Fashion Friday: Henry Gates, Fashion Plate

To say I have fun dressing Henry is the understatement of the year. Picking out the day’s outfit brings me a generous amount of glee every morning! (He, however, is less thrilled- as of late getting him dressed is like trying to put a duvet cover on a fast moving comforter (a great quote from Jim Gaffigan- if you have not read his book “Dad Is Fat” you need to- I cried laughing).

And to say I have fun SHOPPING for Henry is the second understatement of the year.  When he finally started fitting into Crewcuts I nearly cried with joy.  I thought shopping for boys would be so boring compared to girls, but the options are so adorable now for little dudes (other than all the clothing with weird slogans like “Space Hunk” and “Mommy’s Boyfriend” — uh, NO).  I know in a few short years (months?) he’ll start having opinions about his attire, but until then I plan to dressing him how I want- which some days is Stockbroker On Nantucket Baby, others Hipster Brooklyn Baby and others still  Classic Country Rockwell Painting Baby. A lot of you ask me what Henry is wearing on Instagram so I wanted to do a post about what he wears- I shop a lot at H&M (best organic onesies out there- don’t bother with any others), Zara, Boden (20% off today), Joules, Gap Kids (40% off today), Crewcuts (30% off today), Carters, Oshkosh, Old Navy, Nordstrom, Tea Collection (20% off today) , Lands End, Target (Cat & Jack line is so cute), Gymboree….so, basically everywhere?

Today we went more Weekend Prepster….. (captured trying to put Ollie’s harness on the stone dog- die.)

I have a REAL addiction to buying him shoes. THEY ARE SO TINY I CANNOT HELP MYSELF.

This was us walking in the rain the other day- plaid shirt and denim sweatpants are last season (the horror!) from Splendid, which makes such soft, high quality stuff.  I know you can’t see past the tiny baby slicker though, which is all that matters. And that FACE (he was watching a bird).

Raincoat // sneakers

Serious Henry guarding the stairs after I merely mentioned thinking about changing the runner. He (and you) all said no so…. I’m not gonna mess with him.

This kid is heaven- I want to eat him up. He’s the happiest baby on any block and just LOVES being outside now that the weather is warm.  Even when I dress him like this.

Here are a bunch of outfits Henry wither already owns or has coming (because doing this post was really quite violent on my wallet).

And while shopping for the little man, I also picked up a few things for myself this week such as this bronzer  (light, matte and smells like Coppertone+sunshine+a pina colada – I basically huff it), this shirt I LOVE- long, lean and on SALE (size down), these slip on sneakers and these lightweight weekender pants.

Have a great weekend you guys!
