Street Style: Mini Hipsters

Stylish kids in La Mesa

When I was a kid, kids dressed like kids. We wore pastels, itchy sweaters, and Sesame Street themed overalls. In recent years toddlers have begun dressing like tiny adults. It’s not unusual to see 3-year-olds running around with subtle blue and pink streaks in their hair, peplum dresses, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and designer shoes.

I often find myself coveting the wardrobes of the well-dressed little people in San Diego. I blame this new phenomenon entirely on celebrity kids like Suri Cruise and the Jolie-Pitt clan for their absurdly well stocked closets lined with Marc Jacobs and Prada frocks.

Sammy Law

Here are a few seriously stylish San Diego tots.

3-year-old Sammy Law looked uber-cute in his tiny, slate-gray, Hurley skinny jeans and faux tuxedo shirt from Macy's. He wore high-top Converse Chuck Taylors. Sammy’s mom buys most of his stuff at discount retailers like Ross and TJ Maxx.

Adina Smets

Adina Smets, age 5, has an impressive collection of vintage dresses. Her parents buy most of her stuff from thrift stores. Her mom has a great lifestyle blog called Simple here & Vintage there.

Adina wore Target leggings and moccasins, along with a thrifted white Oxford shirt and a hand knitted beanie.

Her mom's favorite place to shop for kiddie clothes, other than thrift shops, is H&M kids and Target for basics.

Sarah Black

Sarah Black, age 8, says she is a jeans and boots kind of girl. Her favorite wardrobe item is a gold locket passed down from her great-great-grandmother.

"If I could dress like anyone, it would be Taylor Swift," Black tells me.

Sarah wore tribal-print American Apparel leggings, a Crewcuts t-shirt, and a hand-me-down denim jean vest and boots.
