Why It’s Totally Acceptable to Spend More on Girls’ Clothes

Shopping for Toddler Girls

See that cute floral top my daughter is wearing? It’s actually a dress she used to wear before she was even walking. She’s two and a half now, and it still fits.  Only it’s shorter.

That’s the thing about shopping for girl’s clothes. Sure, I buy her tons of stuff, but the clothes out there are so stinkin’ cute, I just can’t help myself.  And besides, I can justify the spending because she wears the clothes for a long time.

Her old maxi dresses? They’re mini now and they look just as cute, maybe even more so. Her sweaters and long sleeve tops?  They’re 3/4-length sleeve tops.  Her pants? She’s still wearing some 12-18 month pants, but now they’re cropped or capris.

So you can see how she really gets the mileage from her clothes.   It’s like she has a new outfit every few months.  I can’t say the same about my son. Once he outgrows his pants, they don’t turn into cute capris.  Nope, they’re just funny-looking high-waters, although now that I think of it, I can probably turn them into shorts if I had a sewing machine.
