These photos of little Harlow running away from me are a few weeks old already, I have gotten a bit behind in the kids’ outfit posts {I have more photos then time}. That’s why the weather in these pictures is a tad bit deceiving, we have had chilly and fall like lately {with tons of cold yucky  rain}.

This was one of those days where I had a bunch of boring errands to do, so poor Harlow was hanging out in the stroller for a few hours. Once we were all done and I freed her from the stroller she ran away from me squealing in delight. Hence why her dress is all wrinkled {being locked in the stroller}, and why in every photo she looks like she’s running {because she was}. This is what Harlow wore…

Cardigan:H&M {last fall}…Dress:H&M{past summer}…Socks:H&M…Shoes:Zara Baby…Amber Teething Necklace:Baltic Amber

It’s so funny how all little toddlers do that staring down at the ground thing when they walk, and they really miss most things that are right in front of them. Funny and also a bit scary!

casual {American Apparel}   rain ready {Bobo Choses}  chic {Stella McCartney}  cozy&warm {nico nico}

The Cape was actually trendy last fall winter as well, which means that this year it’s definitely a must have as well as a trend. This year there is much more of a causal take on the kids cape, an easy and fun outerwear piece to literally just throw on.

Dress your little gal just like a mini Blake Lively…

1.77 kids black flop hat 2.Crewcuts girls schoolboy blazer 3.The Gap kids girls classic tee 4.Zara girls quilted handbag 5.The Gap girls bow skinny pants 6.Crewcuts girls leopard desert boot . photo

A much cuter, casual, and fun version of Blake Lively’s outfit. I do really love her hat, I would love one to hide my bad hair days or “no time to do my hair days”.


Yesterday I made a little appearance on Sometimes Sweet, as part of Danielle’s 9 to 5: Women at Work feature. Swing by and have a look.

Also just a little update regarding The Style Mentors, we received a ton of wonderful feedback and as a result have improved our prices. There will also be a few more additions and changes coming down the line. Since this is a brand new endeavor (a work in progress) changes and improvements are something we expect and embrace. We want to make sure getting online style advice is painless, fun and easy.
