I do. I thought about this because I just spun my head around to see my 3 yo come from her bedroom. Shes wearing brown leggings with little blue flowers on them, and an orange long dora shirt with little leaves on it, covered by a pink sweater dress. She looks fabulous...... to her... LOL!

I tried to but it became a huge argument. My son is obsessed with Disney's cars and has 3 Lighting McQueen shirts that he wants to wear with cars shoes and basketball shorts I let him wear what he wants to on the weekends as long as it is weather appropriate.

Yep, once they can. My daughter comes up with some pretty weird outfits. It is easier with my son since he basically has jeans and shorts and shirts.For a while though he had this sweater vest that he liked to wear and would wear it over shirts.

My daughter loves to dress herself but I swear sometimes the outfits she comes up with, I won't let her leave the house in. But around the house, yes its ok. Most of the time she does well, she just wears jeans with shirts or a skirt with a shirt. But this weekend she comes out of her room wearing sky blue cotton shorts from Childrens Place topped with a dark purple velvet shirt (very dressy) and wanted to wear it all day. Thank goodness we didn't have to go anywhere! She felt beautiful in her blue cotton shorts and purple velvet long sleeve shirt though!

 Thats so funny! At this age, 16 months, he cant dress himself. He can UNdress himself though!

So cute!

I let my dd (2.5) HELP pick out her clothes... and she puts them on by herself. She does well at picking out her clothes... she is pretty anal about things matching so that helps.

My son is 15 months and he doesn't do anything by himself yet LOL

We pick out our kids' outfits for the day...they can ask if they want to wear something specific. I remember I didn't get to choose my own clothes until I was 10, so I guess I have never thought about letting my kids choose their own yet.
