As the days get cooler it is essential to start having the kids dress the part but we don’t have to bankrupt ourselves to do it! A lot of times just adding the right accessories will keep them snugly and warm.
Here are our must haves for fall weather that add a little warmth without busting the budget!
There are those great Fall “in-between” days where the air is crisp in the morning and then by noon it is in the high 70’s. No need to make them grab that bulky coat when slipping a vest on them will look adorable and let you feel secure that the kids are warm enough. Plus there is the added benefit that they look like a little fashionista stepping off the pages of a magazine…there is just something about a vest!
Truth be told I have been looking forward to scarf weather, so I don’t need to remember where I left my mask! While I love a scarf and my oldest is now good with wearing one, for the little ones scarfs can be a little nerve wracking. This is because I always worry they will get snagged and ending up choking my little one or the scarf is a constant plaything that is so distracting it is better off on the floor of the car then around my kids neck! So, for age 5 and up I recommend going for the scarf, if you think they will keep it on, below 5 I suggest a gaiter instead. (a lot of people call these buffs but I was raised on gaiter so there you have it.) I recommend turtle fur. Their product is so soft and you can find it in a ton of different colors. Pro tip: get 2, kids tend to chew on things that are right in front of their mouths so if you are outside for an extended period you may want to swap on a new one to avoid rash. I do this with the kids masks too, my son has 3 in his backpack every day just in case.
These come in handy these days, not just for warmth but when running into a store as well. If the kids have to come with you, best to cover their hands. My little girl’s hands are always cold so I tend to keep an extra set in my purse just to have with us if I feel she is getting chilly.
I can not think of anything snugglier than a thick pair of socks. For my daughter I have a few pairs of tights and a few thick knee highs, that or both super cute, and super functional. They keep her legs warmer when I pull them up over her leggings and add an extra layer of protection when she is chasing her older brother around and inevitably takes a tumble…little sister problems!
There are some adorable sweaters out there for little ones and I guess my preppy side is coming out in this post with the Vest and the cable knit sweater recommendations but what can I say it works, and there are some really affordable brands to choose from.
Even though it is fall the sun has no lost its intensity. If you are getting the kids out to go on a walk or to a farm to go apple or pumpkin picking don’t forget eye protection!
This may just be me, (I have big ears that stick out) but my ears get cold on a windy fall day. My kids have my genes so they also have this affliction. I recommend ear bands. Hats can wait until winter but we can usually get a little extra time outside if I have these with me!
NUMBER 1 ACCESSORY of the Fall is the ….. MASK!!
