I'm not the biggest fan of the traditional smocked peter pan collared kid clothes. I recognize that it can be adorable when I see it on other children, but it is far too proper and buttoned-up for any child of mine!
I have always admired a child's sense of adventure when dressing! They have no idea what is appropriate and right, so they simply put on what they love. It becomes a style of their own, a truly unique combination.
That is what I really love about fashion..........it can be a real form of self-expression. Honestly I wish that as adults we had the confidence to do the same!
O'Neill girls is a line of clothing that embraces this sense of adventure and experimentation. The company is rich with tradition, founded in San Franscisco in 1952, and promotes an active lifestyle.
I was lucky enough to be contacted by them and sent some images of their Fall lookbook, and then sent some goodies from the collection! I'm so excited to share!
I think that the line is amazing! Whimsical and sweet, but tough and rugged at the same time. The pieces are versatile: great for mixing, matching, and layering. The fabrics are soft, cozy, and come in great color combinations.
Above are looks for Holiday. Below are images of some of my favorite pieces available now.
Here is the adorable dress that I am giving away. The Gina Dress is jersey on top, woven on bottom, and has a cute bow detail across the back. It is a size small, which is the equivalent to about a 7. With black tights, a pair of boots, and a cardigan sweater.........I wish my Carson was big enough to wear it!
To enter the giveaway simply visit the O'Neill Girls Website here, pick your favorite piece, and 'like' their Facebook page here. Then, leave ME a comment with the name of the piece that you picked and your email address. I will have my little helper randomly pull a name from a basket, and we will announce the winner of the Gina Dress next Friday.
(Comments can be left anytime between now and next Thursday at midnight & please limit one entry per person, thanks!)
