ruby may be found guilty of having a uniform and if she was this would be it for the fall. leggings and ankle boots. now while these camo leggings are not “technically” leggings they have a legging like feel, they pull on and they move just like a legging so they are like a legging pant, a pegging, the jegging’s comfy but modern step sister. i kid. however, these “pant-leggings” are a little thicker and warmer, great for older girls or girls not so comfortable letting their booty show in leggings, and they have a snap closure and zipper. AND as far as we are concerned camo is a neutral so these babies go with everything.
the other half of ruby’s uniform would be her ankle boots. she loves a boot and who doesn’t? if you have followed for a while, you know she wore these into the ground. literally, the heel was dissolved into nothingness. when she complained a month ago that her feet hurt after wearing said boots i peeled them off her red feet to find the boots were two sizes smaller then her current size and she had red marks all over her toes where she was cramming those suckers in. i am officially nominating myself in the worst mom category.
her determination has to be admired though to hang on to her favorite boots to the bitter end. miss james would never complain about such a thing. never uttered a word. not when she had grown them by one size, not when she struggled to shove her heel in and not when the yard duty told her they were “inappropriate for soccer”. no complaints. thats how she is. i banished the boots and as a result she was left a little frustrated in the mornings. we searched online and as soon as she saw these she wanted them and i can’t blame her. all those ankle straps? yes please.
so her loud clickity clacking is back in the house. her uniform has come full circle and she is happy again. leggings, ankle boots and this cardigan that says “I’ll be in my teepee” which cracks her up.
