“I found I was more confident when I stopped trying to be someone else’s definition of beautiful and started being my own.” – Remington Miller
I have always loved it when my kids want to express themselves, especially when they do it through their own unique style.
Today, I wanted to celebrate each of their individual personalities and styles.
Dalton – my oldest, has just returned from a mission and he is just getting back into the swing of things. He recently started school and is working part time…He has always loved fashion and style, although now I see it coming out more and more as he is interested in shoes, clothes and even having different jackets that go with different clothes.
Canyon – the next oldest, is 14 and he has his own very unique style too. He looks sharp in glasses and loves having the most up to date hair styles, and clothes. In fact, he is always looking for something that his friends aren’t wearing and also likes to go shopping with me.
Jack – the second to youngest, loves wearing sweats, jeans and a nice shirt. He puts together his own outfit combinations and I love that he is not afraid to experiment. He doesn’t like shopping so much, but he does love it when we buy him clothes. He recently asked if I would buy him some dress sweaters so that he can dress up more – and he has a maroon and black velvet smoking jacket that is amazing.
Reiken – the youngest, loves anything Minecraft or Star Wars. He is not a fan of getting clothes as gifts (unless they are swim shorts or something he considers fun). He doesn’t mind going shopping with me when he is on his own and mainly because he has figured out that I will buy him a treat if he is good.
These pictures were taken before Christmas. I had “suggested” that we all wear some form of target or plaid, and even the shirts that were picked out express a little of each of their individual personalities. We had fun trying to create some not-so-ordinary shots…I am blessed to have such an amazing family!
I believe that it is important to let our children find their own unique styles, even if they hit some bumps along the way! Celebrate yours and your children’s individuality too!
