I often forget to update my older son’s wardrobe. The younger one has clothing to wear and grow into en masse.
However, it never fails that a calendar turn to a new season leaves my 5YO with floods (I like to call the “mapris,” men’s capris) and too tight t-shirts, which hey! look great on on super hot fireman, but not so much on skinny little boys.
I invested a small fortune into shorts last year, and those seem to fit, but we are quickly growing out of the over, oversized H&M tees in the 2-4 size… really more like a 5-6 size. And luckily, I have been able to ban the bears watching TV on a shirt that says, “Salt Lake City,” a gift from unnamed family members.
So out with the old and in with the new. New J.Crew that is. As soon as their bi-monthly 30% off sale hits, I’m going to fill my virtual cart with adorable, distressed tees and sweatshirts in one size larger, so I don’t have to do this again next year… barring a ridiculous growth spurt.
I have fallen in love all over again with DVF this past year. I’m not sure if I’ve just been more aware, or if she has really kicked it up a notch. But the woman known originally for her knit wrap dresses, is now doing an extra special line for girls.
The majority of our clothing budget is spent on our two boys.
It’s so much more fun to buy for them because their sizes are so predictable. They always fit into the size that their age says they are supposed to fit into. If anything gets too small, it’s only because the sleeves or the legs are too short. It’s never because they have to lay down on their beds to get their jeans buttoned, like one person in my household, who shall remain nameless.
So when I received one of my daily emails from Barney’s this morning, I immediately had to check out the sale on the most adorable Christopher Fischer cashmere sweaters. Now, I will admit that I have only invested in cashmere for the older of my boys. And the youngest of my boys, specifically, will NEVER get cashmere anything because of his lack of table manners, but these cashmere sweaters for kids from Barneys.com (sale $98) are almost irresistable.
