There are few things as beautiful, to me, as the first snow. It’s almost magical to watch as the flakes dance their way to rest on the fence post outside my window. Kids faces pressed against the window with anticipation of making snow angels. And then we actually get outside. Those sweet little looks of anticipation quickly turn to icy glares as they discover the snow is COLD. Try as I may, I failed miserably at keeping their gloves tucked in their coat. Have your kids ever gone Dr. Jekyll on you? Let me introduce you to one of the most ingenious coats I have ever seen from Liam & Isla!
I have a picture of my daughter from when she was around two years old. I had spent at least half an hour getting her all bundled up. Put on gloves, covered gloves with a plastic bag, taped around said plastic bag, layers of clothing… you know the drill. We may have been out there five minutes and she was D.O.N.E. I will forever treasure the look of utter disgust on her cute little face over the cold snow seaping through the tape.
The good news – we don’t have to go through that half an hour of transforming our children into the Michelin Man anymore. Liam & Isla has created a coat that every parent is going to want when the white stuff begins to fall.
“The mittens are made with a heavyweight fleece shell and lined with a lightweight fleece, a waterproof liner, and thinsulate. These mittens were designed to stay on my little ones’ hands while keeping them warm and dry.
The idea is simple: the top and bottom of the mittens snap to the sleeve of the fleece jacket. The mittens will not fall off, ensuring your kids can now spend more time having fun and playing outside.”
These coats are made of ultra soft fabric and buttoning the gloves on ~ super simple. This concept will truly revolutionize the way you look at playing in the snow with young children.
An added bonus: no more searching for the ever elusive glove! I don’t know about your house but our gloves love to play hide and seek with the socks. Snap those gloves on the coat, hang it up, and no more searching (at least for the gloves, the socks – well…may they rest in peace).
We tried out the Glacial Hoodie and the Solstice Peplum. I honestly couldn’t choose a favorite. They are both absolutely darling. I love the sweet sophistication these coats have! They do tend to run a tad small, so if you’re teetering between sizes – I’d go up a size.
Liam & Isla offers a variety of sizes for the special little lady or gentleman in your life. Head over here and get your order in before those flurries start!
