Chapel loves leggings and these ones are awesome. They are capri length so great for summer and even better - that stripe down the side glows in the dark. I wish they had them in more colors.

SkinnyFaves: these are awesome!

Malika Bourne: M grand duaghter loves her jean jacket and layers is with t-'s for a fun look.

Recently Chapel has gotten into ponytails and braids along with her O'Neil surf top. So wish I could pull off this look!

Added to Your List

Old Navy perforated jelly sandals

Chapel just had to have these jelly sandals and at less than $10 how could I refuse?

Added to Your List


A girl has got to look stylish even when she is lounging around watching TV! This particular robe is from Petit Lem but seems to have been discontinued. Amazon has a nice selection for little girls.

Chapel has a real silver charm bracelet (a great present FYI as her grandparents give her a new charm each birthday and Xmas) but that only gets worn on special occasions. She wears cheaper charm bracelets all the time. You can get good ones on Amazon or at The Gap.

Black & White / Mod Look

We went through a very pink phase but Chapel is now into other colors including black & white. Love this mod look she pulled together. The dress is from Gap Kids.

Krista: This might be my favorite look so far...girlfriend is rockin it!

Added to Your List

American Apparel Tricot Leggings

I love these American Apparel leggings. Chapel has 2 pairs and I ended up getting 2 pairs for myself. Yet another style pick that my 4 year old daughter drove.

Added to Your List

Colors Hair Extensionis

Chapel claims these are "real hair" but they are obviously synthetic colored hair that can be attached with any beret. I'm not really a fan but they make her very happy.

Added to Your List

Ponchos and Capes

Chapel loves her poncho - a grey version of this poncho that costs only $14 from Target. She is also super excited to wear a cape as part of her private school uniform when she starts Kindergarten in the Fall of 2012.

Audrey Hepburn

It is only April but Chapel already knows what she will be for Halloween this year - Audrey Hepburn. No more cheap princess costumes for my little girl. I found this mini Audrey Hepburn dress on Etsy.

Pink "Real" Cowboy Boots

Glove urethane upper and shaft, Metal Toe Rand, Glove urethane shaft...more

I found this cowboy boots on Amazon for $40. Chapel wears them all the time and they are still in good shape nearly 1 year later.

Malika Bourne: My grand daughters love their boots even with a skirt.

Added to Your List

Mixing Prints

A typical outfit pulled together by Chapel for preschool. A stripped top + flower-print skits + pink cowboy boots = perfection.

Added to Your List

Hello Kitty Knee High Socks

These were first purchased to go with the pink cowboy boots so Hello Kitty peaks out the top. Chapel now wears these with skirts and dresses in lieu of stockings. I have to admit - they are pretty cute but no one over 10 should probably wear them.

Added to Your List

Polka Dots

This red pokka dot dress is a favorite. Anything polka dot is stylish according to Chapel.

Added to Your List

Hello Kitty Bikini

I have mixed feelings about my little girl wearing a bikini but Chapel has her heart set on a Hello Kitty bikini for her 5th birthday.

Added to Your List

Flapper Girl Look

This was the costume for Halloween 2011 and an outfit she still likes to put on. I heard the flapper look is back so Chapel was ahead of the trend.

Added to Your List


Chapel is far more into her straw fedora than any of the colorful sun hats we bought her. Add some sunglasses is she glammed up for the sun.

Added to Your List

Mexicali Prints

I bought this dress at the Cabo airport after a girls trip (translation: a little hungover and in need of presents for my kids.) She pairs it with sparkly red Mary Janes and a fashion statement is made!

What should I add to this list?
