i have officially lost control over belas wardrobe. she insists on picking out her own clothes and on the off chance she lets me dress her, she will put in one thing that throws off the whole outfit. this morning after i dropped her off, as i was walking out the door, i sheepishly added, "she picked out the outfit, not me". i am totally fine with this though, i actually think it is cute as heck. plus i know that if someone sees her in brown pants, a green shirt and silver shoes, they will most likely assume that i had no input. the silver shoes are a big player in her wardrobe these days as well, yes the sacred silver shoes that i searched high and low for. so i am fine with it, love those shoes. even when an outfit that most definitely requires tennis shoes is finished with the silver "party" shoes. bela is for sure a unique and independent spirit, i am all for it.
