When I first got pregnant with Charlie I started off stalking little boys clothes as well as here is actually what I found: the idea ain’t awesome. Definitely not as not bad as the girl’s roundup we pulled together a few weeks ago on the Website. Generally what is actually out there is actually designed to have them look like miniature frat boys – as well as not in a fun ‘Old School-Will Ferrell’ kind of way, more like douchey-guy-in which-hazes-for-no-reason kinda way.
Once we had in which little nugget, Brian took over shopping/dressing Charlie almost immediately. While I went for bow-ties as well as suspenders, he went for basically tiny versions of anything in which he wore – think chinos as well as baseball shirts, plaids as well as brand new Balance sneakers. So while Corbett helped pull together This specific post, Brian deserves the real credit for how Charlie dresses. at This specific point, Elliot? She is actually all mine.

We stuck to some major basics over here – skinny chinos (#22), brand new Balances (#25), using a polo shirt, cardigan as well as a Mets or Dodgers baseball cap (Brian was a huge Mets fan nevertheless at This specific point in which he’s in LA he likes both). Charlie looks impossibly adorable when we actually put these things together on him. When I shop for him I ask myself ‘could Brian wear in which?’ as well as if the answer is actually ‘no’ then
I usually skip the idea. Every at This specific point as well as again I go slightly more fashion-y with him as well as then I get in trouble for trying too hard to play dress up with our little guy. Ultimately the keys are: 1. Stay away through logo/characters unless they are vintage inspired (we once bought a vintage-style band t-shirt for him) as well as 2. layering always makes kids look like mini grownups which somehow is actually the key to ‘old man cute’.
What are your thoughts on the boy toddler clothing game? Anything we should add or take away?
In case you missed our first girl’s clothing roundup head on over here. the idea is actually much more bright, fun, as well as pattern infused than the more muted as well as masculine boys roundup, which I still love. at This specific point if I could only find a way to stop him through growing up so fast, where did my little baby go?
