My daughter has been begging me for more tees and leggings lately. I think this is because they are easier for her to put on herself (versus dresses with zippers/buttons/ties) and also, likely, because they are a bit of a novelty in her wardrobe. I have been hunting for a few tees and leggings I like and thought I’d share my favorite finds…
Tees for Little Girls.
HAND EMBROIDERED NAME SHIRT (SEEN ABOVE!)
SOLID PIMA TEES FROM NANTUCKET KIDS — LAST TIME I CHECKED, THEIR PROMO CODE OF SUMMERSALE STILL GOT YOU 40% OFF EVERYTHING!
BASEBALL BAT PRINT TEE (ON SALE!)
THESE $22 AMAZON TEES COME IN SUCH GOOD COLORS AND PRINTS
RALPH LAUREN — THIS STYLE RUNS REALLY SMALL, SIZE UP
CAT & JACK SOLID TEES ($4!) — THESE ARE HANDY IF YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC PAIR OF SHORTS/LEGGINGS AND WANT A CLOSELY COORDINATING TOP IN A SPECIFIC COLOR
MAISON LABICHE (ON SALE!)
CHERRY/HEART PRINT — RYLEE + CRU VIBES FOR UNDER $10!
One strategy I have found helpful is proactively pairing tees with shorts/leggings that “go” with the pattern of the tee and stacking them in her drawers accordingly, i.e., rolling up the shorts with the tee that matches versus putting all tees in one drawer and leggings/shorts in another, in which case we might end up with Lilly shorts and a striped navy tee.
In general I find patterned leggings tricky, though — I tend to buy white, navy, and sometimes pink/gray solids from Old Navy that can go with more. However, I did snag a few pairs of these in the Liberty-esque floral prints — some as low as $4! — that have been popular with mini. A few other patterned leggings I liked:
THESE RIBBED ONES FROM MAISON ME COME IN GOOD COLORS
THESE IN THE CORAL FORAL AND TAUPE STAR
Sometimes you can find cute leggings/tee sets — this one is super sweet!
Tees for Little Boys.
Boys I find much easier to outfit in simple tees. I aggressively search for Busy Bees Henry tees on sale and stock up whenever I find them — they are just the best quality and fit, and I appreciate the button closure. I also like:
H&M 5-PACKS — COME IN A GOOD COMBO OF STRIPES AND SOLIDS
STRIPES FROM PETIT BATEAU
P.S. Bloomie’s is offering 20% off almost anything, including this rainbow striped Kule dress, which, with promo, is only $60!!!; this Reformation-esque dress (doesn’t it call to mind the Nikita?!), and this breezy tiered dress.
P.P.S. Recent Etsy finds.
P.P.P.S. I hardly remember the gal I was in my late 20s.
