A One Of A Kind Ensemble

~ A  Kite ~
I often sit and wish that I
Could be a kite up in the sky.
And ride upon the wind and go
Whichever way I chanced to blow!

Oh my...how FUN! 
Today Grandpop is taking Riley and her "big girl" cousin to the toy store (always a treat) . . . . . and then to the park! 
And guess what they are going to do??? 
And Grandpop has promised Riley that she can have a kite of her very own...a PRETTY kite of course!

What a perfect springtime adventure!    
Isn't spring great? Aren't Kites great??
Aren't GRANDPOPS great???!!!!!


Pleated Skirt ~ Knit Blouse ~ Wool Felt Vest
Riley is ready for her kite flying adventure in a set that is just perfect for a lovely spring day.  Her "above the knee" pleated skirt is paired with a crisp white cotton knit blouse that features small cap sleeves trimmed to match her skirt.  The neckline and back openings are also trimmed, and a pair of tiny pink buttons embellish the blouse front.  Over the little blouse, Riley wears a wool felt vest that perfectly complements the set.  The vest is trimmed with embroidery that echoes the colors of her skirt, and a loop and button closure keeps it snug around her waist. The back opening is secured with hidden snaps.


Handknit Coat
Finishing off this perky outfit, Riley wears a cozy sweater coat, handknit in a rich turquoise blue imported wool.  Riley's coat is richly embellished  with a combination of applique, embroidery and applied materials. . . . and features a pair of "high flying kites"!  The kites, with their bow bedecked tails, whimsically trail around all sides of the coat,   Braided trim and bows add a touch of interest to the sleeves as well.  Small buttons embellish the collar and tiger's eye beads provide the front closure

Riley's "Very Pretty" Kite

Wow..Riley DID get a pretty kite!  But then...of course such a pretty girl would have a pretty kite!  
Off they go to the park....I bet Riley's kite will fly the highest!!


Here is Riley pictured with her favorite cousin.  Don't they look adorable in their coordinated outfits?  I bet they will have fun with their new kites...
IF they can get them to fly!
