I am having this serious problem with Charlotte’s school clothing that is utterly pissing me off, to say the least.
She has to wear khaki pants to school everyday. Its part of their uniform. I hate uniforms, but that’s another post.
Anyhoo, she has recently hit this growth spurt. I have a 6 year old that comes up to my chest and trust me, she reminds me everyday. “Mommy, I can touch your boobies!”
Her sizes are pretty standard for her age…mainly a 6x. Sometimes a 6, sometimes a 7, but 6x is usually a safe bet if she isn’t around to try things on. The actual problem comes in regarding the style of the clothing available on the market. For example, I recently went shopping at Target for some new khaki pants for her….everything, and I mean everything, was “skinny” khakis, jeans, corduroys, you name it.
The irony of “skinny” anything in this country cracks me up, but the whole thought process of putting my 6 year old in skinny pants pisses me off. I don’t want her wearing pants that are essentially leggings but troll up her behind. The problem is, I cant find any pants, with the exception of the uniform store itself, that are not falling under this horrifically inappropriate trend.
Look at this poor girl this morning:
Whose idea was it to make “skinny” jeans for size 2t, 3t, 5t, 6x?? There are certain ages that clothing should not be made in. If it shows your belly, hugs your body, or says “Delicious” on the butt, it should come in sizes 1 and up. As in adults…not in children. Maybe we should be looking to the fashion industry for the destruction of our childrens morality. Maybe it starts with the pants!
Honestly I would have zero issue buying her pants solely from the uniform store except the crotch area isn’t long enough for her body type on the only pants they carry for her and the seam runs desperately close to places it shouldn’t. In short, she refuses to wear them because of it and I dont exactly blame her.
I am all for trend…if it makes my little girl look like a little girl.
Today I bought 3 pair of shorts from Zulily by Hazel that I adore. Sweet..simple….AGE APPROPRIATE.
Now why can’t they have age appropriate pants?
Does anyone have any clue where I can find cargo pants for 6x or have they stopped making them entirely in exchange for childhood sex appeal? I would rather Charlotte look like a boy than a 6 year old trying to walk the runway at school.
