This year my 6-year-old changed schools from a Montessori school to a traditional academy. One of the reasons for our switch was that we really wanted her in a school that requires uniforms as a dress code. Hallelujah, parents! No more arguing about whether or not cat pants match shirts with mice on them because everyone knows cats and mice are friends, therefore, matching. Uniforms are just one more way to take the hassle out of the morning rush out the door. So after I signed her name on the dotted line I knew French Toast would be my next stop for everything we would ever need to outfit her for a successful school year.
You can win a year of uniforms from French Toast in our #SavvySassySchoolDays Giveaway!
French Toast is a one-stop online uniform retailer that has everything you need, in every color style and size, from 2T up. Easily search for your uniforms by color, style, and even by school or zip code. And everything you buy from French Toast comes with a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee and no hassle returns — it’s really a no-brainer. In addition to all that greatness, French Toast also offers fundraising programs for your child’s school and if you sign up for their email list you will receive discount codes on a weekly basis for keeping up on their uniform needs throughout the school year, too. Now Mom is happy, kids are dapper, all it right with the world.
This is the adorable dress (2-in-1 Pleated Dress, $15) that my daughter picked out to wear for the first day of school if that tells you anything about how much she loved it. The entire outfit comes in one piece and is easy to get on and off, making it impossible to mess up, even on the most hectic of mornings. The cute layered look consists of a starched cotton button up shirt attached to the softest cotton blend sweater material, and then a polyester skirt that is pleated all the way around. Keep in mind that my daughter is a petite size 5 in everything else and this outfit is a size 6, so French Toast seems to run on the small size — good to note when ordering.
All in the details
The one thing that I have noticed about everything we’ve ordered from French Toast is that they have an eye for sweet little details, and this dress (Pleated Hem Jumper, $14) is no exception. From the short pleats that go all the way around, to the dainty little bow at the drop-waist, it’s all cute as can be. The surprisingly lightweight jumper is made from Crinkle No More cotton and polyester blend fabric, which makes it easy to care for and no ironing!
This one, I have to admit, is my personal favorite because again with the details. From the adorable Peter Pan collar on the white cotton shirt to the perfect pleats and side-zipper on the polyester skirt (Front Pleated Skirt with Tabs, $11-13), topped off with the seriously soft and cozy sweater (Pom Pom Zip-Up Sweater, $17) with fun little pom-poms dangling from the zipper, it’s all just so well done. Thankfully, this skirt does have an adjustable waist which is pulled to its maximum in the back, meaning we will be able to fit this skirt for the foreseeable future.
Even if your child doesn’t require uniforms, French Toast has a ton of non-uniform styles to choose from, too. Because when you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good, you do good… and she looks like she feels great in her new uniforms. Here’s to a great school year!
