Katie is in a "I'm going to pick out my own outfit" phase. I am past the point of interfering with the kids' clothing choices anymore. I used to be much more controlling about the whole thing but now, as long as it's weather appropriate and we're not going to a function, I let them exercise their budding fashion sense. Maybe I'm wrong in calling it fashion sense because clearly the above outfit makes very little sense whatsoever.
The black tunic is actually an outgrown jumper and if you look carefully, she's paired it with a polka dotted shirt. Hey, who says you can't pull off stripes and polka dots in one outfit? The clincher for me though is the multitude of bows. I suppose if one bow is pretty than a dozen must be spectacular.
I told her I wanted to take a picture of her amazing outfit because I wanted to show everyone how beautiful she looked. But really I want to torture her with this picture down the road when she's a teenager.
Don't you love the pose too? Oh, this kid kills me. :)
