The End of an Era

One of the things I have always loved about The Children's Place was the fact that I could always get cute little matching or coordinating outfits for Sarah and Emily to wear. Sometimes, for holidays, I would even get my neice and nephew matching outfits, too.

I'd even get the girls coordinating pajamas quite often, too. I'd get them each the same style, but in a different color scheme.

Then, when Katie came along, I was so happy to find that I could get them all three matching or coordinating outfits for special occasions. I loved being able to buy these cute Christmas outfits for my three girls, my neices, and my nephew.

This past Christmas, I was especially thrilled with the matching outfits I bought for all of the children. I know that some people despise Christmas plaids, but I just loved the way these outfits all came together.

A couple of weeks ago, Phil and I bought this Easter dress for Katie. Then yesterday, I was on The Children's Place website and I found some cute matching outfits that I was hoping would work for Sarah and Emily.

So, I took the girls up to the mall last night to try them on for size. While the outfits definitely fit the girls, they are just way too old now to pull off the little girl styles. My days of putting all three of my girls in matching outfits is finally over. I've accepted it, but I'm not happy about it.
