Success!

So yesterday, I embarked upon an excursion to Target. These treks always seem to be an adventure, because I ALWAYS leave spending way more than intended, carrying way too many bags, and having spent way too much time wandering the aisles.

It has become quite a habit lately to wander through the kid's clothing section to browse through the selection of spring dresses. I usually find a few that I like, but none that are the appropriate color, style or size.

Until yesterday, that is.

I am pleased to report semi-success with finding flower girl dresses! This lovely, ethereal creation was pleading for me to take it home. And for $16.99, how could I refuse?

While they don't have this in a size even remotely close for the littler girls, my mother's fairly confident that she can figure something out. And don't let this picture deceive you --- it's the perfect color aqua in person. I actually held the invitation up to it yesterday, and they matched!

I love the "fluttery" feel of the dress. The ruffles, the fabric --- it all lends to a very summery, garden-chic look. And when I picture it on my sweet nieces, all armed with their flower wands with streaming ribbons, how can I not smile?

Now if only we'll be as successful with finding shoes...

I LOVE it! And you can't beat the price!! What sizes do they have?

Maybe we could cut it down.

Much cuter in person and on the girls!

So both your girls fit into it? So what are we going to do for the smaller ones, that dress can't really be cut down. I went and looked at it today too.
