Mac is my two-year-old daughter, my mini me, and muse. She is our miracle child, proof of God’s grace. Having a daughter is completely different from having a son. She’s like my little guinea pig, and generally, indulges my shenanigans. She loves the camera (most times) HA! I did mention that she is two, didn’t I? It’s funny to see her get excited about dressing up, she always exclaims, “pretty!”. She’s already a shoe fanatic. Whenever we go shoe shopping if I put a pair on her she cries if I put them back on the shelf.
I shop at a number of stores for her and use most of the same principles that I use when shopping for myself. A few of my go to’s are Crazy 8, Children’s Place, Old Navy, Target and Carter’s. All of these stores are economical, have cute stuff, and have a wide selection of styles. I’m honestly not married to any brand and will literally shop anywhere, especially if they have a good sale. Primarily, I’m envisioning what can be worn with the item. If I can’t put together at least three outfits I do not purchase the item. I always buy things that she will be comfortable in. Sure, style is the main factor, but having a cute, yet uncomfortable toddler is a recipe for disaster. Can you say meltdown city!
In today’s post, she is wearing a german mustard marled pullover and boyfriend jeans from Old Navy with silver glitter Toms, and a navy and white striped infinity scarf made by mommy. She is also wearing a navy bow to tie the outfit together. I’m a strong proponent of accessorizing event a toddler outfit. This can be done in a tasteful manner that is age appropriate. The general rule of thumb is to keep it simple. Often times her outfits are simple, but she gets a pop from a bow or headband, or even her shoes.
I hope you have enjoyed meeting Mac, and you will occasionally see more of her in the future. If you have questions, please post those below. And be sure to follow me on social media, the links are in the right-hand corner of this page.
