Recently my tween daughter Stacey has been lucky enough to fill her wardrobe full of nice, new Summer clothes, so we thought we would create some ‘Tween Outfit of the Day’ posts so she can show you what she’s been rocking!
We’re starting today with a colour that both myself and Stacey are a little crazy for at the moment (if you read my post on Festival Outfit Ideas last week then you’ll probably have realised this already) … coral.
Layering has been a big thing for years now, and it never seems to go out of fashion. I love that these two Summer tops that my mum bought Stacey for Easter this year are perfect for layering, and look great both together, and with other items of clothing from her wardrobe.
The knitted top that Stacey is wearing is absolutely stunning. It’s a lovely, bright coral shade, but it has tiny flecks of white running through it as well. It has short sleeves and is a cropped style, which is why Stacey likes to wear it over the top of a long vest.
The vest top that Stacey is wearing underneath is just a basic, solid colour one that is slightly longer than the ones she usually wears. I want to get her a similar one in white as well, as I think the knitted top would look fab over a contrasting colour.
Both pieces are from the Young Dimension range at Primark.
Coral Top – Primark – £5.00
Coral Vest – Primark – £1.50
Stacey’s shorts are actually a pair that my mum bought her for Easter last year. They’re from H&M and are a light denim blue with a worn detail on the front. They have an adjustable elasticated waist and sewn-in turn-ups at the hems. Stacey absolutely loves them and wore them loads last Summer, as well as almost every single day the sun has shone this year!
Denim Shorts – H&M (last years style) – similar here – £12.99
Another item that Stacey decided to dig out from last year are these stunning bronze sandals from one of our favourite footwear retailers, Shoe Zone. They’re really pretty and have a butterfly and flower detailing down the front of each one. As you can see from the picture, Stacey has worn these to death, as she says they’re the most comfortable pair of sandals she’s ever owned! I’m gutted that they don’t do them in the next size up for her, otherwise I would have replaced them straight away. Ah well, never mind. We’ll hopefully find another pair just as pretty soon.
Bronze Sandals – Shoe Zone – £9.99
To finish the look, Stacey decided to wear her most treasured possession – her Pandora Princess Tiara Ring. It’s made from sterling silver with a tiara and cubic zirconia set within it. She absolutely loves it because she pooled together the money she got for her birthday and Christmas and bought it herself. I think it makes it extra special, and I plan to buy her a smaller Pandora ring for her next birthday so she can wear it underneath. But shh, don’t tell anyone!
Princess Tiara Ring – Pandora – £40.00
Do any of you guys have a tween daughter?
What would they think of Stacey’s coral combo?
Thanks for reading.
