i have teamed up with the lovely girls over on lunch pails and lipstick to give you a leg up on your holiday shopping.  i am sponsoring a $100 giveaway to crew cuts!

if you are a regular here, weeding through our closets, you know that crew cuts is one of our favorite brands. we want to make it one of your favorites too. so head on over to lunch pails and lipstick for a chance to win $100 to crewcuts! yay!

if you are new here, can i just say “welcome”! so glad you are stopping by. take a look around at some of our blue closet readers’ favorites, monday “rad deals” is a big deal and “ruby tuesdays” are also a favorite but be sure not to miss fridays when the blog is dedicated to mama’s style and beauty. we love to dig through the trenches of beauty madness and bring it to you real simple and straight forward.

ruby is wearing one of our favorite sweatshirts from crew cuts, three ways. the second we sprung for this sweatshirt it has been hard to get her to take it off. literally, she has tried to wear it three days in a row. (i was able to squeeze one laundry day in before she swooped it up again) it is that perfect balance of sporty/comfy and special.

sweatshirt $66/ cord shorts $42.50 / glitter desert boots (old from crew cuts but similar here for $118 or old navy has a cute pair on sale for about $9.99 in their sale section) / sequin skirt (old hand me down but very similar here) / hat (borrowed from mama, anthropologie last year)/ leggings $32/ zara boots $59

1 this is the ultimate jacket i dream of my little girl wearing, except we live in southern california where i could not possibly justify this coat, however i think if you live somewhere that dips below 60 degrees this is a classic and i want to see pictures of your little girl in this. preferably with t-strap mary jane shoes, but thats just me./2/3/4/5/6/7 ruby’s faves/8/9/10/11/12/13/14/15/16 ruby lives and dies by crew cuts leggings. they take a beating and never fade, tear or get the dreaded baggy elephant knees. true staples in our house./17 this lightweight windbreaker is much more appropriate for our climate and at $55 it is even more darling./18

check back tomorrow for picks for the little fellas in your life.
