Books have always found a welcome home in our house. All our children have loved reading since they were babies - and I am so thankful that they still do! Since summer has brought us much more time at home, we've been implementing quite reading time each day. My son Ben who is 7, is reading 30-40 min a day on his own. And I've been encouraging Maddie who is 4, to pick out 4 books a day and read them on her own. She sometimes puts up a little fight, but more often than not she is happy to do so in the afternoon.

As a small shop owner at Petite Littles, I do love styling little kids outfits. (It seems to come with the territory!) And since we also have quite a little collection of favorite and borrowed books in our home now, I'm very excited to be sharing a new series Outfits and Authors. I'll be highlighting one book and one handmade outfit each week. I can't wait to share some of our favorite book and handmade shops in this process!

The first of the series is GASTON by Kelly Dipucchio. Such a cute little story about a bulldog and a poodle who find their deep love for their own families, despite their appearances. The illustrations in this book are also so sweet and adorable. Maddie and Ellie love looking at all the cute little pups. If you have a puppy-loving little one, you must give this a read.

And the outfit that the book inspired is such a perfect match with all the little doggies on it. Junebug Tennessee makes the cutest pinafores, and I love that they are double sided! Two prints, and you can change them up as you please. (The other side peeking out is a beautiful floral print) The bonnet is by Primrose and Petal, bow from Pali and Paper, bracelet from Coral and Cloud, and knee socks from Petite Littles.
