Cotton Candy Delight


Flower Girl before and after! When my in-laws renewed their vows in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary this past weekend, my 5-year-old had a chance to be a flower girl for the first time. There was no one who enjoyed her dress more both during the serene, dignified state of walking down the (beachy) aisle, as well as during the more rowdy, hula-hoop inspired reception. She was so excited to wear this pink Cotton Candy dress from the Kirstie Kelly for Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings Princess Blossoms flower girl collection. I paired it with a pair of wild rose Crewcuts patent leather ballet flats I found on sale at J.Crew online over the holidays. The shoes did not stay on her feet for long, although of course she is now insisting on wearing them to school every day even in the wintery New York weather. —Michelle Preli
