Today's guest post is by Amanda from Elskan. I remember featuring a vintage t-shirt from Amanda's Etsy store in one of my Vintage Wishlist post a while back, as well as on La Petite- that's how much I love that little t-shirt! Since then we've become friends, I am actually pretty exited as we will actually get to meet next month. Amanda has impeccable taste, I love everything she pins and most recently she opened up a little online shop with her creations and they are simply awesome. Don't forget to follow her on FB and IG to be updated with all her lasted creations, most are one of kind, so you'll want to be one of the first to know about it! 

I just love Amanda's guest post... what little kid doesn't love to "dress up"....with style everyday!

I feel so honored that you asked me to contribute to your blog while you are on vacation.  Petit a Petit and Family is a favorite daily read of mine, so I hope my guest post will be as fun and engaging as your posts are.

When dressing my 3 year old daughter I like to have fun with her wardrobe and not take things too seriously. We often mix handmade and vintage pieces with new ones, and find style inspiration everywhere.  For this post I was inspired by some of our favorite children's movies! Staying away from anything too "costumey" I tried to focus on finding wearable items that could fit into any child's closet- garments they would be excited to wear. 

 The Jungle Book is a huge hit in our home, and we all find ourselves singing along with Bare Necessities.  I drew inspiration from the charming characters and found animal prints that would look so cute on any kid. And couldn't you just see a modern-day Shanti in that Zara dress?

Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory was my absolute favorite movies as a child. In fact, it still is a favorite. The pieces I chose were inspired by the colors, the whimsical wonderland hiding inside that huge factory, and of course the CANDY.

My daughter Luna loves the magical little girl that is Matilda. Roald Dahl's Matilda is sugar and spice and all things nice, and her sweet & girly style suits her to a t. Think hair bows, florals, peter pan collars and pastels.

This one is for the older kids and definitely a movie I couldn't get enough of growing up. Beetlejuice! Yes, he is totally creepy and pretty gross. But that ghoul had style! You just can't go wrong with black and white stripes (and that red lace dress is like a mini Lydia Deetz original).

xoxo Amanda
