Elle's Favorite Apron :: DayLu Designs Product Review + Coupon + Giveaway

Today is Elle West's birthday!!! Four. Years. Old. How the heck did this happen?! So, kinda like Evley Love's one year pics, I've been sitting on these gems for awhile. But I figured that today would be the perfect day to share them as a way to celebrate Elle's birthday!

Elle West loooves to help in the kitchen. She loves to pretend to cook pretty much anywhere (she makes lots to eat in the sandbox ;)), but her favorite is getting after it with real food in the kitchen.

I'm actually not the greatest Mom at encouraging this. Watching kids crack eggs makes me cringe, and having a chair scooched up against the counter drives me batty. In my defense, we have a really small space to work with in the kitchen. And yeah, well, the rest is just me ;P

BUT!! I get over it for Elle West because she loves it! And maybe one of these days she'll kick ME out of the kitchen, which would be a dream!!

These pics are from Evley's birthday in July. It was a big deal that Elle West made the birthday cupcakes for everyone. She did it from start to finish and it truly blows me away how capable she is.

When we received this gorgeous apron from DayLu Designs she just wore it around the house until I gave her reason to wear it in the kitchen. It is SO pretty, and you know how we feel about PRETTY things!!
DayLu Designs is a Mother-Daughter team who makes aprons for everyone- Mama, Daddy, Babes, plus specialty aprons like their Vendor & Studio aprons. These are made to use while also being stylish. I am absolutely astounded by their quality craftsmanship. When you see the prices that go with them, you might think it's too good to be true.

My pics are a bit more about Elle, and a little less about the apron. So I'm afraid that my "product" photos for this review don't do the apron justice. There are two pockets in the front that Elle loves to store her hands in as she's running around the yard (yes, the yard. Remember the sand baked goods I mentioned!). The apron also features two buttons for an adjustable neck strap. This ensures that we'll get to use the apron for a long time- often times children's aprons become too small on account of that neck strap...not a problem here.

And I've already mentioned how pretty it is!! Gah! It's practically an adorable outfit on it's own! the bow in the back just seals the deal for me, it's gorgeous!!
