The cool factor regarding being a tween is that whereas you’re the right age to create your own wardrobe selections, you’re not specifically AN adult nonetheless, thus experimenting with personal vogue isn’t just acceptable, it’s wholeheartedly encouraged. For our annual Back-to-School issue, we asked our resident tween, Apple Martin, to give us a hand with stocking the coinciding Back-to-School shop: She pointed us in the direction of written Terez sweats and tees, a handful of really fun nail polish colors, and a pair of hilarious dinosaur slippers, which were all worked into the easy, fun outfit ideas below. (Her pal, Violet, was our awesome model.) We also included a few throwback favorites like timeless Doc Martens and some truly rad roller skates.
First of all, i need to apologize regarding all the seat-back kicking. Constant thuds to your body part spine aren’t any thanks to relish a flight. And of course, the screaming, the wailing, the screaming again. I’m just so sorry. It was solely the third time I’d flown with Theo—and he’s 2.
I thought I was so prepared! I had his favorite books, a few stuffed animals, a twee wooden puzzle that’s shaped like Swiss cheese with a little mouse attached to a string. Adorable. And also: utterly useless. When we were circling United States President 2 hours past his time of day, nothing seemed to quiet him. That’s when I tried to strap him into his car seat (I know, I know, rookie move), and as you may recall, that was around the same time he knocked into the steward WHO then spilled Cabernet everywhere your wrap. Your white wrap.
What I needed to inform you is: My son and that i won’t be older a plane once more till he’s 34. And I hope this gives you some peace. Meanwhile, please settle for my sincerest apologies—and by all means that, send American state the cleaning bill.
