Tis the season to be stylish! I love this time of year, and love how fun it can be to dress our little loves to the nines for the holiday season. Unfortunately, there are hardly any children's clothing boutiques where I live, and I have to travel 30+ miles to find one. Doing a ton of traveling out of town for shopping this time of year really adds up as far as filling the gas tank goes. When I can, I like to do a lot of my shopping online. It often times saves time, money, and I love the convenience if not having to leave my house to do it!
I was lucky to connect with Sophias Style, an online children's clothing boutique. SophiasStyle.com was founded in 2006 by owners Jake and Belinda North after their first daughter, Sophia, was born. Belinda was inspired by her little girls’ sense of style, and quickly discovered that there just weren’t any online stores that could provide the perfect, boutique style clothing she and Sophia loved. Thus, the Norths decided to start their own online children’s clothing boutique!
We were offered a $50.00 credit to shop with at Sophias Style. I was excited to see that there were a lot of options for boys. This time of year, B needs new pants like, every other week! What is it with boys and pants? They wear through them incredibly quickly. I selected two pairs of pants for B, and had a little bit of credit left, and selected an outfit from the clearence section that Bwould be able to wear in the spring.
B couldn't wait to see what he received from Sophias Style Boutique!
We received the Boy's Basic Flat Front Double Knees Uniform Pants...
...and a Dirt Magnet T-Shirt and Shorts set.
We had a little bit of a mix-up with our order. I ordered a black and grey pair of the boys uniform pants, for $14.99, each, as well as the clearence shorts set. I had a goal to get the most bang for my buck with the entire $50.00 credit, including shipping costs. After I placed my order for the three items, I was notified that one of the pairs of pants that I ordered for B was out of stock. I was semi-disappointed, because he really needed the black pants, and they wound up being out of stock, The grey pants and shorts set shipped, regardless, and my account was credited the $15.00 for the black pants. Had I known the black pants were out of stock beforehand, I probably would have changed my entire order, and chosen something different. I was semi irked that I would have to pay for shipping twice, if I wanted to use the rest of my credit.
Mix-up aside, the items that we did receive were shipped quickly, and I received shipping updates via e-mail, as well as order confirmations, etc. I was also notified almost immediately about the out of stock item.
Sophias Style offers a handy size chart which is helpful when ordering online!
When we finally had a chance to try out the grey pants, I noticed that they fit, but they were a snug fit, and B probably wouldn't be able to wear them for very long. I ordered a size 5 for B, and evidently should have ordered two sizes up for a more comfortable fit. I did go by the measurements on the size chart on the Sophias Style website before I ordered the pants, and they were still snug on B. I always have a hard time ordering pants online, for this reason. In the future I will know to order two sizes up, and go with the Kids size large for him, instead of medium.
The Grey pants are very well made, and look great! They are durable, and if they weren't so snug in the waist and things on B, I know they'd be very comfortable for him to wear to school. They're also nice enough to wear for holiday photo shoots, wear to holiday gatherings, to church, etc. For $14.99, they're an incredible value.
These boys pants are a must have for any school uniform wardrobe by Classroom Uniforms. Charcoal Gray flat-front pant with double knee. Waist has center-back elastic and hook-and-eye closure. Soil-release treated poly/cotton twill holds color and releases stains with little or no ironing.
We love the Dirt Magnet Shirt and Shorts set. I was thinking ahead to next spring and summer, so I ordered the size 6 in that set. I made the right choice, for sure. It looks like even though it would be loose on B now, it'll be a great fit for him, once the warmer weather rolls around.
