An Afternoon With The Nutcracker

Fashion Jewelry Lifestyle Mommy and Me

Some of my fondest childhood memories are going with my mother to see The Nutcracker by the Pittsburgh ballet.  Today I took my 5 year old daughter, Makena, for the first time.  The special occasion called for a special outfit, for both me and her.  I pulled all of my resources for this look, a dress I designed, jewelry I merchandise, a handmade treasure I love, and even a special gift from grandma.

I chose a simple, two color palette - ivory and ruby - giving more focus on style and accessories.  Makena wore matching ruby velvet shoes while my dress had ivory contrast details.  I'm in love with the look and I hope you are too! Shop the post below!

    I’m a Chloe + Isabel merchie too! The jewels look lovely with your dress. I think it’s so special that you’re sharing your tradition with your daughter. I hope you had a magical evening together!
