Once Amelia outgrew the infant clothing and moved into toddler sizes, I realized I became incredibly frustrated when shopping for her. I have a specific style and look that I like, and most stores just aren't supplying the items I want. For instance, I went into Macy's about 6 months ago in hopes of finding Amelia a nice dress. The entire section was filled with rhinestones, skulls, neon, and nothing that she could wear to church or to a birthday party. Now I'm not saying rhinestones shouldn't be worn! I'm just saying I don't want my daughter in that sort of thing daily. I have been a little happier this Fall with what's out. When I'm not buying her clothes online I usually shop at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Gap, Old Navy Target and H&M. Another thing I've noticed when shopping for clothes for Amelia... they don't sell skirts past the knee. Everything is made to hit mid-thigh and I've really been wanting to put her in longer skirts this winter. I decided to take matters into my own hands and make her a skirt (I couldn't even find a pattern for a longer skirt, so I just altered it myself). Here is the outfit below.
