Dad Dressed Me

There’s this classic image of a baby dressed by dad — non-matching, inside-out, onesies snapped over pants, you get the idea. Lucky for me (and M!) I’ve been delighted by Matt’s outfit choices when it comes to dressing our baby. He puts together things I never would have thought to try, and has a lot of fun doing it.

I love the explanations he gives for the outfits, too. A lot of the time he has some kind of theme behind the outfit. Like, for instance, this:

This one, he said, “She’s ready for an adventure!”

This one “just looked cool.”

And here we have “punky socks”, “80s leggings” and “an awesome hat.”

Now their latest thing is to let M grab a onesie out of the closet, which she does with glee because she loves to grab anything and everything. Matt then picks out her bottoms, lets her grab socks, and fills in the rest. Some days she ends up wearing something ridiculously impractical — she started this morning out in a frilly pink tutu and there’s still snow on the ground — but it’s entirely worth it.

I post a lot of her dad-inspired outfits on Instagram if you want to see more!

      It’s so funny when he lets her pick stuff out! Today she came out wearing a shorts romper which is so not weather appropriate, hah.
