Cannot believe I’m officially shopping for a BOY over here … but I’m so excited! Ever since I’ve found out I was carrying a baby boy [gender reveal here in case you missed it!], I’ve had a ton of fun chatting with John and dreaming up this little boy’s future life [what will he be like? will he be wild? a mama’s boy? what will his style be?! etc]. Obviously we would have done this with either gender but I’m just so in awe of being a boy mama and am incredibly giddy about it.
As I’ve started to slowly shop [mainly browse] for this little boy, I’ve definitely noticed a few things I’m drawn to. One being warm, neutral tones. I know when you think of boy, you tend to think blue, which I’m fine with, but I also like a lot of tans, browns, and neutrals for our little guy. Luckily I think boy clothing has come a long way over the past several years and there are a lot more options. I’m also noticing just HOW MANY OPTIONS there are for … everything baby! It’s overwhelming! But, thankfully, I love shopping so it hasn’t felt like that much of a chore to figure out what makes sense for us.
From what I’m hearing, though, it seems like less is more in the beginning, and you can always purchase more items once the baby is here and you know what they like / don’t. I’m also trying to be minimal with his clothing & items, as our space is small and I also hear that newborns pretty much live in onesies and basics anyways. I’m still not quite sure about many of the bigger product decisions … and we have time … but I did want to share some of my thoughts so far!
The trunks you see above are by Petite Keep. I’ll be storing sentimental clothing, toy and paper goods in those as he grows. I think they’re a great way to store those special items while also keeping a clean aesthetic around the house.
I had so much fun putting that list together and I hope you enjoyed it! For all my boy mama’s out there [or anyone!], what are your favorite clothing retailers for baby boys? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for being here! xo.
