I suppose one of the advantage of having a boy as a first-born is that you can reuse a lot of the clothes for the following children. And of course that leads to be Miss Baby being complimented for being a cute little boy but who cares at 9 months? When you are a "Big Girl of 3" as Miss Strawberry Shortcake likes to put it, I guess it is a bit different. Hello Kitty, Fairy and Princesses are higher on the favorite list than tractors, cars and other trucks. And of course although she isn't pink-mad (yet?), it is more favored than brown or blue.
All of this to say that I had almost chuck Mister Cars old coat in a charity bag before I thought it was probably silly to buy a brand new one just for a question of style/colour. Raising kids is expensive enough! What about trying to make the coat more girly?
The jacket is a plain navy blue one with a red fleece lining.
And today I removed all the plain navy buttons to replace them with red elephants. Like the effect?
I am thinking of maybe adding some applique to the back now.
