What’s hot in baby fashion this summer? Whatever it is, I can tell you that Scrunchy Face probably isn’t wearing it.
I ‘m impressed by parents who consistently keep their little ones looking spiffy in frilly this and color-coordinated that. As much as I would love to clothe Scrunchy Face well enough to qualify for a spread in Vogue, at this point he’d be a better candidate for Mismatched Socks Monthly. When I’m dressing him, I tend to grab whatever’s at the top of his dresser drawers and go. I pretty much do the same with Saucer Eyes and have since he was a newborn.
Aren’t traditions nice?
My rule of thumb when it comes to dressing my kids is that short of a party or school picture day, any outfit is a-OK as long it’s warm, clean, comfortable and not emblazoned with potentially offensive text. (Though if someone were to buy Scrunchy Face an “I’m With the MILF” onesie, I could potentially let it slide…)
I might take greater care with my son’s attire when he’s older, but for now, while Scrunchy Face doesn’t know any better, I’m going to keep on committing baby fashion faux pas with abandon. You’re welcome to check out a few of them below as long as you promise not to sic the Fashion Police on us, because if there’s one look I won’t approve of, it’s prison stripes.
What are your baby fashion faux pas?
