Clothing abuse

Green and white striped t-shirt (Lands' End)
perfect for summer with white shorts or cute in spring and fall with a nice pair of jeans

Green "cake" long-sleeved tee (Gymboree)
fabulously adorable with its matching pink "cake" appliqued skort

Lime green stretch pants (Hanna Andersson)
the height of child fasion with a matching purple, lavender, and lime green dress

Fashion according to Katie (prepare to cringe)...



Katie and I have come to a sort of compromise. I threaten to throw out all her barbies let her pick out her own clothes each day with only appropriate seasonal restrictions (like no shorts when it's too cold) and she tries her hardest to give me heart palpitations...with a smile.

She works very hard to match appropriately and despite lots of tears and pleading gentle advice from me she is convinced that "matching" means wearing varying shades of the same color. My tutorial on picking out accent colors fell on deaf ears today.

I'm probably the biggest fan of the color green in the entire world and even I feel like I need medication to look at this outfit without wincing.

I don't see anything wrong with the outfit.

Love, Daddy.

Love the way that you put this post, very cute! The outfit isn't all that bad! But I know what you mean sometimes their color coordinating just isn't!

With such an adorable smile no one would notice what she's wearing anyway!

At least she is trying to match - some of my children just throw on whatever is on top of the drawer.

She would fit in PERFECTLY in my class!!!

Keep up the good work....

That's Dragon logic. I get out red shorts for him and he goes and puts the black shirt I picked away and gets the shirt in his draw that is THE MOST DIFFERENT shade of red because he wants to match.

I agree with Mum-me, no one would notice what she's wearing while she's wearing that smile!

haha! Well, at least she's a total cutie--she can get away with varying shades of green. :o) Good grief, you should see some of the combos my daughter comes up with. :o)
