I normally don't even consider jacket purchases for my daughter until cool weather has began to set in but this year when doing my normal school shopping I ran across this adorable little jacket in Gap Kids that I just couldn't pass up.
The fleece lined rain slicker is from last years clothing line, but at $35.50 there was no way I could walk off without grabbing one. We have always had great luck with Gap brand clothing and it is my daughters absolute favorite store to shop in so I cosider it a must have purchase I won't have to make in a few more months. I'm ahead of the game this year! YAY for me!
The jaket is navy blue and water repellant with bright pink fleece lining making it perfect even for winter when mittens and a hat are added to the mix. What's most important of course is the fact that my daughter actually loves it which says a lot because she is the pickiest child when it comes to outerwear for some reason.
Although the weather hasn't yet permitted heavy use of this jacket she has wore it already on a few colder nights and mornings we have had. Enough for me to already be able to tell it's great quality and highly durable. The material it is made of makes it easy to keep clean as well either by washing or wiping down.
I have a good feeling this will be the only jacket I will need to buy this year for cold weather outside of the issue of her growing out of it being a possibility. Let'e hope not!
