OK OK I know I am being super organised since Joshua only broke up from school for the Summer on Friday, however last year I as not quite so on the ball as I should have been and after running round insanely trying to get everything we needed I have been starting to think about the essentials for Joshua going back to school.
We were really lucky recently to have been asked by M&Co to take a look at their School Wear Collection.
First on my list for back to school is the essentials, we needed to look at getting a school coat, pants and socks!
I have to admit I didn’t realise that M&Co did do a School Wear range online (sorry M&Co) but it’s always lovely to hear that a store does as I am not the best store shopper and so tend to do most of my shopping online.
What I also didn’t know was that M&Co’s School Wear Collection also includes the brand Trespass which I love!
So the question was what essentials were we looking for?
Firstly with my love already for the Trespass brand it was to organise a coat, with the absolutely diabolical weather red-hot one minute and cold and wet the next I am just hoping he won’t need it now till he goes back to School!
However we totally loved this Trespass Grayson Padded Jacket, it comes in this wonderful green and blue too. It has a reasonable price tag of £22 we all really liked it both on and off the hanger. If this coat is not what you’re looking for M&Co also do several others in their Back To School Collection.
Next on our list is the undergarment essentials, pants and socks.
This year he has driven me crazy on the sock front, he hates socks that have seams and god forbid if the toe seams are not straight! this 7 pack of socks from M&Co look like they may have saved my bacon for next year, they come in 3 different colours, blue, black and grey and are £7 for a 7 pair pack and they have lots more stretch than his did last year, the seams are minimal and soft and so far they have washed and dried well too.
Pants are last on the list of this first batch of school uniform gathering and I have to admit Joshua and I got rather excited by the Weekday pants!
I am not talking in euphemisms I mean pants with weekdays on them! … These are super cute and are really well made.
Overall we are thrilled with the items we have been sent out and I will certainly be looking at what other products are online at M&Co as they also cover things like school trousers, school shirts and polo tops and even jumpers at reasonable prices, although the rate he is growing I am going to have to hang fire just a few more weeks for those.
