I’ve said it before, but I like to dress my kids in that perfect mix of cool/edgy and little cute. Girls in this age group are especially hard to dress. Once they start walking I struggle with the overly baby stuff but equally struggle with the too grown up looking stuff. It’s a delicate balance to mix a grown up vibe with the little girl fun. Something about the high heels for kiddos makes me cringe. These, of course, are famous last words that I will pair with things I used to say like, “what kind of parents let their child use a phone at the dinner table?” — snort! I was such an amazing Mom before I was a Mom.
After shopping this sale and doing a little “research” — you know, watching an entire season of Bella and Bulldogs with Brooks. I’ve decided to just kind of embrace it all. The more prints, layers, and colors, the better for this age group! Mix and Match. Or don’t match. That’s cool too! Add a little rock and roll flair, leather, fringe and/or studs and you’re done! You know. Easy as that!
And, I still totally stand by what I said yesterday about Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shopping…
“Take it or leave it: My advice for baby shopping on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is spend the money on the dressier (Sunday’s best) type clothes. Throw in a designer jean just for good measure. And top it off with awesome shoes and a great coat. I save the plain leggings, underwear, pajamas for another time because well you can get that stuff anywhere at anytime.”
So let’s do this.
Nordstrom lists their pants in this section in a very strange way. Sometimes all sizes are grouped together in one link. Other times it is only for one specific group i.e.. Big Girls Only and a separate link for toddler and little girls. I don’t know. It’s weird. But to make it a little easier for you, I have labeled each pant with the brand and what size bracket the link corresponds with.
Also, you will notice a ton of DL1961 denim because OMG! Holy Grail of kids denim for girls! I mean, the best fit/stretch ever!
Same for the Boys — Nordstrom lists their pants in this section a very strange way. Sometimes all sizes are grouped together in one link. Other times it is only for one specific group i.e.. Big Boys Only and a separate link for toddler and little boys. I don’t know. It’s weird. But to make it a little easier for you, I have labeled each pant with the brand and what size bracket the link corresponds with.
