I went to get my son a shirt for his school pictures and ended up with all of that other stuff. I bought him a sweater and shirt at the Children's Place for about $23 but am going to return them (they were bought out of last minute desperation) because they look cheap, they were way more than I like to pay for things from the Children's Place and because I found a super cute button up at the Gap for way cheaper. I used to really like the Children's Place but they have really been stinking lately and the clothes are just not great of quality (and dare I say it- their clothes look kind of babyish). Yes I know my kids are little but ever since they were babies I have dressed them stylishly. My son looks like a mini-daddy and my daughter is always dressed just too cute for words (I wish they had the sweater I bought her in my size!). But I digress...

I think I got an awesome deal though I know others may think I didn't. I really love Gap clothes and when my kids grow out of them I will be able to sell them for almost what I paid for them because they hold up so well. If I didn't have both kids with me I would have probably spent way more (could have been a good thing or a bad thing...).

Oh yeah, everything that I bought for my daughter is the next size up and higher from what size she is now. I love buying ahead because It saves me tons of money while still allowing me to dress my kids very nicely.

  1. I have noticed the same thing about the Children's Place. The clothes does not hold up for two sons, only one. I so wish that H & M will come my way, because their clothes actually last through sons 1, 2 and 3 and still then it looks great.
