I think I have mentioned before that I'm not much of a girly-girl. My biggest pre-requisite for an outfit is that it doesn't make me itch. In fact, I was going out today with my mom, and she made me wear one of her jackets because she didn't like the hoodie I donned this morning (I believe "bag lady" was somewhere in her description of my very comfortable outfit). Dressing up is not high on my list of priorities.

Imagine my surprise at having such girly-girls for daughters. They love all things pink and floral and rainbowed. Bean is a little flexible in the clothing department (as you can see by the mismatched mittens) ...

... but Cakes is very opinionated about what she will and will not wear. Don't even try to put overalls on that kid!

About once a season, my dear friend over at In the Dailies sends my girls a box of clothes that her daughter has outgrown. Fortunately for me, her daughter is also a very girly-girl and my daughters are typically very pleased with the new selection of clothing. They ooh and aah over the box, declaring things "cute" and insisting on wearing as many new outfits as they can layer on.

There was one outfit in particular that I absolutely loved. I immediately tried to put it on Cakes, but she wanted no parts of it. I'm not sure what she found so distasteful about the outfit, but I finally convinced her to wear it by pairing it with shiny shoes.

I had to preserve this photo for posterity, because who knows if I'll ever be able to get her back into this very cute ensemble?

Oh no! It is SO CUTE! I love it!

Maybe it just wasn't pink enough for her. ??? ;)

Oh should be very interesting when she has to start getting herself dressed for school!
