Although Widget is not in school, I still have the need to replace her wardrobe about this time of year due to pesky summer growth spurts. However, the clothing options on the sale racks do not always match the current season. Like this pair of white leggings I picked up at the Gap Kids Outlet. I think the pants were marked around $4 plus an extra 40% off...so pretty cheap. But since we live in a warm climate at the moment (Puerto Rico winters are only supposed to reach a low of 65-70 degrees I think), I knew Widget would not use long pants as often as capris.
You could do this to a pair of leggings your daughter outgrew (in length) and make them last another season, or give new life to a well loved item in her wardrobe :)
Have you altered any clothing for back to school? Old clothing made new or some awesome clearance finds?Good luck with your back to school events this week (and next).
