make-believe: city rambles with a baby.

September 4, 2014

There have been a lot of ramblings around these city streets lately. Faye’s a happy little traveler, grasping the little wooden ring I tied to her stroller and taking in the sights with wide eyes. While I love the routes we typically take, lately I’ve been daydreaming about taking her on long walks in other cities. These wouldn’t be an occassion for us to flock to the tourist attractions, really. Instead, we’d scope out the best pastry shops, snag spots on people-watching benches, and soak in the sights and sounds of the city before ambling through city parks, stopping to throw coins in fountains and listen to organ grinders. In this fantasy we’d be a stylish little duo, toting:

1. An extra large tote with snaps to serve as the perfect incognito diaper bag. 2. One in a series of the most beautiful travel guides I’ve seen 3. A very pretty water bottle. 4. A golden bangle for mama. 4. A coyote teether for Junebug. 5. A recycled leather sack for keeping things organized 6. A linen dress for keeping cool when the temperatures refuse to drop 7. Gingham bloomers and a mismatched smock for Faye 8. Entirely unneccesary but awfully adorable baby sandals 9. And fancy mama sandals because in make-believe there’s no such thing as stubbed toes or sore calves.

More make-believe.

    Where is that tote from? The hyperlink goes to a Baby Bjorn on Zappos.

    That tote is *awesome* as a diaper bag! It's life will continue on long after we no longer need it for wee things. I would recommend it in a heartbeat!
