Life Lessons From Tiny Taylor

WARNING: Adorable baby/toddler pictures to follow.

If you didn’t see my first post on fashion tips from Tiny Taylor, quit everything you are doing and go there now. The whole post is just an excuse for me to share a bunch of super-cute photos from my childhood. So is this post.

Tiny Taylor may have been confused about a lot of things in life, but there were a couple of things she got right.

1. Always act like a lady.

You must always sit prim and proper. Also, if your outfit matches your couch, that’s a bonus.

A true lady always wears a hat.

2. Know how to defend yourself.

This was one of the rare times where I wasn’t staring at myself in the dojo mirrors.

3. You are never too curvy to rock a bikini.

Look out, swimwear models.

4. Never be afraid to be glamorous, even when others might deem it inappropriate. (Like at the pool.)

“Sailor chic” is a thing.

I was literally too cool for school. I wish I were this glam now.

5. Life is never too hectic for naptime, wherever it might occur.

6. Don’t be afraid to wear provocative sayings on your clothing. Express yo’self.

7. It’s important to love one’s country.

8. When in doubt, eat the cake.

9. Never hesitate to get excited about the small things in life, like bath time, bike helmets, time with friends, and pretty flowers.

  1. Since when did you do karate?! I didn’t know you were a martial artist. So talented.
    Seriously, you were the cutest. And cake…gurrrrl I feel you. Somehow I always had blueberry something or other all over my face, which I remembered this morning at breakfast as i shoved a handful of those suckers down and ran out the door.

    You’ve inspired me to resurrect my own fashion lessons from days of old…:
