My brother is having a last minute christening for his dd on sunday,my 2year old ds has nothing to wear i can't drive and live in the country so need mail order that can be trusted to deliver this week would like smart outfit no jeans or even jean style cords etc ds has dark brown shoes so should go with those please.
Thankyou for the links MrsBadger of course ds has some clothes,however all his clothes have been kindly past on by sil and as they are on the 3rd 2 year old boy to have them they are not good enough condition for a formal do! Twinsmommy dh looked on next last night but i wiil try myself!
Chimchar i'm not anti jeans it's just that i never buy ds anything so would like something a bit different,the clothes sil passes on are all jeans and joggers i do like the cords you liked to and you could be right about a jumper in church in november he might be cold in a shirt thankyou
smable - it might be worth checking with your brother to see what the church is like. He will, no doubt, be speaking with/have spoken with whoever is performing the ceremony and could enquire/might already know the usual temperature in there.
The church we were in last weekend was toasty-warm - I had dressed the boys in a plain t-shirt under their shirts, just in case it was a bit nippy - but they didn't need it. And this week is supposed to be lovely weather, so hope it will stay nice for the weekend for you!
I think if he rarely gets new stuff (dd is similar ) then what he does get should be worn as hard and long as possible...
a smart formal outfit will get worn maybe twice (ie this christening and Christmas) but a pair of good cord, or those lined trous from Jojo, with a decent jumper, will look good for the events and then go into everyday circulation for the rest of the winter.
MIL drives me nuts buying dd frilly satin dresses for Christmas when really something like this would be just as pretty and a lot more useful afterwards.
MrsBadger i do agree with you about reuse which is why i'm stopping myself ordering a suit from monsoon.I have looked through his clothes and found that we still have knitted tank top from last year as it's sleeveless and strechy he will get away with it for 1 day i have order the brown cords chimchar linked to at next and a stripy shirt that will match the new cords and some jeans sil passed on.thankyou all for your help!
