Boys Clothes can be Cute Too!

December 19, 2011

So pre-children, I continuously thought to myself how much I wanted a girl. …To dress her up in the cutest little clothes and do her hair and all that stuff…

But what I didn’t realize – was the never ending obsession of having cute clothes!

Thankfully, by having two boys I was able to tone down the shopping habits quite a bit – but Man, There are seriously still some REALLY cute stuff for boys.image

One of my favorite stores to shop at for the cutest boy clothes is The Children’s Place.  Originally I thought of them as an expensive ‘Mall Store’.  But when I went in there for the first time, I discovered that the stereotype wasn’t true. At All.

In fact, I instantly fell in love with the style there – and was able to walk out of the store with a full season’s worth of clothes for my son and all under $100.

So now pretty much each season, we make our trip to The Children’s Place and load up on clothes for the boys.


Not sure why, but I got hooked on one brand of Jeans for my boys since Andrew was born – and haven’t used any other brands.  I was given this pair of Jeans from Children’s Place for Ethan, and Oh My Goodness! They’re just so adorable, I can hardly contain myself from pinching his little butt!

So Guess what?  We’re changing brands Winking smile

I love these zip-up hoodies that have the thick fuzzy lining in them.  Of Course I think they’re sold out online right now, because I can’t seem to find them anywhere, but we’ve gotten this type of sweatshirt for our boys each fall and use them as a jacket for days when it’s more mild outside. They’re SO cute, and easier to wash than a regular jacket.


Andrew also got a really nice sweater that will work perfectly for Christmas.  I love how sharp he looks in sweaters.

I also love how easy these are to wash – no special instructions. Just wash, and Dry Open-mouthed smile



The Children’s Place Clothing does run generally a size larger than most other places that I’ve shopped at.  So when I buy 12 month stuff for Ethan, It’s like I’m buying size 18 months.

It’s not really a big deal so long as you remember!


This summer I totally forgot about the sizing when I bought Andrew’s entire summer wardrobe.  I bought them all in size 3T, when he was just barely getting toward the end of 2T clothes.  I just figured I didn’t want to buy him a new size halfway through the summer, you know?

The shirts drowned Andrew – and the shorts! HA!! I thank God that they had the pull-to-size elastic in them!

I was able to use the shorts, but bought a new set of shirts (Which were on clearance) in size 2T and we made it through the summer.  Next summer he can wear his 3T shirts and will most likely still fit into his 3T shorts from last summer Smile  So we’re set for a while!  Great Deal!

    My mother loves to shop at the Children’s Place to purchase clothes for our boys. Their clothes are so adorable and affordable!

  3. Awww, they are so cute! Any clothes we have ever gotten from Children’s Place were so nice and have lasted a long time. We love hand-me-downs, so it’s worth it to pay extra for something that you’re going to use for multiple kids!!

    and I absolutely LOVE that sweater!

  4. I love the Children’s Place too! We don’t have one really close to us, which is a bummer, but I get to the outlet occasionally and can order online, which is awesome! 🙂

  5. I have to say that I was totally in the same spot with my first. I thought how much fun it would be to have a girl because of the clothes… but my first was a boy. And actually, I DID have a hard time buying for him because truthfully – everything was ugly. THE ONLY STORE I could buy his clothes was The Children’s Place. Seriously. That was what his wardrobe consisted of – ONLY Children’s Place clothes. They were so so so cute. I hope to have another boy someday so I can buy more cute stuff!

  6. I absolutely love Children’s Place! They’re so affordable and such nice quality. I loved seeing my boys in their clothes!

  7. They really do have the cutest clothing and it isn’t totally out of my price range either! Love that store!

  8. I do find cute stuff for boys, but I’m always really angry/frustrated around holiday times when all the cute dresses for girls come out and boys are left with the option of sweater-vests…sweater-vests…and MORE sweater-vests!!! I freaking hate sweater-vests! >.< Why can't they make cute MATCHING outfits that go with the girl's dresses or something? *sigh*

  9. I love, love, love Children’s Place clothes! Their clothes are quality clothes and their prices are great!
