Well hello there September- I’m just going to go ahead and be that cliched mother who wonders how this has happened? It does seem like only a minute since my minis broke up for their summer hols.
Kitting the kids out can feel a mammoth task, with shoes, uniform, PE kits, pencil cases, etc etc. So we were very happy when Debenhams came to the rescue, offering a helping hand. Launching the most extensive school wear range they’ve ever had, there are all of the above items and more available in the much loved department store.
Winter coat buying forever feels one of the most exciting bits about autumn, and I used to love that experience just before going back to school. Yes, it may be slightly too warm to wear them at the moment, but I’m sure cosy outerwear will be a staple soon.
Both jackets from bluezoo, L chose the Navy Faux Fur Trim Parka Coat (priced from £38-£44) and T wanted their Navy Water Resistant Parka (£38-£44). Each coat is snug, great quality and beautifully lined. Well set for winter weather, the coats are machine washable to boot. As we live in Northumberland, our colder season can often be harsh, and so I’m a bit fussy about which school coats we buy. These more than fit my requirements, and L and T are keen to pop them on asap.
Other items we stocked up on include: a Pack of 2 Grey Girls’ Skinny Fit Trousers (£11-£15 depending on size), White Roll Top Ankle Socks (£5), Pack of 2 Boys’ Grey Pleated Front Trousers (£11-£17) and a Pack of 5 Grey Fresh Feet Socks (£5-£6). All of these prices however were less at the checkout, as there is currently a brilliant 20% off selected school uniform lines.
That’s the kids sorted, I just need to come to terms with them moving up a year. Eek. I know L and T going back does help with the life juggle, but I definitely feel an ache when they return to that routine. Summer has been fun, busy and frantic, yet it’s now time for their latest school chapter. And, breathe.
The clothing mentioned was gifted to us by Debenhams for the purpose of this blog. There is currently 20% off selected school uniform lines. As always, all thoughts (and mini mes) my own.
