** Updated with winner, below! **
The following post + giveaway brought to you by Old Navy (To check out the Old Navy kids & baby sale with prices starting @ $5, go here!) and is the second of three "Wear/Where" posts featuring the lovable stylings of miss Fable Luella as she adventures to some of our favorite local haunts clad in apropos play clothes we picked together via her closet.
For our next Wear/Where cladventure, Fable and I hooked up with the boys (Hal & Archer) and sojourned to a place we'd never been before as a family of four (rhyme time!): Central Library downtown. I don't know about you but libraries sing "cardigan" to me, especially red cardigans with bows (naturally) and leg warmers over tights have been a part of Fable's signature look since infancy. So. Without further ado, here's what we wore wear...
Where: Los Angeles Public Library, Downtown L.A
Wear: Red bowtie-cardigan over black and white striped shirt-dress,
white ruffle-bottomed tights layered with silver-starred leg warmers.
For hair = another handmade (pinwheel!) barrette.
For feet: black ballet slippers
of and Fables
What: We spent the day perusing the Central Library, checking out books with the kids and rolling down grassy hills in the surrounding gardens. (Many of the following pictures below were taken by the fountains in the front of the library and in Maguire Gardens.)
It was Fable's first time in the Central Library which is insane. I don't know why it took us until now to take her. Not that our local library isn't awesome, but the Central Library is magical - Beyond its architectural awe, it's one of the rare welcome-to-all places where everyone seems genuinely happy, friendly, gracious. Books do that, don't they? So do people who love them.
Later in the afternoon, whilst playing in the grass outside the library, Fable rolled into a bit of mud, hence the lack of tights in these next few photos. (And Hal wondered why she was wearing tights AND legwarmers. Ha! Mud is why, Hal. Mud. is. why!)
We went on to explore downtown, ran around the waterfall at Pershing Square until Fable made it clear she was too tired to run. Or walk. Or stand without falling.
On the way back to the car, Fable fell asleep in my arms...
... and stayed sleeping until we arrived home.
