There is a part of this blog that I have been wanting to expand on, and that is, style and fashion. I personally used to touch on this topic a good bit on my personal blog and when I created Southern Mama + Child I made it a goal to still try to make it a part of the blog. Even though I became a mom and wore spit up and baby food on my yoga pants everyday, I still wanted to make sure I never lost my sense of style. I am excited to be featuring Mallory of Charming in Charlotte today! Her style is just so classic yet fun and she is always spicing up your typical dress! I just love her mommy and mini series, too, they are inspiring and always encourage me to be more creative with what I wear. You will just adore her and Landry Kate! So excited to have her post here today! Be sure to check out her precious blog! Thank you sweet ladies 🙂
Hi! I’m Mallory and I write Charming In Charlotte, it’s so nice to be here today. Isn’t Britt a doll?! We connected through Instagram a few months back and upon learning that she’s a fellow Louisiana gal and LSU alum, I kinda loved her right away. She asked me to share some Mommy + Me fashion with you guys today, so here we go.
::Insert long story here about how I left my job in corporate retail buying two years ago to move across the country to Charlotte and be a stay at home mommy to our sweet girl::
I started Charming In Charlotte to document this adventure and serve as a journal to our friends and family in Texas and Louisiana. It’s now turned into SO much more and is my little place to stay creative and stay as fashionable as a toddler mom (who likely has avocado either somewhere in my hair or on my clothes daily) can. I started our What We Wore series in May because I have such a fun time dressing our daughter. It’s even better than I expected. I wanted to remember all of these little outfits and I also wanted to use the series to document how quickly she grows and changes. It’s become one of my favorite posts each week and I plan to make a book for her with all of the images at the end of the year. We act silly, we say cheese, and I chase her….mostly I just chase her. It’s awesome. The premise is that something between our outfits ties them together for each post. Today we are transitioning our bright pinks for Fall (so that we can still wear them to support kicking Breast Cancer’s Booty) and I am layering up Southern Style for October (which we all know is still HOT). My skirt is actually a sleeveless dress from Old Navy, layered with a fitted tee, topped with a denim jacket and I added another fun play on pattern mixing with the leopard heels. Landry Kate has on her printed pants from Janie and Jack’s spring collection with a really light chambray swing top and too cute tassel necklace both from Carters. Her mint green ballet flats are a fun pop of color. See below to shop the outfits!
Britt, thanks again for having us here and letting us run around on your beautiful blog. I hope that you guys will come visit us at Charming In Charlotte sometime and say hello or you can follow us on Instagram for a daily dose of random fun!
