I don't know about where you live, but where we are, it has finally decided to settle into warm weather every day. I love that my girls like to wear dresses and skirts often, but it gets too hot for leggings under them and my girls are active, bar flipping, monkey bar swinging, climbing girlies, and I do not want their panties showing to the entire playground!
So, I've always had my girls wear soft shorts under their dresses if they are not wearing leggings. A few years ago I bought several perfect ones at Target, super soft and the right length to not hang out the bottom of the skirts. But, then my older daughter outgrew them and I couldn't find anymore at Target. Thankfully, last year I discovered the Cartwheel Shorts at Children's Place and they are still selling them this year! During a 40% off sale, I stocked up in various colors for my girls. Just be warned, I order a size or even 2 up because the shorts seem to run small, that or they are just designed to be super skin tight, but that would not be comfortable for my daughters. I size up and they are great, loose enough for easy walking, but tight enough not to fall off their waists!
Anyone else a mama to a girly girl who loves dresses but also loves the monkey bars?!!
