The summer cold and off the shoulder trend has transitioned to our cozy winter sweaters with cut out details.  The cut out shoulders, back detailing, or front lacing are cute but still covered up and classy.  With all of the Black Friday and now Cyber Monday deals happening all over the web, now is the time to snag some for gifts and, of course, a few for yourself!

This cross back style is my favorite sweater currently in my closet.  The color worked perfectly for our black and white family Thanksgiving photo session.  It even survived our 8 hour road trip without wrinkling packed away in a suitcase. Bonus!

These white jeans were a great find for the summer, so I decided to pair them with a sweater to transition to the colder months.  I am seeing others wear their white jeans with bulky sweaters or layered with long cardigans.  Safety in numbers, so I thought I would give the look a try too.  My jeans came from the Buckle and are sold out.  I’m actually wishing I had a pair with the distressed knees like some of the options below.  The Rag & Bone jeans were $195 and are on sale for under $59 in limited sizes!  Tempted.

Mommy and Me Monday: Toddler Outfit

While playing outside this morning, I had the idea of a Mommy and Me Monday post.  This is something I hope to continue in the future.  Mostly because I have spent time looking for similar posts in search of toddler boy outfit ideas for my little guy.  We all know that girl’s clothes offer way cuter options and it leaves the boy moms in the dust.  With my youngest son, I have fallen in love with the options at Target.  The clothes are stylish, but still practical for a climbing, bike riding, dirt playing little boy.

Some of my favorite brands for little boys include Osh Kosh (which Target carries), Gymboree, Crazy 8, Nike, and more recently Cat and Jack for Target.  They all carry toddler outfit sizes.  All of these brands are cute and boy tested for durability.  Notice I mentioned that I had this post idea in the morning when these photos were taken… he was covered in Cheez-Its and dirt by afternoon.

Did you see that cool bike?  This Strider balance bike was a gift from Santa when B was 1-1/2.  He’s now almost 3-1/2 and my hubby and I have to jog to keep up during our evening walks! It is really amazing to see how well our little guy can ride his bike! He’s fast, he can balance, turn, and stop – all of this without pedals. This bike transitions toddler from a balance bike to a regular bike without training wheels.  Pretty awesome and our adventurous, wild boy loves it!  Any moms with older kiddos have any input about the transition?

I would love to hear from other moms with toddler boys.  Do you struggle to find cute outfits for your little boy that also go with the flow of the adventure filled days?  Have you found a brand you love?  I want to hear about it!
