Yes. You read that right. There has been no purchasing of back to school clothes for the girls this year.
It’s not because we can’t afford it. And, it’s not because we are mean.
It’s just because their closets are literally bursting at the seams…wait, maybe that’s figuratively. They are set with clothes. There are always so many good deals online that my mom can’t pass them up and sends them along. And, there are definitely deals at the beginning of the school year!
Looking through their closets and at the newest styles, I know they will be just as cool, hip and trendy as the next kid (until they spill their PB&J on their shirt or lap, which is bound to happen!). Jeans and shirts always win!
That’s largely what their back to school, already have in their closet wardrobe is made up of. The Old Navy deals are too good to pass up and they always seem to have the same or similar styles which I like.
When we do buy them clothes, we go for the traditional looks (I know, I dress them like a mini me) of solid/simple pattern tops and solid bottoms. That way everything matches, and they have a better chance of success dressing themselves! When you have three kids and have to get out the door by 7:00am, you need all the help you can get!
How many pairs of pants do your kids have for back to school? I’m leaning towards keeping that number small this year and getting their use out of them!
