Small Style Icon | Lila

3 Flares 3 Flares ×

Small Style Icon this week features super stylish and ridiculously photogenic little Lila. Lila is the star of the fantastic photo blog Lila Was Here, one of my favourite daily reads. Lila’s mom Andrea is one of my good friends best buds {sorta a tongue twister}, otherwise I would not have had the pleasure of ‘meeting’ her. Andrea knows style, she is an amazing photographer, the talent behind Pink Sugar Photography, I’m sure you have seen her work all over pinterest! If you live in Western Canada Pink Sugar is the photographer you should be calling {I hope we can book a session with her one day!}, by far one of our fav photographers! Lila has such great style, I mean she dresses better then most adults, and she’s super cute to boot!

So naturally, Lila and Andrea are the perfect pair to inspire and give us a few tips on how to dress a Small Style Icon!

Cardigan: Crewcuts…Tank Top: The Gap…Skirt: Crewcuts…Socks: Crewcuts…Boots: Hunter…Donkey: Jellycat

What are your favourite stores or brands you like to shop at, for Lila?

i shop quite frequently, and at a lot of stores and online shops, but the majority of lila’s wardrobe staples, and my favourite pieces, come from either zara or crewcuts. the quality is great, the fit typically works for my slim girl, and i love that most of the clothes are things i would wear myself if they came in my size! the fact that we have a zara here in edmonton, and that j. crew offers free shipping to canada on their kids’ stuff helps too 😉

Shirt: H&M…Shorts: Zara…Scarf: Zara…Sandals: Zara…Necklace: Made by talented mom

Do you have any tips for putting a little outfit together for other Mom’s who are wanting to dress their little one like a small icon?

layer and accessorize! adding a vest or scarf or necklace adds visual interest and can totally make an outfit. throw on suspenders with a tank and skirt; add a flowered pin to a simple t-shirt; throw on a floppy hat and sunglasses with a swimsuit; the options are endless 🙂

Does Lila’s style mirror your own or is her personalty beginning to shine thru? Does she ever pick out her own clothes?

in the last few months we’ve been transitioning into joint decisions on clothing choices, so i’d say a little of both. she almost always chooses her own shoes, and now that the weather is finally nice here, i usually ask if she’d prefer a dress or a skirt or shorts and then we pick out some pieces from there. i think if it were up to her, she’d wear something either floral or striped everyday!
or perhaps she’d wear a tutu… this look was 100% lila….

What are your {or Lila’s} FAV 3 pieces that get the most wear/use?

for everyday playing and running around: tiny toms, crewcuts slub cotton cardi, and 77kids boyfit undies (seriously, if you have a toddler daughter, you need to try these! comfort, coverage and thick high quality cotton).

Jacket: Crewcuts…Scarf: Zara…Shirt: Zara…Jeans: Noppies…Boots: The Gap

Thank you so much Lila and Andrea!!

Amazing photo’s and SUPER stylish little girl right?  Make sure to check out Lila Was Here and Pink Sugar Photography!
