Style by a 4 Year Old

Have you ever given a 4 year old summer clothes in the middle of winter? Years ago I did this to my daughter – you can guess what happened…So excited to have pretty new clothes they had to be worn instantly regardless of cold temperatures outside!ย But you know what – coupled with thick stockings and a winter top underneath the whole outfit really looked quite good!

So, style by aย 4 year old it is and wearing summer in winter is a concept I continue to adopt!

You will have seen this summer dress bought in New Zealand in October – see: European Design Discovery Down Under

Dress by Dotti - FunkyForty…and now see how I wore it just the other day – converting it into a winter dress:

3 Good reasons for wearing Summer in Winter:

  1. It extends your winter wardrobe without having to buy new stuff
  2. Means you get to wear your favourite summer pieces a little longer
  3. Or, that you can wear the new Spring/Summer collection before winter finishes ๐Ÿ˜‰


3 Good reasons for learning style from a 4 Year Old:

  1. Their ideas are always fresh and without prejudice
  2. Will encourage you to move away from your set ideas
  3. A good excuse to have a giggle together as the years go by ๐Ÿ™‚
