Ever since my daughter was little, she has shunned frilly, lacy items. As she transitioned from a toddler into a preschooler, she got even more vocal in pointing out clothing or accessories that she liked. She's not a "girly girl" by any means, even now. She's quite comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt... just like her mom! And if it is a favorite, she wears it all the time. I've even told her that I don't want to see 'that shirt' on you again for a few weeks! She loves what she loves and that's what she wears.

This saves me money since no mom wants to see last year's clothes stuffed in the back of the closet with price tags still on them. Kids need to like what they wear or you've just wasted your money because they won't wear what they don't like. She loves to shop for t-shirts and jeans at Target, which makes back-to-school shopping affordable. I did let her get one outfit at Justice last year, and nearly cried at the register when it came to $100 for three pieces of clothing. Ouch! Fortunately, her casual style can be easily achieved by shopping at Target, Walmart, JC Penneys, and a few other less expensive stores.

One area we do clash over is her absolute love of cami tops. I don't mind that she wears them around the house or to bed, but she tries to leave the house to go to church, the library, out shopping, or anywhere else while wearing them. It drives me nuts! Camis have been a favorite of hers for several years, so I'm afraid this will be one of those perpetual arguments that we always have. That, and that she always wants to wear her hair in a pony tail... every single day.
