The start of fall is always hard on my wallet. New school clothes, lunch boxes, backpacks, school fees, and then of course planning for the holidays. But on top of all that, is shopping for kids cold weather gear. Somehow kids grow 3 feet between seasons, and the previous years coat? Ha. It’s not going to fit. Never mind that there is no way that a sibling’s coat from last year will work either.
This year, all of my kids are going to school, so to save some money, I’m thinking of buying kids cold weather gear for Sierra Trading Post. I shop their occasionally for me, so why not when I’m outfitting the kids for winter recess and weekends on the mountain!

Choosing my Kids Cold Weather Gear at Sierra Trading Post
For Sebby I like this Boulder Gear Coupe Ski Jacket in Avocado. Not only does Sebby look great in green, but this boys’ jacket is great for the playground and easily layered with a warm sweater if we go play in the snow. Which means he needs snow pants. These Boulder Gear Bolt Cargo Ski Pants fit the bill. They’re insulated too, so he’ll stay cozy. Add a pair of insulated waterproof boots and he’s ready.
Quincy’s easy. As long as it’s pink and cozy she’s happy. The girls’ jacket selection is awesome. So much pink to choose from. I won’t do ALL pink because we don’t need to overdo it, but a nice mix of patterns and solids and she ends up with a look that she loves and is affordable. I’m loving this Burton Hart Jacket and coordinating Elite Cargo Snowboard Pants. These Totes Snowflake Snow Boots are totally her style.
If any knows what an active almost 4 year old Edison is, they know he needs a snowsuit. Otherwise he’ll get snow in places that just don’t need snow. This Columbia Sportswear Buga Omni-Tech® Two-Piece Snow Suit is perfect. Not only will it keep him warm, but the OUTGROWN grow system means we’ll get at least one more season out of it. Add a pair of warm boots and he’ll be tearing down the sledding hill in no time.
