Lets Talk 1st Birthday - Outfits

I know you all are dying to see my awesome invitations, which is what I think I promised next, but I still haven't taken a picture of them! I'll try tonight, if Robert isn't forcing me to play the Biggest Loser game on the Kinect! How about we talk about outfits for the birthday instead?

I feel like the HUGE trend right now is for whole birthday tutu outfits, like this:

Or event sets like this are pretty common to come by:

Adorabs, right? While I am not one who normally goes with what the trend is and I typically tend to hate shirts emblazoned with embroidered names on them, I decided to go with it! I figure it probably wont be for very long I ca dress Sadie up as cutesy as I want, so I might as well do it while I can! Especially when there are so many cute options out there! I took inspiration from the following:

We have great children's clothing/embroidery store here in town (Simply Adorable) that is making me a custom shirt with Sadie's name, the number 1 and a sun that matches the invite. I am pretty sure I am going to get them to make a bib to match too. I thought long and hard about making the tutu myself, after all I have made several before for Sadie. But when I saw this one at Target for just $14 I could not pass it up!

You can't really tell in the picture but it's really full and flouncy, which is what I wanted. Remember me talking about not killing myself over this party? This is one of the areas I gave myself some slack, I bought the skirt.

I have no idea what the weather is going to be like in a few weeks, so I will probably put Sadie in leggings but if I could guarantee it was going to be nice warm weather I would probably invest in a pair of bloomers like these:

I die. How cute would that be crawling around the floor all day?

I still have a few things to figure out for the final outfit, for example; shoes! I think I have put shoes on Sadie twice in the past (almost) year, so I doubt I will put any on her for the party, why try and introduce something new then?

Anyways, there you go, my ideas for the outfit for this 1st birthday party!
