Do you know Natalie Holbrook? If you don't, you should. Head on over to her blog and prepare to be inspired. That girl's writing will bring you to tears. And her little boy, Henry (better known as Huck), will kill you with cuteness. And since he always looks like he just stepped out of a magazine, I'm pretty sure this momma knows what she's doing. Trust her.  

Tell us a little about Huck!
Huck is the world's biggest sweetheart. He loves to please his mama and he is very sociable. He's really easy to hang out with, and he's got a funny little sense of humor already. He's a total dude.

How would you describe his personal style and how does his style reflect his personality? 
Huck looks really good in minimal, classic, European style androgynous clothes. He has such a sweet personality and such a cherubic, pretty face, so I avoid sporty clothes for him at all costs. It just looks cartoonish on him. He's too cool for that ;). The colors we've come up agains that don't work for him are pastel blues and burnt orange. That's, like, the entire boys section right there. ;)

What is Huck's go-to outfit?
I love Huck in leggings, a tee shirt, and a cardigan. I want him as snuggly as I can get him, and these pieces are easy to swap out if something gets dirty, and lightweight enough that you can pack a change of clothes with you at all times in case you need them (boys get messy so fast!).

Where is your favorite place to shop for him? 
I've had really good luck with American Apparel and Zara Kids.

And what is your philosophy when buying pieces for him?
I buy pieces that are classics, mostly neutral, non gender-specific colors, so his whole wardrobe is mix-and-matchable and most anything he wears now could theoretically be passed down to a someday little sister or brother. I'm not opposed to spending a little more on something if I know I'll get a lot of use out of it. That said, I buy a ton of white onesies every season and always plan to throw them out in a few months. Those suckers get stained and abused so bad...

What would you say are the three must have pieces for little boys?
A pair of moccasins, a striped top, and a cardigan. Oh! And skinny jeans. We wear at least one if not all four of these things every day.

What pieces are you always willing to splurge on?
Sweaters. Especially cardigans or zip up hoodies. We wear those like crazy.

And what is the one fashion tip you would give to mother with boys?
We don't need to beat it over everyone's heads that our boys are "boys." Clothes don't need to have trucks or dinosaurs or footballs on them. Think outside the boy stereotypes!

Genius, right?! So simple and perfect, you can easily recreate Huck's wardrobe for your little one. Here are a few tips to help you snag his look and links to the pieces featured above.

Just like Natalie said, when you fill your little one's wardrobe with classic pieces in neutral colors, it's easy to mix and match the pieces. Find what pieces, colors, and styles look good on your little one and wear the heck out of them!

  2. I couldn't agree more with the statement: "We don't need to beat it over everyone's heads that our boys are "boys." Clothes don't need to have trucks or dinosaurs or footballs on them." Right? I totally support dressing your children the way you'd want to be dressed. Go Natalie!
