Hi there! I'm Becky and I blog over at byBMG. I'm thrilled Whitney asked me to guest post while she spends some time with her little man!
I'm a boy mom. Three times. I feel like I've learned a little bit in the boy fashion realm throughout my experience.
People often make the comments about baby boy clothing:
"Girl clothing is just so much cuter."
"Boy clothing is so boring."
And, honestly, sometimes it feels that way. We don't get the ruffle butts or the frilly dresses, but we can still have fun dressing up our little men!
With our third son, something just clicked. I picked up a fun pair of red moccasins and started to build outfits around them, a capsule of sorts, that I could mix and match and make look cute. So, today I wanted to share some of that with you. Does his whole closet revolve around this? No, but having a color scheme can really help pull outfits together when you're in a hurry or they mess that cute outfit you had planned! PLUS it gives me a mindset to look for when I go shopping.
So, here's our little Calvin a few months ago. This is a prime example of the capsule working. Red striped bodysuit, solid pants, and the darn cute red moccasins!
I just could NO resist getting him this outfit! This is one of the few new things he got. I think having one or two fun "statement outfits" or "splurge outfits" are totally acceptable. The red moccasins go perfectly!
Here's another example from our family pictures this fall. Those red mocs just made his outfit click, and I was able to tie everyone else's outfits around it, too.
So, below, I have a shopping list for you centered around red moccasins if you're starting fresh or some ideas at least. It's ready for spring/summer with short sleeves and some shorts. I don't spend a ton on baby clothes because they grow so quickly. Old Navy and Gap are my go-to stores mainly because I have a Gap card and get rewards to spend toward free clothes frequently. You could easily replicate this with a different color like navy or even fun camo moccasins!
What do you think?
