Fashion Tips From Mila's Dad

9/08/2011





Matt was so excited to contribute some fashion advice to our Short and Sweet readers. Today's feature is on babies...I'm a little afraid to see his remarks on adult clothing.



When I was about 7, to the horror of my Mother, I walked into the kitchen ready for school, wearing some kind of purple cargo shorts with a hot orange t-shirt. (Hey, it was the 80s and these were the first things I found in my drawer).

Anyway, the point is, after sitting through a brief lecture by my Mom about how these clothes didn’t match, and were down-right tasteless, I realized women really/seriously care about this fashion stuff. Plus, I could really annoy them with my terrible choices, even if they were only subtle mismatches.

So, now that I have a daughter of my own, while she’s still young, and her mother isn’t always around, I can practice my experiments in bad-taste. Unfortunately, her overall cuteness (to me), kinda washes away any attempts I make to annoy her mother, but I’ll let you be the judge...

Haha I think my favorite is the half worn fleece pj with the top part wrapped around her waste with the clashing yellow top. Priceless. This is such an adorable post!

Oh my. Don't give up...he just wants you to end up doing it yourself. I know this trick...I use it with the lawn ;)

Bahaha! Chris puts Levi in some ridiculous get-ups as well. BUT that Mila's cuteness completely overshadows those outfits...

You know, though, he's right: her overall cuteness eclipses her outfits. :)
