“Where did you get that outfit”?
No, no one is talking about my clothes…cuz let’s be honest, i’m a member of the maybe get dressed by 12 and potentially wear jeans on a fancy day club. But, the little tiny human, he is decked out. And I thoroughly enjoy finding new stores and designers that make my heart go pittery patter (within my, if I wouldn’t pay for it in my size, ain’t no way kid…aint no way, budget).
When I first found out I was having a boy, I was stoked. I knew all of the cute things I wanted him to wear and if they made him look like a tiny gentleman I had to have it. But, going out into the world of baby clothes and finding cute and a variety of baby boy clothes is HARD. Girls? Oh girls have multiple racks and stacks and aisles…but boys…you get this dark dungeony type corner over here by the employees restroom. WHY?!
I get asked a lot about where I buy Luke’s clothes…and to be honest..MOST of his wardrobe comes from the grammas…thank you grammas…you are lovely. My mother-n-law basically gets her own private screenings at Janie and Jack, my mom is always on Zulily finding the latest and the greatest and most unique item for him, and I’m often just looking through the racks at Nordstrom Rack for anything that will fit him that doesn’t look like he’s “trying too hard”…
I’m not a fan of too many graphic tees or using my kids onesie as a billboard to make funny boob and poop jokes. As annoying as buttons (and that ish is annoying when they get really squirmy) are, the quality stuff is made with buttons…therefore fine motor skills are necessary. Curse you gap and your adorable knitted jumpsuits with 20 tiny buttons…curse you….
All this to say, we get our outfits from EVERYWHERE including consignment sales. I decided to start documenting where I get his clothes (on the days his clothes aren’t stained onesies and too small sweatpants which are basically baby cropped pants) and how I put them together. I’m no style guru, but I am a frustrated mom shopper looking to put my kid in stuff a lil classier than Carters and Garanimals…no offense…but how many items of clothing with animals on the butt can one child have?!
So, stay tuned each week as I toss in some of Luke’s finest dudes of the week and if you come across any new designers, please share!

OMG! I love that you are doing this. I was 120% certain I was having a girl. When the Dr said ‘it’s a BOY’ I seriously cried to the husband, ‘what’s he going to wear now… a sack’. In the last few months I have noticed that there is nothing cute for little boys, yet there are racks and racks of girl clothes. Gah! I totally wish we were closer or I would totally buy some of Luke’s hand me downs, and gladly take them off your hands. Gah! He. Is. Adorable. Anyway, keep these posts coming, so now I know where to shop!
Ha you are totally my inspiration! I owe it to you for the idea! Honestly, baby gap is my weakness, it is always my favorite, thats where I went immediately after finding out it was a boy!
