With little B being my first child, I am guilty of buying
millions one to many outfits for her to wear. I always pick out two outfits every morning and give her the choice/opportunity to decide which outfit she would like to wear that day. I think doing this makes her feel involved in this daily, normal routine and to also give her a little independence. Now my little B has a date every Saturday with her grandparents, so before I could select two outfits for her to choose from that morning, in she strolls holding an outfit she has chosen herself, along with a huge smile on her face. She was clearly very proud of herself, as I was. B is 19 months old, and I think I have a little Gok Wan in training. So without further ado here’s B’s outfit of the day:
Shoes: Not pictured but Converse
B went with a beautiful denim dress with a little white bunny rabbit on the front. The rabbit is fluffy as well as nice and soft, B loves to feel the texture of it and will just stroke the rabbit for ages. The shade of blue that the dress is brings out her cute blue eyes, and it’s very light weight and flows beautifully – perfect for all this humid weather. I really like the little lace detail across the top of the dress, I think it adds a really nice touch but keeps it quite simple too. B opted to go for pink tights, which is unusual as she usually chooses socks – she knows she can pull them off when her feet get a but clammy and then force people to smell them. The tights are from McKays and they are quite thick and woollen, but they feel a nice quality and fit really well on the feet. B doesn’t have shoes on in the pictures but we went with baby pink converse, matching her tights and her little pink bow in her hair. With it being B’s first independent outfit choice, I think she made a rather cute and girly choice. I asked her if she liked her dress and she gave it a little hug (well tried to as she was wearing it) – all in all a successful outfit of the day.
How do your children get involved with daily routines? What are some outfits they put together?
