Kamilah’s interview from Grace and Stella

hello Paper Mama readers! My name is Roxana. I am kinda new to blogging , still trying to figure out all the ropes.  i’m excited to be able to share a bit about me and my little corner of the bloggy world.
ms. chelsey and i go way back to when we were young carefree teenagers.

{this is us in 2000?-ish. still in high school.}

fast forward 12 years and i am now a mom of two little ladies (3yo,1.5yo) and jewelry designer. i wanted to share with you today some very insightful fashion advice from my 3 year old. maybe one day she will have her own column in vogue and we can all say it started here.

kamilah is my little 3 year old. she’s always has been very vocal and expressive. this is especially true when it comes to what she wears. it started about a year back, i would get her dressed with whatever i chose and would put up with the screaming. then i realized that was silly. she is her own person and has her own sense of style; a pretty adorable one as it turns out. every morning she chooses her outfit. i usually get her sister dressed and help her only when she asks. as long as it is weather appropriate it’s fine, if we’re staying home for the day anything goes. lately she’s been very interested in watching me while i do my make up/hair/shoes/pick clothes– the whole process. she’s been helping me, it’s an awesome way for us to bond and talk. this morning we talked about her thoughts on the upcoming summers trends and colors:

what do you think this summer’s color should be?

K: blue and white and turquoise and pink shoes and a hat. ok?

do you think that its ok to be mixing patterns in one outfit?
K: mmmm, yup. like polka dots and stripes and flower patterns.

what do you think is this summers must have accessory?
K: wait a minute, like hats? its a surprise.

what’s your favorite color to paint your nails?
K: orange and sparkly and pretty.

summary: as long as you have pretty sparkly nails and a hat it’s all valid. the summer to break all the rules? agreed!
