Back to School Wardrobe

Tween Fashion Prepster Look
Tween Fashion Prepster Look

Hey GirlMoguls – it’s Daisy and I am back with more fashion tips – here’s how you can take those wardrobe basics or staples we talked about and mix and match them into a bunch of totally rad outfits.

  1. The White Tee – who said a white tee needs to be boring?  It doesn’t.  You can go simple by pairing it with jeans and a little cardigan, or if you’re going for a girly look, layer it under a tank dress and pair with leggings.
  2. The Jean Skirt – Artsy or Prepster – you choose.  To go for the artsy look, pair it with a printed top, ling cardigan and throw on a cute hat like a beret.  To totally prep out, tuck in a cute top, layer a cardigan or jacket on top and add in some knee-high socks – argyle preferred!
  3. Leggings – leggings get props for being totally versatile  that means you can wear them so many ways!  So pair them with cool boots, or as a layer under a boho inspired dress or skirt.
  4. There’s nothing plain about the plain tank – there’s a reason you will keep coming back to this piece over and over again.  Layer a spaghetti strap tank over a solid colored short sleeve tee or under a cute cardigan.

In her words:

Describe yourself: I love learning about things.Reading books is ok, but I would rather learn about things by actually looking at, observing them.I take notes in my field journal all the time, about things I observe. I am always taking pictures too.I also like working with my chemistry set. It’s the deluxe one, I just got it for my birthday this year.I have been through like 5 other beginner ones, but this one is more like the real thing – my mom made me promise to be very careful using it. I am already working on my project for this year’s science fair, but its top secret.

My mom and dad set up a real lab for me in the basement.I have my computer, my microscope and all my chemicals down there.It’s totally cool. I can listen to my music and work on my formula for face cream.

Your Hero: My grandmother.She emigrated to America with just about nothing and started a small tacqueira and now she has 4 restaurants and is on all of these committees and she still has time to spend with me and work in her garden.

Someone from History you admire: Dr. Myrna Lodge.She was the first female surgeon to perform open heart surgery.How cool is that?

If you could have lunch with anyone:Stephanie Kwolek – the inventor of Kevlar – it’s used in everything from boats to space ships.

Your favorite place: My Lab.

A place you would like to visit: New York City – I would like to see the Museum of Natural History for myself.

What do you want to be when you grow up:A doctor, or a scientist, or maybe a veterinarian.I can’t decide if I would rather help people or animals.

Why do you want to help out with Weston’s Jr. Civic Pride Committee?My grandmother said it would be good for me to meet other girls my own age and work together on something, instead of spending so much time in her lab.I think she was also responsible for volunteering someone.Also, I think it will be the basis for a great experiment, how the pre-adolescent child performs in small group settings. Perhaps I can write a research paper on it.

Approved

Dr. Smith’s Comments: A bright inquisitive mind. She reminds me of me when I was younger.Her rational, observational approach will be an asset to the team.

Abby’ Comments: Poppy sounds totally smart – perhaps not much of a people person though.We’ll see if we can get her to see people as more than study subjects!

It’s National Women’s History Month

nationalwomensmonthIt’s official GirlMoguls – March is National Women’s History Month, and while we think every month should celebrate women and all the cool things they do, well this our special month.  Even President Obama got in on the action praising  the nation’s “daring, indomitable” women who made the US great.   President Obama praised his Secretary of State, and one-time rival, Hilary Clinton, saying she, “throughout her career, has put millions of cracks in America’s glass ceiling,”

Wondering what the glass ceiling is?  We were too, so we looked it up – here’s the official definition – “It is believed to be an unofficial, invisible barrier that prevents women from advancing in businesses.”  And what this means is that women and for some reasons – some people think its discrimination, other people think its because women  don’t want to work as hard as it takes to get to the top…

Well we think that’s not a good reason,  but when you look around, it’s true, you don’t see a lot of women running big companies, or being president or whatever…So maybe there is something to it.

Anyway, we also liked the fact that the First Lady, Michelle Obama got some props from her husband – he said she was the kind of woman, like many others, who have looked across the dinner table and thought, “I’m smarter than that guy.”

So girls – we may not be women yet, but be strong and be proud…and all month long we’ll be doing more to celebrate National Women’s History Month.
