Trendtotting: Little MissMatched

About halfway through each Winter, my daughter (and sometimes I) loses one glove from her set. It is around this time that the stores have moved into Spring clothes and nary a glove is available for purchase, so we become creative in how we cover her hands on cold days.

It seems that I am not the only mother who faces this issue, as I recently came across a fun little company called Little MissMatched that caters to us. Launched four years ago, the company sells gloves - and socks - in mismatched, but coordinating, packs of three. Designed to encourage creativity among girls of all ages, the packages are great for lil ones (and their moms) who misplace gloves on the playground or socks at gymnastics class. With adorable designs that can be mixed and matched, you can guarantee that a few sets of these creations will be making their way into my tot's Winter wardrobe.

I've seen these in stores and I'd want some, but I don't do too well with socks in that usually after I launder them, they really shrink which means that's money down the drain that I spent on socks. :(

We actually have these! Evie and Gen misplace EVERYTHING and this way our mismatches are coordinated. I did have to get over my OCD-like tendencies and accept the fact that they match, but they don't.

But then you still misplace one or two and end up with one that matches nothing. *lol* I can't do mismatched either, it makes me twitch. Although I do love the pink and orange socks.

Oh I absolutely love those pink and orange socks!! (I'm a sock fanatic :) ) But I'd have to buy two sets of the "3 mismatched items" so that I could have proper pairs. There is no way I could wear mismatched stuff! I usually try to make sure my "underthings" are the same color as my clothing! lol
