We first hit Boots and their 'mini club' range. There is an offer on at present. Buy one get one half price. This combined with my parents club advantage card points and a 20% odd voucher meant I got nearly £30 worth of clothes for just under £20! Also if you pop your card in one of those advantage machines you can often get £5 off when you spend £20 on clothes.
Erin knew we mainly needed to look for cardys and tights. She chose this simple pink cardy and a spotty one too. Both brilliant for preschool. I know that they will wash and, more importantly, tumble dry well.
Tights are an issue. As she wears them everyday (refuses a trouser or a legging. I once mentioned traccy bottoms. All hell broke loose!). So I splashed out on these ones as tights from other shops like Primark just do not last long enough. Her gusset always ends up round her knees (we've all been there. It is a horrible feeling).
Next we went to George at Asda. Erin is obsessed with Disney and I must admit I HATE and LOATHE character tops but Erin loves them so much. So I got her this little Sophia top (£5). She teemed it with this dead cheap (£4) denim skirt. She has three of these. Which is ridiculous but she wears them all the time.
We opted for two more cardys. A beaut flowery one with cute flower buttons for £8 and a sparkly one with a lace trim for £10. Erin is under strict instructions this sparkly one is not for preschool. She literally would get spaghetti or paint or poo or worse someone else's poo down it within 3 mins.
So after our little splurge (well as much as you can splurge at Asda and Boots) Erin is super excited for preschool tomorrow. And I can relax knowing we will not be having the usual morning 'discussion' (fight).
