Sharing Fashion Fun with My Niece

Posted on: June 23, 2013

I decided to start this week of showing you the fun I had last week with my niece… 

It’s Visible Monday and Watch What I’m Wearing , so please  go check the creativity of these lovely ladies!!! 


This was what I wore the day we took a walk and a woman stopped to compliment us…


My niece has her own really great gladiator sandals, but she has this habit of kicking them off and wearing my shoes every chance she got… Apparently she does the same at home with her mother… Funny thing is that her foot is a half size larger than mine… This was what she was wearing that garnered the woman to stop and compliment us. At the time of the compliment and our walk she was wearing her own shoes!!!


This is the most bohemian look I’ve put together yet… This day my niece and I walked to the craft store to get some supplies for the summer.   I still can’t believe I bought these Birki’s a few years ago( I use to make fun of them) ,but at my age they really are great walking shoes… I wish I had gotten them in tan instead of stark white…. 


My niece arrived wearing blush colored jeans that made a great look on their own,but when she menitoned loving longer skirts,but not being able to wear them to school… I grabbed my pink one (elastic waist makes this work for her) and told her she could have this one… She couldn’t wait to put it on and  really seemed to love it…  Here are her own shoes!!!! 


Little miss says her favorite color is cobalt and she loves pairing it with yellow.  Once again,  she took off her gladiator sandals and was photographed wearing my shoes…. I never even noticed this until I got behind the camera… 

Dear Readers, as you can see we had a fun fashion week taking each other’s photos.  I don’t know enough about her style to shop too much for her, but did find her a few tops at the thrift store last week.  I am hoping to find her a pair of flat  boots that are appropriate before school starts.  I saw a  few girls in her class picture wearing some and have high hopes that I will have some luck there.  Since I find brand new quality shoes all the time, I am really hoping that works out!!!  


i am grateful for a great week with my neice and look forward to spending more time with her the 1st week of July. 

I am grateful that the migraine medicine I took finally got rid of my headache…

I am grateful for the dog whining when my daughter put on her uinform to head out to Petsmart and the memory it conjured up of her  similar reaction when she was a baby and saw me in my Olive Garden uniform….

I’m glad you’re having so much fun with your niece. She is just darling. I was able to find a few things for my daughter at a garage sale yesterday, including 2Gap sweaters and Loft shorts, all for .25 each. For myself, I went to a $1 thrift store sale and found a few nice things. FUN!

This tween stage is such a delicate dance of learning what her preferences are and respecting the budding fashionista as she definitely loves fashion and has ideas! So glad you are still enjoying the amazing finds and brands for great pricing!

How cool are you two! It must be a blast playing dress up, especially when such pretty clothes are involved. You both look great in every outfit you chose/pilfered 😉


Thank you, it was a fun week! Since my own daughter focuses on her studies and being a brainiac, she sees my passion for fashion as frivolous… she has a good eye, but turns away when I try to talk with her about it… why ae daughters so complicated??

So glad you were able to spend time with your adorable neice. Too funny about her wearing your shoes. I’ve never had Birkenstocks, but my mom has worn them for the past several years.
Love your bohemian colors. I had a skirt like this a couple of years ago during my boho skirt phase. I think I wore 90% long skirts like this for about 3 years straight.

Funny, does that mean you weren’t wearing many pants outfits??? I wouldn’t have guessed that. With your weight loss maybe it’s time to try a shorter skirt for fun?

oh you two are great together! I am like you, Tracey, I have given in to the comfort of Birkies : > Thanks for linking up to Vis Monday.

So cute! Every item adorable, and you’re a good auntie to share your shoes with her even though she wears a half-size smaller than you do. But you’re a better auntie for teaching her a little about sustainable shopping. Good for you!
