And on the topic of sexualised clothes for girls - my god, how hard is it to get longer shorts for girls! I ended up buying 2 pair of coloured denim BOYS shorts in mint green and black from best and less and one red pair from Target (thank god for adjustable waists as the boys cut are way different to the girls, I think I bought a size 2!).
Nina also has a couple of skirts from Target from summer 2011 that still fit that skinny little waist. They are just jersey fabric but nearly to her knee (and she is tall). I also found one that has shorts underneath the skirt which has been good. I hate short things and spaghetti straps for that matter!
When Cait was back in a size 1 I think, I grabbed some cheap shorts from Big W, held up the boys and girls to compare and there was a good inch difference in length. (As everything has to be pink now, haven't done a comparison lately!)
The stuff I order online from Gymboree has lots of built in shorts, I've only just started finding skorts here at Target.
As I've just got out all of Caitlin's winter stuff that I bought ahead, and discovered a huge order that I forgot to write up and am now completely overstocked
, can someone with a primary aged child give me some NUMBERS with their clothes! How MANY party dresses, after school outfits etc. am I going to need?!
I just unpacked 3 new pairs of jeans (mid wash, dark denim and black, all $5 each plus a pair of lighter ones and brown cord that are a small make and she grew into end of last year, both second hand) for the child who will not wear pants without a fight. PLEASE give me some guidance!
