Toddler OOTD #34 - A proper girly girl
Ah, photographing toddlers... It is always a trouble. One moment they are cheerfully posing for you, the other moment they are frantically jumping up and down for no apparent reason than it is fun. And they pretend they are in a puddle. One moment they are happy and jovial, and the other moment they are screaming and crying because you dared to zip their jacket before going out... Ah, toddlers, they have their moments don't they!
This outfit was just quickly thrown together as my husband and daughter went out to the shops while I stayed behind. Some old, some new, and she insisted on bringing her little handbag (what a little lady!) as well as her doggy called Tinker. Bless. Girl's got her priorities straight!
It is funny isn't it that sometimes kids, no matter what you do, just fall in to the gender roles. My daughter loves bags and boots, and shoes. The best thing she knows when we are out in the town is to go to a shoe shop (she particularly loves Clarks). As soon as we walk in she shouts excitedly "Shooooes!" and runs in to try multiple pairs. We often have to drag her out kicking and screaming, as we just can't afford to buy every single glittery pink pair she lays her eyes on... And handbags - don't get me started on those! She loves them as well, and often walks around with her own little handbag. She loves trying my shoes and my handbags as well. And nail polish. Ah, she loves nail polish as well.

She is a proper girly girl. We have never encouraged this, nor have we discouraged this. She has been allowed to be whatever she likes, play with whatever, dress in whatever she chooses if she expresses a preference. It is just that her preference often is, a dress (dancing dress in her words), pink shoes and a little handbag.
Do you have girly girls, or boyish boys, or are their styles more mixed?
What a little lady with her handbag. She looks lovely, I want that cardy, it looks so comfy x #TT_ThursdayReplyDelete
She is, ha ha, so girly. The cardi does seem very comfy, I wouldn't mind having one either :DDelete
Oh gosh, your daughter is JUST like mine! Today we popped to town, ended up in clarks and then in the toy shop she found handbag after handbag. She loves my nail varnish and as soon as I get mine out her fingers are in the way demanding to be painted too! haha. Lovely outfit, her boots are lovely. Thank you for sharing #TT_ThursdayReplyDelete
Ha ha they do sure sound pretty similar :D I could so imagine that happening to us too :D I haven't painted her nails yet (the hubby would kill me!) but I might give it a go soon, I think she'd love it. Thanks for hosting!Delete
I feel your toddler photography pain. I'm having a particularly hard time taking photos at the moment. She's just too busy to stay still for a photo :) This outfit is so lovely. The cable knit cardi looks so comfy, and those boots!! Oh my!! They are stunning x #funkykidfridayReplyDelete
Yeah it is a real pain. Most of the pictures I get are blurry so will always have to take several. Although I am glad she is such an active and joyful girl, I do sometimes despair, especially when I see other very calm an contented kids :DDelete
I feel you on the photo pain, Clem is a nightmare now. As soon as I get the camera out she either runs away or wants to see what I'm doing.The cardigan looks so comfy, I love cable knit jumpers and cardigans, they always look so warm.x #TT_ThursdayReplyDelete
Ha ha we have so many pictures of her too, where she is just inches away from the lense and you can mostly see just a blurry half a face in the photograph :D All kids seem to do it, either run away or towards the camera, which obviously doesn't make it too easy to get anything!Delete
we have a daily princess girl in our house! To be honest I looove it! It makes her so happy to be glittery and sparkley that to deny her this just so we don't fall into the gender stereotype would feel cruel.ReplyDelete
I love her boots!!! Winter is awesome for boots!
I never wanted to go for the stereotype of pink and glitter. I did always intend to dress her in a girly way, in dresses and stuff, but more preppy. Well, she's got other plans now! :DDelete
Look at those boots! So gorgeous! The whole outfit is just lovely and looks so cosy :) xx #FunkyKidFridayReplyDelete
Thank you, lovely of you to say that :)Delete
