The frigid winter months here at Sophias Style headquarters in Nebraska are always hard for me to deal with. The bitter cold winds, dirty slush on the streets and hours cooped up inside are not my favorite. Come back summer!

Still, there are things to look forward to during the winter – Christmas, snuggling with loved ones and fabulous winter coats! For sure SophiasStyle.com has plenty of affordable girls coats that will keep your little girl warm and trendy this winter.

Now I can add another thing to my list of fun things about winter –check out this new Knitwits girls outerwear we just got in last week. How cute will your little girl (or boy!) look in this knitted moose stocking cap by? It’s even got cute little antlers! We also have unicorn, dragon, monkey, kitten and frog stocking caps. Matching mittens for each animal are available for purchase too.

These adorable kids outerwear pieces will certainly bring some fun and warmth to those gloomy winter months and they make great holiday gifts!

Just Dance!

dance-skirt__1

As a little girl I was always jealous of girls who danced. I admired all the pretty girls dancewear – the sparkly leotards, the fluffy tutus – and wished I could be graceful too. Unfortunately, I was more a girl of the shy, tomboy, clumsy variety. Except for one summer when I was six years old I took a dance class at our local community center…

The big finale of my summer dance class had two performances: a slow, interpretive number about a butterfly and a high energy dance to the ever-popular song “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from the movie Mary Poppins. (In case you were wondering, yes I had to look up how to spell it!) I was so excited for the big show. My sister, my mother and her friend Alice even came to watch.

For the first song my dance group decided we would be caterpillars who grew into beautiful butterflies. Apparently I spaced off during that discussion. I decided to be a sleeping butterfly instead of flying away. As each of my classmates fluttered away I lay down and went to sleep. I must have looked so silly and my fellow dancers just look confused. My mom videotaped the performance, so I got to re-live it over and over.

My second performance started off great but ended in even more embarrassment. We were running, jumping and cart wheeling to the music like crazy – I loved it! At the very end I cart wheeled right into one of my fellow dancers. We both toppled over and sat stunned as the music ended. It was a real America’s Funniest Home Videos moment for sure.

So all in all, my experience with dance could have gone better. But honestly, it couldn’t have been any more fun either! And isn’t that what it’s all about when you’re a little girl?

Outfit your tiny dancer in girls dance shoes and dancewear from SophiasStyle.com and just encourage her to have fun. She’ll make great memories on stage and feel like a star.

Does your little girl dance? Share a memorable dancing moment with us!

Tips To Pick A Christmas Dress

pink-xmas-dress__1

Less than eight weeks until Christmas is upon us – yikes! Those weeks will fly by and I am not even close to ready. I’ve only bought one gift so far, and have no idea what my plans are for the holidays. I’m sure a lot of you can sympathize. It seems the holidays creep up on us quicker and quicker every year.

Still, as long as we start now there’s still plenty of time to pull everything together. One of those details might be her Christmas dress. Of course you want a beautiful, boutique Christmas dress at an affordable price, (and SophiasStyle.com has got you covered here!) but there is more to consider than just cost.

Consider the age of the child you are buying for. Is it a young girl who will be running around playing all day? If so, a shorter dress (knee or tea length) is a good bet. This way she won’t drag it all over the floor or trip over a long dress. Longer styles generally work better for older girls – they can better pull off a long, elegant look.

Also think about the climate you live in. If temperatures are sub-freezing, a long-sleeved dress might work best. If your Christmas tree is a palm tree, opt for short sleeves. Just think about what she will be most comfortable in.

Think outside the “red and green mold.” A cute Christmas dress can still be festive and appropriate even if it’s not traditional holiday colors. The shape and material are what really make Christmas dresses special. This pink and brown taffeta dress is perfect for a holiday occasion.

SophiasStyle.com has got every length, sleeve and color you need to make her holiday look a great one. Now if only we could hang those Christmas lights for you!

Wedding Planning Isn’t Just for Women | SophiasStyle.com

black-flowergirl-dress__1

I’ve learned there are lots of surprises that come up when you are planning your wedding. For example, while planning our guest list, my fiancée and I have found that we’ve got a lot more distant relatives than we thought. I mean really, do we have to invite my mom’s third cousin whose last name we can’t even remember? The small affair we were dreaming of is quickly ballooning into an event with loads of guests.

One much more pleasant surprise is how involved my fiancée has been in the wedding planning process. I always thought men were supposed to be bored to tears by all this wedding preparation. However, all the latest bridal magazines and articles will tell you that more and more men are helping plan their weddings. I think it’s great. I’ve always hated the idea that it is supposed to be “my day.” It is our wedding and I think it my fiancée should get the chance to be involved in the details of our special day.

Time is also a big factor. My fiancée and I are both busy with work, school and our everyday lives. A wedding is too big of an event for just one person to plan – we need both sets of our hands in just to cover the bases!

Alright, so maybe he doesn’t jump up and down at the mention of flower girl dresses or centerpiece arrangements, but my fiancée is definitely willing to be involved. We toured several reception venues together before we made a decision and we also picked out our photographer as a team. The other day he called to ask if there were any phone calls he could make to help out. He booked our DJ over his lunch break so now we can cross that off our list.

Of course, there are some things my fiancée just won’t touch – like the flower girl dress. Luckily, that was an easy job for me anyway. SophiasStyle.com has tons of affordable flowergirl dresses so we got a great dress and saved money. I’m glad we found a cheap flower girl dress but didn’t sacrifice any quality or style.

All in all, planning our wedding has been a fun experience – and we’ve still got five months to go! I’ll keep you posted.

What do you think about men and wedding planning? How involved was your groom?
