A change in temperature and kids pants that are suddenly 2 inches too short can only mean one thing (ok maybe 2). It’s fall and it’s time for another kid’s wardrobe refresh!
Did you catch my spring refresh guide? Same concept, warmer clothes. I like to do these sort-throughs during the transition seasons before Mother Nature gets really crazy.
To get started have a try-on session. Set aside anything that no longer fits, is in bad shape, or hasn’t been worn. Keeping things around that are never used is a waste – waste of space and waste of a perfectly good piece of clothing that some other child could be wearing. Once you’ve narrowed it down to what is staying you will know exactly what you need to fill in. (See the list below for recommended items)
I’m definitely a minimalist when it comes to kids clothing. All three of mine (8, 8, and 3) have one drawer each for warm weather and cold weather. And it’s exactly enough for us. Think of it as a capsule wardrobe for your kids. A small number of quality items that can be easily mixed and matched and suit your child’s particular tastes. It’s a morning time saver for sure.
I’ll be using this list to fill in wardrobe pieces. When deciding on the right amount for your family, consider your laundry schedule, regular activities, and local weather. For a printable checklist click HERE.
