Well, 3 out of 4 is pretty good, right?
Before I leave town for a trip, I lay out my daughter’s school clothes for the days I am gone. But if I am home, my daughter doesn’t always put together the most appropriate outfits if she wakes up early and gets dressed on her own. By inappropriate I don’t mean, INAPPROPRIATE like that, but sweaters in the summer and fancy dresses on P.E. day just don’t work. Time to get into both of us into a routine now that school is back in session. So how can I make getting dressed fun(and easy) for my daughter and include a trip to the Container Store for me, one of my favorite places?
Time to hit Pinterest and find some ideas! The end result – a canvas hanging bag with 6 different compartments, one for each day of the school week plus one extra compartment for her clothes for soccer practice or cheerleading! The fun part – I searched for day of the week labels(again on Pinterest), printed them, cut them and used hot pink tape to secure them in place. I even bought a second hanging bag to keep all of her sandals and sneakers in so they are “fun” to put away.
Now, my daughter (and my husband) always know what she is wearing to school whether I am home or on the road. Now if only I could find someone to style me every day!
