Sometimes my plans backfire

Last spring I bought Lucy some rather inexpensive knit skirts with the shorts built in. At about $4 each, I went ahead and got about 4 colors in size 4T. She wore them everyday after school, then all summer, then on warmer days in the fall. I finally decided to put them away just before Christmas because 1.) it's too cold and 2.) they are too short on her now.

So what happens yesterday as a cold front blows in? She twirls into my room asking how she looks. She is wearing a summer shirt and one of Camille's size 18 month skirts. She is 5. She looks ridiculous, but explained that it was her only choice because her skirts were gone. Never mind the jeans, pants, or longer skirts she has.
