Trendy Thursday: campervan shirts and pack-a-macs

This week we had a few days away in Bristol.  Going away with children is having to be ready for everything, so it’s quite hard to pack light.  I thought I’d share two of the items I found essential for Trendy Thursday.

I always like N to have one smart shirt included in case we eat somewhere nice (plus it’s always nice to have one meal you dress up for), and a second essential has to be a light jacket for summer.

N really likes wearing a shirt, and although we have a few for him, they’re mostly saved for meals out or parties.  I always think they can’t be as comfortable as t shirts for nursery, but maybe I should let him wear them more frequently to get more wear out of them.  I love shirts with funky prints on, and this one with campervans is great fun.

Chinos – Tu at Sainsbury’s (I think)
Sandals – Pediped

N’s pack-a-mac is really handy.  It’s again a cute design of cars, and I like that the green’s quite unusual. We have a great waterproof coat for N but it’s too warm for summer, so this one is great as it’s literally a top layer rather than providing that much warmth.  The coat itself will fold into a pocket on the back, so I can just pop it into my handbag rather than having to drag round a coat everywhere or having to take a bigger bag.  Now I just need one too!

Burgundy chinos – hmm, think these are Tu as well!
Pumps – Startrite

I shouldn’t really be surprised at the amount of Saisnbury’s clothes in N’s wardrobe as I always stock up when their 25% off sale is on.  Are you a fan of their clothes too?

  1. Gorgeous shirt! The pack-a-mac sounds like just what I need for my 2! I hate dragging coats with us “just in case”! I am a fan of Sainsburys clothes too. They last really well and have some right bargains during the sale and when you can save 25% – Hope you had a fab holiday! Thanks for linking up with #TT_Thursday!

  2. Loving the shirt!! I also keep Lewis some shirts in his cupboard for special occasions, meals out, or just to look smarter for days out. Sorry for the delay in commenting, its been a hectic week #TT_Thursday

  3. I love campervan shirts and this one is cute. I made one for my youngest last year and he can just about wear it still. Tshirts are OK, but I like it when I can persuade him to wear a shirt.
