every parent does it. we use events like christmas or birthdays to give our kids stuff they “need” along with stuff they want. it's fine right?! i thought it would be fun to do this post with nordstrom to show you guys some of my favorite kids' cold weather shoes and coats right now because i know i'll be sneaking in some of these practical gifts for anabelle this christmas!
i really like to shop for our coats and shoes at nordstrom because to me they're investment pieces. i want them to last, and not just for 1 kid but especially now that i know we're having 2 girls in a row, i want them to last for both girls! i'm pretty sold on the fact that anabelle tromped all over creation last winter in her baby uggs and they're still in amazing condition, not to mention they kept her little toesies warm through an entire utah winter. no small feat. and the coats i've invested in over the years from nordstrom i know i can count on season after season. so why not do the same for my kiddos, right? let's get started! all images below are clickable:
hunter boots: we love these SO MUCH! keeps little feet so warm and dry, and totally gender neutral in most colors. we have really loved our hunter kid's first boots for anabelle's toddler feet. on sale in these two bright colors!
sorel joan of arctic boot: so cute for boys or girls and SO warm!
ugg classic short water resistant leather boot: if you're going for gender neutral to last through a few kiddos this is a great choice! i'm obsessed with baby uggs (so perfect for tiny feet in cold weather) and these CAMO baby uggs? i could die.
ugg bailey bow boot: the ugg obsession continues. they're just so great for keeping kiddos warm. ani has these bailey bow uggs in mint and they're on sale right now! and can we talk about the gold walker ugg baby boots? baby sister might need these next winter!
widgeon black and white coat: we tried on so many coats and this one was too cute for me to say no to! see anabelle trying it on below:
kamik snowbug 3 waterproof boots: these babies have gotten 24 5-star ratings and are loved by parents for keeping little boys' feet warm and dry for hours of snow play!
patagonia torrentshell waterproof insulated jacket: waterproof + insulated + patagonia = win!
sorel snow commander boot in violet/coral: a combined 33 5-star reviews and 100% recommended by reviewers! so reliable and perfect for cold weather play. in black/neon too.
north face gotham pink jacket: a little too warm for our southern ca winter but it would be perfect in utah. so cute in person! (see below). available in more sizes in gender neutral black.
moondoggy reversible black/neon down jacket: an amazingly warm jacket if you live somewhere really cold! listed under boys but totally could be gender neutral.
hopefully that helps you guys with some ideas and recommendations for cold weather investment pieces to sneak under the tree this year!
