Summer Shopping at P.S. from Aeropostale

16 May

My girls love to shop and they love to pick their own outfits.  The change of seasons means new clothes and switching out their closets.  Last weekend my youngest and I headed to an Epic Shopping event at P.S. from Aeropostale hosted by Brianne, founder of Stroller in the City.  It was a warm day so we had summer clothes and open toes on our mind.


When we arrived my daughter started coloring with friends and had a snack from Treathouse while I checked out the latest styles.   Once she was ready to shop, she headed straight to the bright, shiny, and colorful sandals (naturally since she is a little girl who LOVES her shoes).   The sandals were so cute, I had to grab a pair for my girls.    Then she went on to find her “favorite” summer outfit (with a little styling help from Brianne) and chose a tiered tank in white with the high-waisted paisley woven shorts in summer citrus.  On our way to the checkout, she noticed the accessories and hair coloring sticks.  After, we checked out, we were able to hit the photo booth to capture our fun, Mother-Daughter Epic Shopping adventure.


It was a wonderful morning, and I was excited to learn about P.S. from Aeropostale.  I had never shopped there for my girls and found so many great styles for summer.  Not to mention the sales were great too.

20121203-222755.jpgSince the arrival of Chippy-Snowflake, our adopted elf, my girls can’t stop talking about what is on their “list”. We decided to make our list on this adorable My Christmas Wish List template by cutting out pictures from magazines or telling me what they want. On their list this year:

1. Stompeez slippers: My daughter became obsessed with these fun slippers after seeing a neighbor walking around with them. You can find them at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for $19.99.

2. Pink Computer: I didn’t even know where to begin with this request but did find the VTech InnoTab 2 S Wi- Fi leaning tablet in pink which offers 15 ready-to-use apps, including Wish List Maker—and 2 free downloads—for hours of educational fun.

3. Melissa and Doug My Own Mailbox:

Picture 94. American Girl Doll and Girl Clothes: My girls love their bitty baby and love to dress like them so they have asked for matching outfits. One outfit they like is the Fall Flowers for Dolls and Girls.

5. Disney Princess Dress-Up clothes: You can find my 2 1/2 year old in a tutu and tinkerbell costume 5-out of 7 days. This year she has asked for sleeping beauty while my older daughter asked for Cinderella. A little girl can never have too many dress-up clothes for pretend play 🙂

7. Newly Added is this adorable Piccolini doll from Sophie and Lili.  My daughter became obsessed when she saw me looking at it on Piccolini’s Facebook Page.  Santa may even stuff their stockings with a matching Piccolini Tee.
