The temperature outside in our neck of the woods (OK, city), just dropped from 75 to 50 in the past few days. I hate it when the cold arrives so suddenly. Yes, I know it's October and it was bound to happen eventually, but I wish the transition was a little more gradual.
Anyhow, the sudden chill brought me to face the fact that all of my kids' last years jackets and coats are small on them. Guess what I spent time doing today?
I usually buy two jackets for each of my kids. One, I call the "mid-weather" jacket. The second is a down filled coat for the coldest of days. My daughter also gets a dressy wool coat for the holidays, 'cause she's a big girl and needs to feel sophisticated. Did I mention I hate Winter? So many layers to research, buy and put on. Wouldn't it be nice if we could just hibernate till Spring?
Luckily my outerwear browsing coincided with Columbus Day Weekend, which means SALES! Many websites are offering various discounts on all orders, including winter layers.
Here are some of the best sites to shop for kids' outerwear and their current deals:
J.Crew - 30% off full price items and additional 40% off sale items with code WEEKENDPLANS.
