Wardrobe Confession…It’s Time to Freshen Up! – Me, Myself and Kids

Wardrobe Confession…It’s Time to Freshen Up!

Fashion Kids Reviews & Giveaways Things We Love Tried & Tested Win This

It’s that time again. It is the end of August and its time to take inventory of my kids wardrobe. Every summer it seems as though my oldest goes through his biggest growth spurts making the majority of his clothing too small, or too short.
Now this is great news for my youngest who gets all of his amazing hand me downs. And for the big guy, he basically gets to choose a whole new set of clothing to freshen up his wardrobe (lucky guy!!)

When I go shopping with the kids, I want it to be easy. I mean, it’s hard enough getting my boys to go anywhere with me, let alone ask them to try on a bunch of clothing.

But Joe Fresh makes it easy. They carry such simple, stylish and affordable clothes that makes it easy for us moms and dads to shop for them. Not to mention Joe Fresh is basically 90% of my own wardrobe, so going there (or shopping on joefresh.com/ca) is a no brainer!

You can find all you need for back to school in no time. They have a huge selection for boys and girls, and even more in store than on line. Shoes, hats, jackets, tops, pants…you name it, it’s there. The colours this year are fabulous too!

Now my boys are pretty simple when it comes to what they wear. It’s unlikely that you will find them in jeans or pants unless we are going out or, it’s picture day! They call them the “fancy clothes”.

They love being comfortable and I don’t blame them. Sitting at school for 7 hours a day, you want comfort. So for the most part they live in sweatpants, tees/long sleeve tees, and sweatshirts. The selection for back to school this season blew me away.

Z couldn’t believe how soft and comfortable everything was. He didn’t want to take anything off!

Kid Boys Long Sleeve Hoodie $24 / Kid Boys French Terry Pant $19

He literally refused to take off that sweatshirt! And the sweatpants we both loved so much, we got them in two different colours. Because obviously...

Next up, some cool active gear and of course, more sweatpants…

Kid Boys Long Sleeve Raglan Tee $12 / Kid Boys Side Stripe Track Pant $16
Kid Boys Fleece Jogger $19











Those fleece camo joggers are so soft!!!

Of course we needed a couple of long sleeves, so in addition to hoodies, he went with the “epic” choice. He say’s the word enough, so its only logical 😉

Kid Boys Graphic Pullover $19 / Kid Boys Zip Jogger $19

I really could have stayed in the store for hours. Not to mention buy everything in the boys section! So many great styles to choose from…its kinda hard to choose what NOT to get! But for now, our wardrobe inventory checklist is complete! And I believe we have succeeded in freshening up his wardrobe!

So now, it’s your turn! Get your kids prepared for the classroom and freshen up your wardrobe with some fresh favorites like these:


From left to right:

Kid Girls Frayed Hem Jean $24 / Kid Girls Long Sleeve Tunic $16 / Kid Girls Star Print Twin Gore Sneaker $24 / Kid Girls Open Cardi $24 / Kid Boy Jacket $35 / Kid Boys Twin Gore Slip On Sneakers $22 / Kid Girls Stripe Skater Dress $19 / Kid Girls Print Puffer Jacket $35

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
