6 Reasons I Love Dressing a Little Princess

“I’ve always loved the idea of changing myself, wearing costumes and disguises. It takes you back to being a kid, to dressing up.”

-Vincent Cassel

I have to admit, it is fun dressing a little girl.

The options are endless and at this point, she’ll pretty much wear whatever I put on her.

My favourite outfits are her dresses and skirts because – like me in jeans – she spends most of her time in leggings, so it’s nice to dress up once a week or so.

I didn’t intend to buy Maia three new tops, two dresses, two jumpers and a pair of leggings but when your go-to children’s clothes store has a sale and it’s 50% off; you just trust the Universe and plunge in.

So here are six of the many reasons I love dressing a Little Madame Princess. 

  1. PINK VELVET..

This is the first velvet-anything I’ve bought Maia and she happens to love it. She asked to try it on last night and immediately went downstairs to show Grandma and Grandad.

2. PINAFORE DRESSES, BOWS AND PUPPIES

Just everything about this dress. I adore this dress.

3. GATHERED SHIRTS, TARTAN AND MORE BOWS

I almost wish adult chequered shirts came with a little bow at the top.

4. EXPERIMENTING

I’m very keen to let Maia wear whatever she wants to wear. I’m going to make a conscious effort as she gets older not to exert my style preferences onto her or make her wear anything she doesn’t want to just because I like it. *Thankfully, she has zero interest in clothes shopping so yes I did choose this one, but she did say she liked it so, so far so good. I do enjoy experimenting with style and trying out different looks. This one works well with leggings and converses.

5. DRESS SHOPPING

This was a gift from my dear neighbour Riki who always buys the most adorable clothes for Maia from The Little White Company and Mini Boden. She’ll ring me up a week before her birthday “Ange, get on the Boden website and choose something for Maia, I’ve got a 20% off voucher..”.

6. PARTY SHOES, FRILLS AND MORE BOWS

Red is probably my favourite colour to put Maia in. -So a red top with frills and bows for £3.50 was a winner really.
