Seriously!?! (alternate title: Out of Season my Rear!)

Last week Gabbie went from having sandals that fit to having sandals the edge of which her toes hung over. Seriously, it happened just about over night. So, we needed new sandals. I mean, it just reached the 80s/90s here, it’s like summer just got here in August. It will probably be hot for a while, too. She really needed new sandals, like, last week.

Except, apparently, according to retailers, sandals are “out of season” (that’s what the lady at Stride Rite told my mom when she called). Rain boots? Check. Full-coverage dress shoes in fall colors? Check. SNOW BOOTS? Double check. Sandals? Nilch. Nada. None. You have got to be kidding me! Since when is August not sandal season? I plan on wearing my sandals through October if I can help it; I’m sure that because the hot weather started so late, it will still be warm enough then. Gabbie is still wearing shorts and sleeveless rompers.

Thank the Lord she doesn’t need a bathing suit (I hope, she hasn’t tried hers on yet – it might be too small already too).

I hate it when that happens. It will definitely be warm here through NOVEMBER, yet all the stores have their fall stuff out, just when Audrey is out-growing everything.

Try online, or scan the sale racks. Good luck!

I hate that too. Andrew's moving to a bigger size of clothing, but all you can find in the stores right now is long sleeves and jeans. And freaking WINTER COATS.

I've been buying him a few things online on clearance to get him through. (Target = love!)

I just had this same problem with Stride Rite. Bridget has outgrown the sandals we got her in the spring, but it's still a zillion degrees here and will be for a while. So I went back and no, they don't still have them.

But! I found a department store here that sells Stride Rite shoes in their kids shoe department that had them, in her size for $17. What a win.

I live in the south and they start pulling it all in early August here too. Crazy! Just try and find a bathing suit (it is 93 here today).
