My Fashionista In Training!

If you know anything about me you would know I would live in sweat pants if I could and dragging a brush through my hair needs some serious incentives. Luckily I have enough swanky events in my calendar to make sure that I do get dressed up. Thanks to my kind friend Audrey I have a plethora of Lucky Magazines which somehow my newly minted 6 year old has taken a fancy to.  She spends a long time staring at the pages trying to absorb what is fashionable or not. It has become a little frustrating on a daily basis to try and get her to wear our choice of clothing, which is normally driven by the weather and practicality, while her choice is on “style”. In fact when I shared to a close friend about the fashion magazines and my daughter she laughed saying that did not sound like my girl and she was right.

Do you see those shoes in the picture? You’re probably wondering that that does not match her outfit? You would be right and she was pretty unhappy at our insistence that she wear the practical shoes. With her having SPD (sensory processing disorder) her balance and motor skills always make us to choose the “safe” shoes. Since our days are spent on therapies and on her special needs we somehow forgot that she was a little girl. To see her newly found interest is funny and refreshing and admittedly a little assuring too. I think from here on we will just let this beauty bloom!
