This weekend was nice. It was the first couple of days where we didn't need more than a sweater to step outside. Anxious to get rid of some of the winter clutter, I started packing away the hats, mitts and scarves. The second Eve sees accessories, she immediately hits dress up mode. Today's ensemble includes a Mexican cotton tunic, denim leggings, a shawl sweater, a snake snap bracelet from Luke's room, a slouchy knit hat, a metalic scarf made by my aunt, and a pair of thrifted handmade moccasins. At first I wasn't getting her accessory vibe, but after taking a closer look at these photos, I totally see where she was going with this. Note the matching green snake with the embroidered top, and how seamlessly the copper tones of the scarf compliment her cardigan. Clearly a bohemian fashionista like Blossom or Punky Brewser.
I loved Punky Brewser when I was a little girl. I thought she was the coolest, and if you were an 80's child, you probably did too. The character also made me love and wish for freckles, which I do have, but not in the cute Punky way. I used to add a few extra ones in with eyeliner pencil ( thinking I was fooling everyone ). The actresses name is Soleil Moon Frye - and I have to tell you, that definitely influenced Eve's middle name choice. I always thought that was the coolest middle name ever. I hope one day she can appreciate my choice for her, and not think her mom was a hippie nutter.
