It's YOU TAKEOVER TUESDAY again and you know what that means - time to answer another reader question.  Today's comes from Caroline in Brookline, Massachusetts.  She writes:

Dear AFOMFT, We're having photos taken over Labor Day weekend and I'm looking for something colorful and fun for my almost-one-year-old to wear for the pictures.  She doesn't really walk so I'm hoping to find an outfit that will still look cute on a crawler - dresses always seem to look kind of funny on her when she's not standing.

Caroline, I feel your pain.  I have photos taken of Gabrielle and Alaina several times a year and it never fails that I end up debating what to dress them in for weeks beforehand.  You want to find something cute but no so overpowering that all you see in the pictures is the outfit, and with crawlers you definitely want something sassy on their bottom too.  Cute + sassy on the bum?  That's an easy equation - you need some Ruffle Bottom Bloomers from Three Yellow Starfish.

That's three layers of sass right there!  I mean, seriously, does it get ANY cuter than this?

And they're not only delightful from behind - they look fabulous from the front too!

And there are lots more pretty pickings where those came from!  I actually originally found Three Yellow Starfish while looking for outfits for Gabrielle and Alaina to wear for family photos last spring and I fell in love with these knot dresses.

I adore the fact that they can be worn alone in the warmer weather.

And paired with a tee and jeans when the fall rolls around.

So darling!  I thought I had my mind made up, and then I spotted the reversible pinafores.  You get not one:

But two dresses in one with this two-sided design.

And your little lady can wear the pinnie with just about anything - jeans:

Some amazing accessories:

Or a coordinating pair of bloomers:

Yup, Three Yellow Starfish makes them without ruffles too.

Can you stand the sweetness?

I certainly couldn't when I got a pair on Alaina.  Just one look at her in the Lemony Ruffle Bottom Bloomers and I nearly died.

And she loves them just as much as I do.  Want proof?  My normally camera-shy toddler posed right and left to show off her new favorite outfit.

After seeing these in person, I knew I had to have two pairs of coordinating Ruffle Bottom Bloomers for Gabrielle and Alaina to wear for their second birthday pictures.  Lucky for me, Margaret, the wonderful woman behind Three Yellow Starfish, is custom making them to go along with their party theme.  I'll share more details and a sneak peek at the goodies when they arrive later this week.

Caroline, I hope the bloomers from Three Yellow Starfish are just what you're looking for when it comes to something "colorful and fun" for your princess to wear for her photos.  After all, the company tagline is "It's good to be a baby," and when your little one is wearing Three Yellow Starfish, there's no arguing with that!

And there's no arguing with how great this giveaway is - Three Yellow Starfish has generously offered to give away one pair of Cherry Dot Bloomers to a lucky AFOMFT reader!
