We don’t really buy a ton of clothing when it’s time to head back to school. We focus most of our shopping efforts in two main areas: shoes and possibly shorts. Especially for Dude 1. He’s the one that has no one older than him to gift him clothing and since he is in the growing-while-sleeping-years, he sometimes wakes up longer than he was when
Because seriously, SHARK SHIRTS! With shark shorts to match of course! For all of those up and coming Sharknado loving Dudes in the world. He’s already picked out his entire first day of school outfit… because there are few things cooler than sharks in this house. In fact, The Dudes have spent major portions of this summer watching past episodes from Shark Week on Netflix.
Last week the school supply lists came out. TELL ME RIGHT NOW WHY THEY NEED 12 GLUE STICKS?! How is summer already basically over? I’m all different shades of sad because we didn’t get to do many of the things I planned for us this summer (multiple bouts of strep throat followed by throat surgery sorta put a kink in our schedule). But, on the
Today isn’t about a particular brand, but a style trend The Dudes are digging: the tank top. Brought back to life in our house by Dude 3 who simply does not believe in sleeves or pants in the summer, all three of my guys have been rocking the tanks this summer season. Of course only Dude 3 agreed to be photographed for demonstration purposes… H&M
Remember last summer? When Dude #3 did this whole model-shirts-that-are-super-cool-and-maybe-give-some-away-every-Tuesday-for-like-ever thing? No? It’s cool. Actually, it’s probably better if you don’t, because then what’s about to happen right here will seem fresh and new and funky and cool. Re-Introducing T-Shirt Tuesdays! Where Dude #3 will model shirts that ar super cool and maybe give some away on Tuesdays. When we feel like it. Certainly not
He wanted a vest. Fortunately I was able to convince him of the general impracticality of vest wearing for winter. Because, like, how do you keep your arms warm? Plus, he was a little iffy on if he would actually wear aforementioned vest to school and I was like, well, we don’t pay $17 for house clothing. We get that for free from your brothers.
T-shirts are a major element of The Dudes’ style. Funky t-shirts. Cool t-shirts. Hip-hop t-shirts. Athletic t-shirts. All different kinds of t-shirts. I have drawers that won’t close thanks to t-shirts. And, since Dude #3 has a knack for bringing clothing to life in a way humans tend to appreciate he and I are collaborating on this new thing: T-Shirt Tuesdays… Expect to see his
I don’t have any children in toddler sized shoes anymore. My 11 and a half year old wears a 5.5 (he has small feet for his age), my 8 year old wears a 4.5 (he has big feet for his age), and my 5 year old baby wears a size 1 (he has humongous feet for his age). We should probably start making them use
