I have a 13 year old daughter who is incredibly difficult to shop for. Unlike most 13 year old girls she hates to go shopping. If we go I can never even get her to try things on. I end up taking things back and forth to the store all the time. I pick out things I think she would like and of course she doesn't or they don't fit right. To top it all off she is very athletic and doesn't like to wear frilly girl clothes. She likes jeans and sweatpants t-shirts sweatshirts and sneakers. I saw the sweatpants and I thought maybe she would like them I thought they looked pretty good I figured it was worth a try. When I gave them to her I actually got a wow and an oohhh. Anyone who has a teenage daughter knows how heartwarming that was. She has been wearing them day after day. At the end of the day she's giving them to me and asking me to wash them so she could wear them again tomorrow. So they hold up very well through wash and made my finicky child very happy.
