I’m astounded today for Trendy Thursday. As always I’ve been stocking up in sales and buying the next size up in readiness for next year.
Although N has been growing heightwise recently, he’s still (according to standard sizes) an age 3-4 in clothes, or a 4. So I’ve been buying age 4-5 or 5-6 depending on what’s available and whether the clothes are winter or summer based.
I’ve bought a couple of bits from Mini club at Boots, and some Frugi items, but as I was sorting N’s wardrobe and clearing out old t shirts that are too small, I rechecked the new larger items I’d bought. I noticed that the stripy miniclub t shirt is rather narrow even though it’s an age 5-6.
Cue bringing it to the ‘wear now’ section of the wardrobe. It’s a lovely t shirt – quite thick and very soft jersey, and having a digger on it means no arguments over wearing it in the morning.
We added denim shorts, and his trusty sandals in readiness for nursery.
- T shirt – mini club at Boots
- Shorts – Tu at Sainsbury’s
- Sandals – Pediped
Do you ever buy larger clothes and forget about them? Or do you buy for the current season only?
