Look who’s going mad for plaid! Trendsetting brothers Kingston and Zuma Rossdale rocked skinny and sweatpant versions of the fun bottoms while out and about in Los Angeles earlier this year. And Finn Burns wore a cargo pair — his fave style — during a stroll with dad Ed Burns in New York City on Oct. 5.

Zuma probably does. Good for him! I have seen other pictures of him with some nail polish on. Nailpolish on children is so cute….now that they make the safe kinds 🙂

I know my 4 year old son asks his sister to paint his nails when she does hers so I bought him a light blue, hey why not, it comes off 🙂

Lisa he probably does. Their mother said she wants them to have their own quirky style yet so far it’s her style we see on them..lol!

Is it really a “trend” if Gwen S’s two children are practically the only ones wearing it …. of course, she is an amazing trendsetter so maybe this look will go viral soon!
