Sweet Style: Back to School Look

Back to School Outfits from Old Navy

Her: “You know what I want to do today Mom?”

Me: “No, baby what?”

Her: “I want to line up all my animals in my room, make my bed, play some fun music and put on a fashion show”

Me: {Heart Leaps} … “really?!, that was my favorite thing to do as a little girl too.”

KSW Style | Cute owls and Capris

We’re entering a new stage of childhood right now. One where hairstyle’s and cute clothes and whether your socks match are starting to play a more important role. Sweet has ALWAYS had great style and can make an outfit work like nobody’s business, but now she’s beginning to see the joy in it and I can’t wait to see where that takes her!

We have plans to make a few clothes of our own next week, with my sweet friends from Kids Clothes Week but in the mean time I wanted to show you the first back to school outfit she’s picked out. I know, I know it’s only July … but I’m a cheapskate and I buy things when they are on sale and these awesome capris were on sale (still are on sale, plus 30% off till 7/17) and are so absolutely 100% her.

Cute, comfy, and practical — her beauty can shine through while still allowing her to be “one of the boys” and comfortable in her own skin.

Sweet’s Tips on rocking these capris:

- Have fun with your shoes! The length allows you to wear funky bright sneakers, or cute slip-ons or sandals.

- Punch it up with color! I like mixing the deep gray here, but I also like wearing these with pops of pink and bright citrus hues

- Anything goes! I’m wearing a long tee here, but I also picked up a striped cardi and fun sweater so I can wear these all year long

Supah Fly Butterfly

When she’s not hustlin’ or breaking it down at the local fro yo, you can find Super Sweet in her supah fly attire. Her most favorite pants, hands down, are these black pajamas jeans. She would wear these each and every day with a jet black long sleeved tee if I let her. Hmm, maybe Supah Fly Butterfly moonlights as a ninja?

Yes, I said pajama jeans. Our little fashion blogger adores them, but have no fear she has found a way to make them cool that you can try too. Rock. Them. Backwards! See how those pockets give her a much more chic effect here? And when paired with a Dr. Suess – One Fish, Two Fish tee and accessorized with a Target dollar section felt butterfly mask … well, it just doesn’t get any more stylish than this folks.

Of course, a super hero could go nowhere without her trusty book of tricks, or in this case … a super glittery book shaped like a castle with flaps inside revealing tons and tons of PUPPIES!!

Hours and hours of amusement.

Don’t ask me … I learned long ago not to question a super hero.

Supah Fly Butterfly — villians be warned, this super hero patrols the aisles of Targets and bookstores and local parks all over San Antonio

My New Summer Staple

A sleeveless dress I feel confident enough to wear out in public with nothing covering my arms does NOT come along very often, so when it does … it’s something I need to share with women everywhere!

My new summer staple, a knit sundress that’s stylish, yet simple. Cute, yet comfy enough to sleep in! (Not that I would know that or anything) And easily dressed up with a belt and/or a jacket or cardigan.

I got the clover, but it also comes in black and this purplish hue

Oh yeah, and in watermelon … you KNOW I had to get the watermelon too!

Did I mention it’s only $20? Score! Thank You Target.

Who knows, maybe I’ll even show you what I look like in it one of these days! If I can get one of the kids to slow down long enough to click a picture for me.

Modern Day Pocahontas

Today is our very first outfit post for the 30 for 30 Remix with Kendi Everyday, you may remember me saying I would only use photos of outfits Sweet picked out for herself, well here’s a doozy one for you. Promise they will only get weirder … but,

just keep in mind the irony in this outfit is the HEAT!, it’s about 100 degrees outside and all she wants to wear are her fuzzy, suede, LIGHT UP boots. But really, who could blame her … they are pretty awesome. And the light show they give off when she walks is just fantastic. Why didn’t they have shoes like these when we were young??

I like to call this look the Modern Day Pocahontas, and I’m pretty sure Pocahontas herself would want to rock this look.

Now before you jump on Sweet’s bandwagon and start to think ill of me for forcing my daughter to become the World’s Youngest Fashion Blogger, please know all the emotion you’re witnessing in these photos has nothing to do with her modeling, but everything to do with our lunch menu. She’s gaga for Peanut Butter,  she’d eat it for every meal if I let her, and snacks in between as well. I love PB as much as the next girl, but variety IS the spice of life.

Happy_1

Happy decided he wanted to partake in today’s fashion photos as well, he’ll be making random appearances throughout the remix. Today he’s rocking his Bumble Bee tee and some shiny blue athletic shorts from Old Navy. Each day when he’s done dressing himself he runs up to me and asks me to check and make sure he’s “handsome”. I just love the way he pronounces it too. Each day I answer the same way, “Oh Happy, you are SO handsome!” and then we High Five and get on with our business. It’s one of our favorite parts of the morning.

Outfit1_Outtakes

We had a few out takes I thought you might like to see and even a peep show I’m sure no one wants to see. All in all a pretty successful first look. Can’t wait to share the next one. Oh yeah, P.S. Sweet’s dress is from Target and her fuzzy suede awesome light up boots are from Payless.
