For as long as I can remember, I always "oooed" and "aaaaed" over precious newborn girl dresses and colorful bows. I even admit to you that I purchased a few can't-pass-up-super-clearance baby girl outfits long before we thought about having kids. In Art III my junior year of highschool, I sewed a sweet green seersucker dress for my future baby girl. Needless to say, my eye was always drawn to a baby girl style... All until I found out I was pregnant.
Like any pregnant momma, I quickly headed to target and strolled through the baby aisles. Oh yes, I saw cute spring dresses, but I kept going back to the colorful button-down shirts and Easter ties. "Handsome" onesies and tiny jeans. I just thought from the beginning I was having a little boy. I went to a lot of consignment stores before the big gender ultrasound- because who can resist buying baby items!!- and while I tried to buy as little as possible and only gender neutral items, I allowed myself to purchase one item for a boy and one for a girl. I also only bought items 12 months or larger (which was super difficult) because I knew I would be receiving plenty of newborn sizes. The week before the big reveal, I bought a white dotted swiss dress with a yellow ribbon AND a red & white striped dress-shirt that reminded me of one of Patrick's shirts. Can't believe that this week I pulled out that precious shirt from the garage... Is he really old enough to wear it now?!
Long story short, boys are actually pretty fun to dress! So where do I buy most of JR's clothes?

JR pretty much wore a diaper by itself all summer because it was SO HOT... so I am excited to get out some precious cozy clothes as the weather cools. Here are some of my favorites in stores this fall:
