Ok, THESE are my fave Ro and Ree outfits ever

Yeah, yeah, I say that all the time, but the outfits Ro and Ree put together today just made me grin. The colors, the spunk, the outrageousness. Kiddo perfection.

First, they wanted curly hair again. So I took the fabulous Ninotchka’s suggestion and spritzed their hair and then wrapped it around strips of paper towel tied in knots.

Oh my gosh, I am a paper-towel-curler convert. After about a half an hour of playtime in the warm sun, the girls had bouncy, movie-star hair that thrilled them to pieces:DSC_2378LRDSC_2386LRDSC_2397LRDSC_2407LR

Anyhow, the outfits... The outfits were hilarious. As were their poses. I took a plain, boring standing-up pic against the wall, and they scoffed and directed me to the low wall in the front yard. I told them the sun was directly behind them and the pictures wouldn’t turn out and blah, blah, blah. “Just take the picture, mama,” I was instructed, “and then you can put it on the blog.” Heh. Dang littles were 100% right again. I put the camera on manual and tried to adjust it so their faces wouldn’t be blacked out. And, wow. See?DSC_2489LRDSC_2496LRDSC_2536LR

Ree is wearing a WelaWear dress from last year. It’s too short now, so she wears it as a long shirt. She paired it with a ruffly red tulle skirt, and bright blue socks and sneakers (new from Payless, they’re having their BYGO sale thru Feb 15). Ro chose a fun red tie-dyed tee from Children’s Place, put a long-sleeved yellow tee under it for some pop, and grabbed a tiered skirt I found at GoodWill last week. Oh and she has the new soft flats she got at Payless. Notice that Ro’s shirt is tucked in and she is sockless – if you see either of these two clues in a picture, you’re usually looking at Ro.

Little cuties. You see why I don’t even bother to try dressing them anymore? Everything I pick is just... flat somehow. Anyhow, these images are going into the new blog header for sure. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

    They look so grown up all of a sudden! Love their fashion choices and love that you let them experiment like that! It will be interesting to see how they will dress as teenagers :-)

    I cannot believe how much they have grown! I haven't been able to keep up much for the last couple months, since we were traveling to China for our own lovely Little Miss Chloe, so when I tuned in at last tonight, I was amazed at their new look! They are almost young ladies! Beautiful!

    It seems they have grown so fast, i can only hope it is SLOWER for us and Chloe! Thanks for sharing your beautiful daughters!

    My mom used rags to curl my hair after a hair wash it was very kinky for a while but having ultra fine very straight hair the curls and kinks didn't last long!
