2 Year Old Style – Rocking Dinos and a Coatigan

By Reasonstodress

I love this new series on the blog.  I love sharing my son’s outfits!  I have so much fun dressing my little man and I manage to do it on a very tight budget.  The closet in his room is already FILLED with clothes separated out by age that I buy in advance and then put away. Think my Fashion Foresight philosophy only applied to me….nope!  I use it for EVERYTHING.  Buy now – wear later is totally my moto.

This is what he wore a while back to play in the park.  It still hadn’t warmed up yet because we had a few chilly weeks, but as of this past weekend it is HOT!  So expect to see a lot of summer outfit posts (as soon as I finish posting the backlog of outfits I wanted to share!)  Ick, notice the amount of cigarettes on the floor?  We are so OBVIOUSLY in italy!

The Reason he Dressed

 

A simple day at the park!  I see a LOT of stylish moms at this park.  Actually I’m starting to think they are getting more fashionable as the weeks progress because the weather is nicer.  In the next few weeks I’ll be sharing three different moms I’ve spotted here.

 

What He Wore

 

He’s wearing a Zara coatigan!  That’s right, you heard correctly, a coatigan, it’s not quite a coat, it’s not quite a cardigan!  I’ve done a few posts about coatigans here, here and here, which you are sure to see a lot of this upcoming fall.

 

His leather boots are also from Zara and his grey jogging pants and hat are from the French brand Grain de Blé. His bandana is by the brand Funky Giraffe , I bought 5 for under $30 here.  They are an ethical, eco-friendly kids clothing company based out of the UK and EVERYONE asks me where I got them!

Sidetracked

 

I’ve been a little sidetracked lately.  The cold I thought I had turned out to be bronchitis.  I didn’t actually get any medication for it, since my Italian doctor is also a naturalist and refuses to give antibiotics unless he is forced to.  But I’m slowly getting better, it is just the longest sickness I have ever had.

 

We also decided to start potty training last week.

 

WHAT….WAS …..I…. THINKING…..

 

seriously?  What is wrong with wearing a diaper anyway?  Can’t he just wear one until he’s like 16 and then get a girlfriend and she can change it for him?  I mean I want him to be independent and I realize that this is his “sensitive period” for diaper training, but this is HARD WORK!  We are totally house bound.  If you have any advice on how to survive potty training…. or speed things up I am all ears.

 

I will not give up, I will perservere, I will make it through this trying time, even if I have already run out of clean clothes to put him in and my floor is really sticky…..

 

I have been cloth diapering for TWO YEARS, so my quality of life and free time will dramatically increase once there are no more cloth diapers to wash, hang and fold!  As he transitions out of diapers (I hope) I am working on a little series about how I cloth diapered in these two years and what I used to survive!

 

It hasn’t been easy but I have to admit this guy’s super cool character hasn’t made it that hard either.
