Rumi’s Retro Inspired Knits & Prints

Today, it’s too cold to do anything outdoors, and since we are stuck inside, I thought, “Why not make it a fun day and play dress up – what 4-year-old doesn’t love that”? Even though she has the sniffles today, Rumi was up for getting dolled up. I like to mix and match prints, colors, fabrics and textures. I pulled from her closet a lamb print purple knit sweater, a black/white tweed skirt, navy blue tights, gold sequined ballet slippers, and a white/gold polka dot headband. Rumi added the final touch herself: a gold beaded necklace she had in her room. The touches of gold are perfect for the holidays.

I curled her hair to give the look a retro vibe, and added some organic cream blush to her cheeks. I look forward to her seeing these pictures when she’s older.
