|I don’t care if some would say this outfit is girly…my baby looks adorable!|
It took me a LONG time to figure out “my style” of clothing. Awkward middle school years of biker shorts and t-shirts led to a short phase of gothic style clothes, complete with big black combat boots in high school. (Uggg so embarrassing to admit!) Then in college it was sorority t-shirts and whatever I could find to hide my freshman 15, my sophomore 10, my junior 5…man I gained some weight in college! When I graduated, I bought some nice corporate-y work clothes. You know what I’m talking about – black pants, blouses, button-downs, khakis….snore…boring!
When I ended up working in my company’s creative department, I started to be a little bit more adventurous with what I wore. That’s when I finally figured out what I liked to wear. Mostly dresses with fun prints – feminine yet funky. I’d just throw on a cute dress, a cardigan, grab my Coach purse and I was off to work! And man, I had some CUTE clothes! (Gotta loose the rest of this baby weight so I can fit into these pretty things again…)
Dressing a boy is hard. The girl section of the kids clothes stores is always bigger – and the stuff is way cuter. Boy clothes are all graphic t-shirts, animals and sports. Which are cute, but can get old fast. We were blessed with so many hand-me-downs from girls at my church that I haven’t had much of a chance to buy a lot of clothes for Graham. And really, when I have gone shopping, I haven’t found many things that I just have to have in the boy section.
I think Gap Kids, The Children’s Place, Old Navy and Mini Boden have super cute baby boy clothes. And as much as I appreciate the hand-me-downs (it saved us a ton of money) I’m excited about Graham growing out of his clothes so I can buy him some stuff that I’ve picked out. I’d like Graham to wear a mix of preppy, hipster and baby boy blue clothes.
Button-downs, skinny jeans and madras prints – here we come! 🙂
