toddler jeans

when i first found out that simms was a boy, i cried. even though i wanted a baby so badly and had multiple miscarriages…my heart was set on a girl. it took a couple weeks but then i started coming around to the idea of having a boy. it was never about me not liking boy activities, because, actually, i really do. i LOVE being outside, getting dirty, fishing, camping, hiking, and exploring. it was about the clothes. i always pictured myself passing all my clothes and accessories down to a little girl. i was heartbroken that i wouldn't get to dress my baby boys in cute clothes, because i was convinced there weren't any. BOY was i wrong. i actually wouldn't change having three boys for anything now. God definitely knew what i needed.

in my humble opinion, i think the fit of boy jeans are where SO many fail. i'm not talking about consumers, i am talking about designers. boys jeans are almost always baggy, way too big, and often even have cargo pockets (GAG!!!!) so when i first had simms, i bought girl jeans (after i checked for ruffles, hearts, etc.) it drove cal crazy but he started to catch on to why i did it. they didn't make simms look feminine. they just FIT. i realize all kids are different and some people may like baggy jeans. but they aren't for me. in the past two years, more companies have started making a more fitted/skinny jeans that are technically for "boys." so i don't have to buy as many "girl" jeans…but i still do some. here's some of my favorites.

first let me show an example of jeans that claim to be "skinny" and for "boys" but aren't the way i like them. this is why i search hard for good jeans. i am not saying what brand they are because i actually really like other clothes they make. but i ordered these jeans online and was so disappointed with the fit that i haven't ever even taken the tags off.

the ole "skinny boy jeans" that aren't skinny at all.

the susie's customs jeans above are my fav. they have the best fit for my kids and they're unisex. i buy them a size down (as i do with all jeans) so that they are extra fitted. these are the same jeans that kim and kourtney kardashian buy for their kids and mayyyyyy have played a large role in my interest in them. haha. they go out of stock the minute she posts an instagram saying they're in stock. so definitely follow her on insta. 

other brands i love:
