Luxury clothes are usually my domain, much as I love my children, I have never seen the point in spending a lot of money on their clothes. My experience has always been that it doesn't matter how much I've spent, they get wrecked anyway. Having said that, I was pretty happy to receive these lovely thermals from Polarn O. Pyret the other day.
Polarn O. Pyret is an online clothes store for children, here's a bit about them....
"From humble beginnings in Stockholm in 1976 with striped jersey and a desire to make better clothes for children, we are now a company with over 110 stores across Sweden and Europe. As it turns out, Swedish children and parents are not the only ones who appreciate our quality, design and function. We are now looking forward to entering new markets. And taking our ambition to make the best children’s clothes in the world with us."
|In the thermal gear!|
Now even though this is clearly marketed as outerwear (I can imagine it being worn under a ski suit for example) I am not the outdoor type. In fact I have never been to a real ski slope, partly because I think they will be full of insufferable snobs, partly because I know I will be terrible at it and embarrass myself and partly because I don't like being cold. Anyway, back to the thermals, as my son wakes up cold so frequently in the night (yes we've tried a sleeping bag but he always escapes) I thought some good old thermal wear might be just the ticket. The colours are lovely (might be worth not washing them with whites though!) and bright. But the best thing is, it is a genuinely WARM outfit (as you might expect). I was a bit surprised, as the material does feel a bit thin, but when it came to it, he was snug as a bug in a rug.
