Cold Weather Gear for Littles.

By: Jen Shoop

Snowy playtime and cold-weather getaways are almost here! I can’t believe we already had a two hour winter weather delay for school. I had purchased the children Gap duck boots but then realized they really aren’t proper snow boots (and wasn’t sure on quality) so instead found the cutest pairs from a Scandi brand called Kuling, all 40% off. They have some precious patterns (ahem!) but I bought solid colors, thinking that they’d be easier to match with coats we have (and possibly pass down from mini to micro). I bought micro these dusty green ones and mini these mid blue ones. The site charges $18 shipping to the US (gulp) but I justified because it is honestly difficult to find an attractive, well-made pair for under $50 a pop, and even with shipping, these are less. This might be the kind of thing that would be good to go in on a few girlfriends with. Buy like 10 pairs of boots and all split shipping. Anyhow, Kuling also has some really adorable snowsuits (cherries!!!) on sale, too. Check them out here.

  1. Hi! This is not related to the post, but the change in seasons has me thinking….

    I would love to hear if you have a system for organizing your children’s clothes. Putting away things too small, transferring hand me downs from one child to the next, storing seasonal items like mittens and hats (both while they’re out of season and while they’re in season and you need them accessible,) This is feeling like a full time job to me lately with two quickly growing little ones. Thank you!

    1. Hi! This was SO hard for me for many years. There’s still room for optimization, but here are a few things that have worked for me:

      In the middle of a season AND at the end of the season (so, like, mid-summer and end of summer), I dig through my children’s drawers/closets and remove anything that no longer fits or has been worn out / stained / etc. I then make four piles: one to keep to pass down (I’ve grown increasingly picky about this – I used to save almost anything in good condition, even no-name brands, but now I save for items I splurged on or items that have particularly intense emotional connection to), one to give away to family/friends (basically, anything that is a good brand or a nice dress outfit that I know will be appreciated — stuff from Little English, CPC Kids, Luli and Me, etc), one to donate (I give away allll the basics – like leggings, tees, sweaters, coats), and one to throw away (anything stained or tattered). For the stuff I keep: I move items I am going to pass down to my son into his closet in bins organized loosely by size for seasons ahead. For anything I’m “retiring” (e.g., will go to a grandchild or something), I place in zip-seal bags in our attic.

      Hope this helps!!
