How I shop for toddler clothes

Most of my son’s clothes are from the Goodwill. I don’t wear much vintage myself, so I’ve never really been a “dig through the racks” kind of person. But when it comes to finding clothes for my son that are uber-cheap but non-offensive to my aesthetic, I’ve developed a technique.

An ode to skinny jeans

Kayden, my step-son, seems to be following in the same footsteps as myself and his father. He’s relatively unfazed by the current wave of en vogue accoutrements for middle school boys. Skinny jeans, however, were just too powerful a force to overcome. He needed to have skinny jeans.
