The boys have been on holiday from school for just over a week now and the weather has been unpredictable at best. We have gone from blistering heat and sunshine to monsoon-like rain and thunderstorms in a matter of moments. One minute the children are playing in the garden on the swing and slide and the next they are hot-footing it indoors to snuggle under a duvet.
This type of weather really causes a dilemma in how to dress them for a day out. It’s fairly impossible to plan for all eventualities of British weather in one kids’ outfit so I think the key is layering. One online company who are very understanding of the British weather is Boden . They have a beautiful range of kidswear at mini Boden which is really great looking but also really useful.
Thurston was very lucky to be sent one of their Towelling Hoodies in Ocean Skull. The outside of the hoody is 85% cotton and the inside is lovely and soft made of 100% cotton. The Towelling Hoody is a really useful piece of clothing as it is a great cover up at the beach or after the swimming pool, without being too hot and sweaty for the summer months. The towelling fabric is really lightweight and comfortable and the hood is really useful particularly for kids like mine who are very anti-hats!
This hoody has been brilliantly useful for playing in the garden in the evening or wearing on the stroll home from the beach. It’s also been really handy on those days where the weather is not particularly warm but too warm to wear a normal hoody or jumper. Thurston has found this hoody to be really comforting and cosy when he has started to felt cold which has meant that we have been able to squeeze a few more minutes out of an outing or just being outside, whereas usually he would have become upset and we would have had to cut our day short.
This Towelling Hoody is a really versatile item that gets loads of wear over the warmer months but is also perfect for layering up during the cold months of the year too. You can’t go wrong really. There are loads more gorgeous pieces in their new Autumn range on the website so that is definitely worth a browse. I’m really hoping I can get Thurston this Duffle Coat for when he starts school in the Autumn! The kids will end up looking better than I do!
