I really don’t get it! Having only been the mother of sons, little girls obsession with changing their outfits multiple times a day is a complete mystery to me. Now I know I am generalizing here but it’s my Blog so I am allowed! Don’t get me wrong, I love clothes as much as the next girl but I do not remember wearing more than one outfit a day as a youngster, unless I was going out or swimming. You also, need to know that all the boys in my life, when little, have been only too happy to dress up when the time was right.
My gorgeous god-daughter, Abi, is a totally different level of fashionista! She loves clothes and at 4 years of age, has a very definite opinion of what she will and won’t wear. Did I mention accessories? That girl knows what she wants! So after having spent a wonderful day with Abi, while her Mum & Dad were at work, I decided to look back over some of her best outfits and the reason she gave for the fashion story! Some are from awhile ago but they are too good to ignore. Some of the photos are taken by her parents and sent to my phone to enjoy. Others I have taken when babysitting!
The first series of photos show Abi’s frilly frou frou stage. If there was a tutu to be found – you should definitely wear it or them! Over your pj’s, your nappy, your mother’s boots or if the occasion was really special – over another few tutu’s!
As Abi grew – it became all about the accessories!
They are pretty she says! Too much? No she says! Abi loves to clash her colours and accessories. Almost but not quite, matching colours and BIG flowers are the go! Any colour big flowers because they are pretty and make you smile she says!
One of Abi’s favourite things to do is costume dress up. Whether its a party, a game or just to read a story – dress ups are a favourite. Life is one great big occasion!
I love this little fashionista with all my heart and if she continues to bring smiles and colour and happiness to the world with her outfits – I can cope! But I don’t think I will be following her beauty tips any time soon…….
