Remember the days of American Girl dolls? If you're like me, you had your favorite one picked out, and - whether you owned that doll or just wished you did - your choice was probably a reflection of your personality.
To help you get in touch with your inner child, our latest series takes fashion inspiration from these elementary school favorites, using them to inspire real-life-wearable outfits you can rock today. Think it can't be done? Watch us prove you wrong...
Felicity Merriman was the spunky animal lover of the American Girl historical dolls. Her stories, set in colonial Williamsburg, Virginia in 1774, gave many of her adventures a very patriotic theme.
Whether you had a Felicity doll or always wanted one, Felicity and her colonial attire can actually be a great source of fashion inspiration! (And no, we aren't talking about those "dress like your doll" matching outfits... but how many of you owned those, too? Be honest!) Below, I've created a series of outfits inspired by Felicity. Scroll down to view them all!
While she wasn't always fond of tea time, Felicity always dressed in pretty floral dresses for the occasion. Channel her style with a cute floral dress and lace-accented cardigan. Wear with oxfords, a horseshoe charm necklace, and dainty floral studs to finish off this super cute, tea time-inspired look.
Equestrian At Heart
If Felicity was your favorite, you probably loved her most for her love for animals, especially horses. Above, I created a modern-day equestrian outfit inspired by Felicity, featuring pieces that are on trend for this season.
To get this look, wear a bow-tie blouse under a plaid blazer, and pull on a pair of skinnies. Choose quilted riding boots for an equestrian flair, and accessorize with a faux leather strap bracelet and mix-and-match horse stud earrings to complete the ensemble.
