I promised a BOYS ONLY review and giveaway....
AND HERE IT IS!!!
The Boy's Store is an awesome online store JUST FOR BOYS. It was started by Suzanne, a mom who was frustrated with "trying to find fun, durable clothing for boys that were not the boring standard items found at mass retailers." As a reluctant online shopper herself, she designed the store to provide as much information as possible, answers all questions, and will even measure garments to ensure a great fit! You can choose from shopping by age, item, or brand. She also offers specials, including one for parents of multiples!
"I am a trained dressmaker. I spent several years working in a small dress shop making tailored suits. Quality, durability and fit are very important. I try to choose clothing that is fun and funky but also try to provide choices for those moms who love to have matching outfits as well as get classic pieces such as plain polos... I welcome suggestions." (Suzanne)
( If you can see it...
Caden decided to be mean and spit up...
right before our photo shoot. :( booo )

Suzanne sent me the Ready, Set, Go Bermuda Short and Shirt Set by Kissy Kissy. She chose this particular item because it is from one of her favorite brands! They make a whole collection of mix and match pieces, perfect for any new mom! They have everything from a cardigan to jeans, receiving blanket, and hat to match his set. They even have a burp cloth! Caden has worn the set a few times now and I love it! Even though it is a two piece set, it's very easy to put on due to the two snaps in the front of the shirt. (I HATE when shirt have snaps in the back. CBug really does not like to be flipped back and forth just so that I can put his shirt on!) The outfit is very well made and still looks brand new after a few washings! (I also HATE when outfits fade with the first wash... making it look like you've had the outfit FOREVER.)
(Look how cute the shirt looks with his Snap-Ez Eco!)
(Don't forget The Fluff Butt Event begins September 6th! EK!)

I have really enjoyed working with Suzanne and The Boy's Store. She's sooo sweet and extremely helpful. She really cares about her customers!

She's also extremely GENEROUS! She has donated the same set that we have received in a size 12 month for giveaway, along with a $25 gift code!

I've never seen The Boy Store before but I'm loving it! I can't believe their prices.

My little sister is having a boy this year and I can't wait to be able to bless her with all the baby boy stuff I can get my hands on.

I'm loving the White Polo, Vest and Pant Set by Minibasix. It's perfect. Most definitely what I would get with the code.
