Secrets of a Mommy Stylist

Posted by Jenny Nguyen on Oct 26th 2023

Although it may come as a surprise to many of you, I have a secret life as a fashion stylist. By day, I'm curating styles for both men and women, but humorously, my favorite 'clients' just happen to be my own kids. This unique career path evolved from a lifelong passion for fashion that ignited when I was just eight years old. Sketching juvenile ideas turned into years of studying and crafting a skill. I received my degree in fashion design, got married, had kids and now I work from home while caring for my children. It's incredible how some childhood dreams can come true! Now that you've gained a glimpse into my background, let's dive into today's blog.

Today I am sharing with you a fall lookbook I’ve created for my baby girl. Can you tell I’m excited about fall fashion? It’s finally getting cooler in Texas, so you bet I’m bringing out all the cozy sweaters.


For our first outfit, I've composed a cute look around a patterned long-sleeve romper, accessorized with a pom-pom beanie and a pair of eyelet trim socks. Ever since I found out I was having a girl, I’ve been obsessed with this soft, dusty, muted pink shade. I’ve been collecting everything I find in this color, including clothing, accessories and room decor.


Bonjour, autumn! This ensemble will transport you straight to the ambiance of the Eiffel Tower. Jesslyn is wearing a ruffle cardigan paired with mustard ribbed leggings. What's even more wonderful is that these leggings come equipped with reinforced knees, a perfect choice for our little crawlers and they only cost me $5! I’m finishing this look with a heart-topped beret, creating a delightful contrast between the mustard and a pop of red.


Our final look is simply perfect for church, a holiday gathering or a family photoshoot. I managed to score a charming grey sweater dress for $7. I've styled it with beige leggings, along with Jesslyn's favorite black flats that she refuses to part with. We've got a little shoe enthusiast in the making!

If you like what you see in my blogs, you'll be thrilled to know that most of my kids' clothing finds its way back to Once Upon A Child once they outgrow it. It's a great way to enjoy stylish clothing without breaking the bank. With stores like Once Upon A Child, you can buy clothing for a fraction of its original cost. This practice has been a financial lifesaver for me, a mom who loves retail therapy. I can't emphasize enough the importance of recycling fashion!
