School Uniforms

Does she really have to wear them? At Payten's new school when you enter the "3" year preschool class you are required to wear uniforms. Most parents would be thrilled about this and don't get me wrong part of me is happy that we don't have to spend 20 minutes every morning picking out something to wear but Payten loves to get all dressed up. She picks out a dress at least 5 days out of the week, so it will be interesting around here when her options are skirt or pants. Ehhh...

Their school uniform are red polo shirts with school logo, and either navy blue skirt, pants or shorts. Needless to say it will get pretty boring. So I have started ordering lots of different hair accessories to dress it up a bit. My friend Tammy will be making her some adorable Funky flowers and I am looking into ordering these polka dot bows in her school colors.

Since Payten is petite, finding her navy blue bottoms is almost impossible. I did find this awesome school uniform site, French Toast. And the best part is its very affordable! We also ordered a few pairs of pants from Old Navy since I know that they will definitely fit Payten.

One of the hardest parts will be to get her to wear sneakers and socks. Both of my girls are just not a fan. They are true Florida girls, flip flops and sandals. I ordered Payten these cute Keds sneakers/mary janes. They are plain but I am thinking they will be comfortable and of course still cute!

I have a friend who's kids have to wear uniforms & she LOVES it. There are no fights about what they are & are not wearing & it doesn't take as long to get ready in the morning. I hope she does well with them!!! Happy school year!
