Excited to see some of our fall fashion finds?
Well here he is, Aidyn-man himself, sporting three of his new outfits:(All that I could talk him into!)
We were able to mix and match between Baby Gap, Old Navy, and some thrifted finds at Once Upon a Child. I spent just over a hundred dollars and was able to buy: Two pairs of jeans (Gap), The Jacket, Graphic T', gray beanie, and striped thermal (Old Navy), two button ups, gray sweater, pair of loafers, three graphic t's, and a tie at (OUC)!
He'll need a few more things, but they were out of a lot of styles in his size. I'm blaming the start of the school year! We'll go back to pick up a few things in a few weeks!
The best part? I had brought Aidyns gently used clothes to Once Upon a Child to sell. I hadn't been there in a few years, when I got there I found out that the local shop doesn't pay cash anymore! BUT they do give in store credit! I was able to buy everything I found PLUS I still have a 20 dollar credit! All the tops I found were no more then 6 bucks! I had to dig to find what I wanted, but it was SO worth it!
ALSO Baby Gap has a jean sale going on right now! Buy one get the second pair for ten dollars! I was able to buy both pairs of jeans for $34! The cashier also gave me a baby denim card! Buy four pairs of jeans, get the fifth pair free! I am tempted to go buy two more pairs in the next size up!
I checked out Target, and their jeans were lacking. In fact (this may be a cuss word to some of you) I haven't found anything clothing related at Target for a while! :( Come on Target! You're better then this!!!
Old Navy was also a disappointment! They didn't have much in 4T and what they did, I wasn't too impressed with. The Jacket is a 5T and is a bit big for Aidyn, but I plan on layering with sweaters this fall. So all is well!
All and all I will call the day a success! Aidyn is looking sharp, and I am a proud Mommy! It's tough finding cute stuff for boys that doesn't have tacky cartoon characters plastered on them! (I am not a fan!) Its frustrating when you walk into the kids department and 3/4 of it is girls! Its like HELLOOOOO I want my boy to look cute too! *sigh..*
Now, I think this shoppin' mama deserves a drink!
