Toddlers, What not to wear

I admit it ok! I'm one of those mom's that actually cares about what Mack wears. There are certain items of clothing that are just hideous and I will refuse to let my kid out of the house in. 

Are you nodding your head? You know there has been a couple items of clothing bought for you child that you wouldn't be caught dead with them in it? Right!

Ok, I will be the jerk face to admit it. When it comes to my kids clothes I splurge. I've never once bought a single item of clothing from Walmart. Something about the fabrics give me the willies. Have you seen the article about Walmart flip flops eating their feet? Google it. It's nasty. 

Don't get me wrong I'm not too cool for Walmart, I just don't buy clothing for my kid from there. My favortie places to shop for Mack are: Target, Kohls, Old Navy, and Gap. Oh and online for Roxy. They are too stinking cute. 

I'm OCD when it comes to her matching and looking cute. There have been times where Ian has dressed Mack and I've taken her back to her room and have redone her entire outfit. I guess that's just the mom in me. 

Exhibit B. Cheetah/Animal Print
Clothing I think is just not cute for a kid.

* Spandex --> they will never be and never are cute. Period.
Exibit A. Spandex 
* Animal print --> It really depends, but I avoid it with all costs. Last thing I need is my kid looking like she killed a cheetah. 

Levi jeans and skinny jeans on Mack, they just make my heart melt. Dresses with tights and ugg boots.. just too cute for words. 

I might be crazy, but I just want my kid to look cute all the time.

Closet Makeover

A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to clean out the old closet. I spent some quality and undivided attention to that diaster/ has mat zone for a couple of hours. I didn't want to, but I did. I got rid of things. I actually threw some stuff out and into a donate bin. I haven't done that in a while, and I'm glad i finally was able to let go of some of my items. 

So here it goes.... Before Photos 

and the after photo....

I'm so glad to have gotten this completed. It's not to my complete satisfaction. I want to incorporate more organizing bins and storage, but the first step was clean it out and get rid of some stuff. So, stay tuned for more photos of the closet project. 

Also, I cleaned most of my office/craft/guest room. I'm so bummed I totally forgot to take before and after photos, but I will start the project from the first initial clean. So... stay tuned. 

P.S. I have another surprise post for your today. Included before and after photos. Yippee!
