Play with Prints
Before my daughter was born I imagined her living in a soothing world of neutral earth tones and muted prints, eschewing all things pink and sparkly, and though I continue to fight the good fight, she nevertheless is looking (and sounding) more and more like a parrot.
As it turns out, colorful kids clothes are cute as hell, the mixing and matching is perfectly suited to the utter mayhem that is toddlerhood. How can you maintain frustration at a tiny human systematically emptying every drawer and garbage can in every room when that tiny human is wearing yellow corduroy overalls with half a cracker stuck to the leg, an orange giraffe print t-shirt and a lime green bonnet? In the spirit of adventure and exhaustion, I have acquiesced. With clear boundaries. NO HOT PINK. Not as long as I can avoid it. But i’ll trade for leopard. Double leopard.
A wise Woman once said…
Nothing goes with leopard,
So everything goes with leopard.~Wise Fashion Goddess
I actually don’t know who wrote that, nor do I know if it was a Woman, but still. I like my clothes like I like my burgers, animal style.
Here’s an awesome shoot I styled recently in Los Angeles for Sandcastle Magazine. We let the kids run wild on the school grounds, dangle from the monkey bars, and scream as loud as they wanted. It was epic.
Bold Solids Need Love Too!
When buying for your kids, bold colors and an unexpected silhouette can jazz up any basic outfit. Jeans are an obvious staple, but how about a wide leg trouser for your big kid to update a tee and classic shearling lined Levi’s jacket? Seriously though, how do these kids look so effortlessly cool, like tiny oblivious icons. What a way to live.
