I’ve always been a pretty relaxed mom when it comes to getting my daughter dressed. I even let Mazzy choose her own outfits when she insists on it— she has a new obsession with “matching” so that alleviates most fears of her looking like she lives on the street.
As I was going through all the online offerings at places like Old Navy, Baby Gap, Zara, Children’s Place and Target, I realized I actually have a lot of rules about what my toddler should and shouldn’t wear to preschool.
Some rules are based on personal preference— like I tend to stay away from clothes that are too babyish (we’re over pale pink bunny motifs) and clothes that are too grown up (no navel grazing, thank you very much). But most of my rules make practical sense for any parent sending their kid to school for the first time.
