Imaginary Outfit

Summer break is right around the corner and my 8 year old is counting down the days.
reminds me how precious those summer months are. 
This summer, I'll be sure to let my daughter run a little wild with her best friend at her side.  They'll
solve mysteries on the go with a backpack full of bugspray, pb&j sandwiches and a magnifying glass.

'I have so got an ambition,' Trixie told him with a toss of her head. 'It's all settled. Honey and I are going to be private detectives; aren't we, Honey?'

Trixie Belden was Nancy Drew's younger and scrappier crime-fighting counterpart. Her life was filled with brothers, dogs and horses, and she and her best friend Honey Wheeler spent a lot of time running around in cut-offs, moccasins, and camp shirts tossed over swim suits as they tracked down petty thieves.

It's still a pretty great summer uniform.


  1. I never ready Nancy Drew. :-(
    I was into Henry Huggins and Ramona and all that stuff. Also, How to Eat Fried Worms and Freckle Juice. Then it was on to Sweet Valley High. I think I'll go to the library tomorrow and see if I can get a few Nancy Drew books for Han.

  2. LOVED Trixie Belden. And Nancy Drew. And the Dana Girls and Meg Mysteries. There's just something about young girl crime fighters!

    That outfit just screams summer in New England to me!!
