see family and friends…
Here is Lula’s new little play area in our living room. My parents and grand-parents offered her this table and chairs for her birthday. I first saw those chairs in a shop in Los Angeles and fell in love with them. So when my mum asked me about some birthday gift ideas I thought a cute little desk and chair would be useful and fun. She already has so many toys and clothes! We ordered the Little Bert chairs online and got the table from Ikea, I think they go really well together. I decorated the wall with my paper fox of course and a pom pom garland I made with these Eeboo kits.
I can’t wait to draw and do some little craft projects with her! ( I know I’ll have to wait a little bit for that, I gave her Crayola crayons the other day and she was more interested in eating them)
A couple weekends ago we celebrated Lula’s first birthday. If you’ve seen her party invitation you already know that the theme was “Fete Foraine” inspired by Le Parc de la Tete d’Or a gorgeous park in my hometown. We couldn’t have hoped for a better weather and were so glad almost all of our friends could be here with us to celebrate and my parents too!
I had fun making the paper decors: swan, ferris wheel, cotton candy machine,pinwheels, garlands, little train and ice-cream stand. The napkins, glasses, tablecloths, plates were from Meri Meri and the party hats from Oh Joy for Target collection. Our friend Thibault made 30 delicious belgian waffles (thank you again so so much, they were a hit!) and my mum brought from France a lot of sweets: cherry lollipops, dragés, biscuit rose de reims, roudoudou…. we also had pop corn, Sugar & Spun cotton candy, cupcakes from Mission Minis, Dynamo donuts and Anthony’s cookies (thank you Maria and Jason! my favorite cookies in SF). Ouahh so much food and I didn’t even find the time to eat, I was so busy running everywhere…but I caught up the day after with the left overs!
I hope you enjoy looking at these beautiful photos taken by amazing photographer Priscilla Gragg! Merci Priscilla!
Sorry for the amount of photos, I couldn’t choose! (and even more to come)
Of course she went for the donut!
Where is Milo?! haha
Lula wore 2 different outfits! She started with a super fun tutu from Australian company Rock your baby. And then she wore a Jacadi dress and Freshly Picked moccasins. Her pom pom felt crown is from Hiho batik.
This is the party favors the kids left with: delicious cotton candy from Sugar & Spun, Ice cream cone bubble maker and beach toys to make sand ice-cream from Party City!
We had a super fun day and our friends spoiled her with wonderful gifts. Thank you all so much for coming!
Aren’t these super fun for a mother daughter style? Can’t wait to receive them!
