When I was blessed with a girl, the thought overwhelmed me a bit. But raising a little woman has been the shining light in my life and has allowed me to do some growing up of my own. One thing I want to emphasize with her is the ability to be able to express who she is through style. Today, we’re remixing her holiday look with Shoe Carnival.
. . .
I myself am a very casual dresser, mainly because I like being comfortable so naturally I dress Zara accordingly. But since she is growing and learning to form her own opinion, I am starting to take her personality into more consideration when I plan her outfits. She is quite spirited and loves to explore, and getting down and dirty doesn’t seem to bother her at all.
Having a girl is fun, but it doesn’t always have to be pink and glittery! I am a firm believer that you can be ladylike and still dress fun. I want to teach Zara that pushing boundaries in style is great and that it’s okay to dress how you feel. In other words my little girl can still be a girl, even when she is exploring.
Every now and then I like to mix it up with her and combine feminine and edgy styles. She rocked her high top Converse shoes with a dress, sweater, and socks for the colder weather around the holidays. And I’m obsessed with the fact that they’re leather! Means I can wipe them down if they get a little dirty, and that makes me a very happy mama.
The grey tone in her shoes complements most of her outfits whether she’s in a dress or leggings. I love seeing her in neutral colors or in basically anything but pink, so a lot of her clothes are not necessarily gender associated. Besides, who ever said reds, blues, and yellows were just for the guys?
Not me. So I say, rock whatever style you want to little mama! Just be you!
