My very favourite outfit when I was about 9 was a terry toweling jumpsuit. Elise and Merryn and I had matching ones in pastel pink, yellow and blue. I recall they had white trim. They zipped up at the front. WE LOVED THEM!
I was in the middle of shellacking my coffee table on Thursday when I heard the doorbell. It was my lovely friend Aileen with a bag of hand-me-downs for my kids. Aileen also has a penchant for terry toweling. So I am always thrilled when she generously thinks of us!
And I should have known it was coming – Kyle took the kids to his family holiday house for the long weekend, and Aileen always takes such opportunities to do a sneaky cull. In the last few years my family has been the beneficiary. Jemima’s most favourite outfit for the last 2 summers has been the matching lolly pink Bonds terry toweling set comprising singlet top and shorts from Aileen.
So, I think I might have to give up shopping … at least for a while. Or at least for the kids …
This time Scarlett’s winter wardrobe gets a sparkly lift with a gorgeous matching jumper, hat and gloves, 2 pairs of jeans (with one being Target jeggings which are about the only ‘jeans’ the kids don’t complain about) some great basic long sleeved t-shirts and a super fold up rain coat.
And for summer, 2 jumpsuits (I love these on kids and they are super handy on holidays) – the pink one in terry toweling – and some t-shirts, 2 great skirts, a stripy blue and white dress …. and a terry toweling stripy hoodie – yeah!
And, some saltwater sandals …
And there’s more, but I don’t want to go on too much … Thanks heaps Aileen!
Not just terry towelling jumpsuits, but PASTEL terry towelling jumpsuits! Can we see a photo of the matching three girls? Great hand-me-down stash too!
I am sure there is a photo somewhere … I’ll see if Mum can did one up …
