Easy Breezy Dresses – Great for Summer!

You know how much I like dresses – I like them a lot! I have quite a few dressy dresses, but I also have dresses that are pretty casual too. This blog post is devoted to my casual dresses. They are made of the same cotton as a tee-shirt and I can wear them in lots of different ways – with long sleeve tee-shirts underneath or without, with my Converse or with flats, but ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS with my signature pair of leggings underneath! Hey, that’s my look, okay! And yes, you’re going to notice that apparently I have a thing for stripes. These dresses are so casual that I am going to take them all to Disney World with me. It’s hot where I live, but it’s plenty hot in Florida this time of year too! I have some new leggings and they are capri leggings, so I can keep cool in my casual dresses while I’m riding the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train! They are perfect for summer weather.

Love That Hanna Andersson!

So, if you’ve been following my blog you know by now that I really like Hanna Andersson. I have several of their dresses. They are super cute and whether you are a girly-girl or a tomboy, you can dress them up or dress them down. And at least where I live, Hanna Andersson is a catalog/Internet store. They are not in the mall, so if your mom orders you clothes from there, then they will be different than some of the clothes you see other girls wearing. I am at the top size range that they sell, so it’s almost time for me to say good-bye to my beloved Hanna Andersson. Soon I’m going to have to find a new store to get my cute dresses from. I like Hanna Andersson because they have stylish clothes that aren’t too fussy. They are colorful and simple and aren’t too grown up yet. Everybody at school complements me on the clothes that I get from there. And they aren’t too expensive. I see that a lot of the fashion blogs focus on expensive designer clothes, which are really pretty, but I’m pretty sure that my mom isn’t going to buy me any clothes from Chanel, even if that’s my middle name. And I am also pretty sure that I wouldn’t want to wear those designer clothes to school because I’m eleven. And when you’re eleven, you have to go to P.E. And when you have to go to P.E., you have to play dodge ball even though you hate it. And the P.E. teacher doesn’t care if I’m wearing clothes that are designer and expensive. So, now that that’s settled, I’d recommend that you take a look at Hanna Andersson. The pictures in today’s blog show one of my favorite Hanna Andersson dresses worn in three different ways. I like it so much that I got it in three colors! You can change up the look of the dress by wearing different accessories – like barrettes, headbands, earrings, necklaces, t-shirts, leggings, and shoes.

Me and My Land’s End Jeans – What’s Your Style Profile???

I think that everybody has their own style profile. What I mean by that is that you know what kinds of clothes you like wearing, but also know what looks good on you. My mom taught me that. She always says that there are certain clothes that she really likes how they look, but she may not wear them because they may not look good on her. At the same time, she says that it is important to know what does look good on you and to choose more of those clothes when you are shopping. So, my first rule of creating your own style profile is to find out what you like. Rule number two is to find what looks good on you. Rule number three is to make it your own and rock it! As long as it is appropriate for school and it passes dress code and you like it and it makes you feel good, wear it. When my mom and I are shopping for clothes for me, whether we go to the mall or shop online, we find what I like and what looks good on me and then we buy a lot of it. As you have already seen, I love, love, love dresses and leggings and flats. But, I have lots of outfits where I find one thing that I like and that fits me well and then we buy it in lots of colors. So, today’s blog post is dedicated to my Land’s End jeans. I have a pair of colored 5-pocket denim jeans in white and two pair of colored 5-pocket pencil leg jeans in soft rosehip (pink) and rich cherry (red). Check out all the outfits I can make with my white jeans.
