Clothes shopping!

Not for me silly. I'm 7 months prego and big as a house! For my 4 1/2 year old son. Whooo hoo!

For those of you who don't know, let me tell you that everything looks good on 4 1/2 year olds. Even feather boas and skinny leg jeans. But I digress...

Buying clothes for boys stinks. They will wear practically anything at this age ("except skirts." mine says, "those are for girls." hmmmm. who is planting these ideas in his little head??). The reason it stinks is because boys clothing stinks.

Unless you are way into sports and enjoy dressing your son like an inner city basketball team player. Your other choices are the uber-snobby-expensive lines of boys clothing that will make my kid look like he belongs to a prep school polo team. *shudder*

So you have your choice between making your kid look like a sports nut or making him look like a WASP.

There is really only one store that is more helpful in dressing your kid like a cool kid without the team logos or 100% cashmere. It's H&M. My metrosexual husband and I agree that most of the time they toe the line between cute (because lets face it 4 year olds are still cute) and cool.

So here are my picks for my nerdy-chic kid...



And if he was a baby rockstar...



Time to get out the door and get shopping!

I stuggle picking out boys clothes too. I'm much more at home in the pink girl section.

My boys are finally getting to the age where they want to pick out their own clothes. But that turns a pleasant shopping trip into ordeal. The selection is so limited.

I love H&M stuff for boys too - my kiddo just got a few things from there as a gift, and I definitely will be back (except the one closest to us doesn't have a kids section, so I have to figure out where to go...)

Totally agree, boys are the worst. Mine used to love track bottoms and T shirts. hated jeans but now he lives in them.

I can barely stand shopping for myself... good thing I don't have to shop for anyone else!!! But these are great picks!

I don't have any children to buy clothes for anymore. But, I remember being limited.
