Thank you to Smarty Girl for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts shared are my own.
My sweet little girl is a firecracker! She and her brother are complete opposites, and she is already giving me a run for my money. My son has always been cautious, and Baby S is a wild and free spirit, always running toward the action. She loves girly things, and I enjoy dressing her up, but I can already tell that one day, she's going to fight me on that. She loves her big bro, and always wants to be with him and play with his 'boy toys,' if there is such a thing. I want both of my kids to grow up knowing that they can be whoever they want to be, and that gender stereotypes don't exist in our family.
In an effort to show girls that they can be anything they want to be, Emilee Palomino created Smarty Girl leggings. These adorable leggings offer boyish designs for girly girls, and send a message that girls can love dinosaurs, digging in the dirt, baking, playing with dolls- all of it! Dinosaurs aren't just for boys, and dolls aren't just for girls. Plus- girls deserve more options on their clothing than just hearts and flowers.
Young girls aspire to be what they see.
That's why Emilee invented leggings that would empower her daughter to be whatever the heck she wants to be. (Bonus: Running the business has empowered Emilee.)
The Smarty Girl brand encompasses Emilee's greatest passions — motherhood, art, fashion, female empowerment, and education.
Smarty Girl leggings are adorable and comfortable!
Smarty Girl leggings are lovingly made and benefit both people and the planet. They're made from Certified Organic Cotton and made with dyes that don't contain heavy metal toxins or other yucky stuff that parents don't want touching their kids. Only good stuff is good enough for Smarty Girl! The leggings are stretchy but durable, and they are extra soft. Your little ones will love wearing them!
We tried a pair of Smarty Girl leggings in a 12-18 mo size. S is 17 months, and for toddlers, it can be hard to know which size to go with when they're so close to the next phase. I would recommend sizing up. These do fit S, but they just fit, and the length of the legs wound up being a little too short. Still perfect for the end of summer.
Totally comfy and totally sweet!
Big Bro B thought it was so cool that his 'sissy' had dinosaurs on her leggings. A California based artist hand illustrated the prints for Smarty Girl leggings and brought Emilee's vision for boyish designs for girls to life. It's awesome to see dinosaurs on leggings for girls, in colors that girls love to wear! I love this design and am hoping that Smarty Girl will roll out with some other prints like planes, trains, cars, etc.
Smarty Girl leggings provided all-day comfort and fun!
Baby S comfortably wore her Smarty Girl leggings all day. We received lots of compliments on them from neighbors and even strangers in the grocery store! S wore them at home, at the park, in the car, and loved pointing to the design and asking about the colors and objects on the leggings.
My hope is that one day, my baby girl will know that she is beautiful, she is smart, and that she can conquer the world. My prayer for both of my children is that they'll grow up loving themselves, and not be afraid to be who they are- and that's whoever they want to be... not trying to fit into a mold that society lays out for them to step into. I give Emilee a lot of credit for creating such a fun, smart, empowering article of clothing that sends a big message to girls! Well done!
Girly dinosaurs designed with future paleontologists in mind. Illustrated exclusively for Smarty Girl. Printed by hand on organic cotton. $18
