Fashion Police

The correct answer about what was wrong with the outfit posted below depends on who's answering the question.

According to Mackenzie (yes, identity revealed) it was a horrible, mean thing of me to make her wear those shorts with her tennis shoes (even though she had PE that day). It was absolutely unheard of that she was wearing a collared shirt to school and NOT to the golf course.

According to Me (the mom) the outfit is absolutely fine (but I will concede the shoes would not be my first choice EXCEPT that it was PE that day.) I would also add that if Mackenzie would have dressed herself when I sent her to get dressed that morning instead of NOT getting dressed she could have worn whatever her lovely fashionista self would have pleased.

Somehow Blogger erased the super long and lengthy explanation of our week's fashion crisis, but I will sum it up with this thought: I am beginning to start a stash of medication that will get me through the oh-so-fun-and-just-around-the-corner hormonally-charged puberty that I will be suffering through. And I mean the good stuff, not just midol!

Seriously? She thinks collared shirts are only appropriate on the golf course???

AMEN!!!! You have a long road a head of you my friend!!! And you know what??? It never ends no matter how old they are. The older they get the more expensive their taste gets. Just got back from shopping with Berlynn and it was only True Religion, or Rock Revival or Rock Republic. Good luck.

I LOVE that our school is "Standard Student Attire." I know it has saved me so many fights in the morning because even though Joel is a boy, he is also quite the fashionista!

Asepn & Sierra, but mostly Aspen, have been hitting that nice puberty age. Thomas is about to move out!! I can't believe that I was EVER that moody...LOL!! Man, with 4 girls, I'm in trouble!!

I'm feeling very blessed that of my five girls, I only have one who was a real challenge. Her solution to the clothing problem was to take an extra outfit in her backpack. Of course, she had a sister at the same school who was only too happy to rat on her...especailly when she was "borrowing" clothes without permission. Luckily the twins are very easy to get along with. Since they'll be 15 next month, I'm hoping it lasts.

Oh dear. We've been having power struggles over clothes for a year now and the girl is only FOUR. Sigh. Girls are drama, seriously.

I'm afraid when my girls get old enough to care about fashion. Boys are great!
