What She Wore Today

Actually, this was yesterday. It's been so long since I have blogged with being out of town for my grandma's funeral. I thought I should check in. I also thought, I have a fashion design degree, but I don't blog nearly enough about clothes. So, here's a little something.


I am loving having a daughter to dress, and I am trying to get it all in now, because I know soon enough she will have her own opinions about what to wear. Yesterday, she went about her day in black skinny jeans, a Ralph Lauren striped dress and a Baby Gap black cropped sweater. Now, before you think I spend a ton of money on brand names for my little one, let me assure you...no way! The dress was bought at Marshalls, and it was a gift from Grandma. I just love it though. Those ruffles are too precious, but it still has a casual almost punk feel from the fabric and color combo. And the sweater I bought at Once Upon a Child which is a resale shop where I buy pretty much all of my kids' clothes. Nothing I buy is over $10. :-)


And of course, her Mommy made boots finish the outfit. What am I going to do next year when I have to buy her shoes with hard soles? I really need to figure out how to do that myself.

And you know what I said about her having her own opinions about her dress soon? This is how she insisted she spend the rest of the day.


I know it's fuzzy, she's constantly in motion. Perhaps one of these days I will post something about my fashion choices.
