You know how your sweet girl child was so excited about buying that outfit a year ago?
She had the perfect shoes, tights and top to go with it -- 'the perfect outfit' for the holidays.
She wanted to wear the outfit again this year because it was so nice last year.
Then she had that growth spurt.
And now it looks like she's wearing her younger, shorter sister's clothes?
Jacket too short above the waist. The skirt too far above the knees.
Jacket not quite meeting the skirt where it should.
So she put the black tights on to keep warm. Then the boots.
And all it does it makes the outfit look like she borrowed it from a much shorter person.
Or it shrank when it was cleaned. And it's just never, ever going to look good on her again?
And it's a bit sad. But she won't concede that the time for outfit has passed.
Yeah. It's like that.
