Stella’s Style: Statement Socks



Stella’s fashion choices never cease to impress me. This whole look is beyond adorable, but to be honest, the reason that this picture really speaks to me is because of the socks. I thought that they were the fashion take away here.

This look reminded me of the late 70’s, when I would wear socks like this with my white roller skates that had hot pink wheels. I love that I always wore socks like that. Looking back, I think it was pretty cool to mix a sporty, almost boys’ sock with a super girly outfit.

Cut to 30 years later, and those socks are back in style. And Stella, without any prompting from me, is making a similar fashion choice and is beyond rocking it! And then adding her faux fur boots just takes it to another level.

I’m fashion proud of my toddlerista!!

Have your little ones put together any style creations that made you especially proud lately?

    My daughter hikes her socks up to her belly button as well. I think it is just the cutest thing. She looks quite a bit like you with her hand on her hip :)

    Totally adorable! My four year-old puts together these sorts of styles all the time! :) And the some interesting ones, as well! ;);)

    My girls like to wear two different socks and two different shoes. The first time one of them came out with two different shoes I asked if she was sure it would be comfortable. She looked over her shoulder at me and said, “Mooom! It’s fashion!” She was three! I about died. Now any non-matching items are fashion socks or fashion shoes. I love that they give their look a name!

    Another favorite is the baby legs. They will put together this adorable outfit with baby legs on their arms AND legs. In the middle of an 80 degree day! And rock it!

    She is precious.

    My 4yr old loves to dress like a cowboy. He is in love with his John Deere cowboy boots, and will wear them with almost anything. We are from South, Texas but my husband and I don’t dress country. So he has developed this country style himself. He is going to be a lady killer here in SoCal, my little Texas man.

    My 2 year old loves hats, and his daddy’s shoes. He looks just like him so it doesn’t surprise me. He is at the age where he wants to be just like his brother so he makes sure he is doing just about everything the same.

    I am into the big bows with every outfit for my little girl. I can’t wait to see her personality come out. Your girls are just too cute.

    One of my 18 year-old boys like to dress in short-shorts (like his Dad) would wear in the 70s. He does it so he can show off his two shamrock tattoos above each knee. He’s quite a characted. My other 18 year-old is into vintage T-shirt, and pants that don’t see to stay on even when he wears a belt. Love to see his underwear. LOL
