Fashion Friday

Welcome to the latest and greatest in 2-year-old fashion! Today I'll follow up on last week's fingernail tip, give you an abbreviated swimsuit pose tutorial, and deal specifically with outdoor footwear.

So go post your fashion photos of the week, come back and link up, and then get your sparking grape juice and enjoy the show!

Last week I told you about using markers on fingernails. Well, sometimes those markers wash off too easily, so I always like to follow up with a coat of glue. Apply liberally!
And if you don't like the effect, cover it all up with a coat of fingerpaint. Of course, these tips are dependent upon having such art materials available, so work on your mom to keep the crafts coming.
Moving on to swimsuit poses. Always start with a smile!
Then go on to the serious pose.
Then when you're fed up with posing, stick out the tongue... That'll end the modeling session right quick!
Finally, let's move on to outdoor footwear. Last week I shared my classy sparkly pink "ballerina shoes." Sometimes those aren't handy right by the door, so try on your Pappa's size 13 flops for a quick trip outside...
But what works even better is a Mommy-sized pair of black pumps. Very classy when paired with your Disney Princess nightgown that you insist on wearing in the middle of the day.
They work great for climbing...
...and for standing on the retainer wall.
And they're easy to slip off for a quick trip to the sandpit for an icesand cream cone!

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

Every time I see these I wonder why I am not taking pictures of Owen-because at this ages, the girls do not necessarily have the better fashion sense! :) He could compete.

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your Fashion Friday posts. I wish I had a blog so I could share my 4yo's similar fashion sense.
