What the Kids Wore: Jackets & Hoodies

Arlo is at the height where a lot of his 18-24 month clothes are too small, but his age 2-3 sized things swamp him. It’s so frustrating that brands can’t just match sizing across the board as some things in 2-3 are okay and other brands he’s still got lots of life left in the 18-24 sized! Anyway, I have been enjoying sorting out his new wardrobe, I bought a lot of it from Zara in the post-Christmas sales and also got a few bundles from ebay for childminder days and messy days. Zara leggings and joggers are so much more fun than jeans, plus I think they must be pretty restricting too.

He also fits his new personalised hoody from PrezzyBox, it’s lined with a soft fleece and isn’t too thick so can be worn as a jumper under a coat when it’s chilly without being too bulky. A zip up the front and two pockets means it’s easy to get on and off and he can fill the pockets with all his ‘essentials’ (normally a toy car and some stones.) But the best bit is that his name is emblazoned on the back! You can choose from a selection of colours but we went for black text on a grey hoody. The hood is nice and spacious, too.

Athena’s new jacket I am pretty envious of, grey with pink detailing and ‘Always Dreaming’ on the back! It’s from TU at Sainsbury’s and I nabbed it in one of their 25% off weekends earlier in the month. I had to get it in 6-7 years though as they didn’t have her size, but at least it will fit for a while yet! She’s in some 5-6 things now anyway, being so tall! I’ve turned to cuffs up on the sleeves for now! Also, look how grown up she looks!

We were sent Arlo's hoody for the purpose of this review.
