I’ve noticed something about being a parent…. how you dress your kids, or rather, how you let or do not let them dress themselves says more about who you are than who they are.
It starts when we first start getting used to the idea of being pregnant with an actual human that will one day be a squishy baby… we start to imagine them in little onesies and gowns and hats. A few months later when the gender is confirmed and showers commence, we can really go crazy with building an itty bitty wardrobe.
I have a girl and two boys, and I will definitely say that the clothing was more over-the-top with the girl. And seriously, there’s just so much to go crazy with! From hair bows (Yes, Southern moms, this means YOU!) to ruffles and the occasional tutu, baby girls can easily live out their moms’ dress-up dreams. With the boys, I’ve noticed there tends to be a more distinct decision made on the part of the parents. Some go with the more traditional cutesy clothes like sailor suits and knee socks while others rely on more casual onesies with dinosaurs on them. For every flavor of person that parents, there is a style of dress for your children to suit you.
I’ve recently discovered a new place to score kids clothes that seems to offer a range of styles for the parent who drifts toward the ruffles and the one who likes a more rough and tumble look. Best Dressed Tot features name-brand clothes for kids of all sizes, types, and styles.
For instance, this little number would be perfect for a summer baby boy, probably one whose family lives in the South. (Because I NEVER saw anything like this during my time in Seattle!)
But for the boy who is a little more laid-back in his style and likely to get dirty, this pirate t-shirt would carry him through long summer afternoons of playing outside. (Harris would love this shirt!)
And if you’re going on a boat this summer…. this outfit? Maybe?
I personally could not even handle how cute this little sun bonnet would be on a baby girl… I mean, just stop. Too adorable.
And if you’re the type to ruffle-up your daughter’s pants, here’s the perfect outfit for you.
If you want your kids to be super patriotic this Fourth of July, then Best Dressed Tot is definitely your go-to distributor of all things Stars and Stripes in children’s clothing!
And here’s what I know Evelyne would love–
Right now Best Dressed Tot is having a big clearance sale, so if anyone is looking for kids clothes, this might be a perfect place for you to do some quick shopping during naptime!
