Ok Moms I am on a mission would you like to join me? As you can see I have a boys graphic tshirt from Carters pictured to the left. Now I am only speaking for myself but I am personally tired of going shopping for my son who will be 6 yrs old in a week and when I want to just buy him some tshirts these are the kinds of tshirts that are available.
I mean everywhere you go, no matter what store you go to Gap, Macy’s, Target, JcPenneys wherever this is all you see for boys for the summer. I know that boys are rough with their clothes and yes they are boys, but there has to be better options out there. Girls seem to have such a wide range of clothes to choose from. Even my husband had mentioned one time we were in the Disney Store at the mall, that “there seems to be more to choose from for the girls”. Why is that?
I know I probably spend way too much time thinking about this but I like for my son to look nice. I want him to be comfortable but be presentable. I’m not in to dressing him in skull heads (pictured to the right) and stuff like that, he doesn’t even know what that is nor do I want him to. I fully believe that if you take the time to teach your child to look nice and to take care of their stuff at a young age, they will continue that as they grow up.
I found this shirt online at Old Navy and I like it. They have a white one with a tiger face on the back. I think it’s nice it looks comfortable and for $10 it’s really a steal. You can dress this up or down. It’s cute and different.
Now I know that the “skater look” is all about the hoodies and skulls (which I just mentioned above that I don’t like), but I did come across a nice tshirt from Shaun White (who as we all know and love the cute, long red-hair snowboarder from the Olympics). He has a clothing line out with Target. Which I do like to shop at Target, so I was surprised I have never seen his clothes before. But this shirt is nice. You can definitely layer this or just wear it alone. But the great thing is the price. Online this shirt is available at Target for $8.99. So for a more casual look this might be a nice way to go.
The other problem I have with my son is that he is fairly on the tall, lean side so I need to look for shorts and pants that have the adjustable waist. They are becoming more easier to find but can be a little more expensive.
But I have to say my favorite look for my son is the madras shorts or plaid shorts. I absolutely love this look from CDW Kids. But they are fairly expensive, so that’s my point. How do you dress your son in a reasonably priced way but not give up quality and look?
I would love to hear your thoughts, and where you shop for your son.
