What sizes are you shopping for this season?

Have you started yet? Any game plan?

Maddie is a solid 5T or size 5/6. She still won't wear jeans or anything with buttons/zippers so while she is skinny, bottoms of most brands fit so long as it's elastic.

I've recently started acquiring new and used sets from GymboFriends. Here are a few examples:

Plus 2 Skirt/top sets and 2 long sleeve swing tops with leggings

Also this cute summer dress

Things like bathing suits we buy in store as needed, same with water shoes and other footwear. I really need to stay away from this gymbofriends site, it's addicting!

I'm registered to consign on the 17th but I haven't even started yet so not sure how much of a closet cleanout I'll be able to do between now and then to make some $$$ for more clothes.

We went to Kohls last week and got most of Syd's spring/summer wardrobe. She has to go along because she has strong opinions on what she likes and doesn't like! Mostly got tunics with capri leggings, some dresses, cotton shorts and tees/tanks. She pretty much needed everything new. She is super skinny, she still wears 4 bottoms, tops are 5 or 6.

Lilly also won't wear jeans. She only wears leggings for pants. My dad recently gave us a discount code to the Disney store and we found a few dresses on Clerence there already. I'll probably hit up that store again. It will probably be mostly dresses for her this summer since that's what she likes.

Aidan is just now growing out of his 4T pants. I had bought all 5T jeans in the fall, so I'll pull those out now. I will need to buy all new sort sleeve shirts in size 6 and some summer Pj's. Outerwear for Spring, I already have. He will need a new pair of outdoor shoes once summer hits.

Kaija will need all new everything for summer this year. She was a 4t at the end of last summer and is now a solid 6! We'll do lots of basics - knit shorts and tanks, dresses, sandals. She'll come shopping with me, her opinions aren't that strong but I like to give her the chance to choose her clothes.

No clue what we need. I'll have to pull out all the 5t stuff to see what fits. She long outgrew the length of 5t pants, so she's been in 6 for a while. We will probably get size 6 dresses, again for length. She's skinny enough that I am hoping the 5t shorts will fit

Bought some stuff at children's place while they had an Easter sale. He's in 5/6 jeans and 6/7 shirts. Still wears 12 in shoes.

Thus far he has zero shorts but does have 6 pairs of jeans from children's and 10 short sleeve shirts, new Spider-Man rain boots with matching coat from Disney store, blue jean jacket for spring along with light weight jacket.

Hoping to go to old navy, Gymboree, and children's again in a few weeks.

I think we are set for Spring/Summer just because she hasn't changed too much in size and she already has tons of dresses/ t-shirts in her closet. We may pick up a few items here and there though, and I will probably buy her a couple pairs of sandals.

I am already thinking of school clothes for Fall though. School starts in mid-August and since the baby is due at the end of July, I know I'll be scrambling in the summer anyways. So, I may start shopping for school clothes early.

She should have some stuff from last year b/c I was buying size 5 shirts. I think I'll buy some size 6 shirts and size 5 shorts. I work at the Gymboree so the girls have a ton of clothes!
