If you’ve ever seen any photo of Harlan, you know the the girl loves fashion. She’s gotten to the age when she wants to go shopping with me to help me pick out clothes. It doesn’t matter who we are buying for, she just wants to be able to express her opinion on it. She loves to shop for herself and walk around the store telling everyone she’s a fashion designer and coming up to me asking if “this outfit looks good together?” Yes, these are words from my three year-old.

Other than skirts and dresses that “twirl”, Harlan is obsessed with shoes. She has to wear the same red shoes during the week as a part of her preschool uniform, but when she gets home she immediately throws them on to put on a pink or a sparkly pair. This little lady is 100% all girl and I love every second of it.

Harlan’s newfound love of fashion has me even more excited to shop for the girls. I love checking out the newest trends in kids clothing so that I can share it with Harlan.

Last month I had a chance to check out the Petite Parade Fashion show here in NYC. The show gave us a sneak peek at all of the latest fashions for kids that are hitting stores this fall. Stride Rite, famous for their adorable lines of kids shoes, showed off their fall fashions from their brands, Keds, Sperry, and Saucony.


Bright colors are in for fall as evident in all of the cute shoes shown off by even cuter models! Whether it’s pops of color on a neutral background or color blocking to stand out in the crowd, these collections will definitely brighten up your day.

I love the subtle hints of pink in these Sperry Chelsea boots. A definite must for Harlan this fall.  boots

The neon yellow on these Saucony Kinvara shoes will definitely get them noticed going back to school in the fall!


You know how much Harlan loves her tutus. Pair it with these Stride Rite StarPower shoes (that light up) and she will be ready to shine!  Stride Rite's petitePARADE Showcase

There were so many favorites from the show that I immediately went home to Harlan to show her some of my favorites. We are now both anxiously awaiting Stride Rite’s fall line so we can snag a few pairs of these gorgeous bright shoes!
