Hanna Andersson…it’s a play dress, it’s a day dress!

 For those of you with kids, I’m sure you’ve heard of Hanna Andersson.  I first got hooked on their pajamas.  I mean…the organic cotton and the prints are SO GOOD!  Super soft, and you can wash them a kazillion times, and they still look new!  Maya doesn’t know about brand names, but now that she dresses herself, she goes for what she loves.  And honestly…if I didn’t intervene with the occasional “Don’t you want to wear SOMETHING ELSE?!!“, she’d wear her same favorite Hanna Andersson dresses over, and over, and over.  Not that it’s a bad thing, but…I may have bought other items that just sit hanging… 😉

SO…imagine how thrilled I was when I was contacted by them and asked if I would want to test out their spring “It’s a playdress, it’s a daydress” (This was last fall!  Just want to make sure you know that I’m not torturing her now in the cold temps!!).

I’ve been DYING to share these images, and I’m so excited that I finally can!  Fair warning…this is a long post, but really…it could have been 3 times as long!  Put her in one of these dresses + a pair of their leggings on the beach, and she’s in heaven!  Sadly, the leggings got soaked about 5 minutes (typical…), and I took them off 😉Blog Hanna Andersson Forever Play Dress Navy Floral-1 Blog Hanna Andersson Forever Play Dress Navy Floral-2 Blog Hanna Andersson Forever Play Dress Navy Floral-4 Blog Hanna Andersson Forever Play Dress Navy Floral-5I love this next one.  It totally looks beautifully posed.  Clearly…it wasn’t 😉 Blog Hanna Andersson Forever Play Dress Navy Floral-6Of course, she had requested temporary tattoos on her a few days before.  I tried wiping them off, but is there anything more authentic on a 4 year old??!

Sometimes Maya is my “pop of color”

 I wore this outfit when the Huz and I went out to dinner with my parents.  These pants from H&M are a liiiiittle hard to get on, but they have an elastic waist so they are totally comfy.

It was the perfect time to go all out with the color on Maya.  This is so not me (therefore not her haha) to wear such bold colors and flowers, but I love it!  She had to wear the hat (she wears it around the house constantly)!  Hey, it kind of matches, so we went with it!Blog Zara Sweater HM Faux Leather Pants Born Booties-1 Blog Zara Sweater HM Faux Leather Pants Born Booties-2I’ll admit that I didn’t realize just how tight these pants were until I looked back on these pictures :{  Darn holiday indulging!
