I love handmade, classic looks for my daughter, because I know the time will (soon!) come when she’ll no longer allow me to choose her outfits.
For now, she loves wearing dresses. She actually prefers them to shorts and pants. I’ve been on the lookout for a few new dresses to add to her back-to-school wardrobe and I wanted to share my favorites with you.
What about your toddler? Does she prefer dresses for everyday, and what are your favorite places to find them? Share in the comments!
