This week it's battle time! Raya, the budding tot fashion stylist to the stars, against Mama, the experienced fashion stylist to her two mini mes :-)
First up is Raya, picking this gorgeous number for you all! Please note how she chooses a button up sweater (Carters brand) but does *not* layer any shirt underneath! Genius :-) She said that would make her too hot and sweaty--good call Raya, good call. And then notice how she carefully chose leggings (Target brand) to go with said sweater. Leggings aren't just for dresses anymore--she's starting a trend people! I do appreciate how she carefully matched her leggings to the buttons on her sweater. And then of course you must accessorize! Cowboy boots (Target) are totally the logical footwear choice here....and then a Baby Bop hat (Etsy) to top it all off!
|Raya is not at all impressed with any of the other Trendy Tots--- she says ya'lls Mamas dress you! |
Those are fighting words Miss Raya! ;-)
Wow, just wow. Well, it's going to be hard competing with that outfit Miss Raya, but I will try!
I was feeling Spring-y today and decided to pull out some Gymboree for Brielle. However I decided to keep it simple, with a sweet ruffle tunic and leggings (sorry Raya, we'll leave it to the people's vote of course, but I think my use of leggings with a tunic wins out over yours! ;-) We went without accessories or footwear, because frankly I was feeling like a minimalist after Raya revealed her look to me!
And now in closing, we will each reveal one fashion tip that we think can really add to your "style" this upcoming spring/summer!
Raya's tip is to always, ALWAYS, wear mismatched socks. She insists upon it. Matching socks are just not very pretty or fancy she says.
See example A
|Clearly Baby Bop continues to be a unifying theme in her wardrobe as well!|
And now my own take-away tip for today is to check out the ruffle shorts at Children's Place right now---I posted a few days ago about ours and they are so stinkin' cute! (I think I have you beat with this one Raya---mismatched socks don't compare to ruffles :-)
And finally, what do stylists wear *themselves* in their down time? Well, Miss Raya likes to experiment with a variety of runway looks, and her unique sense of style is starting to rub off on Brielle too!
I'm sure this stylist battle will continue for years to come!!!! Here's to hoping we forever fight over mismatched socks and Baby Bop, instead of body piercings and blue hair ;-)
....and as for the make-up battle that I"m sure is ahead in future years, well I'm bracing myself for that one. Raya already does her own make-up too and she's a little heavy handed with the blush haha.
Happy Tuesday everyone!!! Does *your* child have a quirky fashion sense?
