My Kid's Style: The Year of the Bow Tie

Our girls all have their own sense of style. It’s so fun to see what catches their eye and becomes their newest trend. The tween turned 10 just a few weeks ago and officially launched the year of the bow tie.

She had a Doctor Who themed birthday, which (of course) required a bow tie. She was so excited when I gave her the shiny, sequined Halloween prop to wear at her party. And so, she wears a bow tie now. Bow ties are cool.

The bow tie did not come off for days. She wears it at home. She wears it at school. She wears it out and about. It goes with pajamas, casual clothes, dressy clothes or over her coat.

I love that she is confident enough to rock her bow tie everywhere she goes. I love that she is geeky enough to want to in the first place. Mostly, though, I love that she has her own sense of style, now heavily featuring a bow tie and sequins.

The bow tie has rekindled an intense love of sequins. We have sequins on on shirts and shoes; pants and skirts. She got silver sequined boots for her birthday and a silver sequined skirt and hoodie for Christmas. I’m just glad she has things to match the bow tie now.

Because I’m pretty sure it isn’t going away any time soon.
