Dylan and I took a walk this afternoon when I got home from work and I was amazed at how suddenly we had spent almost an hour walking around the block, holding hands, and actually having a conversation.  A conversation with my little 21-month old!  Albeit a good majority of Dylan's "talking" actually involved him using baby sign language, but for the first time there seemed to be a continuous back-and-forth between us instead of just him pointing out random things here and there.  Our nanny took him to the Dallas Arboretum yesterday where they have a Tiny Tot Tuesday program.  Dylan told me about how he played with his friend who had a red ball.  When I asked how he liked his first face-painting experience, he told me about how the man who painted him wore a hat and how he got a puppy drawn on his face but also really liked the tiger option too.  It's amazing to have a little friend to talk to now.  I feel like we've hit another milestone!  This is probably my favorite of them all.  :)

I was rummaging through my closet the other day looking for pieces that I hadn't worn in awhile and came up with this army green shirt.  With its military-inspired cut and color, it can naturally be a bit more on the masculine side, but when paired with a pencil skirt, a statement necklace, and a little pink bow belt, it's nothing but feminine.  The colors ended up being a bit safari inspired but since spring is all about getting outdoors, it seemed fitting nonetheless!

For this week's Color Brigade link-up, the lovely Rathana from FabFashionaire is co-hosting with me!  Rathana dreams about spreading her passion for styling all over the world and lovesdesigning pretty little things for digital content.

  3. It is SO COOL when these moments come by. I had a moment like that the first time I heard my daughter reading too. And the first time I realized that my younger son was actually doing math. And a similar experience with my oldest son when we were talking! So special. I love the mustard pencil skirt!

  5. thanks Rathana! and I actually speak just Chinese to Dylan so a video might be hard to understand for a lot of people. I might still do it anyways and just add some captions. Thanks for the idea! :)

  7. Yay! Old school "cute and little" with the Color Brigade material! This is a sweet outfit you've put together- perhaps even candy sweet. In fact, the blouse is sweet with its chocolate brown color, that stylish skirt is like a nice caramel color, and the vanilla coat is also sweet. So... sweet outfit, Kileen! :) Oh, and nice pumps and handbag.

  11. omg, your nightmares! this mustard skirt is one of my faves and it's funny to think how much I debated buying it in the first place.

    and Dylan really is such a joy. sure he's had his tantrums but we're working on managing them better and he's really growing into such an awesome little boy!

  14. Hi Kileen! Love the skirt and the belt! Also I think I did the Color Brigade linkup wrong. Sorry about that!

  16. Kileen, that's a beautiful look - love the curry skirt and the bow belt is extra cute!

    Enjoy the wonderful time with your little son. My children are adults now and these steps you describe have been an amazing adventure. Every age is great (ok, some are more challenging *g*) and now we have these adult conversations which I enjoy so much. Great that you bring up Dylan bilingual!
