I find myself telling my soon-to-be eleven year old tween to be a kid as long as she can. We find that a lot of clothing made for her age group is too grown up for how I’d like her to look. She is nearly as tall as me and maturing very quickly, but I’m not ready for her to dress like an adult yet, so we try to stick with fun, funky colours and patterns.

It’s possible to create a look that doesn’t make her look babyish and still look her age, and we find Minti to be the perfect solution for mixing and matching patterns with their gorgeous bright colours and versatile pieces that can create a cute, funky tween look which brings out the child within.

I think it’s important to keep the child within alive. There is nothing better than a child’s mind full of dreams, hope and that beautiful, innocent magic. Add a little colour to your Tween’s wardrobe with Minti. Try not to let them fall into that all BLACK world, they have plenty of time to do that when they hit adulthood. Keep them kids as long as you can because they grow up way too quick as it is.

Mother to teen, tween and threenanger… Stumbling through this thing called motherhood while following my passion for photography, fashion and anything else I can fit into that time where a mother has barely time to scratch herself or even have a toilet trip by herself… In between running to paddocks and moving machinery #farmlife #motherhood
