Giveaway: $100 LittleMissMatched Gift Card

Kids put together the strangest outfits. You’d think this is because kids can’t be bothered with style (so many more important things to do!), but that’s not the case. Kids care very much about what they wear. They just think about each item individually and not as a collective whole.

If your daughter loves her floral sundress and she loves her Paw Patrol windbreaker than “little kid logic” stands to reason that those two things should look twice as fantastic when paired together. And a plethora of accessories really brings that look home.

A couple of weeks ago, I asked parents to submit pictures of their self-styled kids for the chance to win a $300 gift card from LittleMissMatched. After looking through the photos, I realized that when you let your kid rock her own style, she looks ten times cuter than if she wore the perfectly coordinated outfit you had all picked out.

24 fashion trends invented by adorably mismatched little girls:

1) Pen necklaces go with Hello Kitty anything


2) Flip flops look awesome with winter hats


3) Punky Brewster leg bandanas are back!

I hope this little girl enjoys shopping at LittleMissMatched as much as Mazzy! Please contact to claim your prize.

Ever since Mazzy modeled for them a few months ago, she has gone bonkers for their clothing and accessories which specifically appeal to a young girl’s unique fashion sense.


We’re talking rhinestone pockets, cupcake socks, best friend necklaces, rainbow everything and sparkly heart shaped sunglasses.


Did you know rainbows go with EVERYTHING?


Seriously, their summer line is basically Mazzy’s dream come true.


The best part is that LittleMissMatched’s patterns and color palettes are so loud and fun that somehow it all works together, even though nothing technically matches. Even their socks come in packs of 3s, each one complimenting the other but not quite looking the same.


Better yet, each item seems to have a special feature or a dual purpose. Like reversible dresses, two-sided bathing suits and a waterproof beach bag made of silicone.



Mazzy’s favorite? Her clear jelly sneakers with rainbow shoelaces. She can change her look entirely every time she changes her socks, which don’t have to match either.
