Kid Tested, Mom Approved Link-Up {The Style File}

I'm linking up today (a day late) for a fun series & link-up party going on throughout September hosted by 6 awesome ladies including Vanessa from Sunflower State of Mind and Julie from The Girl in the Red Shoes!  Today's topic is The Style File...where are your favorite places to shop for your little one?  What items have you found that are stylish yet still hold up to lots of play time?

 
I clearly don't have much experience, but I can give you a new mom/newborn point of view!  I will say that those of you thinking that boy moms don't have as much fun dressing their little ones, you are so wrong.  We may not get bows and tutus, but there are so many precious boy clothes out there, I've had a blast dressing my little man.

Jack's style (if you can label a 4 month old's style) is preppy...probably since that is how my husband dresses.  Even before Jack was born, my girlfriends and I would say "oh, that's so Jack," while looking at a baby polo and plaid short outfit.
 
I don't like dressing him in clothes that aren't super soft and comfy too.  He lays around all day...what's the point of dressing up?  We always go a little dressier on Sundays for church though!    I have found that I prefer one-pieces at this stage.  They are so much easier when getting the babe in and out of his infant seat. 
 
My favorite places to shop so far have been Gap, Carter's, Macy's and Target.  Jack has a lot of Ralph Lauren too!  The prices are right and the outfits are so adorable. 
 
Gap - Love their polos, knit shorts and graphic tees
 
Gap
 
Carter's - Favorites include the zip-up footed pajamas (MUST be zip-up), short and tee sets (especially plaid shorts), onesies (they have the softest)

Carter's
 
Target - Onesies (love the Cherokee and Circo brand onesies) and accessories

Circo chevron onesie from Target
 
Macy's - A great go-to place for Carter's and Ralph Lauren

    1. Thanks Ashley! Good to know about TJ Maxx!!! Macy's usually doesn't put their Ralph Lauren on sale so that is great to know.

  5. That latest picture of Jack with the blue checker shirt just melts me, Chelsea! Such a cutie!!! I totally agree on keeping it comfortable when they're little--there's nothing worse than stiff, scratchy clothes on a baby! As for the Ralph Lauren stuff, I've had good luck at Marshall's and TJ Maxx too!
