I always love a good excuse to be able to get the boys dressed up and wearing nice clothing. Normally they will wear clothes that are cheaper so that it doesn't matter if they get paint on them or fall in the mud but when we have plans to go out somewhere, I always make sure that we have nice clothes tucked away for special occasions.
With Christmas coming, there seems to be loads of special days where you want your children to look a bit more formal. Meeting Santa, School fêtes and even parties are all around at this time of year and so I have looked around to try and find some of the nicest children's clothing for the party season for the boys to wear.
Tartan seems to be in at the moment and so this Brushed Checked Shirt from F&F at Tesco is totally in style and looks great too. I love the red as that's what Christmas is known for and it just looks so pretty on. The material is so soft to touch and it even has a gingham check cuff and neck lining to match.
The brown boots match in perfectly with the red coloured clothing and they have a faux fur trim which keeps Charlie's feet and ankles nice and warm. Not only do they look stylish but they are comfortable and have good grip on the bottom so will be great for when the snow comes too.
I teamed these items with some bright red canvas chinos to finish off the look. These chinos are easy to wear and would look great for casual and smarter looks. They have an adjustable waist to fit perfectly to any shape and have two pockets at the front with mock back pockets and dart in at the knee.
You can also get the chinos in grey too and that is what I got for Thomas who went for a more understated look. The one thing I like about children's clothing from Tesco is that the trousers always have an elasticated waist which can be adjusted just by simply moving where the button is fixed onto the elastic. It is such a simple thing but means that children of all shapes and sizes can wear them and just alter to fit.
Thomas then got a lovely pair of pumps that have a leather look. They look very retro and so are in style this season and the Velcro fastening means that Thomas can put them on and off himself.
I love the party season as it means that I get to see the boys all dressed up. Now just to wait for Christmas!
