Funky Fashion: Edition 2

Because Grace is so tiny, she is able to wear a piece of clothing for years. I buy something a size too big and then she can usually wear it for three years. The first year it’s too big, the second year it fits, the third year it’s a bit short. Depending on what item of clothing it is we can usually work with it.

Dresses are a prime example. We buy them when they hit her shins and by year three she can usually still wear them with shorts or pants. As a result we have implemented the “bend-over” rule. If when you bend over and touch your toes, your underwear shows, you need pants or shorts.

It works for us.

Well, towards the end of the summer Grace came up with this gem of an outfit…

Ok, the girl is five. The shorts are 18 months, the pants are 3T.

She came out and said “do you know why I am wearing these pants?”
Me: “Uh, no Sweetie, why?”
Grace: “I am wearing the pants because the shorts were a little bit too short when I bent over.”

    Love it. Owain is super tiny too. He is almost two but wearing 12months-18months. I guess the down side of him being tiny is all of his buddies who are the same age call him a baby.

    Nathan (also 5) just outgrew his 3T’s and 4Ts at the same time – big growth spurt, and now he’s in the extra small boys sizes. He’s so excited to be getting bigger. I think both of my boys have the short genes from my side of the family.

    That is hilarious!!! My son Kyler could wear 12 month pants/shorts when he was 2, but now at 3 1/2, I don’t think he could. That’s so funny though. 🙂
