I’m In Trouble When Ella’s a Teen

I can (most of the time) count on Ella to be my little fashionista. Yes, she has been into wearing her comfy sweatpants just about every day (that she has in 5 colors) but she does love a good dress that twirls, frilly skirts, and anything that sparkles. Thank goodness I have her to be a girly girl with because Charlotte (who my husband and I have nicknamed Chuck because she is just not a girly girl. Charlie was even too girly for her personality!) is just not frilly!! Like every other month, Ella was really excited when she got to pick this month’s FabKids. “Mommy do you think this dress twirls? If so I want this one.”

A lot of the time, regardless of whether or not an outfit matches, she totally prides herself in it! Her confidance is out of this world and always has been. I am sooooo in trouble when she becomes a teen if she keeps it up! Just the other day she dressed herself and I told her she looked pretty. Her response? “I know, Mommy. That’s why I chose this outfit. Can you put eyeshadow, blush, lipstick and perfume on me, take my picture and put it on your blog? Thanks.” Oh my! Before I took these pictures she was practicing her poses in the mirror. What five year old does that?!?!

Of course…a dress that twirls! 

Outfit Details:

Dress: c/o FabKids /// Leggings: c/o FabKids /// Shoes: Target (similar)

FabKids has made some pretty cool changes too. You can one of several things, based on what is more convenient for you. After you take your style quiz (based on your child, of course) you can shop outfits that have already been put together for your child based on the quiz, you can shop styles, and build your own outfits if you like, or you can shop wardrobes and buy several outfits at once which takes some stress off of you! I love that they are already put together. I can’t tell you how frustrating picking out an outfit with Ella is. Regardless of whether or not we do it at bed time (to save time in the morning), or in the morning (because I didn’t want to delay bedtime any longer), it is a PROCESS!!! FabKids outfits takes away some of that headache for sure.

Have a great Wednesday, everyone!

    Amen to outfits that are already put together! I do most of my shopping online, and it always helps to buy matching items right then and there rather than trying to find matching pieces later. Here's to shopping for little girls!:)

    lol that's exactly how I was. I refused to wear pants actually and I still prefer dresses and skirts. I also wore brightly colored or patterned stockings and I only wanted shows that clicked. Ella and I can hang.

    Um, yeah. My 7-year old, Laila, is exactly the same way and the mirror admiring is still happening – a lot. She also asks me to take pictures and put her on the blog. She loves clothes as much as I do. I dread the day she won't let me pick out and/or buy her clothes. LOLTracy @Its Mostly About FashionTracy Its Mostly About Fashion
