Best Jeans for Kids

jeans

I have been looking for the best jeans for my kids that are cost effective yet durable since my kids play hard. After searching high and low I have ranked the best jeans for your money.

  1. The Children’s Place – they have jeans that are $7.99 pretty much every day of the week. They claim it is a “sale” price yet the sale never ends. They have skinny, straight and bootcut pants options which are good for kids of all sizes. My son is very skinny and the slim jeans fit him rather nicely. They aren’t too tight and they aren’t too baggy. For the price of $7.99 it can’t be beat.
  2. H&M – if you have an H&M near you they are the 2nd best option. They provide the slim look that all the kids are crazy about these days and they are only $9.99.
  3. Old Navy – everyone pretty much has an Old Navy close to them. The sale price of their jeans typically falls right around $10 but you must catch them at the right times. Like The Children’s Place, they offer the different styles that will fit your kid just right.
  4. Crazy 8 – what I like about them is their Rockstar jeans. They have the perfect fit to them and my son looked absolutely amazing in them, he even won best dressed at his football banquet when having them on. What puts them at number 4 is only because of the higher price of $12 which isn’t really even high at all.

For my parents with kids out of the child sizing (5-14) I believe one of the top stores for girls is Forever 21. They have skinny jeans that come in at the low low price of $7.99. You aren’t going to find that price for adult jeans anywhere. For those with the older boys, I will have to recommend Old Navy as they tend to have more sales than most places and the jeans are offered in multiple styles. If your child likes the distressed look you can also easily YouTube how to do it yourself so you aren’t paying an arm and a leg.

Happy Shopping 🙂

pregnancy style

I wrote this post when I was pregnant with my son, but it still applies.  I found myself referencing this post when trying to think of clothes to wear now that I am pregnant again.  So, in this post I decided to share some of my pregnancy style.  I was told several times that I looked “cute pregnant” or that I “wear pregnancy well” and I would always get compliments about my outfits.  So here are a few tips I have found that worked for me.  I didn’t want to spend too much money on maternity clothing, since I knew most of it could not be worn after the baby was born.  I bought a few maternity pieces from Target and worked with the other items I already had.

Since I am a working mom, I need work appropriate outfits, as well as casual outfits.  I bought one maternity dress, borrowed another, bought two pairs of maternity jeans,  two long sleeved shirts, a short sleeved shirt, black dress pants, a black dress skirt, a pair of black leggings and two belly bands (black and white).  That’s it!  Most of the items I bought were on sale, from a consignment store and for the others I used coupons I received when I started my registry with Target.

Here are a few pictures of my outfits and what items I mixed and matched to make each outfit:

In this pic I was around 23 weeks and my outfit is a dress I found that was a little big on me, so I added a belt, scarf, and some flats.  This outfit contained no maternity items.

In this picture I was 24 weeks and my outfit included my maternity leggings, a big white button up shirt, a cardigan, red scarf, and a black belt above the belly.  I also wore my black riding boots.

In this pic I was around 28 weeks and my outfit includes my maternity black skirt and long sleeved maternity shirt.  I also added a scarf (I LOVE scarves) and a white tank top.  I found some great long white tanks that I love to pair with my shirts.  They are cheaper than the maternity brand tanks and work just as well because they are still long enough to cover my belly.

This was taken at Week 29 and does not include any maternity items, except a belly band.  I paired a turtleneck that I had with another long tank, jeans, white belly band, and riding boots.  Plus I added a necklace.

This was taken during Week 30 and contains no maternity items.  I wore a stretchy skirt with a big button-up shirt and cardigan.  I love big button-up shirts and I happened to have this one in my closet, but you could probably get one from a husband, boyfriend, brother, male friend, or thrift store.  They are everywhere!  I also added a skinny belt above the belly and flats.

This was taken during week 31 and contains no maternity items, except a belly band.  I am wearing some stretchy jeans that I had and a belly band, plus I added two loose tank tops that I had and a cardigan.  I also added my black boots.

Week 32 – This outfit did not contain any maternity items.  It is a wrap dress, which I already owned and a long tank top.  I added some fun jewelry and red flats.

Week 32 – Here is that button-up shirt again!  I added a white tank under the shirt, a belt, and my maternity jeans.  I also added flats as well.

35 weeks – This outfit included a stretchy, non-maternity dress, maternity leggings, a cardigan, and a black & white belt.  I wore riding boots with this outfit as well.

It is hard to put together maternity outfits that are cute and comfortable, but here are a few tips to save a little cash on your maternity clothes:

  • Cardigans work great in the fall and winter: I have lots of them and they don’t have to be maternity to add something extra to an outfit.  Also, you can pair a cardigan with a short sleeved shirt if you don’t have many long-sleeved options.  
  • Before you purchase maternity items, check your closet:  I found many items in my closet that were stretchy material and could be worn for most, if not all of my pregnancy.  
  • Stop by your local consignment store:  I checked a few consignment stores in my area and couldn’t find anything, but then I checked a children’s consignment store and found several items.  Make sure to check children’s stores, as well as your traditional consignment stores.
  • Purchase a few high waist belts:  If you don’t own any belts that you can wear above your belly, purchase a few.  I use them all the time, especially with my non-maternity items.  They help to make these items fit a little more like traditional maternity items and they accentuate the belly!
