Vivian's Style, Summer 2017, Part 2 + Linkup.
You all love when Vivian makes appearances on my blog or my Instagram for that matter. A month ago, I did a post featuring Vivian's Summer Style and today I am doing part two. There will be a part 3 and 4 as well. Dressing a little girl is so much fun. The toddler years are fun and wonderful as it is. But little girls - just like women in general - can be opinionated, sassy, sweet and delightful. And Vivian certainly has her own opinions too, when it comes to a lot of her outfits. Sometimes little girls are hard to dress. It is their way or the high way lol. Vivian looks lovely in bright colors but as you will see in most of these outfits she also looks great in pastels. She rocks baby blue, periwinkle and lavender. And I just love her signature poses!
You can see more outfits and looks of Vivian - that I have not shared on the blog - on my Instagram feed and insta stories on the daily. In there I also post quick videos of her and our adventures. Read on below to see these outfits in detail.
Vivian loves her headbands and has a huge collection of them. This Ombre Lavender Headband with the oversized flowers is one of my favorites she owns and Vivi loves it too. It is by the Cat+Jack line from Target - one of my most favorite kids' clothing brands ever. Her dress is also from Target but from the Genuine Kids line. It is a beautiful Periwinkle Blue with little swimmers on it, with fluttery sleeves and a ruffled neckline. It is a little big on her but it will fit her perfectly next year. Her Royal Blue+Rainbow Striped Sunglasses and Trolls Bracelet are also from Target. I dressed Vivian in this Lavender+Blue Look for her to go to the playground with my dad. Her grandpa takes her to the playground once a week, usually. I know, she is very dressy for the indoor playground. But at least she has on comfortable shoes.

Vivian put this outfit together and she didn't do so bad. It was a little chilly that day. She is one of those kids that gets cold easily. She paired her Tulle Skirt Elsa Dress with her White+Blue Butterfly Leggings and pattern-mixed with her Denim Polka Dot Sneakers. Not bad for a 4-year old.

White Leggings w/ Blue+Lavender Butterflies: Carter's (New).
Blue Chambray Sneakers w/ Tiny White Polka Dots: Wal Mart.
This is one of my favorite outfits of Vivian from all Summer. I love it. That Watermelon Ruffled Top is so cute and fun - can I have it in mom size?! I love that this outfit is monochromatic in navy with pops of red and hot pink. Isn't it nifty how the little drawstring bow on her dark denim shorts pops just like the red of the watermelon?! And the Bow Barrette in her hair has pink polka dots. You originally saw this outfit a couple of months ago where we both styled Summer patterns and floppy hats. Oh, and my cutie pie loves putting bright lipstick on like mama. This time she applied one of my reds.

Navy Blue Large Chiffon Bow Barrette w/ Pink Polka Dots: c/o an Albanian Boutique.
Black Thong Sandals w/ Multi-Colored Crystals: Wal Mart (New).
Just an easy, simple, casual getup for Vivian to wear at home when she plays. This pink, lavender and blue doll castle was a Christmas present last year from her grandparents (my parents). She loves it so much. She plays with this daily, for at least a couple of hours. Vivian has a lot of Barbie dolls and other mini dolls she lets there to sleep, eat, socialize, change clothes, etc. I love how her cute Whale Romper matches the colors of the castle (not on purpose, of course).
Turquoise+Bright Pink Whale Graphic Tank-Style Romper: Cat+Jack via Target.
Purple Shimmery Plastic Clogs: Meijer's.
Viv hates bugs, flies and any mosquito and in this photo she was saying "shoo, shoo" (meaning "go away" to a fly) lol.
This outfit is mostly from Wal Mart (dress, tights and headband) which goes to show you that you don't have to spend a ton to have a well-dressed child. Vivian's outfit here is under $50 bucks from head to toe and she still looks super cute!
