Today I have a fun and short post that my nieces helped me to write.

I have 6 darling nieces that are ages 22, 20, 15, 14, 13, and 11. This post is probably best suited for those of you who have girls aged 11-18 in your lives!

If you are having trouble connecting, maybe suggest a thrift store shopping spree?

Here is my panel:

These Nikes are super popular. I love the colors they chose!

Also, just so that you know, my niece Nora was diagnosed after a year of medical mysteries (including multiple ER visits and hospital stays) with something called POTS and is currently on a feeding tube that she has to wear 24/7. She is such a strong girl, but this has been such a hard year for her and her mom, my sister.

Favorite Stores:

Thrift! – I love this! I think it is so great that teens have embraced shopping second hand.

American Eagle/Aerie – I love my Aerie items. The quality is great and the price is not bad.

Forever 21 – I haven’t been in one in years.

Dry Goods – there is one at our mall and I went in several years ago. It seemed overpriced.

Aeropostale – we have one but I don’t think I’ve ever been in one.

Dick’s – I guess this is where they could get their Nikes, but also the athletic clothing is so popular.

Champion – I think we have an outlet store at our outlet mall?

Target – Yes!

They all agreed that it’s less about the brand and more about what the item is.

They love the trends of Mom jeans, belts, and cropped shirts.

They also wanted me to mention that they like natural hair with volume and they like layers.

What do the teens in your life wear?

  1. Wow, you have a lot of nieces! My teenage niece likes those stores too – not sure she thrifts but I know she is on board with the others.
    I’m sorry your niece has to be on that feeding tube – bless her heart; that is tough for anyone but as a beautiful teenage girl I can only imagine. Keeping her and your sister in my prayers!

    1. I do! It’s really fun to shop with a teen when it’s not your own kid!
      It is really hard right now. I am hoping the doctors at the Cleveland Clinic get her to a more functioning stage. Thank you!

  2. What a beautiful panel of ladies! I know you are one proud aunt. Hadley loves Aerie…I do too (but I don’t let her know it because how embarrassing to have a mom who wants to shop at the same store. 😆) she can always find something at Target (again, she must get it from me 😂) she’s in that in between which can be awkward. Tops are fine as women xs but pants/shorts can be an issue finding the balance of “not being a kid” to fitting into a women xs if that makes sense

    1. Thank you! I am; I wish I lived closer to them. Ha! She is in that really hard stage where you want age appropriate clothing that she still thinks has some “drip”. You don’t want her to look like a Real Housewive.

      1. EXACTLY! she tried on shorts yesterday and preferred the smaller size even though the bigger size fit. She said, “they are too baggy.” I said, “do you mean appropriate?” 🤣🤣

  3. Ahhh they are all darling. I have a 14 year old who thank goodness wears a school uniform. The teen style is all about comfort and boy is it a struggle finding dress up clothes (and shoes…I am ok with sneakers and dresses but sometimes you need a decent pair of shoes!).

    1. Thank you, Tina! My kids wore uniforms k-8 and I sing their praises. It made life so much easier. Dress up clothes are so hard. You don’t want your 14 year old to look like a Real Housewive! It’s hard to find that perfect age appropriate thing.

  4. Isn’t it fun that the teenagers over here (on the other side of the world) looks exactly the same!? Very ill-fitting jeans, some bare midriff, longer hair… Your nieces are so cute! How fun for them with all the cousins!
