Scarlett, age 3, refuses to wear any pants that are not leggings. No zipper nor button shall pass over her hips. “Stretch pants or no pants” is her motto.
Ryan and I are partial to jeans. Her big brother Julian has been wearing denim since he was a couple months old and wears them most of the time. Ryan and I wear jeans most of the time as well, and he keeps Julian outfitted in up-to-date washes. I realize I am sounding more shallow by the minute, so let’s just go with it. Basically, we’ve been reluctant to accept her leggings-only wardrobe.
When I saw Levi’s toddler jeggings at my local independent kid store, I fell in love.
These Levi’s jeggings are perfect for Scarlett. They feel soft and stretchy like leggings and offer the elastic waist demanded by the protruding tummy set. With a shirt hanging over the waistband, they look like jeans, including the trademark Levi stitching and red tag. And she totally went for it.
(FYI, I can only find them at one online store, Cookie’s in addition to the Levi’s online store. I paid less than $20 for these toddler jeggings and they come only in sizes 12, 18 and 24 months.)
