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.


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.

purple ballet flats

She got these purple ballet flats for Christmas and has worn them infinitely since then.

Can’t say I blame her, they’re adorable.

So, Spring 5th Grade Fashion outfit:

– Jeans: Skinny Jeans from GAP

– Purple shrug sweater from T.J. Maxx

– Tank top from Old Navy

— Purple ballet flats from T.J. Maxx

    That’s so cute! I usually try to avoid the matching shoes/top thing but sometimes it just works really well!
