little boy style // awesome clearance sale.

     The process of putting together collages of my favorite things is so much fun and I used to love doing this when I wrote for the Spearmint Baby blog. I stopped writing for them when we moved out to Colorado because it was just too time consuming at that point but I do miss these kind of posts. I always feel super particular about what I post on my blog because I'm very picky about how it looks and I just want to scroll down and see soft / pretty photos like I'm looking through a journal of the lovely parts of my life. This was the major reason I felt uneasy when I first started taking on sponsored content. My feelings have shifted a little and I've realized that while this blog is definitely a photo journal and a place for my art, I also LOVE working with companies and branching out into the business side of blogging.
.
     Overall I'm pretty happy with the way my blog flows right now. It's a place for me to share photos of my sweet little boys, a place to share deeper feelings and thoughts about motherhood on occasion, a place to connect with other mothers out there. In the past year though, I have also enjoyed branching out a little bit farther into the business side of blogging and it has been so much fun.
.
     So anyway, I've put together a collage today and I'm going to share it and see how it goes because I think it would be really fun to start sharing a few of these / a little more about clothing for little boys! I love shopping for my little boys' clothes. Growing up, I played with dolls all the time and sometimes when I'm doing things for my little boys, I feel so lucky because I realize that being a mom is kind of exactly the same as being a little girl and playing with my dolls and I still love it in the same way. :)
.
     I always hear moms / women talk about having daughters and how fun it is to shop for little girl clothing but I truly love everything boy. I've realized that you do have to scrounge a bit more to find cute boys' clothing because it seems like boys really do get the shaft in this area. Instead of finding bright fun colorful clothing like I see in the girls' section of the store, I often find the kind of clothing available for boys looks like it could be worn by grown men! This is such a pet peeve of mine.
.
    I always try to get the best deals on kids' clothing and almost always shop thrift stores / clearance. This is becoming a little more difficult with Roman and I've found that as my boys get older I have to invest a little more money in clothing, but I am still always looking out for great deals. The one day 40% off sale on Gymboree's summer clearance is absolutely awesome and is full of all of my favorite little boy kind of clothes: little tank tops, colorblock, seersucker, cute prints, oh my. The sale is only going on today, so be sure to check it out and grab a few cute things! It's also a great chance to stock up on clothes for next summer!

  1. Cute choices! I love little boy clothes too, but I will admit that now that I have a girl, I find girlie clothes to be pretty exciting as well- I like the challenge of trying to match their clothes for special events. I love how you put this together with the links! I need to learn how to do things like that! :)

  9. You know I've never been to Gymbree for boys clothes....but I think I would be willing to try that. Honestly I always shop at Target but for those prices I might be swayed to shop elsewhere.

  16. I definitely think that sponsored posts and collages have a place on your blog - obviously, you still want it to reflect your voice, but you should do what feels right! That being said, I always do love seeing posts about baby clothes - we don't have any little ones (yet) but it gives me even more baby fever than I already have! If we have a boy, I have a feeling I'll love the hunt for cute clothes just as much as if he were a girl :)

  17. That is a great sale!!!! I might have to pick some things up.

  18. Ahh, how adorable and I love boy clothes, though I never thought I would!! I actually enjoy shopping for my son's clothing more than mine! <3

  19. I constantly coo over baby things! My boyfriend and I always stop at the shoes and laugh at how teeny they are. Can't wait to have a little one and be able to play real-life dress up! Obviously not for a while as I realise they're a much bigger commitment than just playing dress up!

    Very cute choices though!

  20. Those are some cute boys clothes. I have always heard it's hard to shop for boys mostly because it's expensive
