Which kids’ clothing brands look great, don’t cost a fortune, and wear well through the active years of childhood? That’s what listener Andrea wanted to know when she sent us this question via Facebook:
Do you guys have any tips or go-to brands for quality children’s clothing (but affordable)? In six years, I’ve learned that GAP clothing sometimes shrinks, movie character shirts from Target stretch out easily, and I’m still looking for coat zippers that don’t break! Thanks! Love your show!
Andrea’s question inspired Episode 90, where Meagan and Sarah talk all about kids’ clothes – where we shop, how we style our kids, and tips for storing and organizing all those clothes. It’s a fun conversation with a ton of tips – enjoy!
