A little chill in the air at night is certainly hinting that Autumn is here, meaning it’s time to think about ditching the sandals, lowering the hemlines and starting to add a couple of layers to our summer wardrobes. I’m super excited to be taking part in The Warehouse’s Fashion Challenge this season, meaning I will be heading in store as an official blogger to dress our family head to toe in the latest trends for $200 or less!
So first things first: E does not wear pants. Ever. So updating his wardrobe for seasonal temperature fluctuations is essentially an exercise in layering! Second thing, my delicious 10 year old is a big guy, we shop in the men’s department so sometimes it can be a little tricky finding on-trend and age appropriate outfits that he loves. But, dude picked this whole outfit himself including the shoes in approximately seven minutes, and he totally nailed it right? The graphic print shorts are my absolute fave, they are the perfect ‘above-the-knee’ length which is hard to find when you are 10 years old and shopping in the mens department! The DC t-shirt was on sale for $15!! I initially thought this combined with the shorts was going to look a bit too blue, but I think the outfit just comes across as very smart and well-styled.
The super-wide drawstring in the zip hoody is a nice, updated look for this common winter staple. This sweat will get worn to death so I’m loving it’s neutral base which ties in perfectly with the grey Robbie Shoes that E chose! What a hip little guy – I think I’ll keep him x
