While August 1st celebrates many family-centric unofficial holidays, Mia Belle Girls would like to focus on the importance of sisterhood. Whether your little girl is a sibling, or perhaps you are yourself, National Sisters' Day is an opportune time to teach your little learner how incredible a sisterly bond can be.
Someone Once Said...
Although their origins are unknown, many have given out sweet words and sage sayings regarding their sister. Use these quotes as inspiration for the day! Make cards or artwork based on their messages, or simply recite them to one another to reinforce that sisterly love.
"Side by side or miles apart, we are sisters connected by the heart."
"Sisters are different flowers from the same garden."
"A perfect sister I am not, but thankful for the one I've got."
"Our roots may say that we're sisters, but our own hearts know that we're friends."
"There is no better friend than a sister. And there is no better sister than you."
"I grin because you are my sister. I laugh because I know there's nothing you can do about it!"
"A sister is one of the nicest things you can have and one of the best things you can be."
"A sister is a special type of angel on earth who brings out your best qualities."
Dress For The Occasion
Looking for ways to dress your sweet sisters up in their holiday best? Mia Belle Girls can take it from here. We have outfits, sets, and accessories that will make them proud to be related.
These matching sets are all about sisterly love. Each has its perks as a big or little sister, but wearing the pink shirt and white leggings with golden heart polka dots, the cuteness overload will evenly divide between the two.
Thinking of taking those sweet siblings out for a night on the town or wanting to dress them up for memorable photos? Look no further than the fancy leopard print dress. The bodice features black laces and pretty frills, while the leopard skirt makes for a fierce addition. They will each look divine.
There's more than one way to show you're proud to be called a sister. Why not try this commemorative necklace set proudly declaring the sibling order amongst sisters. A sweet gift to give among friends and family, choose from a silver or gold finish for those wonderful girls.
Now THIS outfit screams love for your sister. Pink rose applique forms a heart framed in lace on the white tank top. Baby sister gets super comfy shorts while big sister gets the overall skit. However, both come covered with bright multicolored roses to match the bow headband and big creme buttons for accents. The difference in bottoms allows each girl to show off her own style, all while looking like her sister.
Read Books On The Subject
While there's hardly a shortage of sibling and sister books, these, in particular, tickled us pink and would be a great addition to your little one's library, especially for days like today.

Spend Sisterly Play Time Together With Frozen
If any franchise has taught us about the bonds between sisters, it has to be to Disney's Frozen. Oh, we know the songs and have seen the animation. Still, the more profound message has always been about the two princesses turned queens protecting, supporting, and believing in one another ultimately to save the day.
Neither is alone in their adventure, and one will often draw on the strengths of the other. No wonder it's one of the most popular stories of our day! And what girl would turn down a chance to be Queen Elsa or Queen Anna. Watch the movies, read the books, or simply make up for your pretend adventure! Mia Belle Girls can help here, too! We offer multiple costumes for each supportive super-sister (and Olaf!) along with accessories like wigs, tiaras, jewelry, and shoes to make the experience come to life.
And the rest is ultimately up to you! No matter how you choose to commemorate this wonderful holiday, the most important thing is that you spend it together. From Mia Belle Girls to your family, Happy National Sisters' Day!
