The proverbial apple doesn't fall far from the tree, so it should be no surprise that my three-year-old likes playing dress-up as much as her mom does.
Of course, she has her "camping" clothes, which, believe it or not, are her favorites:
Cheesy grin indicative of loving "red camp dress."
At home, she took to wrapping blankets and towels around herself to simulate the "dressing up" experience, so we decided to make a dress-up station for her for Christmas.

The addition of her dresses:
Then we added a basket for accessories (a girl needs accessories, right?), including tutus, animal masks, a pirate hat, and fairy wings.
E loves that she can pick her own "outfit" from the rack--now to work on putting the clothes away between costume changes!
PS--Where to find inexpensive dress-up options? After Halloween sales at discount places like Marshall's or TJ Maxx. I cleaned up! I'd love to sew her more dress-up clothes, but it's hard to find time!
