The Strasburg Dress was sent to us to style. I picked it out, and all opinions are mine alone.
This weekend, we moved house and I can honestly say it was one of the most difficult moves I’ve ever done. It just happened to be the hottest weekend of the year so far. Regardless, we really had a fun time with our families helping us. It turned into quite a family affair, and we ended the weekend with a meal at our new house.
While we were moving bin after bin of memories, I was struck with emotion when I found a box of baby outfits that were Izzie’s right after she was born. She was so tiny! I know that all babies are tiny when they’re born, but she’s always been so petite and adorable.
Saving our children’s memories, whether it be art work they’ve done or clothes they’ve worn, has always been important to me. It seems like a lot to manage, especially with three kids, but it’s so worth it to me. Years down the road, I can pull out our memory boxes and shared them with our grandchildren. My mom has been able to do that with my own childhood memories, and I hope to do that in the future with ours!
That’s why I love Strasburg Children heirloom dresses. I used to shop in store when they were located in Smithfield, but now I can easily purchase them online. The quality is so impressive, and the care that has gone into making them is immediately obvious. The fabric is very nice quality, and it’s also perfect for the summer time. The cotton is breathable and airy. The tiny little flower details on this particular dress are my favorite part. The small details, like the flowers and lace, really make the dress special.
The rest of their Charleston Collection is absolutely beautiful! They are perfect for summer beach pictures. I’ll definitely be carrying ours with us the next time we’re at Oak Island.
Izzie and I rarely match, but I do enjoy having outfits that compliment each other. Purple is a really great color for her, and she loves it. The funny thing is that turquoise is mine, and these two colors look very pretty next to each other. I love that she will be able to wear this dress for a long time, but I will be able to save it even longer for future children or grandchildren.
Also, I had to laugh at these pictures just a bit, because we did not plan these poses at all. I don’t know how we posed the same way at the exact same time and my husband snapped the photo right at that moment!
