Everything that Pearl is wearing in today's "fashion" post (with the exception of the baby tennis shoes) was purchased specifically for her.
Onesie: Child of Mine (thrifted for $0.50)
Jeans: Koala Kids (thrifted for $1.00)
Socks: Walmart (pack of ten for $6.00)
Shoes: Old Navy (hand-me-down)
I feel like I have to point that out because, as you can see, the stripes on the onesie are primary colors.
Not pinks or purples.
Not (here I go again!) girly enough ...
Even though the jeans are a bit ruffly!
I guess I keep coming back to this because, I just don't buy into the "girls need to wear pink (and boys need to wear blue)" mentality that many of the people I encounter each day seem to have. I have never been much of a "girly girl," myself, so I am perfectly comfortable in letting my daughter just be.
I honestly don't care if strangers I meet at the store don't know if she is a "he" or a "she" based solely on her clothing.
She is little.
She doesn't need to worry about gender just yet.
That day will come.
(And, oh, my God ... I'm not even a little bit excited for that day to come!)
But, for now, cute is cute ... Regardless of the color of the wardrobe!
