Glam Holiday Dresses for Girls

Its officially November and that means we will soon be knee deep in planning for the Holiday season. I try to plan early in November for the events that our family will attend during the holiday season and the special Holiday outfits that are needed. A few years ago I waited too long and everything I liked for my kids, was sold out. I learned my lesson to plan ahead. Mia is 9 years old and has had her own since of style, since I can remember. She is very particular when it comes to what she wears. Its hard for me to shop without her. girls holiday dresses

We were recently introduced to the online boutique Girls Dress Shop they have Glam dresses that are age appropriate for girls newborn to 12, that will be sure to add some holiday sparkle this season. Mia was excited to take sometime together and do some online shopping to pick out the perfect holiday dress.  After much deliberation, she narrowed it down to the Harlow dress.

The Harlow is a classic dress in ivory with black lace. It is a dress she can wear multiple times this holidays season. We can easily change her hair, accessories and add a cardigan or shrug when the colder temperatures hit.

A Day At the Orchard

Life with a toddler is fun.  Their sense of wonderment at the smallest things is contagious.  We brought the kids apple picking during our fall Michigan weekend and he had the best time.toddler gymboree five When we arrived at Crane's Orchard, the first thing Will discovered was the pumpkin barn.  He loved running in and out and poking his head through the windows.  When it was time to leave, he wasn't thrilled. gymboree toddler two For our day outdoors, we dressed Will in layers from Gymboree.  His plaid button down shirt matches the trim on his cuffed jeans.  A cotton sweatshirt cardigan was the perfect extra layer for this warm fall day.  Faux leather navy sneakers complete his ensemble.

Gymboree has been a staple in my kids' closets through the years.  The pieces are well made and have cute details.toddler gymboree oneOnce we finally dragged Will out of the Pumpkin Barn, he was off running through the orchard.

We had the best fall day.  Until it was time to leave.  Then toddler meltdown city.  Life with a toddler is fun, like a roller coaster.

 

Thanks to Gymboree for providing this outfit, all opinions are honest and my own.

The Great Outdoors with Sports Authority!

It is feeling and looking more like fall in our area. We live around a ton of forest preserves, rivers and lakes. Our family loves to be outside and explore the great outdoors. Taking hikes is something we love to do (all year long) but especially in the fall. Seeing the color changes on the trees is a favorite of ours. kids active wear

 

Being on the trails is a time we can all enjoy as a family without any distractions. The best part for me is watching my kids being outside and bonding together.

Dressing for Fall is all about layers. In the mornings it can be a low of 40 but it can get as warm as 65-70 in the afternoon (like it was yesterday). Both of the kids love wearing active wear on the weekend and for school. Its comfortable and easy way to get them dressed an out the door. When shopping for active wear that I know the kids will approve of, we head to Sports Authority

How to Make Everyone Smile in Family Pictures

The biggest challenge when selecting outfits for your family pictures is not coordinating pieces.  The biggest challenge is making sure everyone in the family looks like themselves.  It's easy to pick four outfits with navy and mustard yellow. And Maybe when your children are small it isn't that difficult because your kids' style is really just your style.  But as they grow and get a style of their own you need to be mindful that everyone loves what their wearing and feels great.  Because feeling great in your outfit is the difference between a good family photo and a fantastic family photo.

The O Family was super fun to work with.  They have a tween son and pre-tween daughter who know where they like to shop and have strong opinions on their outfits.  Their son is Abercrombie all the way and their daughter loves to mix prints and stand out.  Add in a preppy dad, Anthropologie loving mom and new baby and you have 5 totally different styles that need to compliment each other.

Their photo session will take place outside in the fall color and they wanted outfits to compliment the changing leaves.what to wear for fall family picturesThe result is a twirly-boho-preppy-outdoorsy look that will make everyone say CHEESE!

If your interested in our virtual styling services, send an email to info@thelittlestylefile.com.  Thanks to the O Family for allowing us to open our style files to them!  We can't wait to see your pics!
