Z Style – Spring Jacket

By March I am always DONE with wearing a heavy winter coat, aren’t you? It’s like…it’s been long enough, winter – I’m ready for something lighter and more colorful! So it comes as no surprise that it seems as though my Z is the same way. In the fall we did a little shopping at our favorite local second hand store (Growing Up in Belmont, MA) where we found her winter boots, a few other summer items, and this amazing spring jacket. In ebay terms this jacket was NWT (new with tags) and from the Missoni for Target line – score! As soon as my Z saw it in our coat closet a couple weeks ago she has demanded to wear it every day – no more winter coat!

Z Style – Jeans

I am jealous of my toddler’s new jeans.

Ok, let me take a step back. I remember when my niece was very little she always had the best jeans. Turns out my sister always got her denim at Lucky – it’s cute, it wears well, and lasts through baby and toddler crazy. This Christmas, my sister gave my Z a cute pair of Lucky jeans  – which was also around the time I decided to make the switch from leggings to denim for my Z as she was plowing through pairs of leggings during playtime – jeans are just more durable.

Anyway, now back to my original statement! We popped into the Lucky Brand store at the mall the other day and they were having an unbelievable sale where a lot of kids items were on sale for $6.97!! We got a few items for next year and the adorable jeans below. They’re a little big on her so they’ll last a while – we’ll certainly get our $7 worth! And aren’t they cute? They’re skinny jeans with adorably placed distressed spots. I paired these new jeans with a little blazer hand-me-down from the same cousin, her fave boots, and of course…a hair bow.

Z Style – Business Casual

My Z is an active girl – always running, spinning, climbing, etc… and therefore, she spends most of her time in pants.  When I want to dress her in something a little more dressed up she ends up looking like she’s ready for a day at the office, which I think is a pretty cute look for a toddler. Here’s one of our fave business casual looks she’s been sporting lately. *Note the bow, she is obsessed with putting a little clip in her hair – always accessorizing? I don’t know where she got that from…
