Pick 'n' Mix

Dressing for kids.
I just had to get some sparkleyness going on; my niece loves sparkles!
She is depressingly tomboyish in her dressing, but then, so was I at age 11.
We had a great night last night, and as expected, I was in bed quite early!
I had a nice read, a nice sleepy bo, and was glued to my book (the Stieg Larsson one) again this morning whilst the kids thrashed away in the lounge.
They're so easy, feed 'em, power 'em up, and away they go.
Of course, we had a little break to watch Glee, much to the boys dismay.

Ooh I'm loving that blue number on you, looks a bit 50s too!!

Melanie said...

That first outfit is divine the way you've gone minimal with the metallics and blues and that slappy green backdrop. The other two I can only think candy! Your colours are delicious! It's like the flowers on the headband have just spontaneously sprouted out of your head! Sproing! The necklace G gave you is a terrifically precious gem.
