I know, a baby having a “wardrobe?” What a concept! Regardless, I’m kinda excited about putting one together for Alex, despite the fact that some of these items might not scream “spring.” Maybe not for most people. I find a certain freshness in them, but I am also a Picky Parent™. A few people have asked me at times where I buy Alex’s clothes. While I tend to stick with places like Old Navy, Gap and H&M for most of his clothes, I occasionally indulge in a few standout pieces from other brands. They’re not necessarily ultra-pricey, but a lot of more boutique brands tend to have more limited mileage in the sizing.
Here is one thing I’ve learned about dressing a baby. In our house, we do laundry nearly every day. And so the same pieces that Alex wears (which are mostly footed suits) keep getting placed back in the top of the dresser drawer. So he has like, 10 outfits in rotation. I’m glad I finally realized this for his next growth spurt, because previously I just kind of was impulse-buying lots of cheaper clothes in weird different sizes and styles. This time around, with it being a new season, and a new size, I was a touch more deliberate. Unfortunately Alex is subject to my own personal style philosophy, which is that pieces are utilitarian and unadorned, and all within a color palette to optimize mixing and matching.
But he’s a baby, so he gets to look cute too.
