ruby tuesdays…mommy daughter trip

a few months back my oldest childhood friend and college roommate invited ruby and i to her home in utah to spend a few days with her and her daughter. the girls were born only six weeks apart and although they hadn’t seen each other since they were babies we knew they would hit it off real nice.

so after answering ruby’s questions like “are you saying a “basement” is like a tunnel?” we went to visit our friends. THIS is a trip you must do with you little girls. Without the distraction of her brothers and life ruby and i cruised through our trip. For the first time ever I packed for just carryon luggage…it was dreamy.

Day 1: We stayed at this beautiful hotel and enjoyed the pool, room service and this adorable toy store where we made one of the best investments of our lives. Go Fish Cards.

it took a moment for the girls to warm up as we toured salt lake city.

target style boho for little girls

yellow dress $17.99 / floral and lace dress $17.99 / acid wash shorts $14.99 - we also love the shorts with the daisies down the side available in stores only / studded sandals $17.99 / lace up crochet boots $24.99 / braided silver ring $14.99 / tribal backpack  $12.99 / black fringe bag $26.99- this also comes in a white and teal tie dye and rubes wants it in the worst kind of way

white embroidered flower top $12.99 ruby gasped when she saw this. literally. i know what you are thinking. it is all white, i know! missy came up with a brilliant plan and sold me immediately. “i will only wear it with my overalls mom.” those embroidered flowers peaking out from under overalls was more then i could handle. sold. and her overalls are from GAP (get them now they are already backordered) . target was sold out of the shortalls with daisies. have you seen them? so cute.
