The Not So Many Styles of Olivia

Olivia has a closet full of clothes that she won't wear. Every day she wears Capri leggings and a short sleeved shirt. I started a sticker chart as an incentive for her to branch out and wear something new. Yeah. . .not as easy as it sounds.

According to Olivia:

Pants cannot be loose at all. Leggings or jeggings only. No jeans or shorts or skirts or sweats.

Prefers capris, but if they are long leggings they must be worn with socks. They can't touch her bare ankles. And not just any socks! No bumps on the toes. Must be seamless socks which are hard to find!

Shirts must be smooth, nothing like silly zebras in tutus or cats in sequined glasses.

Sleeves cannot be long or sleeveless. Winter is always fun.
Shirts cannot be too long as they must not touch her ankles when she sits on her knees.

No dresses, obviously.

So when you see my daughter in the same things over and over again, don't judge. It is harder than you think to dress this girl!! Thank goodness for Old Navy's pajamas. They are all she wears to bed!

And, you know, you can make it a game. Next time you go shopping, look at each outfit and ask yourself, "Is this Olivia approved?" Chances are, if it doesn't look like this, it is not.

I guess I should mention, no one criticized her clothes or anything like that. Don't worry. :-) I just get frustrated about all the unworn clothes. Good thing there is Abigail, right? And at least after 6 years I have figured her out.

Have you ever thought that maybe Olivia has Asperger's Syndrome?
