I love seeing what S will choose to wear every morning. It just tells me so much about her.
The kids have a chest of Malm drawers from Ikea each, so they can open up the drawers and choose by themselves what to wear (S also puts her clean clothes away, L is still learning...).
Essentially I never tell her what to wear. If we are going somewhere, I usually give her some guidelines or recommendations (like "you might want to wear pants, it'll be more practical to climb" or "if you want to wear that dress you'll need a jumper as well because it's cold out there", you know, the usual motherly things...) and then leave it up to her, she can choose whatever she wants.
I have more input with L (being that he's still only 18 months), some days he couldn't care less, but I always make sure I give him a choice, and most days he gets quite happy choosing his own outfit for the day.
I really enjoyed a few weeks ago reading this post by Owlet Mama, and decided I'd join in, it is nice having a record of the kids' sense of style...
Have been a little slack with photos recently, but here are a couple to start me off:

ready for a line up ;)
|both kids chose their own outfits|
|S chose her dress and leggings, |
then chose L's fairy outfit,
she seems very pleased with the result
