So I am determined to find nice-looking clothes for E. Not that he doesn't have some already: my family and friends who bought him clothes have been great on that score. But he's also not going to fit those clothes forever, and I want to make sure I know what our options are as he gets bigger. So from now on, I'll try to post on a regular basis about places I find that have a decent selection of clothing for boys. I'll include stores online, as well as stuff in the States and here in the UK. And if anyone has suggestions on places to look, I'd love to hear them in the comments!
My first stop? Next.
1) A nice graphic tee, hoodie, and jeans. It's a simple outfit, but it's great. If nothing else, I've learned that putting E in layers is really the way to go, especially in colder weather or on days that we go to play group. When something inevitably spills, or he gets into the water tray, at least he hasn't soaked the only top he has on.
2) I know this is incredibly preppy, and if you're not up for brightly-coloured chinos, there is a khaki option as well. Funnily enough, most of the time over here, if you're getting smart clothes for a little boy and there's a tie involved, the outfit is almost always a 3-piece suit. It's nice to see something a little less stiffly formal.
3) A trendy jumper (complete with t-shirt underneath) is always a nice thing to have. It just helps to have a slightly smarter option as a light layer, especially for things like church, weddings, or smart parties. And jeans with a pair of braces are adorable. I got E a similar pair for his birthday...

*(Note: I just love this store. Aside from giving me a voucher for online shopping the last time I was in store buying E clothes, they probably don't know I exist, so I haven't been compensated to talk about how awesome their clothes are.)
