My Favorite New Dress (Plus the Cutest-Ever Photobomber!)

On me: Dress, Club Monaco; boots, Steven Madden (plus similar here); bag, Loeffler Randall; necklace, Lulu Frost (old, similar here and less expensive here) On mini-me: Top, Crewcuts (old); skirt, Target; boots, Clarks (on sale!).

Imagine this: It's a Sunday afternoon, on an unseasonably warm day. You're in the middle of an outfit post shoot and it starts out normally. You take a few shots, standing awkwardly on the sidewalk. Then, suddenly, the littlest, cutest photobomber comes onto the scene. She's dressed in her closest approximation of a mini-me version of your outfit and she's got quite the bag of posing tricks up her eggplant-colored sleeve. 

But, really, if someone's going to steal my thunder, at least she's pretty cute, right?

So...on to the outfit. This is probably my favorite new dress. I love how it looks like a sweater and skirt that I just happened to artfully style myself (ha), but it is, in fact, a (super-comfy) dress. I wear it with these combat boots on days when I'm going to be running around all day to events. For a dinner out, it's also cute with heels or my favorite heeled boots

And the bag! I lusted over this studded-black hobo bag for ages and finally broke down and bought it. Finally, can we just talk about my daughter's boots? They're from Clarks and I'm obsessed. She is, too.

What do you guys think of the outfit? And how about my little photo-bomber?

You've got the cutest style, family, and blog. Who does your photos? I wondered if it was worth it to get a professional, or if you use family/friends.

Love the outfit! Beautiful color! And the combat boots would definitely be my choice since I seem to always be running after my kiddies.
