KID CLOTHES FAVES.
So, I love to dress my kids each morning. I think about their outfits, and it’s a really fun part of my day. It’s just my thing 💁🏻♀️
When I had Grey, I was bummed at the selection of clothes for kids - too many bright colors, animals, and trucks on them. It’s just not my style! I love neutrals and dressing my kids like mini adults. 🤷🏻♀️ I started searching and found a whole new world of kids clothes I LOVED.
Here is a list of some of my favorite shops for the kids, and what I buy there. First thing though - here is a few things you’ll notice
Price - yeah, most of it isn’t cheap. But here’s the thing I’ve found. I can spend $5 on a shirt Old Navy and it’s destroyed after a few wears/washes. I can spend $25 at one of these shops and it’ll last for years and look good the whole time. Don’t get me wrong - I still buy stuff I like if I find it cheaper. But I have seen a huge difference in the quality and how long it lasts and how well it stays looking newish.
Which brings me to the second thing - I buy everything one size bigger so it lasts an extra season. The key to this is if the shirt is too big - the pants MUST fit. And vice versa. That keeps it looking intentional and cool, and not like your kids are wearing potato sacks.
Grey can wear clothes for EVER. It’s just the way he’s built. When a shirt started to get tight on his baby belly, he’d grow a few inches and suddenly it fit again. Same with pants. The kid has clothes he’s worn for 2+ years and counting.
Mila wasn’t the same as a baby. I blew through her clothes SO fast. She just grew differently and she didn’t wear half her stuff. Luckily pumpkin did;) But now - it’s evened out. She is 17 months old and tall. I buy her everything in 3T for the most part and it fits perfectly with room to grow as she loses her baby belly and lengthens out even more.
And lastly on that topic - I don’t have to justify what I spend on my kids clothes to anyone. We all have our “thing.” 😜
Neutral colors. Yeah, it’s all neutral. So it is always in style and will pretty much all go together. Call me a mean mom, but my kids wear what I buy them. They don’t get to pick. But, Grey now sometimes likes to dress himself - fine. It’s all neutral so it always looks pretty good whatever he chooses. And I’m happy too:)
Because it’s pretty neutral they share a lot of clothes. Mila wears grey’s stuff and I add a girly bow or headband. I add tights with a Biggie or skull onesie.
