this outfit. one look at her with it on and those big brown puppy doug eyes asking "please, mommy?" and I was done for. she was sooooo excited for the first day of school to come so she could wear it. she calls it her "old-school, school girl outfit". too cute.
so far this is the only back to school outfit we've purchased. she added the nerd glasses and is adamant about this being the outfit she's wearing for her fall school pictures too----with the glasses. i say, go for it, sister!
and yes, she totally went to class with the glasses on and was smiling so big i thought she might burst. gosh, i love this kid.
she, on the other hand, is very vocal about what she will wear and won't wear and never gives me the priveledge of picking out her outfits---but that's nothing new, she's always been that way. and gosh, i love her too!
after an afternoon shopping, picking up bits and pieces at a few different stores, she was stoked to realize that nearly everything sparkled or had stars on it and put all together made for quite a cute little outfit. totally unplanned, but totally awesome. jeans with stars? check. sequined tank? check. feather earrings with sparkle stars? check. sparkle start hairtie? check.
then, yesterday, we found the perfect zebra striped shoes that fits her style and wouldn't you know we couldn't have found a better pair of shoes to pull it all together! it's hard to tell from this photo, but the part of the pattern that looks white is actually shimmery silver. and even though they are laceless, she added sparkly turquiose laces to them too.
