i know. i know.

{head hanging in shame}

i’m officially that mother i’ve mocked for all of my life.

and my little person is suffering the consequences of my blatant hypocrisy.

although, from the way she juts that chin of hers, so sovereign and splendid—all self-derived of course: the climate of orange county entitlement seeping into their pores starting at birth, she’s just as depraved as i am when it comes to our love for bonnets; beaufort bonnets in particular.

introduced to the beaufort company by my friend alexei, i swooned for smelling salts at first glance of these sweet vintage caps.

i proceeded to spend sutton’s first year’s tuition to vassar on their website.

community college it is!

{let’s be honest though, sutton’s favorite toys are tupperware and tissue paper….vassar won’t even be opening up her application letter.}

hatched out of south carolina low-country, the beaufort bonnet stems from an heirloom, baby bonnet pattern handed down through generations of sweet babes.

they are even prettier in person, very durable, and wash up beautifully-i throw them in the my washing machine and hang them to dry.

and not just confined to headwear, the beaufort company makes gorgeous apparel for boys and girls as well.

sutton was soon clad in their rompers and bloomers, and looking for an invite to the nearest afternoon tea, high-society charity event, or fundraiser for the league of women voters.

she settled for sidecar donuts.

the child will not stand for a bow, nor a headband, but throw a bonnet atop her head, and voila: she’s a jane austen, reciting-fool {!}—-all, afternoon, long.

 {always insisting on the “emma” role and castigating mommy to the unclever, without beauty character of “miss bates;” she scurries around playtime, bonnet bedecked, matchmaking her tissue paper and tupperware tops.}
