My Daughter’s Fashion Blog: Because Summer Starts This Week

I haven’t turned my blog over to the fashionista of the family, and with summer fast approaching, I thought we all needed so hints for the new season.

First, you have to let go of your spring outfits no matter how much you love them. Well, the headbands can stay.
However, layer. Preferably hearts. Because the AC is cold but outside isn’t. And hearts because they go well with cupcakes.
Gardening is no excuse for not looking your best.
Not gardening is not excuse for not wearing a hat.
Always go to the beach prepared.
Don’t take coming home from the beach or pool as a reason for looking scraggly.
This is how you wear a headband. They are clearly in.
Look, not everyone can pull this last style off. I’m sorry.

Happy Summertime, Fashionistas.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. just tell her that I want the cupcake leggings, because they are SWEET!!!

    I love her style, her matching skills and her adoration of COLOR!!!

    GAH, she’s beautiful and stylish!

  2. Terrific style!

    My daughter is now 12 and through some beautifully creative experimentation has come up with a reliable sense of flair that works. In fact, I often count on her opinion when I’m dressing.

    I also refrained from fixing her crazy hair-dos for years and voila, she’s great with her hair now. She dances and can do her own bun and make-up as well as any seasoned dancer. I love that she’s herself and that she’s independent. I think it’s so important to trust our children.

    Can you imagine what it must be like in households that have an image to maintain? Ugh, those poor royals- no cupcakes mixed with hearts on their children. How dull.
