Fashion Friday!

Outfit of the day: Out on the town casually christmas 🎄 shopping.  I like to look fashionable while running my errands. You might as well look your best.  You’ll last longer in those long lines in the mall.

Dress from Ross, boots from Zara

Baby Boy’s-Got-Swag!

I’ve heard mothers say these words over and over again, “It is hard to find nice trendy clothing for baby boys”. I have all girls, so I never really had to search the stores for boys clothing, unless I was attending a baby shower for a little boy.  Now that I have a grandson, I do understand their concern.  Most of the stores stock jeans and t-shirts for boys and they don’t get any more creative than that, but after searching and searching, I’ve found that more and more stores are stepping up their game and stocking more trendy items for boys. H&M, J Crew, Old Navy, JC Penney, Gap Kids, TargetZara  and Walmart are just a few stores who have great items at good prices.

Even as a baby, we would search for items that were different to dress him in.

We have always enjoyed dressing Mazin in fun trendy clothing and he loves the camera so we decided to shop his pictures around to a few modeling agencies to see if he would be a good fit for the baby modeling world. Low and behold, he was accepted by the “Clutts” agency in Dallas and has been featured in many clothing ads. He turns into a little professional when he’s on his photo shoots.

Although we do love to dress him in fun trendy clothing and shoes, he is not “dressed up” every day. He attends daycare daily so dressing comfortable is the name of the game during the week.

He does have to be “clean” when it comes to his church attire so that he can keep up with his “GP” who likes to wear bow ties and fedoras.

We do have fun trying new types of outfits on him, but we are aware that boys tend to get dirty easier than girls, because they like to play in the dirt and like to display their food on their clothing or on their head.  For this reason, we don’t always buy new clothing items and if we do, we try to save those for times when he won’t get as messy.

We’ve learned that Mazin is a shoe guy.  He likes to wear his GP’s shoes and rearrange them in the closet.  He also likes to store his shoes in GP’s closet, so his mom has to check GP’s closet when his shoes are missing.

He not only likes to wear his tennis shoes, but he also likes sandals during the warm months. He can even tolerate the thong sandals with no problem.

Boy’s shoes have evolved a lot over the years.  Tennis shoes are not the only shoes for boys.  There are bucks, sandals, loafers, and boots.  Mazin likes his cowboy boots that he got for his birthday.  He likes them so much that he puts them on with his pj’s after his bath at night.  He does have several pair of slippers, but there is something about those cowboy boots after a bath…..LOL

With consignment shops becoming a popular thing now-a-days, it makes it easier to find name brand items for less. One of the consignment shops we frequent in our neighborhood is “kid to kid”.  They carry a large selection of name brand clothing and shoes for kids. Other great online resources are Etsy, Swap.com, Little Sprouts, and ThreadUP .

Your little one can also have “Swag” if you shop at the right places.  Whether you’re on a budget or have lots of extra to spend.  The sky is the limit, when it comes to shopping for little boys.
