Small Style, School Style

My kid is as kind as they come. She's gentle, thoughtful, sweet and well mannered. My girl is full to the brim with uproarious hilarity, and heartbreaking adorableness. Seeee?

But mah gawd, her matching skills are really sub awesome. Pink + pastel purple + red = ouchie eyes. 

I tried to sell her on the Amazing Super Sparkle Rainbow Shoes with Stars for Stella, and she bought it for all of three seconds, and then shrill shrieks of SHOES OFFFFFF! reverberated off our bare walls, and I almost thought that it was the rapture because of the fervour with which my child was yelling, but no, she just wanted her plastic, croc-like footwear, which, BTW, are called her Green Shoes, even though they're purple.

Anyway. So, I guess I'll just have to start building a wardrobe around these pale violet shoes, because they're a permanent fixture and there's no changing this girl's mind. Ever. About anything. Even if you try to use the old rainbow sparkle stars for Stella line.

Anyway, here's what she wore to school today. Red and blue dress. Pink hair clip. Purple shoes. You know.


And here she is, totally going to school like a boss, rocking the drop off with no tears, and slaying the big girl slide.

Oh, and PS, school has an indoor waterfall and koi fish, because obvs (OMG THIS PLACE IS AMAZING love Jakarta x on billion.)


Stella Wore

Dress - Tea Collection (check out the amazingly adorable special occasion red carpet dress that you can go and get NOW, which I would totally buy if it went with purple shoes)

Shoes - Native

Who cares about whether she matches when she's got that gorgeous red hair, right? My boys have an affinity for crocs, but if it means I don't have to tie their shoes, I'm good with it. If Avery starts showing a preference though, I'll be fighting hard!

I always love your Small Style posts. I think I need to find a Large Style series where someone advises me on what to wear. I'm not so sure I'm any better than Stella. I have lavender houndstooth Tom's that I wear with everything. Matching? Not so much.

Also, I would like my boys to go to Stella's school. The commute would be intense, but worth it for a waterfall and koi pond.

She's so cute, and I love that she will only wear those purple shoes. So funny.

(Love, Sarah who found you via Small Style :)

Love her style. The greenery of Indonesia must be amazing! Do you have space for a garden?

Tiffany, noooooo....that's one downside. No space for a garden. Not even a balcony. I'm thinking of an indoor garden though, however, am a bit concerned that my kid will be digging in the pots and burying lego pieces and harvesting orchids and the like. She's got a green thumb that one!
