I’m a sister kind of person. I love my three sisters. I love my friends like sisters. I love the sisterhood I’ve found in my community, both in person and online. And I was so thrilled when we found out we were having another girl. SweetPea will be best friends with her sister (I hope!!) and she already talks about all the “girl” things they will do together, like, not play with their brothers and dig in the dirt.
When my friend Britt posted about these little girl dresses earlier this summer, I swooned. In large part because I have two nieces whom I was about to visit with my daughter (just her–total girl time!) and one had a birthday coming up, and in larger part because I was determined to buy complementary dresses for my own girls! Even though the baby won’t fit hers for a while.
Ele Story is a mama-run company (Hi, Judy!) that makes their beautiful dresses right here in the United States–that’s a big plus to me as a buyer–and their designs are timeless. I bought this one and this one for my nieces. (Both on sale Sunday only.) This isn’t a sponsored post in that I’m not being compensated for sharing it–just wanted to pass along a coupon code for you if you want to support an artisan mama run shop!
My own little SweetPea got this cornflower blue one, and the baby girl who will arrive at Christmas got this color one. The linen is perfect to your touch and they’ve worn well through a few washings already. The delicate lace work! Ah! So so beautiful. Even though there’s a timeless old-fashioned look to the dresses, Judy also brings flairs of the present into her lines.
This one is in chambray dots is so lovely and totally fashion-forward with a vintage flair. And this tutu dress! I hope you find something you enjoy as much as I did! There’s also a great sale going on this weekend so this one is available in size 2/3 and I am soooooo tempted.

And here are a few outtakes involving the boys for your amusement. Yes, he’s dangling a piece of bacon at his brother.
