I love shopping but buying clothes for myself can be a bit soul sucking frankly – after finding something cute for a good price, I still have to find one that fits – and pass the Husband Seal of Approval (he’s pickier than I am, getting easily put off by one too many frills or fancy details – he’s a simple guy, what can I say?). The clothes that end up making the cut can be far and few between. My daughter BB on the other hand is terrifically easy to shop for and being young and energetic (read: three) means that fit is simply never an issue. So then the issue is cute, quality and for a price I can live with.
Hanna Andersson is a kids’ clothing company that I truly covet. Every time their catalogs come in the mail, I pore over the new fashions, picturing my gorgeous daughter in their amazing outfits. I’ve gotten her a few of their dresses over the years, but I’ll be honest I tend to come up on the wrong side of the sticker shock so we don’t own a lot of their things as much as I admire their high quality, soft & durable products. I tend to get the majority of her clothing at Target, Walmart, H&M and Old Navy. A lot of times I’ll use the Hanna Andersson catalog as a jumping off point for style ideas and see what I can make happen in other stores – and what I’d rather splurge on at Hanna Andersson.
Wanna play a little game of Splurge vs. Steal? I’ve rounded up a few pieces from Hanna Andersson that I am truly coveting right now ; and some similar pieces at some of my go to stores for a stylish bargain. Which items would your splurge for and which would you go for the steal?
Not Old Enough For A Boyfriend Jeans at Hanna Andersson for $42 or Cuffed Skinny Jeans at Old Navy for $19.94?
Are you a bargain hunting mama or a quality first and foremost advocate? Which of these items would you splurge for the high end pick, which would you jump for the bargain? Any other clothing brands that you are obsessed with? I’d love to hear all about them in the comments section!
