styled by caroline… what 10 year olds want to wear

If you’ve been here for the long run, you know I used to match my minis every chance I could get. Yeah, those times are LONG gone and so are the days where I had the ultimate say as to what they would wear when walking out of the house each day.

They truly have their own personalities and boy do they have their own style favorites. So I thought it would be fun to take you into the mind of a 10 year old and show off a few favorite brands Caroline is loving as of late and some new finds we have ordered for one stellar summer wardrobe!

Egg New York

Funny enough, I was a retail customer of this beloved brand back when I had my kids store. I always loved the bright colorways, the accents + details, and of course the traditional fit and styling. They never failed me then and my girls still love Egg to this day!

Crown and Ivy

Belk’s exclusive brand is winning my girls’ hearts [and mine as well] with their adorable new styles, perfect for ages 8 and up. I love that they totally look like trends I want to wear, but made for their age group and totally appropriate for all the occasions and events we have coming up. The prices are FANTASTIC and their sets have been a regular rotation for Caroline, too!

Traditional, preppy, classic attire we can all agree on. I always know when I peruse the website at JCrew my girls are going to find goodies we both will love and they will hold up season after season. The easy to access price points, mix and match separates and church appropriate dresses + jumpsuits are always a staple in my girls’ wardrobe.

If you’re one to shop in store, I cannot recommend Dillard’s enough, especailly when it comes to girls’ attire. Their selection is by far the best and I love that their in-house brands offer something special so not everyone will have the same outfit = because yes that happens! From special occasion to everyday athleisure, the Gianni Bini girls brand is a hands down fav for Caroline [and me].
