A BIG shout out to all you parents our there with happy children that happily wear whatever you lay out for them in the morning

and the BIG shout out is...

no freaking fair!

Playing dress up with mini-humans was my Reason #386 for having children in the first place and now I get tantrums and tears anytime I suggest a shirt that's remotely flowy or God forbid floral.

Of course zara.com didn't start offering Canadian shipping until I publicly announced my shopping hiatus a few weeks back. Cutting out purchases has been a hard habit/hobby to break, but - truth be told - I'm already feeling both lighter and enlightened because of it. I found myself caring and spending WAY too much on things that didn't even matter and then a little unplugged vacation in a developing country put things into perspective and I'm left trying to figure out what this all means for myself and my family.

I'm also trying to figure out the balance between Saige's personal style and my own preschooler fashion sense. With Miss Muffet growing way tall, way fast, a new spring wardrobe is definitely on the agenda. Many of these items can be found in the "wee man" sections of Zara and Gap which appeals not only to my anti-girl, but also means sister hand-me-downs for my baby boy... win-win-winner! 

1. sandals // 2. denim shirt // 3. bowling bag // 4. fedora // 5. dotted shorties // 6. harem pants


That poor fedora has no clue what's in store for him/her... Saige loves hats like Gabe loves cats = #borderlineobsessive.

That stuff is all so cute. Saige may not wear dresses, but she always looks adorable. I dread the day my daughters refuse to wear what I pick out. They like dresses, and my mom likes to sew. C and V's new spring/summer wardrobe is a bunch of cute dresses my mom is making, which cost all of $5 or $6 each, when it's all said and done. I wonder if they'll still be happy in homemade dresses, when they are teenagers?

Good thing I'm preggos.. I get super practical when I'm pregnant and never buy a thing so this news about Zara hasn't fazed me... yet.. ;)

Love all of your finds though..

She may be anti-pink/ruffles/skirts but just think - she could be demanding nothing but cheesy licensed character covered cr@p! That's my biggest fear with my two-year old and her future fashion demands. But I love all the things you found above, such a cute wardrobe!

I think what you're doing is great! All of it. It's amazing how much of a challenge it can be not to spend money, but so worth it. Love the clothes for Saige as well.

Haha, Fedora the Explorer... nice. Love the clothes! My oldest is getting picky and refuses to wear anything that isn't "his style". His style is Element and Quicksilver... and I see a very expensive future. :0

I love little Saige's tom boy style, she seriously pulls it off like no other. I wanna see more Saige style posts but with her and her sassy attitude!

Super cute finds! I wish my daughter would just let me play dress up with her, but she is super picky. That little bikini and hat....adorable!

Love the finds! I feel your pain. I need to go shopping with Belle and can only hope that we find a middle ground between her flashy/trashy legging obsession and what I consider cutie patoutie. Good thinking with the hand-me-downs!

Those clothes are so cute, my ass may have kids just to dress him/her up.

And the spending hiatus, I'm doing the same this month & HOLY liberation. It really does make you feel lighter!

Adorable! In terms of the freedom of clothing choice issue - my solution was to buy one of those fabric shelves that hangs in the closets with several sections. I put outfits together in each section, but then when my girls wake up they get to choose which outfit they want to wear that day. (I know - I'm still keeping too much control, but I'm working on it, and they're not complaining...yet!)

Is that nautical bag specifically supposed to be for a child? Because I want it, and I want it NOW! (for me)
