Bringing back the 80's

>> Sunday, April 18, 2010

My daughter has her own sense of style.  At five she doesn't get dressed so much as assemble an outfit.  I love that she has her own ideas about what looks good and what doesn't.  From which hair band she wants to wear to the color of her socks.  A lot of pink and purple.  Very girly and a must have is accessories.  From the time she was very small she would dig underneath my bathroom sink to collect as many ponytail holders as she could.  Then she would sit on the floor and line them up her arm as bracelets.  Mind you she couldn't even say the word bracelet yet but she knew she liked them. 

This affinity for clothes and style did not come from me.  I am very happy in a t-shirt and jeans.  I wear what is comfortable and clean.  My daughter's love for what she wears is definitely something she was born with. 

Yesterday evening she came running outside in her evening outfit.  A sun dress with a small hoodie, pink flip flops and these purple leg warmers. 

She wanted to play soccer and practice kicking the ball into the goal and in her mind the leg warmers were just the thing to finish her "soccer outfit".  Gotta love it!  Spiral Leg Warmers (free pattern).  Hope you're having a nice Sunday!

My own 5-yr-old daughter would get along really well with yours! Beautiful legwarmers! And I love her dress.

There is nothing wrong with leg warmers. LOVE THEM! Plus they can work as soccer pads as well :)

Hmm, must be something with the age ;) My 5 yr old saw the pics of your daughter and immediately thought the outfit was "cool" and "can you make me a pair of legwarmers like that?" Love our fashionistas!

Love those leg warmers! Your girly looks wonderful in her soccer outfit - she has a great sense of style!

I have the same daughter you have. I was a real tom boy as a girl, and my oldest is the girliest of the girly girls. I love it. My worst fear is that she will one day become her cousin who disdains anything very girly.

The leg warmers look pretty cool.

Leg warmers are great. It is so much fun watching our children each develop their own tastes and personal style too.

My children also seem to have their own sense of style. For the past couple of days they decided to wear a different sock color on each foot. This should make laundry even more interesting

I'm with her on the leg warmers, definitely finish her hip soccer outfit. My daughter was the same at her age - and still is now... she'll be 16 in a month.
