Stella Style

Stella has her own "thing" going on lately. 



Not too long ago Stella went to school wearing a brown and orange flowered shirt paired with red tights with apples on them, and running shoes.

The end.

No shorts, skirt, dress, or pants of any form or fashion. Tights, that's it folks.

Evidence:



I know you are probably fearful of the future of Stella's clothing choices if we're already making pants optional, but I promise to view proper attire as a war worth fighting as soon as she stops proclaiming that she has a little "gina"* and Mommy has a BIG "gina." *

("Gina" is pronounced jI-na in this disturbing instance.)

I just can't fight her these days on clothes when she is attempting to sneak Benedryll topical lotion to her room to rub over her entire body.  (Sounds like an exaggeration, but it's really not.  I'm just grateful I discovered her before she applied the lotion to her "gina.")

Further evidence of what I am up against in the clothing selections:



I have never understood the expression "terrible twos" for my children.  Granted Stella is technically two for another month, but the worst of the tantrums and defiance always starts and perseveres well through age three for my offspring. 

Stella is no exception.  The closer she gets to three, the more challenging things are around here.

We have tantrums over anything and everything she is allowed to do or not do.

I don't feel she's doing this more than the boys did, or more often than "normal" (whatever that is) but it is really cramping my style lately.

Stella's style on the other hand....


No sign of cramping in the near future.

confession: I too wear tights without any other over type clothing. I wear them as jammies and then I put on a pair of clogs and a necklace and call it daywear. Today it went perfectly with the Cherry Cobbler we drove a hundred miles to get just cuz we can and it's so damn good you would too.

She is so cute! I cannot get over how big she is getting. Trinity has that same sense of style, and has since she was Stella's age, so expect it to last for the foreseeable future.

That last picture is the best!

Babe has a very similar style. Are you on instagram? That's my favorite place to post Babe's awesome style choices. Like last week when she had on Buzz Lightyear Wings, big heavy duty headphones, and roller skates. I love little girls!

Nothing wrong with wearing tights if you have the figure for them and your little cutie sure does.....they wouldn't look that good on a short fat woman..............lol
