To say I’m having fun dressing Henry would be a vast understatement. I can’t even imagine if I had had a girl- I’d be teetering on bankruptcy, no doubt. But there are still lots of fun clothes for tiny fellas (teeny tiny blazers make me weak in the knees).  A lot of people have asked on Instagram for my favorite places to shop for Henry and so here we go!  Like everything else,  I approach it with a high/low attitude.  The bulk of his clothes come from affordable sources and I spurge now and then on things that really make me squeal (after all, it took us so much to get this baby and so I tell myself it’s okay to spend $60 on a baby t-shirt if I want to, which I KNOW is ridiculous!!!)   It’s so easy to get carried away- case in point:

(sheet from Rikshaw Design– striped shirt from Zara (no longer available-similar here) and sweater from Gap Kids (also gone), jeans from Old Navy)

Brands I Shop the Most:

Carter’s (most of Henry’s pajamas- also great basics)

Old Navy (basics, jeans, trendy outfits & accessories for less- 40% off all baby & kids today)

GapKids (all. the. things. 40% off all baby & kids here today too! Ruh-roh)

H&M (50% of Henry’s wardrobe- stylish, affordable, well made)

Zara (baby “high fashion” at lower prices)

Magnificent Baby (amazing onesies that close with magnets- awesome for bleary-eyed middle of the night changes!)

Some current closet faves:

I saw this Jacadi striped shirt and reversible puffer vest at Bloomies and freeeeeaked my face off. And it’s French, so that just sealed the deal. Jeans are Imps & Elf and booties are GapKids (but not available anymore- similar here)

Mac & Mia is a subscription kids clothing service where every month you get a box of goodies and keep what you want and return what you don’t! They sent Henry this AMAZING outfit with items from brands like Egg by Susan Lazar (a fave of mine) and the Imps & Elf jeans shown above and below.  I bought those baby Converse when I was pregnant and while they still don’t fit Henry, I can’t wait to see him in them!


I order a TON of his stuff from H&M Kids, as I said. Like, a ton.  I love the H&M Conscious onesies and basics but they also have some adorable fashion-y things too!  These are a couple of items I just picked up : star jumpsuit, henley, car onesie, army sweatpants (sold out).


Who says babies can’t wear black?  These insanely soft pieces from Nununu are super hip, adorable and somehow smell SO SO SO amazing. And the scent stays even after washing. It’s incredible- I want to just stuff my face in them on the daily. Skull suit, dot suit, star pants.


I mean, come on. :)

And stripes. SO. MANY. STRIPES.  From anywhere and everywhere. Ralph Lauren, Splendid and Polarn O. Pyret  (LOVE this brand- as well as Hanna Andersson)


Like myself, I don’t dress Henry in ONE style.  One day a black skull onesie the next stripes and overalls. :)  Here are two looks I’m loving for him right now.
