Yes! I do this for parents who feel like they'd like to spend time with their kids after work and on the weekends instead of time shopping for them. Or, parents who would love their child to be as well dressed as they are without spending an unreasonable amount. I style those kids. I create an entire seasonal wardrobe that mixes and matches easily, is functional and indicative of your child's personal style. Then, I create outfits that can be accessed via your personal webpage so that mom, dad, the nanny or anyone else can see how to easily style an outfit. And it's fun!

You can imagine how excited I was when I learned about The Rookery Kids. Owner and Seattle-ite Sophia Ferrel curates hip, quality pre-loved kids clothing for her online store. That's right: you're shopping local and yet you can easily do it from your computer. Or, I can do it for you, of course.

Photographer Selena Kearney and I recently visited Rookery and I had the opportunity to style several outfits from some of my favorite pieces. Even better, you, Dear Reader, can purchase them at a discount.

When you find yourself arguing with your child over what to wear each day, think about the key influencers in your child's life. In our house, my son is always THRILLED to have his outfit resemble his dad's. Lots of boys like to have their haircut similar to their dad, for instance.

Anyway, we refer to button up shirts with collars as "Dad's shirts," and our son LOVES to wear them. Try it at your own house. Select something in your child's wardrobe that you'd like him or her to wear. Perhaps she doesn't like coats. Maybe a "mom's coat," that is the same color or style as mom's will inspire her to try one more often.
