Smockingbird Photo Shoot!

Behind the Scenes Fun Girl Time Growing Up Smockingbird Kids Fashion Photo Shoot Smockingbird Smockingbirdies Texas _f _i _l _s

So this is one of the most special things, ever.  It's one of those times I realize that this little business is so much more than pretty dresses.  My friend surprised me with a Smockingbird photo shoot. Not only did Jill organize everything, get a workout photographing a group of girlies, and edit tons of photos so that everyone could have individual shots to enjoy, she opened her closet to share with all of the Smockingbirdies who came. I don't think we've ever had a Smockingbird photo shoot.  It is so sweet to see years of work come to life in...

Smockingbirdies take American Girl Store!

American Girl Brands We Love Fun Growing Up Smockingbird Kids Fashion Livie & Luca Shopping Smockingbird Smockingbirdies Winter

This post is completely overdue, but still worth sharing because the Smockingbirdies had the best time.  The girls received American Girl dollies from Santa a couple of years ago.  They have a pretty nice assortment of clothing and accessories at this point and seem to really enjoy them.  But the girls had never been to the AG store themselves!   So, we made it a girls day.  The Smockingbirdies brought their dollies and a pet, and we headed to AG Atlanta with appointments for hair, reservations for the bistro, and plenty of time to look and shop. The hair salon is really...

Run and Buy These Wings Now.

Brands We Love Butterfly Douglas Toys Gro Growing Up Smockingbird Livie & Luca Outside Smockingbird Smockingbirdies Spring Style

When a mama tipped me off to these amazing wings, I picked up a couple of them on Amazon for the Smockingbirdies.  They are such a hit!   I chose butterfly wings for the girls.  Sophie chose a multi-colored butterfly and immediately ran all over the yard flapping her wings.  Mollie picked the Monarch.  She is hilarious and fluttered around yelling "I am the queen."  Mostly I loved that the wings encouraged imaginative play and running around outside.  I'm thinking they will be great for summer. The wings are made from a lightweight nylon that floats nicely.  The vibrant colors are gorgeous (and coordinated surprisingly well with the girls' Smockingbird outfits...
