Having children is the best feeling in the world (so I’ve heard)! I don’t have children yet so I can’t say that I know the feeling but I know how fun it is to get them dressed. I have nephews and God-daughters and I absolutely love shopping for them. It’s funny to me because they all have their own unique style and like to pick their own clothes.
This picture of the Jolie-Pitt kiddos (below) made me laugh because it reminded me of how different my nephews and God-daughters are with their style. My oldest nephew (11) is preppy and likes to wear polo shirts and slacks while my youngest nephew (6) is more into trying to dress like Michael Jackson.
I think it’s important to let your children have a little say in what they wear. It’s part of expressing themselves and coming into their own. Granted we don’t want the kids to have too much say so a good start would be to pick out a few choices and let them decide from what you’ve selected. Doing so will encourage and support their individuality without going overboard. I look at Angelina’s kids and they are definitely individuals. Zahara (5) is a girly girl in her cardigan and shorts while Shiloh (4) is more of a tomboy and prefers to only wear boy clothes (I won’t get into that). Maddox (9) has the surfer look and young Pax (6) is dressed like a little man. Check out the pieces below that will fit into your budget and keep your little ones stylish.
