Time to hit the shops

The age gap between my two boys
is only 21 months but lately it feels like it has narrowed again, my youngest
is almost as tall as his older brother now and I don’t think it will be all too
long before he eclipses him completely. 
So my wonderful system of passing on clothes is starting to not be quite
as effective, eldest still needs the clothes that I was once getting another
wear out of from my youngest.

Naturally my youngest is very pleased with this because it
means he finally gets NEW clothes, if you’re a younger sibling this is an
exciting prospect indeed. Usually you
make do with hand me down’s, it becomes a way of life. If youngest does end up being the taller of
the two, then I cannot imagine I will convince my eldest to wear his cast-offs,
he has never had to face that dilemma before. 
So now I am in a position I need more clothes its time to hit the
“shops”.

I don’t have much to spend, so I
have been shopping around, I spotted a few items from Esprit. I like that some of the clothes I saw on there were 100% organic
cotton so more gentle for children especially those with sensitive skin. We tend to spend our weekends on long walks
so don’t dress very formally, its hoodies and t-shirts, so we can move freely
and comfortably.


I am tempted to pick up a couple
of the basic sweatshirt hoodie as it looks lightweight but warm enough for this
time of year, I find it hard to get my two to wear coats, they seem to have
reached that age where its not the done thing! 
No idea why this happens, but it seems a common problem, least with
hoodies they are always happy enough to wear them without grumbles of
complaint.

I also liked Saltrock
clothing
that we reviewed a while back. 
I had another look at their site and they seem to have developed the
range, the boys would like the skate boarding dinosaurs and the gorilla
listening to music! Designs like that
appeal to their idea of what cool is. I
have quickly established I am not cool enough in their eyes anymore… so at
least if I bought these t-shirts it might give me some much-needed kudos.
