A lot of the time, I seriously do not care what Ginger wears. She’ll wear whatever my mom has gifted her, and a few things I’ve picked up, and that will be that. But every now and then I start to think about it, and I start caring more about what she puts on-or what I put on her. I know it’s seriously like a matter of months before she starts fighting me over EVERYTHING she puts on her tiny precious body, and I want to get my two cents in while I still can. Is that horrible? Ha. It’s just they’re only tiny for so long, and it’s fun to doll her up. Ugh she’s so cute and SO moody.
Lately I’ve been trying to dress her in stuff that I love, and she’s mostly a good sport about it. So here’s a little Gigi fashion show with some of my latest favorites for that very sassy girl.
I got this little shirt for her from Zara on CRAZY sale, it’s not available anymore, but I seriously love it so much. I picked up her little boots at Old Navy and it took a solid 10 minutes of “discussion” in the store before she’d even try them on. She has a very hard time buying new shoes.
I made this little shirt for Gigi a few weeks ago and I have her wear it twice a week. I had the body fabric on hand, and the sleeves were made from a shirt I’ve been hoarding from the thrift store for like a year. I didn’t finish the seams and it’s pretty rough, but I think it’s SO cute on her!
I also really love vintage items and recently was gifted the MOST AMAZING goodies from Peppermint & Coacoa on Etsy. I adore the shop owner’s taste this pinafore is no exception. In my opinion there’s nothing sweeter than a little girl in a frock!
And then there are the overalls. Recently I did a little ditty for Osh Kosh at Kohl’s on Instagram, I made the whole family dance…did you see it? I LOVED putting the kids in overalls. I actually used some of the tips I wrote for this styling overalls post. Ha!
I really wanted Gigi to have a belt to wear, and I just couldn’t find one. So I made this belt by braiding some knit (jersey like a t-shirt) fabric I had on hand. I secured each end with some of Gigi’s mini hair rubber bands. But I think it looked so cute!
Then of course we can’t forget about my men.
And that concludes this session of our first ever Gigi Fashion Show!

Gigi is turning 3 on September 17th and you know I’m already getting crazy about the party. But I swear I’m not going overboard…no, seriously, I’m scaling back this year. No really, I mean it.
Have a great weekend!
