THE STYLE FILES




Dressing a boy is actually a lot more fun than you might think. There were a few months where I felt kind of stumped as to how I should dress Max. I loved the sweetness that came with all of the newborn and infant clothes, but I was eager to branch out and add a little personality to his outfits. I saw all of the items in the toddler section and they got me really excited about future outfit possibilities. Then I started to realize his new duds made him look like a little boy, which made me want to press rewind and dress him in footed onesies forever. Ha Ha! Since that really isn't an option, I've learned I have no choice but to embrace the growing tot and I'm having a blast adding new pieces to his wardrobe. Because I do most of my shopping online, I've had the best luck scouting pieces at stores like Zara, H&M, Nature BabyAmerican ApparelEverlane, BodenCrewcuts, and Gap. Overall, I'm really pleased with the quality of the clothing I've purchased from all of these stores. With brands like J.Crew, Boden, and Gap, I typically wait for a promotion or for specific items to go on sale at the end of the season. Some clothes, such as button-down shirts that Max has room to grow into, are worth the splurge for me. If he's in between sizes and I know he's too small to fit into the next size up, I'll purchase a few cheaper tops and bottoms from somewhere like H&M or Zara so he has some current options to wear that aren't ginormous. Old Navy and Target have oodles of adorable pieces as well, but it's always hard to tell what stuff looks like on their websites. I have better luck purchasing clothes from the stores whenever we make a trip into San Antonio. In addition to some of the bigger chain stores, I love smaller shops like Fawne Shoppe, Goatmilk NYC, Mabo Kids, Kid+Kind, Strawberry Moth, Childhoods Clothing, Private Party, Jean and June, etc. In anticipation of Spring in Swell Rio, I've added some of the following pieces to Max's wardrobe...
