I’d let Audrey wear this dress every. single. day. if it were in our possession… (image via design is mine)
I have some pretty strong feelings about kid’s clothes. I aim for frumpy over even remotely skimpy or too “grown-up” every single time I buy clothes for the girlies. Perhaps to a fault, as one of my close friends recently (sweetly…I think) told me that I dress the girls like Amish kids… And then this weekend my mom and I were watching Once, and she noted that Marketa Irglova’s character dressed just like Audrey (she spends most of the movie clad in long skirts layered over tights + socks and sweaters + big scarves.)
Surprisingly I was not offended by either comment.
Honestly much of this vagabond chic is a result of me essentially letting Audrey dress herself… She layers clothes with abandon and passionately believes that if two different items are printed with flowers they automatically match.
I do have a few rules, and as the girls get older I’m sure I’ll have a few more (especially since I’ll likely not be purchasing all of their clothes therefore eliminating some of the control I currently have over their sartorial choices), but generally I’m all about self-expression in this area.
