To make our new standard school attire more bearable for the resident fashionista (the other one), we decided to do a small story showing off a few little tricks.
So here are the options...
Shirts: white, navy, green or yellow button-downs and polos and turtlenecks. (green and yellow? I know, don't ask, school colors)
Bottoms: navy, black, khaki pants,long shorts or skirts
Dresses: black, khaki, or navy shirt-dresses ,polo dresses or jumpers
Clearly its going to be imaginative uses of a few colors, eye-popping details and less ordinary silhouettes that keep Juliana on the fashion bus.
Lets start with this short story. Her hair has changed a bit, no? I love it. So does she. A little pink streak never hurt anything either, especially when conservatively tucked back with a silver bow.
And balanced on the other side by a single gold butterfly earring.
More sparkles at the toes. No rules about sparkley toes.
Heres a new jumper and tote she made herself. I love the floral buttons she found. Ever since she started making jumpers and totes it seems there's always one or the other in progress. Her mock turtle neck is from Old Navy.
I love this shirt dress from the Gap. I bought one too. Not a size two though. Ahem.
A stinkin' cute red clutch from Forever21 is very pop-y with black.
Naturally, more fun shoes. These are from the Gap too. Not the same kind of deals as these, but an essential, don't you think?
So there's 3 variations on a theme. We wouldn't want her personality to suffer from lack of expression. Its pretty obvious how hard it is to get her to relax and be herself. Snicker. We had so much fun, I would have taken pictures all day but she got sick of changing.
You know teenagers. They are born rule breakers. The challenge is making sure they use their brains and creativity enough within the confines of rules to make the most of it. Its almost more of an accomplishment to maintain style within rules than if you had full freedom. But only if you care about that sorta thing. We're not sure she does, really. She does think she's really funny though.
