Money is exceptionally tight at the moment but the boys still keep growing and need new clothes regardless (they obviously didn’t get the memo!). Hubbie and I can make ours last (until almost threadbare!), but the boys end up with their little ankles on show if trousers are not promptly replaced and jumpers usually have sleeves to their elbows because of the speed they are maturing. So if I see a sale I am quick to make some purchases just to stop them looking out of sorts amongst their peers.
melijoe have a summer sale with final markdowns of up to 70% at the moment, what a fine sale that is! It’s been hard to narrow it down to a few items as so much has caught my eye this time round. I particularly liked the sale t-shirts as they have lots of interesting slogans and branded names at a much more reasonable price than usual.
I would say if you fancy a browse to do so quickly before they run out of stock. Below is a wish list of my favourite pieces (so hands off them!):
Billybandit Flamed cotton jersey t-shirt £12 (reduced from £19)
Every child loves being a superhero and letting their imagination run wild. A t-shirt that claims they are the most powerful one will obviously go down well.
Tommy Hilfiger White flamed jersey t-shirt £16 (reduced from £22)
With the wording “Make Me Smile” it might encourage more positivity in the family!
Aston Martin Navy Blue Sweatshirt £14 (reduced from £45!)
I like the bold red lettering on the sleeves and it looks smarter than most of the jumpers the boys currently own
Diesel Hoodie £29 (reduced from £47)
Picked for the slogan “the best way is my way” – they think that already so might as well wear clothing that confirms it!!!
Converse All Star canvas low top trainers £20 (reduced from £33)
I think converse are very trendy but I usually begrudge paying too much for trainers that they grow out of so fast, so shopping in the sales means I can get the brands I love but at the prices I am willing to pay.
Finally my boys might be seen wearing some iconic brands and the latest fashions because the price is right!
