Beth’s Best highlights the girl’s first week back to school. Sophia, Catherine and Julia are all on the same bus and can’t wait to share the day’s experiences. Each of the girls chose a special outfit for their first day and each day for the remainder of the week, they chose their outfits together. They love sharing their 18 inch doll clothes. Because it is so chilly in the morning when she catches the bus, Sophia wanted to wear a sweatshirt she borrowed from Carly. SPHD-WH looked super cute over her embroidered tank top for 18″ dolls SPTT-HP-NE. As it warmed up during the day, she could just tuck it into her carry bag. Navy denim jeggings SPJ-DN are always comfy and Sophia loves to just put them on with everything. No need to borrow these as she has several pair in her 18 inch doll clothes wardrobe. Wearing white patent flats for 18in dolls SUB-WH is her final hurrah before fall. She opted for a sport sack DNDB-ST in lieu of a traditional 18″ backpack for the first few days until she had to carry her books home! Julia’s look was very casual with her 18″ black sequin trimmed leggings DNL-SQ-BK and chambray 18″ doll shirt SPDS-PB. Fortunately, Sophia was willing to let her borrow the shirt as long as she could use the owl lunch bag sometime! Casual ballerina flats for 18 in dolls are a must with all the walking she does getting to her classes. She chose SBFT-SL to keep her style neutral. Pink being one of her favorite colors, she loves her backpack, MABP-HP and owl lunch sack DNLB-PO. Catherine couldn’t wait to wear something more fall-like and chose something she purchased at the new boutique in town. The fray hem jeans for 18″ dolls were so trendy and the peplum hem knit 18in doll shirt so unique, she had to wear them during the first week of school. DRRHS-FJ was the perfect choice and she felt great wearing this 2 piece jeans set that fit American Girl dolls. All in all, the gals had a super first few days at school and feel that the school year is off to a great start. How were your first days back at school? Hoping that your school year is off to a great start too!
The end of August is rapidly approaching and that means Beth’s Best takes the 18″ dolls Back to School Shopping! It is rivaled only by shopping for school supplies, which the girls may be doing soon. Fortunately for Sophia, Julia and Catherine, there was a new boutique that opened with a great selection of Back to School outfits for 18″ dolls. Catherine was immediately drawn to a super cute 2 piece leggings set DRTSD-BK for 18 inch dolls. The long sleeve tunic length top has a scooped neckline with an oversized matching satin bow detail. It is just perfect for the cooler fall temperatures ahead and the sequin trimmed black leggings were just her style. A special treat was the purchase of a zebra print handbag SH-ABZ and a pair of jeweled toe ballerina flats that fit 18″ dolls S1LJ-BY. While styled like a shoulder bag, the purse is rounded with the large strap built into the design and the hot pink satin trim just pops against the black and white print. DRTLP-IS, black leather pants, a multicolored sweater and infinity scarf 3 piece pants outfit for 18in dolls was Julia’s first choice. She loved the look as a pants, sweater, accessory 3 piece set and was very excited to wear these leather pants with a variety of other American Girl sized shirts. Her splurge was the hot pink oversized handbag DNLP-HP that will hold just about all her “stuff”. She loved the quilted detail and longer shoulder straps that won’t slip off her shoulder. Her comfy leopard print 18″ doll ballet flats SBFT-AN-TN that she wears all the time looked super cute with this outfit. A total winner! Sophia was the mystery shopper and the gals were not sure what she scampered off and purchased when they were not looking. Her favorite olive green military style 18″ doll jacket SPMJ-OL is a piece that she wears with everything from her leggings, SPJ-DN to skirts…whatever her mood. Both Catherine and Julia were guessing if she was drawn to some of the display outfits, DRFPJ-PT, the coral peplum top and floral jeans number or the 18″ olive pants and plaid shirt 2 piece set DROSC-PB? Maybe the hot pink 18″ cowgirl boots, SCB-HP and matching outfit jeggings and plaid shirt set DRPB-JB. Well, Sophia will just have to wait until Catherine and Julia are done trying on clothes, although they were pretty happy with the first outfits they tried on. For all of you headed back to school, have fun shopping for clothing that fits your American Girl 18 inch dolls.
Beth’s Best is highlighting preseason soccer practice for our 18” dolls. As much as the girls are loving summer vacation, Sophia and Carly are looking forward to preseason soccer practice at the new middle school field. For now, they are only having practice once daily, but as the school year gets closer, there will be the dreaded “two-a-days”. This means early morning practice and a late afternoon practice and lots of icing in between! Today Carly’s mom drove Sophia and Carly to the fields. Carly was happy to be wearing last year’s jersey DRSO-ST. The bright star pattern jersey in this 18in doll 3 piece soccer outfit was fitting for the team name, The Superstars. Her feet didn’t grow much this summer so her last season’s black cleats for 18”dolls SSC still fit even under the heavy soccer socks, DNSK-BK. Sophia’s travel team uniform 3 piece soccer set for 18 inch dolls, DRSO-FS has a shimmery hot pink jersey which matched perfectly with the fuchsia 18” doll soccer shoes SSC-FS they wore.
Not long after being dropped off at the fields and going through the warm up exercises, the sky became very dark and it began to pour. Fortunately, Carly’s mom had been watching the weather and the afternoon practice was going to be a washout! While heading back up to the school, she stopped and picked up Julia and Catherine so that the girls could go to the movies. What a surprise to see Julia and Catherine running onto the field in their rain gear and umbrellas to help cover their friends from the pouring rain. Julia came all decked out in her 18in doll yellow raincoat slicker DRRC-YL and matching yellow patent rain boots for 18” dolls SSRW-YL. The colorful pastel plaid lining is just so adorable and compliments her JL-U-HP pink umbrella sized for American Girl dolls. She quickly got Carly underneath so that she wouldn’t get soaked! Catherine, in her purple poncho and plaid rubber wellies DRRP-PW, 2 piece outer wear set for 18 inch dolls, had Sophia underneath her pink polka dot umbrella JL-U-PD in a flash, but Sophia knew she had a towel in her gym bag…probably now soaked too!!! What’s a little rain among friends! They would dry off in the movie theater. Can you guess what movie they saw?
