Our Back To School Shopping At Deseret Industries

Back to school shopping! // This post is brought to you in partnership with Deseret Industries. Thank you for always being so awesome to Petit Elefant sponsors, you’re the best. // Back to school shopping is one of my most favorite times of the year.  I vividly remember shopping for school clothes when I was in elementary school, and how before we ever left the house I’d spend days thinking about what looks I wanted to put together for the…

Empowered Underwear For Girls, No Really!

tween bras

Buying underwear for tween + teen girls can be a seriously stressful experience.  And I’m not just talking about your end of the deal as a parent or guardian, I’m talking about the sweet girls you’re taking shopping. Ladies, do you remember your first experience buying a bra?  I was equally stoked and horrified to get my first bra, and the whole experience is a hazy memory of hormones and tears.  It was even worse when I went to school…

Great back to school shoes for kids

great shoes for back to school

My kids are headed back to school this week, and none of us are excited.  Summer is our favorite time of year (collectively) and we all moan and groan about the first day of school. It’s not that the kids don’t like school per se, it’s just that going back to school marks the end of our summer glory days; days filled with sunshine, pools, lazy afternoon naps, and trips to the French Riviera. For me anyway. None of that…

First day back to school fashion

first day of school fashion

I think by now we’ve established the fact that my kids, much like myself, do what they want when it comes to style.  In life too, actually.  Rules are meant to be broken, you’re-not-the-boss-of-me, and all that business.  First day back to school fashion is no exception, and I’ve learned to roll with it. Precocious started Junior High this year (sob, wail) and decided to kick her fashion up a notch.  The night before the first day of school I…

Matching red sweatshirts


About a week before we left for Europe, Hanes sent us a box of clothes.  Because they’re awesome like that.  And aside from the socks and underwear we’ve come to love, Hanes has a handful of clothes I really like.  T-shirts, sweatshirts, cute tops, shorts for the kids. I packed a small selection in the kids suitcases, and didn’t think more of it until we had a layover in New York City on our way to Paris. I changed the…

Spring 5th grade fashion

kid style

I’ve mentioned before that Precocious doesn’t let me within an inch of her closet.  Well.  Sometimes she does, but more often than not she doesn’t really think I have any fashion sense. *AHEM* She doesn’t care that I style people for a living. Now while I normally eschew the matching of tops to shoes and purses, I have to admit this works on her. Maybe because she’s ELEVEN. She got these purple ballet flats for Christmas and has worn them…
