Update your child’s special occasion wardobe – just in time for Easter

As much as I love discovering new clothing brands for my kids, there are a trusted few where I know I will always find the best quality at the best prices. This holds especially true when shopping for special occasion wear for my boys. These brands have become my go-to when I need to dress them up, so let’s look at where to update your child’s special occasion wardobe just in time for Easter.

During the holiday season, it seems like I never have enough of a variety of clothing for my boys to wear to all our traditional gatherings, from birthdays to birth celebrations to religious days like Easter (due to kids growing at an alarming rate) . Over the next month we have tons of family events coming up, we have big birthdays, Easter and even a family photoshoot. While it is all very exciting, it can be challenging trying to plan different outfits for the boys to wear to each new event (who am I kidding, I love this stuff).

As much as I love me some retail therapy, it’s always good to first and foremost sort through your kids wardrobe regularly. Focus on what items can be reused, what can be donated and what can be packed away for siblings or cousins (yes, we do hand me downs and it works). Once you’ve established what you have and therefore what you need, it’s time to go shopping.

This month I thought I’d highlight just a few key items to update your child’s special occasion wardobe, just in time for Easter; but relevant even if you don’t celebrate Easter!

Lately H&M is becoming one of my favourite stores. I find their kids clothing reasonably priced and the variety (especially in boys clothing) is great. But then there are also items from my all time top kids clothing brands.
