GIrls Back to School Fashion

I’m trying to keep it low key and not say too much about it to the kids because I want them to enjoy the rest of their summer the best they can. But I am planning ahead this year. Miss Thang is very picky about her clothes. And I just cannot be a mom who makes my kids wear things just because someone bought it for them.

Miss Thang is tricky though because I will see things I just KNOW she will love and when I show her she wrinkles her nose and says, “Sorry Mom, I don’t really like that.” WHAT?!

And then of course I’ll show her something I just know she WON’T like and she’s all “OOOOOHHHH I LOVE THAT!”

Wasn’t this stuff supposed to start in like 2-3 more years at least?!!?

Anyway, I do not shop for her without her being there with me. And I’ve learned that just because she likes it on the hanger DOES NOT mean she’ll like it on her person. I’ve learned to ask the question “Do you like this?” if yes, “Do you like it enough to wear to school multiple times?” is that answer is yes then we are good to go.

So. We’ve been online window shopping for new school clothes. Here are some Miss Thang approved picks.

I’ve always been baffled by the fact that back to school clothes advertisements are hoodies and long sleeves and fleece pants, which I know kids need for the better part of the school year, but my kids want to wear their new clothes NOW….not in four months when it’s finally cold enough to wear long sleeves and fleece pants. Maybe that’s only an issue in OK……if you know anything about weather in OK you know that you can be wearing shorts in December and sweatshirts in July in any given year. I have a picture of my kids playing the in the snow with short sleeves and Miss Thang is wearing a skirt. Weather in Oklahoma is WEEEEEIRD.

So, THAT, along with the fact that Miss Thang is pretty hot natured and DOES NOT LIKE long sleeves at all, all these looks are tanks or short sleeves. When it does finally get cold enough to need something more she adds zip hoodies or jean jackets. Only when it’s SUPER cold will she wear her big coat.

 

If a shirt says ANYthing about being a gymnast or gymnastics she will want it. THAT I can count on! This is super easy, tank & jean shorts.
