I thought I had finished the kid’s fall clothing shopping a few weeks ago. When it all arrived though, I quickly realized that Bella’s tiny little body will not hold up any of her jeans, even with the adjustable waist bands. She’ll probably grow into them this winter, but that left me in a predicament for the fall. She needed a few more pair of bottoms and they’d have to be stretchy. I decided to check out CookiesKids.com and quickly spotted Hello Kitty. That was all I needed to see- we can always use more Hello Kitty.
Using Alva Kids icon, I was able to enter Bella’s measurements and find the right size for her. All I had to do was enter her gender, height, and weight and Alva Kids suggested a size 18 months for the Hello Kitty pink sequined sweatsuit. I think the Alva Kids tool is very handy, especially when your child is in between sizes like Bella seems to be right now. She’ll be two in January, but size 2T is still a tad big for her and the size 18 months fit her great.
The Hello Kitty “Sequined Classic” 2-Piece Sweatsuit was only $19.99 and it’s even cuter in person. The zipper pull features Hello Kitty, there is a sequined Hello Kitty on the top, and another Hello Kitty on the pants. This will definitely be one of our go-to outfits this fall. I love that we can pair it with a short sleeve shirt for warmer days and then when it’s colder, she can wear a long sleeve tee underneath and pull up the hood for extra protection against the cold and wind.
I was given a $30 credit to CookiesKids.com so even after the Hello Kitty sequined sweatsuit, I still had $10 to spend. Bryson needed a pair of nicer khaki pants so I hopped over to the boys selection. I was surprised to find a nice variety of bottoms for around $10 and found the perfect pair of khaki LR Scoop Twill Cargo Pants for only $9.99! They are also available in navy, black, and gray and I highly recommend them for the price. I added those to my cart and quickly completed my check out. The process was easy, no hoops to jump through, and shipping was only $5. You can see my full shopping trip in my Fall Shopping with CookiesKids.com Google + album.
My order arrived in less than a week and just in time for a birthday we planned to attend. Both kids wore their new clothes from CookiesKids.com to the party. Unfortunately, my camera died as soon as I started snapping photos of the two of them. They were actually willing to let me take photos too, so that was a bummer. And, I didn’t have my camera for the party either! They had blast at the party though (and were honestly probably relieved that their photo-happy mommy didn’t have her camera around) and both looked so cute in their #CookiesKids clothing.
