I know you're a modern mom who cares about her family, has a great sense of style and loves to have fun. We already have so much in common. Don't miss a post and be sure to sign up for blog updates!
I received this question from a reader the other day about girls and clothing. I thought it would make a great topic for a blog post because, honestly, it’s something I’ve struggled with too.
These days my girls are drooling over Brandy Melville clothes…have you heard of this brand? It’s one of the hottest lines of teen clothing right now, but I think their styles and marketing are contributing to such an unhealthy and unrealistic body image for our daughters.

This post was originally published in September, and I wanted to give you a winter update. Joe Fresh has partnered with YummyMummy.ca to give customers a 25% online discount with the code YUMMY25. You can’t beat that! This code is good until November 19th.
As the youngest in a family of three girls, I grew up wearing my sisters’ clothes. Whether it was a prom dress, dance costume or a pair of Peter Pan Getaway Boots (can you believe we wore those?), I never questioned my mother when she insisted that I share clothes with my sisters. For that reason, shopping at consignment stores comes very naturally to me.
When it comes to gift giving for teens and tweens, I tend to lean towards practical gifts, like a gift card to a store that you know they love. In recent years, we’ve also enjoyed giving experiences to special friends – like tickets to a concert or taking a friend to an attraction or theme park.
Athleta is one of my favorite places to buy work out clothes, so you can imagine how excited I was to learn that the store now has a line of active wear for young girls.
Athleta Girl is designed for girls between the ages of 6-14 with the sporty girl in mind, but this stuff is cute enough that it can be worn anywhere!
Family photos stress me out!! If you watch the show Modern Family, you might remember the episode where Claire spends the whole day worrying about everybody wearing white. She’s so worried they’re going to get their white outfits dirty before the photos even start.
