before instagram

Sometimes, finding unique + affordable boys’ clothing is difficult [at least for me, brick + mortar shopping in Iowa tends to be a bit limited]. Enter social media + online shopping. Some new-to-me-shops that I adore came to my attention via instagram, perhaps I’m just late to the party, but I wanted to share four of my finds [all of the items we own from these shops, to-date, were purchased via instagram which allows for a pretty great bargain, but you can also find items on sale via the direct sites]:

We have a tee and a hooded sweater from peek. Both are outstanding quality.

We purchased a raglan tee via instagram, saving it for back-to-school, so I cannot specifically speak to the quality. Prices are reasonable + clothes are cute :: win.

We have two pair of their skinny-fit jeans. Fantastic quality + super handsome. My boys have slender legs and bitty waists, and the jeans fit well.

On my wish list:

We have the “LETS BLAME THE SUGAR” tee. Is it okay that the improper grammar bothers me? [ahem: “LET’S”] However, so cute. This tee is also the softest tee in the boys’s closet. I’m sure I will hang dry because of the material, which is kinda a pain. Because #allthelaundry #itneverends.
