Six-Year-Old Dressing and a Smokks {Giveaway}

Yesterday, my six-year-old dressed herself in a mermaid costume, adorned with a handmade rainbow-loom chest strap.  As she wrapped herself in a long line of tiny, multicolor rubber bands she proudly explained the chest-strap’s purpose.  “It’s for my watering can!”, she declared, as she fashioned her creation to attach said watering can to her body at the beach.

A resourceful girl indeed.

I adore her highly creative spirit and believe that she should celebrate childhood through her interesting forms of self-expression whenever possible.  Like previous summers, she is going through a bit of an adjustment period as I’ve organized school appropriate clothing options for her return to the classroom this week.

That’s why I was happy to introduce her to Smokks, a line of incredible stylish and easy to coordinate clothes for girls, ages 4 – 9, and their mamas.  Their dresses reflect a modern take on the lovely smock dress, created from gorgeous and comfortable Liberty print patterns.  Free of buttons, zippers and things that constrict, Smokks offers a simple solution for year-round dressing.

My little-big-girl  loves the feel of the material and the deep pockets for collecting treasures.  We’ve been bringing her Winnie dress in Jack and Charlie Liberty print along to the beach for dinners by the sea.  I happen to love the delicate neckline and the ease of dressing for those rushed school mornings.  And when the autumn briskness sets in –  the layering possibilities are endless.
