Lucy Lu is the sweetest little one. She exudes joy and passion for the world around her. It is only fitting that we captured her sweet beauty in an outfit that gives her the freedom to explore, enjoy, and chase sunlight, bugs, and giraffes. Once again, I fell in love with the latest adorable outfit from Matilda Jane’s “Paint By Numbers” Collection. The three pieces that Lucy Lu wore for this session seem to match her boldness, playful spirit, and rough and tumble stage of life. The three items that she is wearing are:
The Turtledove Knot Top is incredibly durable that I am sure that it would last through many years of playing in the mud, climbing trees, and twirling around. While it fits a bit more like a dress now, it would look great when it fits more like a tunic. While it’s a 12-18 mo. size item, I think it could be worn much longer since Matilda Jane has created such a versatile line of clothing! The details on the Turtledove Knot Top fit with the reputation of all of the other MJ clothing: beautiful colors, stylish designs, patterns that remind you of what childhood should be about, and plenty of buttons, ruffles, and ties!
The gallery leggings and stipple tee were so soft that I’d be tempted to let my own daughter sleep in these clothes at night and then wear them all day.
I remember crying as a young girl when I had to wear scratchy or uncomfortable dresses… but I don’t see ANY tears from Lucy Lu as she is so comfortable that she doesn’t even realize how cute she is!
Lucy Lu is simply precious!!
We had to go outside for a few shots since the sun had finally broken through after several days of heavy rain! Lucy Lu shows her feisty spirit and passion to explore the world in the following few photos.
When you live in a big city like Lucy Lu, a colorful outfit stands out even more against all the concrete!
This adorable outfit from Matilda Jane’s “Paint By Numbers” Collection adds a sweet style to this 1 year old girl’s natural beauty as she delights in the world around her. Each piece fit together in a funky and unexpected way to create a look that was unique to Lucy Lu’s unique personality. The Turtledove Knot Top is a perfect way to be sweetly feminine while tackling the challenges of each day — jumping over puddles, crawling after a street cat, and for this sweet girl, pulling herself to standing so she can grab her little giraffes on a nearby chair. The Gallery Leggings worked perfectly with the Turtledove Knot Top and Stippling Tee but each of these pieces can be paired with so many other clothing items in your closet to add just a little extra style. The stippling tee would look adorable with a pair of blue skinny jeans too! These items are made to last for many years and won’t fall apart after just a few months or few years. I’ve seen far too many clothing companies these days create items that will literally fall apart after you’ve worn them just a few times so while Matilda Jane may seem ‘expensive’ compared to your trip to a local big box store – you are ‘investing’ (yep, I said it) in just a few items that can be mix and matched to create the same number of outfits for the same budget. I’d much rather have several Matilda Jane items in my daughter’s closet than have a closet packed full of cheap quality clothes that fall apart when they are worn by girls who are beautiful but also love life with such zeal that they aren’t going to sit quietly in a dress and just let the world pass them by. What a sweet opportunity to capture Lucy Lu as she turns ONE AND get to review such a beautiful outfit from a great company! Thanks Matilda Jane for the opportunity!! And thank you Corrie for the opportunity capture your daughter’s beauty and playful spirit!!
