Feel Like a Kid Again

Being a junior in college pretty much trying to figure out my life plans, it's exhilerating not knowing what's in store! Sometimes though, it's fun to reminisce about how carefree and fun things are as a kid.

J. Crew's Crewcuts lookbook captured my heart (I know Casey, at Teen Fashionista is a fan as well)! The kids all look so adorable in the brand's mix and match preppy basics, and we could all use a little reminder to have fun with fashion sometimes.






My parents used to let me wear whatever I wanted as a youngster & my gramma and aunt used to take me shopping every weekend. My favorite shoes were red glittery mary-janes I called my "Dorothy shoes" & I frequented my gramma's jewelery collection and piled on all of her necklaces.

What was your favorite clothing item growing up?

xoxo, Lauren

growing up i loved this really tacky faux fur coat that was aqua, pink and white polka dotted...i wanted to wear it every day - and we lived in louisianna lol

When I was little I always wanted a pair of "Dorothy" shoes :)

My prized clothing possessions as a little girl were all of my ice skating dresses that I wore to practice. They made me feel like a princess.

Adorable! My mum used to make my clothes, cute crop tops with tassles, etc. As soon as I could I started making my own. At 13 I sewed my first jacket and matching pants.

I used to love wearing dress inside the house when i was young cause i was such a tomboy and i didn't want my friends to see me in them! lol

And i loooove anything jcrew, so it's no surprise that their children's line is just as amazing!

Oh my gosh what stylish kids!

Growing up I used to let my mum dress me... but my favorite item was a yellow sundress with sunflowers printed all over! I wish it still fit me :P

I love looking at kids' clothing - even Zara and Marc Jacobs. They're so adorable!

Haha, when I was little I had this ladybug jumper with a matching cap. I loved wearing it all the time.

SO ADORABLE! I had this pink floppy hat that was bejeweled with red, blue and yellow stones. I felt like such a princess whenever I'd wear it!

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog; I love reading yours!

Overalls and pearl necklaces. I swear I lived in those two things as a kid. Oh, and HUGE bows. Basically I was Blair Waldorf before she even existed!! :)

Aw so adorable! And hmm my favorite thing growing up where these capri khakis I fit into from first grade all the way up to fifth grade. They always fit and I could run around in them!

If I had children, I'd want to dress them in head-to-toe J. Crew, but it's just soooo expensive :(
