When I go to pick up the LO at school, I often have a little note telling me what she needs - like more diapers, extra clothes, etc. The other day I got a note that she needed a thicker sweatshirt or a jacket. The problem is, I don't actually have one of these things for her. Usually Lola buys all her clothes but I won't be seeing Lola for another week or so and I thought I could just get a jacket for her at Old Navy. Well, the problem is that the stores have all their spring stuff out right now and it's impossible to find a warm jacket.
I did find this one at ON in the boys section (I guess because boys need jackets but not girls)
It's lined so it's a bit warmer than a thin sweatshirt (all she has right now). I bought it but I'm a little peeved it was $24 in the store and it's $15 online. Also there are some jackets online at eBay but I feel like once I win the auction and get it shipped, I could have easily found something else or had Lola find something. I am trying to get something quickly here folks.
I can't believe how hard it is to just find the LO something warm. I called the Gap and asked what they have available and it was the same answer - all spring stuff. I guess I shouldn't be surprised because the Gap and ON are the same but still. There is a really expensive children's store here (This Little Piggy Wears Cotton) but I think I just might be angry if I go in there and they have a jacket for some ridiculous price like $60.
I guess I could check thrift shops but I don't have a lot of time to weed through stuff. Ugh! Too bad I didn't receive a note that says she needs a bathing suit, flip flops and a cute little dress for school because that would have been EASY to find.
If any friends reading this has a warm 6-12 month something I can borrow (boy or girl) let me know.
Enjoy the weekend!
