An Aidyn Fashion Show!

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!

Great job shopping Britt, and I will try to forget what you said about Target. :)

Maritza said...

I think he looks sooo much like you! He's so freaking adorable!

You put my kids to shame. At this point it's a WIN if they even have clothes on. That's what two crazy kids and being pregnant does to you, I guess. When I had just Alyssa she always looked perfect. Now? Ya,nahsomuch.

Aly @ Analyze This said...

Sign that kid up to model! He is so adorable! Future heartbreaker, ladies .... WATCH OUT!!

Hotcakes said...

Oh he looks soo cute! It's so much harder to find cute boy stuff than girls. I'm so unimpressed everytime I go to target now days all of their boy clothes are very tacky and the girl clothes are to die for. WTF so not fair.

He is going to look soo cute this year!!

WhisperingWriter said...

So cute! Isn't it fun to dress kids up? I love finding deals too. People are always like, "Gymboree is so overpriced!" and I'm all, "Not when you shop their sales!"

Tara said...

Venassa said...
