Dexter is heading back to school with Debenhams uniform range.
So… Dexter has completed the reception year at school and one thing I have learnt is how much kids grow and get mucky! We’ve no chance of using any of his school
Selecting our back to school essentials.
As mentioned above… Dexter lost his jacket on a trip to the zoo. It was getting ever so slightly too small so would have needed replacing anyway but I was still a bit annoyed. So, the first thing I looked at was a new jacket for him. He has a thick winter coat so I wanted something lightweight and waterproof for these summer rain days that we’ve been having recently.
I was impressed to find this Regatta waterproof, breathable navy jacket that was £20, knocked down from £50. It’s exactly what I was looking for and fits him really well.
Dexter has the choice of either white or green shirts for his school uniform and after seeing the state his white ones came home in last year, I’ve opted to go for green this year. Debenhams don’t have green (they do have white, blue and red) so I’ve decided to get those and his jumpers from somewhere else.
I selected 6 pairs of trousers which were in packs of 2 for £8.80. That way we have one for every day of the week and a spare pair for when I’m behind on the laundry (That’ll be all the time then..!)
Best foot forward
School shoes are something he will spend a lot of his time in. 6 hours a day, 5 days a week – so I decided against ordering shoes online. Not specifically from Debenhams, but online in general. I would rather him try them on, walk around in them and try a few different pairs to make sure they fit him properly and are comfortable, so we will be buying those closer to the start of the new term. I did manage to order him some plimsoles as we struggled to find any last year. These are pretty standard in design wherever you look so I was happy to order these. Debenhams have a unisex pair of black plimsoles for just £6.40. Perfect!
Back to school Underwear
The final part of our selection came from the back to school underwear. For Dexter, we chose 2 packs of boxers. These are grey, navy and white and cost £4.40. We also ordered a pack of 5 pairs of grey socks for Dexter, along with some vests and tights for Paisley.
Back to cool?
We were given the opportunity to choose what we would like in the Debenhams back to school range. Dexter is now sorted for underwear, trousers, plimsoles and a jacket and we had a bit spare to get Paisley some underwear too. Debenhams have a decent range of school uniform available and I found it easy to navigate their site and place my order. The order arrived quickly via Hermes and I was kept informed of the journey process via email and text.
So far I’m happy with the selection we chose and I’m looking forward to seeing how they fair over the school year. Whilst this
