Months before Kyle joined our family, I began putting together his wardrobe. Thanks to a friend who used to work at a local Baby Gap store — who would clue me in on their upcoming sales — I was able to stock up on a nice array of clothes without spending too much money.
It’s hard to believe that my days of shopping at Baby Gap are numbered. Kyle is 5 now and probably won’t be able to fit in their clothes much longer. He won’t care. But I will. I bought a lot of firsts for him there: onesies, polo shirts and skinny jeans. For the past four years, Baby Gap has been my go-to store for 80 percent of his daily wear.
Since this may be the last summer he can wear these pieces, I give to you a classic Kyle outfit:
→ Fedora, swim trunks (Baby Gap)
→ T-Shirt (Cancun International Airport)
→ Cover-up (Mini Boden)
→ Sunglasses (Hot Wheels)
→ Tattoo (Angry Birds)
For the record, I’m normally not a fan of fedoras. But on little kids (and senior citizens), I think they’re quite jaunty. In a good way.
And, yes. I got everything on sale. Well, almost. I paid full price for the T-shirt during a recent trip to the Riviera Maya. But since we were on a family vacation, that doesn’t really count, does it?
