Pre-school prep has been rolling on over here. I posted the other day about my Ollie starting preschool in the fall and the tote bag that I made for him. And about a week ago I got the best package in the mail… his back to school clothes! Everything is a size 4 and I’m kind of freaking out that I have a child who now wears a size 4.
Tea Collection is my favorite place to buy clothes for my boys. The quality is so amazing and with two rough-and-tumble boys, I need clothes that are going to last. I buy my oldest a handful of Tea Collection t-shirts only once a year and he wears them all year long and then they get passed onto my younger son. Those 4-5 t-shirts still look brand new after a year of being worn week after week and they are his only day-to-day t-shirts. Stains come out easily, the fabric is incredibly soft, and I swear every time I pull them out of the dryer they look brand new still.
I also love how cool the designs are, and Ollie picks favorites pretty quickly. His favorite of his new shirts is one with a tools illustration because they are “daddy’s tools!”.
The Tea Collection pants/shorts are just as awesome as the shirts. They have these great knit pants with elastic waistbands that look like nice school pants (instead of sweat pants), and are perfect for my potty-trained child who still has problems with buttons and zippers. And lets face it, who doesn’t like to wear cozy pants?
And now on to the model! My ollie isn’t big on trying on clothes or posing. But he was so thrilled to try on his new shirt with “daddy’s tools on it” that he endured a whole photoshoot complete with hillarious posing.
I also picked up some Native shoes for him which I am also a big fan of. They will be great until boot weather (snow here!). They are easy for him to take off and put on, they wash well, and look brand new years later.
And how cute is this wildcat hoodie?? Ollie saw it on the Tea Collection website and immediately fell in love. It was a bit of a splurge but we are big on hoodies in this house, and I do love a great statement piece.
