disclaimer: again, today i cheated a little bit. we went to Ash Wednesday mass and i did not in fact, waltz into church wearing the following outfit. however, i fully intend on wearing it to Family Night at Gemma's toddler group this evening. i'm anticipating the gawkers already. aye yi yi.
today...i learned that it's probably high time i got rid of some of the pink tutu skirts i have in my closet. i have to say i do love this one, and Gemma styled it in a way that i couldn't possibly have dreamed up on my own. a little Mickey, a little leopard (the scarf--it's kind of hard to see in these photos), some thigh-high socks and pink rainboots. G Money was on a mission this morning. she knew exactly what she wanted. she handed me the sweater and skirt without hesitation. i saw her eyeing my scarves, so i asked her, "want Mommy to wear a scarf today?" and she replied, "yes dat cheetah one." she was momentarily hung up on some lace-top thigh-high stockings (college Halloween, you know), but i shut that one down immediately to avoid looking like a lady of the night. i offered up these substitute thigh-highs, and she conceded. i looked at myself in the mirror and laughed. Gemma laughed too. i think she was quite pleased with her choices.
she really really REALLY likes it when i jump.
final thoughts: i look a bit like a Harajuku girl, yes?
