Styling with a pink housecoat

Talia recently discovered a gift that was given to her when she was just a baby - a pink housecoat. Now normally, she should have grown out of this coat long before now but Talia is a slight kid who so far is pretty small. The housecoat is Carter's (so naturally its built bigger) 0-9 months size.

One night after her bath, we put it on her just to see if it would fit. It still did, so we left it on her. Now every night she sees it, she wants it on. In fact, S left it on her a couple of nights ago when she went to bed. She was still wearing it the next morning.

Here we have Talia rocking her housecoat with a shrug purse from the Found in and Removed from Mommy's Dresser collection. Talia uses her little red purse to carry the toddler essentials, small plastic farm animals, blocks and the like. She often elegantly carries it around her neck as to keep her hands free for reaching for things off of high shelves designed to keep her searching fingers at bay. Talia scoffs at such measures.

In this fun photo, Talia shows off her oh so chic straw sippy cup by Nuby. Its an excellent accessory to her pink PJs and house coat. Its BPA free and so hip.

Talia demonstrates just how much freedom one has with this housecoat. A toddler can continue with any mayhem and foolishness they desire while still maintaining a fashionable and stylish look. Here she pushes around the laundry basket, sans les vetements but containing toys. How 2008!

Apparently, someone forgot to tell Talia that we are going to Toulouse not Ireland as she dances a little jig.

After a long day of raising cain, Talia takes a chillackzing rest on the floor. Its tough being a toddler, no? The author thinks perhaps she should try being a mommy and see how she likes them apples.
