Hi everyone, I’m kicking off the week by shifting some fashion attention from me to my kiddos. Moms out there, I think we can all agree that shopping for clothes for kids is both exciting and fun and tiresome and daunting, especially when you have two genders to shop for. Like all rookie first time moms, I too made the mistake of buying too much earlier on when I had Aiden. From cute mini tennis shoes to stylish mommy and me outfits to organic onsies embroidered with his names, I bought them all and quickly discovers that babies spit up, throw up, pee and defecate several times a day to even appreciate those designer clothes, not to mention they grow faster than weeds after a good rain.
With Miss K, I learned from my rookie mistake and held off buying all these cute dresses and things. She wore a few pieces that Aiden passed down that were still cute and gender neutral. The only thing I splurged on was their shoes because cheap bad shoes not only wears so much faster but worse, they will hurt the developing children’s feet in the long run. So today I’m sharing some shopping tips buying clothes for growing tots.
You don’t have to shop at designer stores to get designer brands. thredUP is the easiest way to shop (and sell) high-quality secondhand clothes that can save up to 90% of retail. Because kids grow so quickly, and can switch up a size in a matter of months, paying full price isn’t smart shopping. Some of the pieces on thredUp even has original price tag still attached and never worn (probably waiting to be sent from one novice mom to another). I’ve teamed up with thredUP to give my readers a great discount for first time buyers. Use code PCM40 for 40% first-time orders, discount up to $50!! Expires on 5/1/17.
As for toddler shoes, I have bought many brands (Adidas, See Kai Run, Pedipeds) but my all time favorite is Australian brand Bobux. Their shoes are super light and comfy and extremely stylish. My neighbors and fellow moms at their school ask about them all the time. Their newest spring styles for Aiden and Miss K’s age is so good, I want to buy everything! Moms with infants and tots, if you haven’t tried this brand, I highly highly recommend that you look into it. Adding icing on the cake, use POSH25 to get 25% off your entire order, that means both the new styles and the sale styles are all 25% off.
