I have a question. How do you get boys to wear things that are more stylish and not plastered with dc comics logos? My 1st grader is very particular. He doesn’t like pants that are too baggy, he only likes Tshirts with random sayings or characters on them and he wears his reeboks every day. I try to buy him more stylish things, but he won’t wear them. I guess I can’t make him wear anything and he’s exploring his personal style, blah blah…but man…

The stage where you actually care what you wear to school (at least for me) does not last forever! :D haha

Such fun photos – they both should be in theatre! And, for the record, Maude looks just like you!! A spitting image, as they say!!

I was born in Oakland and went to high school with Tom Hanks, so I was amazed to read that your family was relocating to my home town and that your oldest were attending my alma mater. (My name is actually on a plaque on one of the seats in the new auditorium.) Today, while driving home up Redwood Road, I paused at the intersection of Skyline and Redwood and looked over to see Maude in a group of cross country runners. What a small world it is when you can “meet” a family on a blog and then practically come face-to-face with one of them years later. For the record, she had a big smile on her face and really seemed to be enjoying her afternoon run with the gang! Welcome to my corner of the world.

Maude, thanks for the offbeat, fun look that is oh so cool. My daughter (13) would love every outfit! And in a land of short shorts with uggs, stick straight locks and lots of mascara, it is so good to see a girl dressing hip and doing her own thing! I love it!!!

My sibling was a lot older than me so I was by myself in high school. Do they take comfort that they are in the same school? Or is it not cool to be friends with your sib?

I’m curious how much you curate their look? Did they pull these outfits together themselves? Or with some guidance, gentle prodding in certain directions? Also, do you have any clothing “rules” (i.e., no short skirts! no ripped knees!)?

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 14:15:14 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=40883#comment-736663 I love these posts every year. Your whole family has amazing style! I’m positive I would have had a huge crush on Ralph if we’d been in high school together. And wanted to be best friends with Maude! LOL Also, I have GOT to start shopping at H&M.

Love their outfits! Also kind of happy that my girl wears a uniform so the big decision is what color polo shirt to wear each day!

I can’t imagine the stress of trying to figure out cute outfits every.single.day. It would add an extra layer of stress to our already overwhelmed lives. That said, my kids really do enjoy their monthly “dress down” days and plan their outfits months ahead. Thanks for the ideas!

And thanks for the tips on the Van’s jeans…my 8 yo nephew is growing so fast that he’s actually wearing a size 14 jeans and probably only for a couple of months before they’re too small. My sister is freaking out just a bit.

1. They have great style. 2. I love Maude’s guitar…makes me want to get my own electric axe…why have I never taken the plunge? 3. And I hope movie-loving Ralph takes this as a compliment because that’s how I mean it, but in a couple of those pictures–especially the one of him leaning against the banner in his green hoodie–he totally had an Anthony Michael Hall thing going on. Seriously had to do a double take! And I LOVE AMH and always thought he was cute…so again, compliment. :)

I’m a mum and 33! Nice to know I’m still down with the kids!!!

Ralph and Maude look like they have an awesome relationship!

The floral denim jeans that Maude is wearing are so cute and remind me of jeans my friends and I wore back in the 80s. Firenze, I think? From the Limited? Something like that. :)
