The feeling of fall has recently made its appearance, at least in North Carolina, which means the changing of my kid’s wardrobe is essential. I love the crisp fall air, the autumnal smells, apple cider, and the warmth of a bonfire, but it sure does stress me out. The reorganization has to happen, but it’s easier said than done.
When you’re in moments of transition between seasons, the weather can be unpredictable. Not only are you equipping your kids with clothes for every situation, you are also giving yourself a moment to deeply assess their ever-changing and ever-growing wardrobe.
Here is my toddler’s capsule wardrobe for season change check list:
4 long sleeve shirts
2 pairs of jeans
2 pairs of long pants (khaki, dress, etc.)
4-6 pairs of shorts
4 pairs of pajamas (2 short sleeve; 2 long sleeve)
8 pairs of socks (you could probably get away with less, but my kid has sweaty feet)
1 pair of sneakers
1 pair of dress shoes
1 pair of sandals
1 light-weight jacket
1 heavy jacket
Of course if you have a daughter, you’ll want to adjust this checklist to reflect her needs, but it’s a matter of an easy substitution. Change out the additional long pants for dresses and add some leggings. Her closest will be all set!
If you want to feel really adventurous, you can take the same steps with your wardrobe. I’ve already started the process and I have a feeling it’s going to take me a little while.
