The first time I saw this “outfit” in the window of Babette’s boutique I fell in love with the look. It’s not a look for me mind you, but I have major crushes like this and think, “Oh, that would be perfect for Andrea.”
Then I wonder, “Would she wear it in Chicago?” Finally I decide, probably not and lament the fact because I would really like to buy it for her. Since she reads her mother’s blog every day, maybe she will prove me wrong.
Yesterday I sent off a box with adorable things for Ella, a pretty navy silk blouse from Babette’s with beading around the neck for Drea plus a pair of bright pink patent ballerinas, both from Babette’s shoe and accessory boutique next door. Both were bought during the winter soldes.
If you’re coming to Paris, the summer sales begin at 8 a.m. (what boutique opens at 8a.m.?) on Wednesday, June 24, and run through Tuesday, August 4, approximately six weeks.
Oh, yes, the marinière t-shirt with the lace skirt? It’s a dress from Leon and Harper.
