The save buys…

by Sofia   -   in Good things for kids  Shopping

Onpa jotenkin todella elokuinen aamu. Ei kylmä, mutta villatakki piti laittaa päälle, hieman harmaa, ei sada vielä, mutta kosteaa. Silti reilu aavistus kesää edelleen onneksi ilmassa. Minua kyllä kutkuttelee jo innostuksena tuo tuleva syksy joka on yksi lempi vuodenajoistani. Eilen blogissa oli niitä ihanuuksia joita ostimme syksyyn ja nyt nämä muutamat edulliset perusostoksetkin vinkkinä jakoon…

So yesterday I shared some of the things we splurged on a little and today I will share the things we saved on this Fall. I already ordered these but they have not yet arrived ( they should be coming today actually)…

We have some sweat pants we bought for the Summer ( from Petit Bateau etc.), but as sweats are the nicest thing to wear at home and even at pre-school or on sports days at school, I ordered these in light blue & pink to wear with the cashmere hoodies. I love pink & grey and light- & navy blue as colour combos. These cost 10 € each. I hope they are soft inside so they will be lovely to pull over the ballet or gymnastics outfit after practise.

We  still use a lot of leggings. I buy them in very basic colours like navy, white & grey marl. Petit Bateau t-shirt, these leggings and sweatshirts or cardigans are a staple in our repertoire. We also use them under stripy jersey dresses & with a little longer breton stripe shirt for instance.

For the Fall

by Sofia   -   in Good things for kids  Shopping

Tässä vähän ostoksia tälle syksylle. Ja huomenna jatketaan edullisemmilla peruslöydöillä. Niillä jotka raaskii helposti jättää sinne eskariin varavaatteiksi…

Even though it´s a lovely warm August in Finland, the Fall is arriving sooner or later. We are ready for the cooler air with some of our absolute favourite brands.

I´m the kind of person who loves to splurge on certain things but then I save on others . One of the things we usually splurge more on are outerwear that needs to stand the tests of weather in Finland ( I don´t even know if you can call it a splurge as it´s really a necessity in Finland and the prices don´t even differ so much from brand to brand), good shoes for everyday use and then there is cashmere. I just love love love the idea that my girls have the softest wool on their skin. It does not itch or scratch and it looks luxurious. I know it costs more but the I save on something else ( I will share some of the “save buys” tomorrow). My girls, especially our second grader is now at a stage in life where hoodies are all the rage. So I´m super glad I found a perfect cashmere hoodie for the girls in Youngest Fashion. They only had two left in our size so we bought one now and will buy another one when more colours in our size come in. Now we have the grey one and I think navy or light blue will be the other colour.

We also stocked up on our favourite cashmere caps that are a must. They take us from the first cooler days all the way to winter. I have raved about these same hats on the blog for years and not in vain. They just are the best we ever had! Soft, warm, classic, good model, go with anything. Perfect in every sense. And the best colours too, just the right shades! The hats and the hoodies  are both just as good for boys and girls! The brand is Oscar & Valentine and we buy ours in Finland from the ever so helpful and lovely kids store Youngest Fashion ( and hint hint to all you fellow mamas who do not know how to sow… they have a sewing service too so you can take care of those alterations for say, your own skirt or work pants at the same time).

… for overnight camp…

Tänään tyttöjen valinnat mielikuvitusleirille. Oli tosi hauska nähdä mitä he valitsivat kun saivat vapaat kädet ja kuunnella kuinka seitsemänvuotias ja viisivuotias neuvottelivat ostosten “järkevyydestä”….
