Jenny from Dinner a Love Story called on us in her hour of need: “Picky eating I can handle — picky dressing is another thing altogether. Can anyone suggest good sources/brands for girls’ clothes that are not overly girly? Dealbreakers: ruffles, pleats, any kind of decorative trim, button-downs, high price tags. (Momfilter – why oh why are you on vacation in my hour of need?)”
Hope we’re on the right track…our first thought–the uniform section of the usual suspects, often has the simple cuts and colors that are very appealing…that is, if you’re kids don’t have to wear uniforms to school.
This is a dress from Gap, in their uniform section. They have a ton of great pants too, in black, navy, and khaki, in lots of different cuts.
This dress from Lands End is on sale for $30, and could be a three, if not four season dress.
These uniform pants from Old Navy are just $14! We also love their skinny jeans, which often go on sale 2 for $20 (see top picture).
Love these knit vests from Old Navy.
We’re big fans of shorts, worn with tights through fall and mild winter days. These from Lands End are just $15.
And these microfiber tights from Lands End, for $10, in bright colors, or neutrals, are comfy, last forever, and don’t sag at the knees.
