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?
