I think of October as long-sleeved-shirt weather, whether or not the weather cooperates, and so this is when I’m digging out boxes of handmedowns and sale set-asides, seeing what we have enough of and what we might need to buy.
Penguin Heart tee (photo from TheChildrensPlace.com). I bought this for Elizabeth this year. She loves penguins, she loves purple, she loves cuteness—it was pretty clear it was going home with us.
Long sleeve penguin graphic t-shirt (photo from LandsEnd.com). I think we might need this one as well. (She’d prefer it in the pale pink version, but I like the green even more.)
Sports graphic waffle henley (photo from Gap.com). I love when I find a shirt that happens to have one of the kids’ ages on it. I think Henry would love this for wearing to “four-year-old club” (preschool).
Boys Mock-Neck sweater (photo from OldNavy.com). Edward has been huddling around the house in a coat since late August, so I tend to buy him sweaters for winter. I think the mock-neck style is so cute on him.
Ruffle graphic tee (photo from Gap.com). Awwwww. Bunnies. This would be so sweet on my 2-year-old niece.
Dinosaur t-shirt (photo from BodenUSA.com). How much do we love dinosaur shirts at our house? RAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! that’s how much.
Double-layer jersey tee (photo from LLBean.com). This one makes me feel a little sentimental because we have almost the exact same shirt (a slightly darker blue, and an orange collar instead of green), bought when my oldest son was in first grade—and now my third son is in first grade and will wear it this year. …That sounded more sentimental in my head. But I remember buying it for my oldest and thinking it was such a Big Kid Shirt! And now he’s this big hulking kid nearly eye-to-eye with me, REALLY a Big Kid now, and Edward seems like such a baaaaaby!
Layered logo tee (photo from BodenUSA.com). My niece wore a Boden jumper in the mouse pattern the other day, and many of us nearly lost consciousness from the cuteness. It’s a real danger, people.
