    How To Build A Baby Boy’s Wardrobe



    This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    After having two little girls, I was really looking forward to building my baby boy’s wardrobe. People think that little girls have all the fun when it comes to fashion but I’m learning that there are so many cute things for little boys too but most of these are just seen as your basics. Here’s the thing: these basics are the building blocks to any babies wardrobes and are definitely must-haves.

    So how do you get started with building your baby boy’s wardrobe? Here are some tips that I’ve found useful:

    Choose a color scheme.

    This is a tip that I picked up from my friend Katie from Typical Katie. We have sons that are a month apart. She has an older son as well that dresses super cute so she’s got this dressing boy thing down. Something that I didn’t anticipate was liking to put BC in shades of gray, black and navy blues. Not only does this make it easier to match with other things, it also helps with stains.

    Don’t be afraid of patterns.

    And not the typical boy patterns like cars, trucks and things. Stripes are really popular now and these are a great neutral to have in your baby’s wardrobe. Because they’re so small, going with smaller stripes don’t overpower the clothing. Also, try a pattern in muted colors.

    Pick accessories that are as functional as they are cute.

    Teething is a necessary evil that brings forth incessant drooling. It’s terrible. I mean, drool is just EVERYWHERE. While bibs do the job of keeping drool off of clothing, they aren’t normally the most fashion forward–until now. Bibs are definitely a necessary accessory and are getting more and more cute!

    Finding basics that fall in line with these three tips used to be hard and only available at baby boutiques costing small fortunes but not anymore.

    Introducing Carter’s Little Baby Basics

    All of my kids have worn Carter’s as babies. I’ve always loved their clothes for a couple reasons:

    1. Their clothes are always age appropriate and on-trend.
    2. The durability is unmatched.
    3. The quality of fabric is incredible.

    When I walked into Carter’s for the first time after having BC to shop, it was a little weird because it was my first time shopping on the boys side. By weird I mean exciting.After having two little girls who love all things pink and purple, I was excited to finally build my baby boy's wardrobe! But even that can be daunting!

    While all of Carter’s clothes are really soft and comfortable feeling, this Little Baby Basics line feels EXTRA soft and snuggly! The teething bib is so soft that it’s not a bother around BC’s neck at all. That and it’s super cute. My husband’s favorites are the sleeveless Original Bodysuits. These are so cute on BC. They show off his mini muscles and make it so he won’t overheat in this hot Georgia summer as well as serve as great undershirts for the fall and winter.

    How To Build Your Baby’s Fall Wardrobe

    Fall is in the air and it's time to get these baby's clothes together? Need tips on how to build a quality fall wardrobe? I've got you covered here!
    This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

    I know that I continue to mention that Fall is one of my favorite seasons and it’s mainly for the clothes and the activities. I mean, I love apples and all the goodness that you can create with them but I also love looking good while I’m reaching up and grabbing them ha! When it comes to children, their Fall wardrobe is even more important because these guys are fickle pickles and are trying to get across that their opinions matter.

    Building a Fall Wardrobe

    Naturally the first thing that comes to mind with this Fall wardrobe is stylish but that’s not all that matters!

    Creating Cute Layers

    From the time that mini was a baby, I learned that layering was such a key element with creating any of her seasonal wardrobe. We did this with Carter’s bodysuits. I chose Carter’s because of the way that their bodysuits grow with the baby’s. Growing up, I remember that my mom would tuck my shirts in so tightly to make sure the wind didn’t make it’s way to my skin and the bodysuits helped to ensure that I kept mini sick free when she was smaller and now abc.

    After starting with the base layer of either the bodysuit or their undershirts, you can create so many looks with just a few items. Here I pieced together this beautiful woven dress, which can be worn alone during the warmer times, with a denim shirt and boots.

    Choosing Versatile Pieces

    My goal is to pick about 10 pieces per season that can be worn interchangeably. One of my favorite things about Carter’s is that they do a great job of putting together ready to buy outfits. For abc, I got these cute overalls with this gauze top paired with some faux suede flats but then the gauze top pairs perfectly with these fringe leggings and boots as well! Versatility is key!

    Choosing Quality over Quantity

    I’m supreme bargain hunter because as a once single mother now married mom of two GIRLS, I don’t believe in spending an arm and a leg on some clothes that they’ll eventually grow out of. But this is why I love the price point of Carter’s—I don’t break the bank and I get incredibly quality. I used to wonder how kids kept their clothes stain free and it’s not that they do, it’s that the clothes are a great quality so they wash well.

    Creating A Fall Wardrobe With Carter’s

    It’s no new information that I’m a lover of Carter’s. Last year when they announced that they would be increasing their sizes to support bigger kids, I was incredibly excited about that. I have two girls that I want to keep as young as I can and Carter’s helps me do that along with my own crafting. They have the most stylish, versatile, and age-appropriate clothing for little girls that I never have to worry about if shorts are too short for my long-legged mini or if it’s girly enough for my princess abc.

    Wild And Free Collection

    When I went shopping for abc, I saw this collection and immediately loved it. I felt like it was such a celebration of little girls being wild and free in a world that can be so restrictive. Naturally I got a lot of these pieces because my girls are the very embodiment of being wild and free.

    Paris In Atlanta

    I made mini a peasant-style tunic out of a Paris-inspired cotton that she loved. We paired it with the perfect combination giving her grace and style!

I made mini a peasant-style tunic out of a Paris-inspired cotton that she loved. We paired it with the perfect combination giving her grace and style!

    I took mini shopping with me during one of my many fabric excursions and I let her pick out some fabric. This is one of the fabrics that she chose–a Paris themed fabric. As she touched the soft cotton on the bolt, I saw so much of me in her. You can tell that she really appreciates the beauty of the fabric. While she stood there playing with the fabric I asked her what she thought she would want made out of this. “A shirt Mommy. I think a shirt would be so nice.” In my head she meant like a regular t-shirt but this isn’t a stretch cotton for that kind of style. Mini is a beautiful combination of tom-boy and girly girl so I wanted to make her something that would allow her to just be her. When I finished this peasant-style tunic for her she was so excited! Pairing it with some white jeans (which will probably NOT stay white ha!) and sandals makes for a perfect summer outfit.

    Summer time is here and we’re ready to celebrate with flowy dresses! One of my favorite things about being able to sew is the ability to make matching outfits. Mini and abc have on their super cute peasant dresses that that match my mommy version of it. Off the shoulder is one of my FAVORITE styles. I always feel so sexy and feminine in them. This dress is so easy to wear and the mini length makes it not look as homely as it could.

    African Wax Print Toddler Romper

    When I bought this fabric, I had no idea what I wanted to do with it. I’ve made a couple pairs of harem pants with it but thought that this little romper was so perfect for it!!!

    Rompers are some of my favorite pieces for both children and adults. It’s a whole outfit in one piece–no worries about matching. This romper is one of abc’s favorites. Whenever I take it out, she gets excited. There are 2 buttons on the front for easy of getting in and out of it.

    Perfect for play and dressing up a bit, this romper is such a hit with us!
