GUEST POST: MINI-GAL STYLE WITH LAUREN REBECCA

today, the ever so stylish mama, lauren rebecca, is sharing her secrets on dressing little gals.  i have been a big fan of this insanely fashionable mama-daughter duo for a while now and i am so excited to be able to introduce you all to her.  and don't forget to stop by her blog, lauren rebecca, to check out my guest post on styling little lads.

My name is Lauren & I love shopping. Most gals do.

When Scarlett was born, my love for shopping kept on growing. Now I had two to shop for.

Scarlett's style is as eclectic as mine. I tend to wear whatever my mood draws me to.

I don't have a particular style and this happens to be how I dress Scarlett, as well. Usually, Scarlett ends up wearing an outfit that reflects mine well. Or vice-versa.

 My favorite stores to splurge:

I generally don't spend a lot of money on Scarlett's clothes. Sometimes I splurge on a few items that she can use often. But the majority of the clothing that I buy for Scarlett, is inexpensive. I try to find pieces that Scarlett can wear over and over again. For example, Scarlett's Minnetonka's were a bit pricey, but she can wear her moccasins through all four seasons. Mixing and matching also helps save money on buying more than necessary. Sometimes, I put leggings under a dress so Scarlett can wear a dress in colder weather, too. Or leggings under shorts. Style for mini gals doesn't have to be expensive, it's all about deciding what pieces you should splurge on and what items you should save on. I can almost always find a great outfit at a second-hand store for both me and my mini babe. I tend to splurge on shoes and layering basics. I tend to save on items that I know she will only wear a few times (summer clothes that won't fit her next summer). Style to me is important because it reflects personality. Once Scarlett is old enough to choose her own clothes, she can make those decisions. Until then, I'm more than happy to coordinate her outfits for her.
