In hindsight, I can now see that baby clothes are adorable, even the ones I thought were ugly at the time. Dress my precious newborn boy in duckies? You must be kidding! Put my child in a frilly outfit? What?! I’m embarrassed that I once thought that my little baby needed to have a certain look. Then again, there are plenty of years left to argue about what is appropriate for class picture day, so why shouldn’t mama just have her way?
Here’s the cheeky challenge of the day: Dress up your baby in the worst, ugliest, silliest gift outfit and invite over some other poorly dressed babies for a costume party and ugly-clothing contest. Dorky gifts, ratty hand-me-downs, and hopeless mismatches can finally have their day.
Try not to be offended if your idea of cutest-outfit-ever winds up on one of the other models. Cute is completely in the eye of the beholder here. See also What Not To Wear: Baby Edition.
Take lots of pictures, but be careful who sees them!
