Like a lot of kids, our seven year old son loves hanging out in tracksuit bottoms and football tops, and getting him to wear something a bit smarter can be a challenge sometimes. So when I went holiday clothes shopping with Primark at The Fort Shopping Centre in Birmingham, I set myself a challenge to find something comfortable but slightly smarter for him.
Primark opened at The Fort in March and is a tidy, spacious shop with two floors and everything you could imagine. It's perfect for kitting the whole family out with brilliant fashion at great value prices.
There was lots of choice of older kids clothes, and as our son wears age 9-10 clothes these days, I always look for nice clothes without some of the more grown up slogans and brand names for him. Primark didn't let me down, and I chose this fab outfit for him:
Brushed denim drawstring jeans £8
High top navy canvas baseball boots £8
Striped polo T shirt £4.50
The jeans are a lovely brushed denim, really soft and comfortable fitting. Our son won't normally wear jeans, but with the drawstring adjustable waistband and loose fit, these were a great fit that he doesn't mind wearing all day. The T shirt is fab, and again a really soft cotton. I love the stripes and blue colour which look great on him.
And finally, the canvas baseball boots are just great, and a complete bargain for £8. They're really well made, comfortable and set this outfit off perfectly. £20.50 is such great value, with everything good quality and comfortable, he will get lots of wear out of it.
With loads of free parking, and great facilities for families including car buggies for hire, and child safe wristbands, we're regular shoppers at The Fort Shopping Park, and I love that you can browse and get everything you need in one location. We always love to go to Frankie and Bennys or Nandos when we're there too.
I'll definitely go back to the rather fab Primark at The Fort again. It's a great store, brilliant value and has everything to stock the whole family wardrobe up for the summer, Perfect!
