The rainy days and morning chill are starting to creep in. I have spent the school holidays decluttering My Pigeon Pairs wardrobe in preparation for the onslaught of jumpers, tracksuits and jeans. Master O faired much better than Little Miss A. He still has a few collared long sleeve shirts that will see him through another winter and a great all weather jacket. Little Miss A however has outgrown almost everything!
Like any shopping trip I prepare, prepare, prepare. To be honest, Target has always been my first top for kids clothes. I love the way they release Kids Clothing in “stories”. By matching outfits within a particular “story” I know that I will get many versatile mix and match outfits! Plus it is always reasonably priced and good quality. By coordinating a selection of mix and match outfits I can stretch my fashion dollar further!

My TOP 5 TIPS
for Childrens Winter Wardrobes
1. Layers – Long sleeved shirts under dresses, tights under skirts, cardigans on the top. This will not only have you prepared for any weather situation but also extend thier summer wardrobe into the cilly months.
2. Colour Pallete. Choose items with complimentary colour pallets. This Pink, Mint and Navy combo allows maximum mix and match opportunities.
3. Neutral Accessories. Invest in a good pair or two of neutral flats and boots. This will see them through the whole of winter. Match them with a cute scarf or beanie for the coldest of days.
4. Buy Them Big. I try to buy kids winter clothes slightly bigger than usual. This gives them room for all those layers underneath and may even help see them through more than one winter.
5. Quality and Versatility. Look for good quality clothes that have been tried and tested. Hunt out outfits that can be dressed up or down for a variety of occasions.
