Dressing Santa's Helpers.....

This time of year I'm not only dressing myself for holiday parties, but my kids as well. This takes some compromise and often times a few trips to the mall or UPS for returns! I have never been into the matchy-matchy dressing, even when the girls were little. They have very different personalities and their style should show that!

At this point my 14 year old is basically shopping in my closet (at least for things she considers cool enough to wear)! So for this photo shoot she borrowed my Louise Et Cie patent leather oxfords and Louis Vuitton tote - both of which I demanded back once the day was over! She tends to "hold on" to things of mine she loves and I never see them again. I paired these two great accessories with a simple, but very cool dress from Top Shop and a white hat from Aldo since it was about 40 degrees out that day! Accessories - the very popular mantra bracelets and Caedan bracelet! Cooper who is 12 is on the cusp of being a teen, and her look shows exactly that. Her Crewcuts sweater is sweet, yet sophisticated and when put with a denim skirt and Steve Madden boots, the look becomes fun and edgy. Cam is my sparkly girl. She always has been. The more bling, the better. So, there is a lot compromise! Thankfully, Crewcuts has a lot great options that make mom and Cam both happy. Navy is one of my favorite colors and I am so happy that it is so popular this season and in sequins! And this fun sweater (similar to shown) is super cute and can easily go with jeans and leggings too. Finally, studded black flats from Zara, which go with everything (Cam's exact words)! Holiday kid dressing made easy!
