I came across this photo on Pinterest. I’m not sure how I feel about it though. What do you think? This girl must be around 7-years old but she has the “vibe” of a 22-year old. Her stance, her haircut, her fancy scarf and the all-black attire looks straight out of something you’d see on a street style blog on ELLE.
Is it good to teach your child fashion sense and good clothing taste? Yes. But what is a good amount and how early on? I already feel like childhoods are getting shorter and shorter as it is. Children grow up too fast. I miss my childhood a lot, and I look back with a smile, remembering running through fields, finding doves in the attic, playing in the garden with my brother… This girl, on the other hand, she’s gonna remember playing with her iPhone and maybe writing her next novel in the fancy Moleskin notebook she’s probably got hidden in her pocket haha! Jokes, jokes :)
But seriously… While I am all pro good style, one has to consider the implications of establishing that kind of relationship with your outer image at such an early age.
