First day of school was a success!
I got lots of questions yesterday about where I shop for my girls. Nothing special. I just head to the mall. All of the malls in San Diego are outdoor malls. They are very sunny, happy places to be. :) Here is a breakdown of where I bought the outfits in the picture I shared:
My go to stores for my girls are Gap Kids (has always been my favorite), Children's Place (hit and miss), Gymboree, and lately Justice (Addison's favorite - she loves anything that sparkles!). Once in a while I check out Old Navy. I had coupons to all of these stores so we got the girls some fun stuff for the school year.
I mentioned in my "Back to School Checklist" post that I was trying to find a way to organize my girls school clothes for the week. I really needed to come up with something to reduce the drama each morning that usually takes place when it's time to figure out what to wear. I had seen so many fun ideas on Pinterest and was going to come up with something really beautiful and spectacular. Then I remembered that I have no time right now for beautiful and spectacular so instead I did what I do have time for: easy and practical. I had the girls pick out their outfits for the week including socks and accessories.
Then I grabbed some scissors, a black marker and some gallon sized Ziploc bags that I had on hand.
El's first day outfit ready to go!
A few more examples:
The bags are big and strong enough to also hold things like leggings and skirts.
Whatever doesn't go on the hanger fits in the bag!
El's outfits for the first week. They are all Ellie approved: extremely comfortable.
Ad's outfits for the first week. They are all Addison approved: extremely fashionable.
My girls never change. :)
I guess easy and practical isn't so bad after all.
