Fashion Friday

Welcome to the latest and greatest in 2-year-old fashion! Today I'll be sharing some fingernail tips, accessorizing your basic hot pink tshirt, and some basic outdoor wear tips.

So go post your own fashion tips, link up below, and then grab your sparkling grape juice, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show...

Let's start with the fingernails. You absolutely gotta have color on your fingernails. Toes can be covered with shoes, but the fingernails are on display all the time.

So what to do if Mommy doesn't let you near the nail polish? That's where markers come in handy. Permanent works best, but the washable ones do the trick, too.
And what if Mommy doesn't approve of such tactics? Well, that's where the "thumbs up" gesture comes in handy. If she asks what you're up to, just give her the thumbs up, and she'll never see those nails.
Moving on to accessorizing with the hot pink T. First, make sure your cell phone matches the T. Absolute necessity, since you are gonna be on that phone a WHOLE lot.
And head gear? The natural tones of this basket contrast quite nicely with the hot pink.
Last but not least, make sure your popsicle matches, too. Cuz you want your mustache to match, most definitely.
Now, moving on to outdoor wear. Two-toned brown is quite camouflaging and hides dirt - you don't want those horses to see you dirty. If you want to dress it up, just add your sparkly pink "ballerina shoes."

For more exciting outdoor art and play, stick with white. These white pants and lavender polka dot shirt will look excellent with kitty paw prints on them, don't you think?

And a bonus tip - zebra scarves look darling wrapped around your head and tied under your chin.

OK, folks, here's where you get to share the catwalk! Link up your favorite fashion shot(s) of the week...

So cute! This is really a fun post idea. Mine are too big for this now, but I remember this stage, very fondly. Thanks for sharing & for your comment yesterday.

I thought of Esme the other day in Target, when we were buying Joy new shoes! They had sparkly ballet flats for toddlers in several different colors, and remembering how much Esme loves hers I almost picked a pair up for Joy! Her father was already having a heart attack over how much money toddler shoes cost, though, so I heroically restrained myself and stuck with the necessities.

Maybe for a birthday present ;)

Markers as nail polish, why didn't I think of that?

Sorry, but I linked up & didn't read beforehand. Oops.

Esme, darling, you look simply marvelous as usual. The way you put together outfits & charm me w/ the use of fabrics & textiles. Just amazing!
