Shopping… for little boys clothes

I’m the mom of three girls and have always had such an easy time finding cute things for them to wear no matter what season it was. Now I have a two year old little boy and finding anything cute and unique for him is a challenge! Seriously… I spent a week looking for something for him to wear to a wedding and all I wanted was a nice pair of dress pants and a cute shirt. Oh.. and shoes… geesh… all I could find was chunky looking old man velcro shoes! Not at all what I wanted. Now his sister was super simple. We walked into the store looked around for a couple minutes and found so many choices that we both liked. Easy peasy!

Eventually I did find something for him to wear and he looked pretty damn cute too. Just look at him in that suit! He’ll be wearing that for all family gatherings this year.

So where do you find stuff for your little boys? Me? Well I started searching the web and stumbled upon children’s clothing from Polarn O. Pyret . Like this reversible button up shirt for instance. I really like button up shirts and grab them when ever I can find them but a reversible one… now that is smart!

Which is perfect paired up with jeans or these… I love chinos for toddlers! Or corduroys… they’re simply adorable.

For the most part he ends up in jeans and a shirt… but not character shirts if I can help it! I’d also like clothes that repel the dirt because he always seems to come home from daycare covered in it or paint.

Oh… and if you know of a place I can find bow ties for little kids please let me know! I’m pretty sure that suit he’s wearing would be so much more fun with a little bow tie.

So aside from the regular places (Target, Children’s Place, etc) where are the best places for little boy clothes and shoes?

    Ugh. I can see where shopping for boys is SO hard. I love mom to mom sales for girls stuff – I can always find super cute stuff that is hardly worn. You really have to dig through the boys stuff though – it’s usually so beat-up!

    For my nephews, I usually shop at the Gap outlet, Children’s Place, Old Navy and Carters. I’ll be on the hunt for a bowtie for you because that would be so adorable!

      I hit up a lot of resale shops and can usually find some cute things but dress clothes are hard to find! And you’re right… you do have to dig! I just think that boys are really rough on their clothes!

    I used to always find my son’s stuff at JCPenney. That was the only store I ever found anything!

      We have a smaller JCP in town where I live but their selection isn’t all that great. I have to go to the mall over in Flint or Lansing to get the good stuff!
