November Monkey Fashion.

I see my future a little bit clearer as Elijah gets more and more opinionated about his clothes…this fun dressing my little man in adorable outfits is not going to last.  This week RJ put him in a Lightning McQueen tee that Eli picked out, and then he had a change of heart and was asking for the Batman tee that RJ had originally selected for him.

Dressing in layers is always what I do in the winter months so I am doing the same for the little man.


Thanksgiving Day Attire.

We were going for a casual, cool vibe here.

blazer and button up: little maven by Tori Spelling.  I saw these walking through jcpenney one day and waited for a good sale.  The shirt has a fox print on it, and the buttons on the blazer and the fox pocket square put me over the edge.  We had to have it.

skinny jeans: babyGap (of course.)

brown high tops: babyGap.  These have an inside zipper so they don’t have to be laced up every time.  Genius.  Easiest high tops to get on a squirmy 21 month old.


Church Clothes.

I feel like he wears the same 4 or 5 pairs of pants all the time.  But they fit and I like them.  So yellow skinnies are a staple until he grows out of them.  I saw some red skinnies at baby Gap that I am sale-stalking.

grey v-neck sweater: The Children’s Place.  I often find some great “dress” clothes for Eli there.  They have good sale prices and always have a coupon out.

navy polo: Ralph Lauren.  I found this at a mom to mom sale this past fall.  The lady had 4 different sized polos and I should’ve bought them all.  I think I paid $2.00 for it and it’s in great shape.

skinnies: baby Gap.

brown high-tops: baby Gap.


Playdate Wear.

And this playdate was clearly before his big haircut.  I look at pictures of him with his long hair daily and get a tiny bit sad that its gone…

tee: zulily.  If you don’t recognize the “Center for Kids Who Can’t Read Good…” then you should probably do yourself a favor and watch Zoolander.  Right now.  I find it hard to resist the clever children’s tees that they often have on zulily.  So stinking cute.

long sleeve tee: Carters.

grey jeans: Levis, 511 skinny.

socks: Carters.


More Church Clothes.

Eli is not so good at the looking-at-the-camera-and-smiling-pose.  So I try to sneak pictures of him playing, like the one above where he is hiding in the curtains.

orange button-up: Carters.  Doesn’t my boy look good in orange?

skinny jeans: baby Gap.  This is my favorite pair that he owns right now.  I get overly excited if they don’t get visibly dirty during the day, and then he is able to wear them a second day.

high tops with the cool orange laces: baby Gap.  I think he has worn these every day since I bought them two weeks ago.

I'm Jessica. I am a wife and a mama. My husband, Rj, is a youth pastor who just began seminary this fall. Our baby boy, Elijah, is almost two and he is the coolest thing I have ever made. In February we will be adding a baby girl monkey to our family. I love doing crafts, shopping for good deals, vacations in Disney World, naps, and playing with my monkey. I have more fun picking out clothes for Eli than I should admit. I wish I spent more time reading good books. And I really miss sleeping for more than 4 hours at a time, but I am told this will happen day.
