Where better to learn the art of puddle jumping than in sunny Los Angeles? I mean it! We got a couple rainy days in January, and LA is the only place I know of where Clementine could splash around during the dead of winter with bare legs, a gorgeous view of the city, and famous architecture right next to her all at the same time.
We started our day excursion on Echo Park Avenue because there is always something creative and artsy going on around there (and not to mention it is the only way to walk to our apartment’s parking lot…).
Then we took a drive to Barnsdale Park, which is where the Hollyhock House by Frank Lloyd Wright is. It started really pouring while we were there. It was Miss Clemenade’s first time puddle stomping and it only took about 2.8 seconds before she decided that sitting in the puddles was actually more fun than just running through them. Hey, why not?
I’m loving the vintage gingham dress she’s rocking. This was one of our “stuff-a-bag-full-of-clothes-for-$5” thrift store finds. There is a really fun light-weight square collar that adds a bit of “smart” to the outfit, and a little bit of rouching/smocking right below that with fun embroidered touches. The headwreath was an afterthought, made quickly out of a few strips of fleece. Clementine is still going through the horribly awkward mullet stage, and so far this type of head-piece is the only thing that keeps the party-in-the-back at bay!
