Autumn Clothes for Kids

Autumn Clothes for Kids

So, I guess we are to assume from the recent nosedive in temperatures, oh and ALL the rain, that Summer has come to an abrupt end.

I don’t feel as cheated as I usually do by an early Autumn, which is probably because I do feel like we had a decent amount of sunshine this year.

As always, it never really is quite enough though.

Give me one week of sun and I want a month… one month and I want two… but 2-months and I think it is here to stay forever.

There I was one day, confidently posting about Zachy probably being able to still wear his summer wardrobe through to October and then the very next day, I found myself in a debate with the Greek God(zilla) over whether it is too early to pop the heating back on in September.

We compromised on 1-hour in the morning, on the condition I wear an extra jumper around the house for the rest of the day.  I am sure he will be quick to extend this hour when he realises that the jumpers I have taken to wearing around the house are all his… *rubs palms together mischievously*

I do love Autumn.  I get excited when it is time to pull out my jackets, printed scarves and ankle boots again.  For one thing, they cover all the parts of my body that wobble the most, therefore also allowing me to continue living in denial that some of the clothes hidden beneath them are not fitting a little more snugly than they used to.

Rain, I can definitely live without, but living in this country means I will never have to.

We got absolutely drenched on our third ever school run and although running in and out of the sea in open toe sandals is lots and lots of fun, walking through dirty rain puddles in them does not hold quite the same appeal.

At all.

By the time we reached the school, Zachy’s feet were soaked and he had rain splashes all up his trouser legs.

At this moment, two things were very clear to me:

1. I was not making the best first impression on the other school mums, or their offspring

2. I needed to kit out Zachy’s Autumn school wardrobe

Now, I could get very carried away buying kid’s clothes online but my current employment status means that I have to be more thrifty than ever before.

It can’t hurt to do a little bit of online window shopping every now and then though… can it?

Greek God(zilla) avert your eyes now!

And this my friends, is exactly how the Greek God(zilla) feared I would spend my days.

    Love the raincoat – excellent for spotting wayward boys in the park! You’ll never lose him. We got one from GAP for Little Chap when he was three. He’s nearly five and I think we could just about still squeeze him into it if we try. Sadly in these thrifty school fee paying times, it’s been replaced by a functional plain navy blue school regulation mac 🙁 What a fun way to spend your new days though 😉 x

      We are lucky that Z does not have to wear a uniform but we did buy him a fab coat from GAP last year that he still easily fits into x
