Over the years I’ve mentioned my daughter’s issues with anything scratchy, stiff, or sticky – all the SPD parents out there “get it” and if you don’t “get it” count yourself lucky! Now that we are entering first grade (OMG, already? She was bald and couldn’t walk when we started this blog), she has a much better time managing her issues with touch, but she still can only wear things that are superdupersuperduperextra soft. So when GapKids asked me to check out their back to school line, I was thrilled to see so many stylish SOFT items. Now Scarlet can learn, run, jump, and play all while looking adorable and feeling great. Our favorite items for back-to-school from GapKids are the marled moto jacket, floral knot top, harem slub pants, and glitter bow headband (this girl always needs some glitter somewhere).
I adore these loose fitting jersey pants with their flat waistband and modern pleats, and with a DIY sparkle bow necklace and some gold bangles, they make the transition back to school easy-breezy (since it will be about 90 degrees when she starts in a few weeks). When the weather cools down we will throw a long sleeve tee under the sweet knot top for winter fun. She loves that it’s pink, i love that it’s not PINK, you know what I mean?
Scarlet and I both ADORE the moto jacket – it transforms her handmade summer dresses into cozy fall gear. It’s a soft jacket with a hard edge to it – so versatile, and did I mention soft?
There’s so much more cuteness going on over at GapKids, soft stuff for kids that like to snuggle, and tough stuff for kids who love to play rough and tumble.
