So I completely spaced Fashion Friday last week and of all people to remind me...my mother.
She even reminded me of a topic for the week: Wristlets
You see we took Em shopping with us...the usual grocery store, Bed Bath & Beyond, and then Mom wanted to run into DSW to look for some shoes. She had told the girls she'd get them each a "little something" while we were out. Even for El who chose to stay home.
"A Little Something" is very subjective.
It means something completely different to a grandma, a mom, and an almost 7-year old that is way to conscious of what (and soon whom) she is wearing.
At DSW Em found about 1,000 pairs of shoes to try on and thankfully they don't have kids shoes there.
She also screamed a little when she saw the handbag area. (I am NOT exaggerating)
That is where she found her "Little Something"
A pink wristlet for her to carry all her important things...money, chapstick, her fake credit card, a mirror, and a notepad.
For El we chose a few small things that we thought she would like. But when she saw the wristlet she had to have one too. So, we went to Target where she fell in love with...
As an animal lover, it's no surprise she went wtih Zebra stripes.
But wristlets aren't just for little girls. Here are a few that are perfect for spring and summer:
Emilie Sloan Payton Wristlet $21.00
Keep a wristlet as a wallet in your larger bag. Grab it when you head to the Farmer's Market or the park. Invest in one with a little bling for a summer party. Or, get one for your own little fashionista and borrow as needed :).
