These two outfits were inspired by my daughter. I woke up on Sunday to find her dressed all in dots! She had picked out her own outfit and put it on herself. She had on a red polka dot dress with matching red polka dot headband and blue polka dot leggings. She even wore polka dot socks! So cute! So I decided to match her matchy matchy outfit and go with a polka dot theme too, with polka dot shirt, polka dot skirt, polka dot bracelet, polka dot necklace, and typewriter bag with polka dot keys (and polka dot socks and polka dot iPhone too). I was on call and working that weekend. It was so busy that these pics were taken when I got back home right before their bath and bedtime. The pics accurately reflect the chaos and rapid swirl of emotions that is my life with young kids. First DD is "typing" on my bag. Then DS1 is simultaneously bugging DS2 and trying to grab the stuffed llama from DD. Then they're hugging sweetly. Then DD is smiling because she's in the middle, then suddenly pouty because DS1 wanted to be in the middle. And DS2 is chewing on my stethoscope (fortunately I had cleaned it before he grabbed it out of my purse!)
She liked the outfit so much she wore it again the next day for school. That morning she said, "Mommy, you have to wear a headband that matches your dress, like me." So I took up her challenge and wore a chevron skirt with chevron headband, chevron bracelet and pointy black shoes. (I couldn't decide between Ms. Scarlet and the typewriter bag). So fun that I was inspired by my DD and that she has inherited the hypermatchy gene from me! I don't think I was ever that coordinated as a kid!
