Dressing your teen for homecoming can be a compromising time for both of you. Here is why.
She is only 14. She loves to shop. She is impressionable. She wants cute.
(Imagine that to some Ed Sheeran beat)
Let me show you what my daughter and I found online while dress shopping for homecoming. I was very shocked at what is considered appropriate of a “junior/teen”. Don’t get me wrong, some ladies (grown women) can fit into these dresses but I wish there was a way to separate these into an “inappropriate for teens” page.
Can you say Pretty Woman?
This is more for Kim Kardashian
than it is for a teen in high school.
All boobs and leg. Not what I need
some hormone enraged high school
boy looking at.
I will show you legs and boobs in this
AND I will tease you with some hip and
waist skin too, NO PANTIES!
Now after all that, I want to show you the ideal dress. This is the dress that I believe to be a great compromise for me and my daughter. I am loving that hair too! As my daughter would say, That Hair Though…
This is the dress I would have loved
for my daughter. It covers the cleavage
and it goes about mid thigh.
That hair tho!
My daughter and I compromised even MORE! Here is the dress we chose together.
I got the price point I wanted with some coverage and she got something cute and stylish. She is going to pair with some colorful jewelry and shoes. I would have still liked something that covered the bosom but I can’t win them all.
As a mother I cherished spending time shopping for dresses with my daughter. I hope that she looks back on it and remembers the laughs we had.
What is your daughter wearing to homecoming? What compromises did you make?
