The Girl is going through some serious changes. Her face is totally changed already from her new orthodontic appliance and now it’s her voice! I know she’s still healing, but that sweet little nasally voice that was just so Her seems deeper and clearer than ever. It’s been a big summer for my little girl.
Her look just seemed to sum up so perfectly this strange place she is now-in between baby girl and grown up. She still got the tell-tale dress hem of her former, I-never-wear-pants-even-in-the-mud self, but she’s paired it with sneakers. SNEAKERS? This is the girl who wore sparkly pink Mary Jane’s to Kindergarten PE class instead of the black Mary Jane’s because the pinks “had a rubber sole” so she deemed them her exercise shoes. The best part of this new look though is the socks. They are super-girly with their lace edges but instead of leaving them the folded over dress socks they’re meant to be, she has pulled them up so they become sporty instead. In doing this she has achieved the look that is quintessentially F. They are just a little awkward yet they get the job done. There is still a hint flash, but she got ’em on fast enough to get out and play making them practical. That’s my girl-no matter her changes she is practical and dependable and manages to maintain just enough flash. Man, I love her more and more every day.
