I firmly believe that it's better to be overdressed than under-dressed.
Incidentally, it is (completely sincere) statements like this that led me to adopt the pen name of Proper Paige for the purpose of etiquette blogging. (I've got a lot less to say about etiquette these days, but once the poopy diaper ratio goes down, the etiquette ratio will go back up.)
Anyway, as for my zeal for being appropriately (if not over) dressed, it appears that Sawyer shares it. Because, you see, this is what he wore to the beach.
You will note the beach-patterned rash guard and matching swim trunks, a swim diaper, and a sun hat (off to the side).
You will note that his choice of beach towel is in complimentary colors.
You will also note the most fabulous baby sock-moccasins ever to grace the shores of Port Aransas, Texas.
Sawyer knew that, even if our beach trip was after Labor Day, it was still a beach trip, and these would be fine.
This nap on the beach towel is as close as Sawyer ever got to the water. He was both well-dressed and over-dressed.
That's my boy.
Hope your panache shows today.
