purple striped girls dressI still remember the moment I found the perfect little purple striped cotton girls dress from Petit Bateau. It was a splurge for sure. But I was pregnant with #2, and knew I’d get a whole lot of use out of it two times around. (You can even see it on my daughter on my post about Gap skinny jeans.)

I hate to say it, but I think our time together is done. That 18mo dress served me well, going from one daughter to the next, from a dress to a tunic with rolled-up sleeves over jeans. RIP. I hope it won’t be miffed that I’ve found another to replace it.

The purple striped play dress
from Scout Organics has the slightly boxy, slouchy shape I love. It
will be awesome over tights or over leggings or jeans, and my daughter
will go nuts for those big treasure pockets. (What is it with kids and pockets anyway?)

We’ve owned a few of
Scout’s cotton dresses and they’ve held up quite well; not surprisingly,
they’re designed by a mom who totally gets the durability thing too.
