We are not sure about anyone else, but here at Be Belle Boutique we think the the summer holidays have been pretty long! Which means that as much as we love our kids, we are happily waving them back to school. The only trouble with the kids heading back to school is that we need to buy coats, shoes and boots, bags and of course the dreaded school uniform.
If it isn’t quite time for your kid to head to school, and you are wondering whether or not you have everything that you need, then maybe it is time to make sure that you have those essentials.
To help you on your way, we have put together the essential list that you can check out when the time comes to get back to school.
The thing is with the UK weather is that you are never quite sure what it is going to do. This means that it might be a good idea to invest in a good quality raincoat as well as a good quality winter coat. Having two coats may seem a little extravagant, but you will be glad to have more than one if they end up getting soaked or dirty during the school day.
Shoes and boots
Much like coats, when it comes to footwear it might be worthwhile investing in more than one pair. Your little one will need some formal school shoes and trainers for PE, but considering the weather here, it might be worthwhile finding some boots too. This means they have plenty of options and you won’t have to worry that they are going to end up with wet feet.
A strong bag
When they are older your kids are going to want trendy bags for school, and whilst they are little they are going to usually opt for the bright and colourful character themed bags. The thing, as a parent, that you need to remember is that it needs to be durable and strong. Whilst the Paw Patrol bag might be super cute, if it is going to fall apart after a month then you are going to be left feeling a little bit miffed off.
You won’t be able to escape without buying school uniform. The trouble with uniform is that you are not likely to know exactly where to get it from. You can opt for more expensive uniform that is likely to last longer, or if you are happy to replace every term or so, then you can buy from a cheaper shop. Some schools have a stipulation that they have to wear logoed items of clothing, but plenty don’t seem to have this ruling in place.
So, there you have it, the things to remember when it comes to buying school uniform for your little one, you can always head over to our shop and have a look at some adorable jackets here at Be Belle Boutique. Whilst it may seem stressful, getting them packed off to school, particularly if it is their first year, is one of the most exciting times, if not the time when you are most likely to cry!
