Day 2: Why was I even bothering to dress them before?

This is the second day of letting the girls run amuck in their closet and pick whatever they want to wear, and I think they assembled some kick-butt outfits! Much more interesting than I would have chosen, and the outfits really show their personalities. Ree went first, and chose a Pumpkin Patch shirt that she liked and then spent quite a bit of time flipping through the racks of clothes to find a long-sleeved undershirt with "some boo" (some blue) from Old Navy and a skirt and tights that had the gray she wanted to go with the shirt. Then she ran downstairs to play and Ro danced into the closet. Ro gravitated immediately toward a brand-new ruffly pink Gymboree skirt then tried and rejected a few tops. She finally chose a little Old Navy flowered long-john top and pink striped tights. I have to admit to cringing while Ro was picking the shirts, but once she got the outfit on I actually loved the contrast of the fancy pink skirt and the sporty long-john shirt. Cute. Once downstairs the girls grabbed some shoes that made us all smile and jauntily posed for a pic or two. Day 2 of the fashion experiment Day 2 Day 2 Hey this is kinda fun! The girls are having a ball, and I think it might turn out to be just the ticket for this control-freak mama. I'm feeling amused and sort of relaxed right now... Ahhhhh. Wonder what they'll pick out tomorrow?

  3. Maybe you should video their choices and start a youtube sensation of Ro and Ree's recommendations.

  4. I love Ro giving a smooch to the photographer in pic #1, and giggling so hard behind her hands in pic #3. Very cute outfits--they've got some fashion sense!

  7. Curious to know if whoever picks second knows what the sister before picked. It's interesting to note how similar the girls are actually dressed on both days.

  8. Hi Miss Ashley: Good question! Ree picked first on Day 1, and I can't remember where Ro was at the time but I don't think she saw Ree's outfit before making her own choice. For Day 2 they were in separate rooms and couldn't see each other's outfits. It's kind of funny that they wore the same jacket on Day 1 and both picked skirts and tights on Day 2. I'll pay better attention for the next few days, because it is interesting.

  11. I did this with Maggie a month ago or so and some of her choices were SO funny. We have run out of winter clothes to work with so I'm just waiting for warm weather!

  15. I love it! I learned a long time ago that I need to let go. My new mantra is "If it won't kill or hurt, who cares." That said, Erin has gone out wearing the craziest outfits but happy as a clam. I think your girls are totally adorable in their chosen outfits.

  21. What a great idea, and I love the outfits, so adorable. And the hair styles are too cute. Shayna is really into pink right now and I only have a few shirts that fit her. I better get shopping!

  22. Too cute. My little Sierra has that same Old Navy longjohn top, and she just loves it. Super comfy, though after awhile, the neck stretches so wide it could very well accommodate a watermelon.

  23. I think they have done extremely well with their clothing selections. They're only three years old and already know how to coordinate outfits. Look out, TubaDad! The wardrobes for two stylin' teens equal big ticket items in your future budget. Darling little girls!

  27. I love how their personalities are coming out in their choices. They are so CUTE! I believe that with all there is to do in a day with twins, giving up their fashion choices is an easy decision! ;)
