A question I get quite often from friends and readers is "where do you buy all of Sam's clothes?!". Shopping for baby boys can be frustrating. I'm not a huge fan of baby blue or sports or even smocked outfits for boys. Gasp, I know but sometimes all a smocked outfit does is make a boy look feminine and Sam already gets mistaken for a girl half of the time. It even happened today during our ice cream date. While his entirely navy and turquoise outfit is drenched in vanilla, someone says "Oh, she looks like she's enjoying that." We also get "He's just 'too pretty' to be a boy." quite often. Psh, another topic for another day.

Anyway, back to my rant. Boy shopping is hard. Even though my husband's style can mostly be described as a "seersuckin' Brooks Brother", mine is a little more on the edgy style, so I like to incorporate the two in Sam's style. Seersucker shorts + a graphic tee, for example. We also love our moccasins and accessories. That's where Instagram small shops come in. I wanted to share a few of our favorites + some of the items we are currently coveting.

Freshly Picked. Okay so maybe not so "small" anymore, but I used to dream of the day I would have a little babe to dress in these moccasins. The first wearable item I ever purchased for Sam was a pair of crib moccs in "weathered brown". They make great gifts and are the perfect memory keepers. There are a lot of "dupes" out there, but you really can't beat the quality or the customer service of Freshly Picked. They're also constantly coming out with new styles, so there's something for everyone. They're the only shoes Sam has ever worn.

Trilogy Design Co. Our favorite graphic tees! Sam currently wears this tee constantly and he lived in the rompers in the Winter. We also love the "Naps suck" (because to Sam they do!) and the "sicker than your average" tee because Mama loves her some B.I.G. No shame, yall. None.

Imperishable Clothing Co. Starting conversations about Jesus with out favorite t-shirts. Enough Said!

Noxx Beanies. Y'allllll. There's something so stylish about a baby in a beanie and we love these. They release new styles constantly and I haven't seen one I didn't immediately become obsessed with. The green stripe camo is our current fav!

Rags to Raches. OMG. There is no cuter or easier to get on and off romper out there! We love our RAGS!

Baby Breez. Sam lives in his Pj's, mostly because he refuses to nap in regular clothes, so it's just easier to keep him in them until after his last nap of the day. These rompers are a dream because they are easily converted to sleeper by pulling the foot cuffs over them. I wish we would have found them sooner!

Little Mister. Our favorite suspenders and bow ties! I plan on ordering a new bow tie for Easter and currently can't decide between the "white roses" or the "navy roses". Oh the struggle!

More Favorites:

Modern Burlap
Tribe is Alive
George Hats
Savage Seeds
Tubby Todd
Little Blue Olive

P.S. Not a small shop, but I do love Cat and Jack for Target. Sam is in the phase where he's CONSTANTLY dirty. He's all boy! So $5 for a super cute t-shirt is right up our alley.

P.P.S. Most of these shops carry little girls clothing as well and I'm just as obsessed with most of it!
