When my toddler started nursery school this fall (and came home covered in paint, glue, mud, food, etc.), I decided that his wardrobe needed a redress. Cashmere jumpers are just not ideal- (who has time to hand-wash anymore)?? Actually, let’s face it- anything even slightly expensive is NOT a good idea. The cheaper, the better.
So I went on a search: I wanted cheap, but not cheaply made.
And I found it at H&M! You have to be really selective- (avoid the ubiquitous tacky slogans and flashy logos), but H&M sells a few items that have now become staples in BOTH my boys’ closets!
These long-sleeved stripey tees are not only good-fitting and cute, but they’re really good quality, and you can wash them at 60 degrees, (which will surely get rid of those nasty paint stains)! They’re irresistibly cheap. At only £4.99 a pop (for kids 1-8) and £2.99 for babies, you could buy one in every color and for all your children (and still not spend as much as one cashmere jumper)!
The only shame is that you can’t shop on-line, (which means braving the crowds and sorting through the bad to find the good).
But I did just see on their website that on-line shopping is available in some countries. Amsterdam is one of them! Lucky Esther…
