Confession. If I had a little girl, I would be that woman who dresses the baby like her. And I would walk right past the disapproving looks and still love it. Hold. The. Phone. One company has indeed made it possible for me to still be that woman.
Prepare yourself for my favorite pictures EVER. This girl is my new shero.

The company that makes my new favorite shirt is called... ready for it... striped shirt.com. It is the cutest shop I can imagine. I wish I'd thought of it. The shirts come in the colors of your favorite sports team and every size imaginable. The lovely proprietor, Laura Beck (who is adorable times three), introduced us all to these bad boys at the Texas Style Council Conference and was so generous as to give us ALL shirts. She is amazing and I predict this company goes far. I swear she didn't bribe me or torture me to say any of this.
They are super comfy and of very high quality. I love that they have 5% spandex along with cotton. So, they don't get easily stretched out like most super soft shirts do. The one thing I would warn you about if you want to order one however, would be that they are plenty roomy. I got a size smaller than I would normally wear and did just fine. Max's is a little big on him, but it's adorable when things are too big on him because he is a walking peanut.
Also, because they are so soft, I got some little fuzzies under my arm on the first wear, but they removed easily and it now looks as good as new. I'm clearly going to be ordering a LOT more because when the Phillies get done, we have the Eagles to think about (the green and white). Also, Max will be getting bigger and I'll (hopefully) be shrinking very soon.
One thing you all should do right now, today is book a session with this amazing young photographer. She is booking up fast with spring here, and you just have to have some of her lovely photographic art in your life. Also, get in now while her prices are crazy reasonable because she's clearly soon to be commanding the big bucks. I mean, I saw what I looked like yesterday (a little meh), but these pictures made me feel beautiful. As women, it's so important to our emotional health to be able to see how beautiful we truly are, and she was able to find that for me with her camera mad skill. Guess which one is my favorite? ALL OF THEM. Plus, it was so much fun working with her. She was so professional and I felt like a model the whole time. Also, she kept telling me how great I looked, so that's how you know what a wonderful treat it was for me. I also got to hang out with her little girl who is seriously a real life cupcake. Seriously. Right now. Book it. Suz Bushman Photography You can also see lots more of our little photo sesh over there.
*Disclaimer-- Neither one of these businesses asked me to tell you how great they are and if you ask them, they'll probably be all "Electric Elmo What-y?" They just make me super happy and I wanted to share because I love ya and want my all readers to be happy too.
