Lisa Leonard Designs

four year old fashion expert…

i am REALLY into dresses and jeans right now. it’s basically my daily uniform. comfortable, easy, i love it! so a week ago, i got ready and came out with just a dress on. matty yelled, “MOMMY, go put some pants on!!” I had to explain that some women actually wear dresses without jeans underneath.

Then this morning I came out with this black knit dress and silver belt over jeans. “MOMMY! That belt is too BIG and it’s too HIGH and you are supposed to wear it UNDER your shirt, not over!”. He is seriously questioning my fashion sense. But then, he thinks accessorizing is a superman cape and fireman hat with thomas the tank engine slippers. i guess i’m not too worried…

    Oh Matty–you are too much. Who knows though, some of the best fashion designers are men.

    Haha! Someday he’ll start thinking outside the box fashion-wise and you’ll be scratching your head!

    Oh that is so funny! I love that he even cares. Too cute! I also love that look but don’t have the right dresses to wear over my jeans. I need to look for some :)

    How do boys know these things? When I was trying on a dress for a Christmas party Zak wrinkled up his nose and told me that it was “too patterny” – and he was right! I’v since stopped taking him clothing shopping …

    How Cute! My sons say “mom, your not wearing jeans are you? Wear a dress, I want you to look like a princess”. They are so much fun at this age!

    your outfit looks very cute! My Ethan {3} likes to pick out his own clothes…last summer he wore his rain boots almost everyday – no matter what the weather was. He has yet to comment on my clothes…but i bet it is coming. Matty sounds like a funny kid!
