Back to Cool!

Back to school shopping can be one of the single stressful times of the summer holiday, I find it so hard to squeeze in the time to do the all important shopping which, as we all know, can be an expensive time depending where you get everything from.

We are normally a Next shopper with uniforms, but this year I wanted to try something a little different and test out the school uniform range at Debenhams, and to my surprise they are wonderful!.

The range all being available online it is even easier to order up and get ready without heading out into the masses, and what with all the panic stricken parents desperately preparing for the all important September term dates it is so much easier to simply log on and order.

Price is Important

One of the things that is so important with back to school shopping, is always the price of everything on top of all the other extra little bits that go along with it, but Debenhams delivers fantastic quality school uniforms at a purse friendly price with various multi packs, and if you are like me having more than one child to buy for, the lower the price is always better, but a danger is always that you take away any quality when reaching for the bargains, but not here.

Lots of Options

If you are anything like me than you love a little bit of variety with what your children wear in school. Debenhams has such a good collection of uniform. From a wide selection of skirts and pinafores for the girls and for the boys, trousers or shorts along with two types of shirt styles.

What I liked most about the range of school uniform was the fact that they also included rain coats and bags all on the website. In all in different colors so that you can find something perfect for whatever school your child goes too. Debenhams has everything from primary school age to secondary school age sizes, which is great for when you are ordering for more than one child in different school years.

Also what I found perfect was they also supplied underwear, PE kits and shoes so you essentially can get everything in one shop, which is fantastic, if you like me have more than one child which can make shopping be a murder.

I cannot express enough to those I meet, just how wonderful the quality of the jumpers are. Now that the children are going into the autumn term with things getting colder, their jumpers will be worn daily and be put under a lot of stress. The shirts feel soft and of course having two different designs for girls and boys, although you could buy the same style if you aren’t picky like me. The skirts and trousers look smart, each having a inner elastic band to help fit your child. Which is handy when children do not all follow the same growing patterns.

The shirts themselves, which you will be delighted to hear, are machine washable and able to go into the tumble dryer for those cold and wet days in the autumn/winter term.

I am delighted we decided to test out a different company for the children’s school uniforms this year, and I feel like we are all prepared for the new term ahead.

Are you all set for the new term? just over three weeks to go!!

Summer is finally (almost) here and what better than to share with you some of the beautiful dresses that are on offer in Next at the moment..

I am usually very much a leggings and tshirt kind of person when it comes to dressing Robin, so actually branching out and getting her some pretty summer dresses is a big leap for me, I am always worried her beautiful skin would get burnt in the sun but in the long run its better to be cool with a nice flowy dress than be stuck in a skin tight pair of sparkly leggings..

Some of the dresses I got for Robin are just simply beautiful, I think my favorite of the lot of them has to be the Lemon Print dress, its just so pretty and can work so well for a wedding outfit, its got this adorable little collar which when Robin wears it with a cardigan sits over the top of it and just looks so adorable.

I can see many of these looking so pretty in the autumn and winter too, with some jeans or tights layered with long sleeve vests, the only one I cant seem to love is the flamingo shirt one, the legs are far to short for my liking and I prefer a much longer leg, and of course with the fact that Robin is tiny enough as it is, it doesn’t sit in the right spot on her body to make it look right, but I know we will make plenty use of the thin shirt that came with the set.

The little sandals are perfect, Its really hard to find shoes that I 1, like on Robin and 2, fit her properly, I do like the look of the jelly shoes but you need to wear them with socks or the rubber, rubs onto the skin and can cause cuts but I do think they are really cute.

I have seen to many more wonderful cute dresses I want to get Robin for when we go away and for the summer in general, her wardrobe is mainly autumn/winter stuff as she is still very much a tiny girl and I didn’t feel the need to get anything new as everything still fits her perfectly fine in the 12 -18 size but the weather changes everything.

What exciting things have you seen in the shops lately for the little ones? or perhaps for yourself?

Until next time
