Kourtney Kardashian Says 7-Year-Old Penelope Disick Picks Her Own Outfits to “Be Herself”

By  | 

Kourtney Kardashian may have some of the best-dressed celebrity kids around, but surprisingly, the 40-year-old reality star is not a helicopter mom when it comes to her kids’ outfit choices. In a recent Instagram post of her 7-year-old “love bug” Penelope Disick, Kourt’s only daughter is wearing bright red cowboy boots matched with a red Guess bucket hat and magenta hoodie.

A fan commented on the photo, asking, “[Is] she the one who chooses her own outfits?”, to which the eldest Kardashian sister responded, “yes … for her to choose and be herself” complete with the cat with heart-eyes emoji.

This isn’t the first time Kourtney’s talked about giving her little ones access to the closet — or the ability to make their own choices about fashion. While her youngest, 5-year-old Reign, isn’t quite old enough to be dressing himself, Kourtney does let him pick out mama’s outfits from time-to-time. Back in August, she posted a pic of her in a white tube top and loong while pants, writing, “I love seeing the outfits he picks out.” She does let Reign choose his own hairstyle though, which is why she clapped back to a hater last fall who said her son “really needs to cut his hair.”

“She really need to not worry about kids that aren’t her own. He is a happy boy,” Kourtney said to dismiss the comment. Weeks later while posting a video of him, she wrote, “Anyone with hair comments is absolutely jealous of these divine locks.”

Don’t tell Kourtney Kardashian how to parent her kids — especially when it comes to letting them express their personal and unique styles.
