As I’ve said before, one of the best things about having a girl is the clothes. Everywhere we go, people always comment not only on Zoe’s looks, but they also comment on her clothes, her coats, her shoes. To the point where I wonder when this will become a problem for her and expecting attention as she gets older. I do occasionally dress Zoe in jeans. I swear, I do! In fact she, she has them on today. But then I try to find a way to make it different by paring it with an unexpected top or even a dress. I mix and match patterns and styles and it works. So when I came across Zozobugbaby, I knew I had found a clothing line I was going to love. Julie, the genius behind Zozo (named for her oldest daughter, Zoe, who along with her little sister Delia, is stunning!), makes exquisite, colorful clothes. I wish I could afford one of everything. In every size.
The dress Maddie is wearing in these pictures was my very first Zozo purchase. I loved the colors, patterns and fabrics and had to buy it. But I knew I wanted it in a bigger size, not Zoe’s size. (Although now I totally wish I had gotten in Zoe’s size too.) I was so excited when it came in the mail, back in December (!!!!) and I was even more excited to finally use it last week!!! It fit Maddie so perfectly. And I paired with the petticoat from The Measure (another incredible clothing maker), over jeans and bam!!! Perfect mis-matched outfit! Maddie and Zoe had a fabulous time running around The Planting Fields Arboretum and Maddie’s mom, Jessica and I had even more fun taking their pictures!!

Love Maddie’s expressions:
Love the arm up for balance on the left and the on the right, another “Mommy, come with me” stance:
Maddie made faces to keep Zoe entertained:
Seriously, so freaking cute:
I really wanted to get pictures of this dress with the backdrop of forsythias. Just before we left and Zoe was really at the end of her rope, I spotted a huge spray of forsythias! I threw her Zozo dress back on her and got some cute shots:

Lovelovelove this dress:
I love this shot of Maddie:
I can’t wait to use more of my awesome Zozo dresses in future shoots and for Zoe just to have fun wearing hers out and about, now that we’re finally getting some warm weather in NY!
