Phoenix - Kid-friendly Fashion

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Apr 1, 2013 3:39:00 PM

Phoenix isn’t just your average little girl; she has a zest that just shines through in our pictures here. We kept her look fun, energetic, playful, and casual with the styling, much like her personality! Springtime always calls for lots of coats and jackets as the temperature fluctuates, so here we show you a classic Small Wear brand kids raincoat done in a bright and lively multi-color pattern. Under that we have a sparkly animal print t-shirt from Children’s Place, cropped jeans and cute black sandals. What little girl wouldn’t love all the color and glitter we’ve pulled together in this ensemble?  It almost matches Phoenix’s own spitfire qualities! Lots of layering pieces are always the way to go for day-to-day kid-friendly fashion, and that’s why Goodwill can certainly be one of mother’s little helpers in that regard.

Rachel - Print Mixing with Maternity

Posted by Jamie Klinger-Krebs on Apr 1, 2013 3:31:00 PM

Hot mama Rachel was working on child number two when we shot this feature. Maternity clothing can certainly leave something to be desired, so we decided to mix it up with this outfit. Print mixing that is. We started with everyone’s staple - jeans as the basis for our pattern play here. We added a black Gap maternity t-shirt and then topped that off with a silky gold metallic long-sleeved blouse from Amelia’s that had black velvet piping for extra zip. The oversized hounds-tooth pattern long blazer by Avenue, dresses up the blouse and t-shirt and also provides us with a graphic to play off of. This is where the accessories come in; the floral multicolor scarf works perfectly with the hounds tooth as a foil to the geometry. It also allowed us to go bold with the other pieces such as Rachel’s favorite red flats, and the purple patent leather handbag with red piping. Classy, comfortable and stylish while almost nine months pregnant, she is ready to run errands, or simply run after her cutie-pie four- year-old daughter, Phoenix! 

Rachel's Favorite Item:
