Hey guys! I’m no fashion blogger… ALTHOUGH, I’d truly LOVE to be! I can’t take outfit pics for posts for diddly-squat, which you are about to quickly discover! ANY-WHOO, today I will be sharing some pics of NK and LW’s style with you all, as I’m linking up with Chelsea of Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles for her first-ever Trendy Littles.
Confession #1: Yes, I dress NK in my mother and I’s baby clothing (mostly the little vintage dress numbers).
Confession #2: I also dress NK in not only my baby clothing, but also her Daddy’s baby clothing (such as the above pictured overalls).
Confession #3: I validated the purchase of the adorable Hello Apparel top because they were discounted on P.S. I Adore You’s site (if you haven’t checked this site out, I’d highly recommend that you do) AND their proceeds from the sales went to Cure Search for childhood cancer research at the time of purchase!
Confession #4: Those sneakers NK’s wearing in this pic… Yeah, supposedly they are BOYS’ sneakers! I found them on the clearance shelves at Burlington Coat Factory and Hubby and I mutually agreed that since they were pure white, they were gender-neutral enough for a little gal!
Confession #5: I never (EVER) pay full-price for ANY of their clothing. I will thrift, coupon, and bargain-hunt… perusing clearance racks until I find what I like or am interested in. For example, the sweater cardigan in the above pic? Totally purchased from the clearance rack at Kohl’s with an additional 30% off coupon (so, like $2 for the piece). The sneakers? Same sneakers that were discussed above… the BOY’S sneakers that we purchased off the clearance shelves at Burlington Coat Factory. I also love supporting handmade clothing shops that sell things like screen printed tees and leggings made with organic fabric… BUT I usually wait until their goods go on special through sites like P.S. I Adore You (see link above) and Brickyard Buffalo!
Confession #6: I am REALLY PICKY about LW’s outfits. I don’t want him looking too preppy, but I don’t want him to look too punk either. I NEVER used to be this picky about what he wore… until I had a little, baby girl! Then I realized how much more limited of a selection there is when it comes to boys’ clothing… something I never took notice to until I was shopping for BOTH genders. Now, I am much more particular about what he wears. He isn’t a preppy littleman… he is a rough and tough little dude. At the same time, I don’t want him to come across as some little punk. So I am slowly becoming more comfortable shopping for him and feeling out new things that seem to best fit his personality.
Either way, I love getting to dress these two little bamboozles of mine each morning… despite all the little tike fashion faux pas I may make!
