My two girls love to dress up. They love playing in their costumes, getting their hair done, and trying on my “fancy shoes.” They especially love it when I put makeup on them. It’s something I really love doing with them, too.
As far back as I can remember, Raru has always been interested in fashion. She has been actively picking out what she wears and comes up with the most fascinating outfit combinations. One day she will wear her hair long, put on some skinny jeans and boots, and the next day she will request her hair done in an up-do and have on a fancy dress with tights. She has always had her own sense of style, and at times I question the outfits she chooses for school.
I love that she loves her own style, but at the same time I don’t want her to be looking all crazy at school. Thankfully, we’ve come to several compromises that allow her to participate in choosing her own outfits without us needing to worry if it’s appropriate.
