Holiday Clothing without spending a ton! #CookiesKids #CBias
Every year I come to the same dilemma about Holiday clothing for the kids. I mean we need something cute but usually when you hit the stores, they charge an arm and a leg for an outfit they will probably where once or twice. Since we don’t have occasions to wear dress clothing often, it’s hard to justify the cost for me.
Having two kids makes the challenge of dressy clothes shopping slightly harder. Luckily this year, Emmie only needed some legging to go with her outfit since my mother-in-law had recently bought her a really pretty dress.
This year, instead of heading out to the store, we decided to check a couple of online stores. CookiesKids.Com was by far the most affordable. I wanted to get Landon the outfit below from the Boy’s Dress Wear section.
When I showed it to him though, he wasn’t really a fan. My husband thought it would be fun to let him pick out what shirt/sweater he wanted to wear this year. I agreed since Landon is getting older. He knows the colors he likes.
He picked out a red and gray stripped sweater. It was perfect for the slacks that I wanted to get him. I had also thought about buying him this suit. I mean, I know it might come in handy on a rare occasion since he never seems to grow but Chis thought it was too much.
Also to make sure we were able to get the perfect fit for Landon’s pants, we used the Alva Kids icon near the outfit. Landon is really either a 3t or a 4t. I was worried getting him the 4t would be too big on his waist so it really helped to have that tool!
Since his slacks, sweater and Emmie’s leggings cost about $25, I also let him and pick a shirt. This was Landon’s “shopping trip” so he had a lot of fun picking his own clothes.He decided on a Sponge bob shirt.
I love how easy #CookiesKids made it to find the perfect holiday outfit for him! Doesn’t he look handsome in his new outfit?
Emmie loved wearing the Spongebob shirt of course!
And I couldn’t resist a brother sister picture!
