Tell Mommy: Does Your Tot Have Her Own Personal Style?

Suri Cruise may be a number one tot, but she doesn't wear the pants in the family. Tom Cruise recently revealed that his little star only wants to sport dresses, and refuses to put on pants. It may seem like Suri gets what she wants, but any mommy who's given up on getting her three-year-old to wear something other than her princess costume understands that some battles aren't worth waging.

In fact, a friend of mine has been struggling with her own two-year-old's refusal to wear shoes other than her pink tie-dyed crocs. She fears the day it snows and she has to force her daughter to change footwear.

Does your toddler display her personal style? Or does she refuse to wear certain items of clothing?

Oh my boys also only have one pair of shoes so that's never been a problem. They wear them until they need ones, we just have never gotten a variety of shoes. My daughter, well, I have a feeling my shoe obsession will resurface once she's walking. *lol* I hope she likes pink tie-dyed Crocs though.

My daughter loves dresses, skirts and ballet slipper shoes. My son prefers to be naked.

We go through Spurts - where it is dresses only or hair in ponytails, but I can usually sway her if need be.

My younger son, yes. He's very stubborn about what he will and won't wear. He does take direction like "You need shorts and a short-sleeved shirt, it's hot" but he has to pick out which ones. When he was about two, for months he'd only wear orange because it was his favorite color. Luckily he looked good in orange. ;) I kinda hope my daughter will only wear dresses and bows.

My daughter only wants puffy I thought leggings would suffice for tights, but NO, I couldn't fool her. She told me that those were pants and she wanted tights. Then of course she had to wear her cowboy boots with it...she wouldn't put a shirt on underneath her sleeveless dress and she's driving her daddy nuts! Yesterday was the puffy purple dress that was a hand me down from my cousin with tights and her cowboy boots. She'll only wear her raincoat too. She will put on a sweatshirt to wear throughout the day, but for a coat, no peacoat will do, no, she needs her shiny raincoat.
