Holy moly is stuff from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale selling out like hot cakes or what?!
Both Mallory and Michael have already worn through and/or outgrown most of the summer-y pieces they had from Alaska so a little closet refresh is in order! I'm definitely not a mom who invests a lot of money into my kids' clothes. They grow too fast and are FAR too messy for expensive clothing. While the vast majority of their wardrobe comes from either Target, Old Navy or local second hand shops, there are a select few items that are worth the splurge -- you know, the "on sale" kind of splurge. ;)
Since Mallory and Michael are currently in the same size shirts and jammies, I try to buy unisex as often as possible. Double the wear means I can feel good about spending a little more. I highly recommend the brand Tucker + Tate! They make really excellent quality clothing that my kids' haven't yet figured out how to destroy, so we get some serious mileage out of their stuff.
Mallory, being the oldest, usually lucks out and gets to wear new shoes, leaving Mikey with only the shoes that were strong enough to weather the wear of his sister. Nike and Converse are among my top go-to brands for kids shoes! They have the widest variety of gender neutral, classic kicks that I know can take a healthy toddler beating.
Apart from the staples, I combed through Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale for things that I thought would make good Christmas or Birthday gifts and wound up with the above list. Color me a shitty mom, but this list is NOTHING compared to my shopping cart when I finished scouring the #Nsale beauty deals, but still, damage was done. ;)
