Dress Like the Mini

The Mini and I are off to Mexico today to escape the Portland rain and enjoy a few days at the beach. We will be sure to share highlights from our trip when we return.

Back to business...A few weeks back I posted this photo of the Mini Fashionista and shared an "adult version" of the outfit (blog post here).

Since it was a popular topic, I thought I would share more on the Mini's style.

1) Raincoat-Pluie Pluie, 2) Cardigan and pinstripe shirt- Crewcuts, 3) Yellow Jeans- Old Navy, 4) Driving loafers- Trumpette

If you purchased the yellow jeans and ivory cardigan from the previous post, you can wear them again; this time with a pinstripe shirt, black patent driving loafers and a fun rain coat of your choice. Here are the pieces I would style this outfit with.

Cole Haan Air Penny Driver $106.80

You could top off the look with the Anorak I shared in the last post (here), or you could pair it with this fantastic Penfield Kasson Check Lined Hooded Anorak for $ 219.88.

So, what do you think? Another win for the Mini Fashionista, or does her mom need to work on her styling skills?

P.S. Don't forget you have until the end of the month to save 10% at Serena Italian Imports using the code "fallcardicouture"! 


  1. I enjoy reading your blog each morning, but this post is exactly what I needed! I just recently moved to Seattle and have been on the hunt for a good rain-proof jacket that will keep me dry but doesn't resemble one of those jewel-toned parachute jumpsuits we all wore in the 90s. Thank you!

  2. Katy, so glad we could help you find something chic to keep you dry in Seattle, and many many thanks for being a daily reader. It means so so much to us!

  3. I seriously love this post! Sydney is such a little fashionista!
