Lounge Wear

I will be the first to admit when I found out I was having a boy my first thought was, what in the world am I going to dress him in? It has been my mission ever since to find the cutest boy clothes I can and let me tell you it is not easy. Stores are most certainly biased towards girls clothing. Normally they have like 8 racks of girl stuff and two racks of boy stuff, so not fair! I love to dress my little man in all things smocked, but I am starting to realize he needs some practical, as I like to call them “lounge wear”. Outfits he can crawl in and just wear around the house. Enter Baby Gap. For some reason I have never bought Sterling anything from here. I think because everytime I have gone in the store here the selection was poor. Online I found much cuter things. Has anyone bought stuff from baby Gap? Is the quality good? Here are a few precious things I found that I am eyeing for my sweet boy. The best part they are all under $40! Any other suggestions of places to shop for cute boy clothes?

    What you found is super cute!! I don't have kids so I don't know about the quality of Baby Gap. But Sterling always looks precious in the pictures that you post!! I am sure whatever you dress him in he will look adorable!

    I loved to dress Matthew in smocked outfits, once he turned 1 Dan was like, no way he is too big. Boys are so much harder but I would say about 95% of his clothes are from The Gap. He will wear a couple things from mini boden but he think those are too babyish. A couple years ago I would buy him clothes from gymboree because I love that they have the brother and sister outfits. Now he is just too cool for school and rolls his eyes at me!!!

    Aiden has several things from Gap and I love them…the wash very well without shrinking and getting all wrinkled! Love the outfits you picked out!

    I buy a ton of (babygirl) things from babygap. The little girl stuff is seriously over the top fabulous and reasonable- especially b/c there is ALWAYS a promo.

    I just bought James a bunch of winter clothes from Baby Gap when they had a 30% off everything promotion. I love it! He looks so cute in their jeans and button ups and sweaters. And I got him an orange puffy coat too- really cute!

    girl, don't waste too much $$ on them. they are good, we have a few things, like jeans and cords from there, but target is great too. he is going to grow BIG TIME in the next few months and i am not spending good $ for lawton to wear it twice. have you even looked through target or old navy yet? old navy has great stuff online. and CHEAP!!

    I NEVER find anything at Baby Gap. Mini Boden was great for Julian from 6-12 months. Cute, but not too sweet. and the quality is great! NOrdstrom started carrying the line.

    I am a Baby Gap addict. I think the quality is good and while I may not love every single collection they come out with, they get new ones in a lot and have great sales. I believe they do markdowns on Tuesday or Wednesday. I also think their sizing has worked best for Stella than most others. Janie & Jack has cute things, too, and I'm obsessed w/ Peek…Aren't You Curious BUT it's MUCH cuter in-store than it is on-line but they don't have many stores.

    Such adorable clothes!!! Do you have a Dillard's where you live? They have cute boy clotes and a lot of things are marked down right now. I also think Target has really cute boy clothes and especially when a little one is growing, you wont spend an arm and a leg for something they will only wear a few times!

    I love Baby Gap, but I also like Janie and Jack, Hannah Andersson, Target for play clothes. You can't dress them in smocked outfits all the time though I'd like to!
