Mini Style | Oh Hey, It's Kenzie!

Last week, I talked about letting my children have their own unique style. I really only have a couple of rules when it comes to clothes, and those are, nothing revealing and nothing that degrades them in any way (example: a shirt that says something like "talk into my microphones" across the breasts.) Luckily, nothing like either of those have ever been an issue, but there was a time when Mackenzie used to love to wear socks with tights with sandals and jean skirts that drove me crazy. The girl is a toothpick, so it wasn't her best look. But I have always chosen to pick my battles, and in doing so, I have really been able to see each of  my kids' personalities shine.

Although I don't always love what Mackenzie wears, there's not a place we go that she isn't stopped by someone who compliments her on her hair or her style. So, I know it's nothing more than the mom side of me who has outgrown some of those young people stores (but, hey, I did let her pierce her nose last year, so that should win me some kind of cool mom award, right?).

Mackenzie has definitely grown into a beautiful young lady, and although she's hardly "mini" anymore, I like to think that allowing her to make her own choices in so many areas, including her sense of style, has made her the confident, creative, trend setter (as opposed to a follower), that she is today. Girl knows just what she wants!

On a side note: Look at that snow! We almost always have the most pathetic snow falls, which result in the shutting down of EV-ER-Y-THING... including school! So, today is a snow day for us! Did I mention that the kids were already out last Friday, Monday (MLK holiday), and Tuesday too? Yep, after already being out for 2 weeks, less than a month ago, for Christmas! That's how we roll here in NC!
