Tina sparkle

Is there anything better than being a three-year-old girl? You can walk out of the house in an ensemble of fairy wings, sparkly gum boots and striped leggings and people think you look gorgeous.

For my three-year-old, everything must be sparkly at the moment. I have to say I'm happy to indulge her, cause she's at an age when you can were sequins to the park and people won't bat an eyelid. Plus I can live vicariously through her!

She has a pair of silver sequined ballet flats which she has worn to almost death and they're only three weeks old! So, today we went on a mission to buy her some sneakers – you know something sensible to climb with at the playground. She spotted a pair of sequinned Dunlop Volleys and it was love. Gorgeous? Yes! Sensible? No. But, who was I to deny her? If they had sequined Dunlop Volleys when I was three I would have begged and pleaded too. Another woman in the shop exclaimed: "Oh, if I only I could get away with wearing those!" and I had to agree.

I remember when I was three I desperately wanted a Wonder Woman suit, I vowed that I'd get one when I was old enough. Alas, what happened? The black widow look hit me in my teens, which I teamed with Doc Martin boots. Now, how I wished I had that Wonder Woman suit.

So, this is why Lil-lil will sparkle at the park in her sequins. At least until she hits 14 and decides to trade them in for a pair of cherry 12-hole Doc Martins.


  1. Gorgeous! Don't forget the 3 year old boys that get to swan about town in superheroe outfits making their dads jealous!

    oh to be a kid again....

  2. I enjoyed the "Princess/Fairy" time when my daughter was younger. Spoil her and indulge in all the sparkles!

  3. Isn't it fantastic! Chloe (also 3) does the same - this morning we had black leggings, tutu, wings, handbag, wand , striped top & gumboots - oh I hope they keep this individuality!

  4. ADORABLE! I can't wait until my little girl starts getting into all this stuff. I'm already buying things and putting them away for her.

  5. Nice post. So want to be a kid again!

  6. I'm pretty sure that Girl Child (6) would almost kill for those shoes. Thankfully she wasn't in the room while that pic was up.


Thank you so much for your comments! I'm always thrilled to hear from you.
