If you follow my Mini Fashionista series you can probably gather one thing: I’m very picky when it comes to what my kids wear. My mantra when people try to shop for my girls: Think of me. Would I wear it? Ok, maybe I’m a little bit more lenient when it comes to my daughters, but not very, ha! I cringe at the thought of Charlotte wearing anything with Minnie Mouse on it that’s not pajamas. So anyway, the point is, I like it when my girls look a little more…. chic? while still remaining the kids they are! I mean in all seriousness, they’re kids… they’re messy. Let’s be realistic. Which is why I am a huge fan of Amy Coe!
I was recently approached by someone from Amy Coe’s company about collaborating for my Mini Fashionista series. I was seriously over the moon excited when I received the e-mail! I have bought a million things for both of my girls from Amy Coe. I LOVE the fact that she makes big girl style clothes for little ones. I have scored sparkly leggings, faux fur vests, adorable graphic tee’s, and so much more at the most amazing prices. They have a faux red leather moto jacket that I am just DYING to get my hands on! This designer helps me keep Charlotte and Kennedy on trend on a budget. What could be better? For this outfit in particular I’m in love with the built in tutu, for a few reasons. ONE, it is so on point with Charlotte’s latest ‘ballerina’ obsession. Everything that has a tutu skirt makes it a ballerina dress, apparently, and that is her current infatuation. TWO, the skirt is attached so it takes away all the fuss of trying to find one that matches her outfit, since she basically needs to wear a tutu every day now. THREE: and another reason I’m glad it’s attached, she can’t take it off in the middle of a store if she suddenly feels the need, or she can’t randomly take it off and put it on one of our dogs. It happens, guys. It happens.
I’m also a big fan of the color scheme for this outfit, it has just enough pink to be girly but keeping the bulk of the ensemble black is key since the tutu skirt kind of speaks for itself. Edgy and sweet at the same time. Also I feel this is worth mentioning, when this outfit showed up at my door step, it came with a hand written note from Amy Coe herself. I immediately felt a little love and respect that she took the time to write such a sweet note about my girls when it wasn’t her I had been in contact with. They also sent an outfit along for Kennedy, which came as a total surprise! Look how cute my little blueberry looks!
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to snap any pictures before she devoured her breakfast, so ignore the remnants of her oatmeal there, ha. This little onesie is even more adorable! They have me hooked on the built in tutus! Amy’s holiday line is coming down the pipeline soon and I couldn’t be more excited to find my girls some outfits for all the festivities, which is just around the corner! YIKES!
Side note: MY BEST FRIEND IS ENGAGED!! I’m still so excited over this whole thing that I have to share it with you guys too! haha! Every time I even think about it I get all emotional and teary eyed. This girl is one of the most genuine human beings I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and with her cooking skills, she is going to make one amazing wife. You’re a lucky man Jake! Good for you for locking that shit down. ;] Love you both! Long gone are the days when we could party like rockstars in the creepy basement that is Dark Horse, or crowded rooms of Park Ave, but with all the upcoming celebrating, we can certainly try. Love you, Rooms. <3
