Sorry for the blogger issues. If you do not see my sidebar to the right - it is on the very bottom of the page - TRYING to get it fixed!
Continuing our Back to School series, today I will talk boys!
Owen is my almost 6 year old son. Bless his heart - he is sandwiched in between two loud, dramatic young girls and just goes with the flow. Owen could care less what he is wearing as long as it:
a. Is not pink or purple
b. Is not itchy
c. Is not hot
Owen is by far the easiest to dress and shop for. I am going to be honest and tell you that I don't have to put much thought into his clothes and don't know that I have many great tips. His outfit most days is a pair of cargo shorts, a cool t-shirt and flip flops in the summer. He wears lots of jeans and athletic pants in the winter and Fall with tennis shoes. He is a no fuss, get me dressed fast and back to playing, kind of guy.
I do try to still match him to the girls, but I have to be creative. He does NOT want to match them too close. At the same time, he loves him a good seasonal shirt and will wear those.
I don't focus on his bottoms as much as they usually get trashed in a month or lost in Owen's world of no return. I buy him cargos from Target and Crazy 8. We will talk jeans and such in my Fall posts.
When I am shopping for him, I focus on shirts. I am always on the lookout for cool t-shirts.
Owen is just like his daddy and loves a good t-shirt. I know I can put him in one and he will be comfortable and not be pulling around on it or too hot. Also, they can be worn year round with either a long sleeve shirt under or a button down over. Plus, I just love a cute boy in a funny t-shirt. I always look for creative ones and something every boy will not have on. I am also a huge fan of stripes. Love Owen in striped shirts. He tells me he looks like Fred in them. I have no idea what that means, but he thinks it is funny :)...oh and ANYTHING sports related - he wears as soon as it is clean!
Luckily, our fave places always carry great boy t-shirts...all of these I found at Gap and Old Navy...
Pair any of these with a cute pair of cargo shorts and tennis shoes and he will look stylish and still be able to play at recess. I used to dress him up all the time (still do for church and special events), but I realized how miserable he is dressed that way. I know how much his daddy can complain about clothes, so I am sure he feels the same :). You can find cute tshirts everywhere! I find them on zulily and all my favorite online sites. I also have found them at WM, Target, Children's Place and Academy. Always be open and grab them.
Well that was not much but, like I said, my boy is easy :). Hope that helped!! Where do you find cute boy clothes?
Tomorrow, we are back to y'all - yes, Moms have back to school clothes too!
