I recently had 3 family events to attend and of course I started thinking about what Julian was going to wear. Do I buy him 3 different outfits just to make sure that people don’t see him wearing the same thing? Obviously, cost-wise it isn’t the best option. I wasn’t going to spend money on 3 different suits that he would probably use just once or twice. So I started thinking, do men buy different suits for each event? I mean if they were Brad Pitt and money wasn’t an issue, then yes for sure they would. However, our family works on a budget. So I realized then that all I had to do was change the accessories, shirt and shoes to an existing suit and that would make a whole new outfit.
So, todays blog post is about how I dressed my son for 3 events using the same suit. I changed the shirt, bow tie and suspenders for all 3 events and the shoes only once. The suit I purchased from Zara (which now comes in 2 colours, navy and grey), 2 shirts are from Jacadi (blue and white) and the other dress shirt was a gift, so I am not sure where it is from (sorry). The shoes are from United Colors of Benetton and Jacadi. The accessories, “oh I love accessories”, are from my favourite company Liv and Lily. It’s the only place I go to for Julian’s bow ties, suspenders (and hair bands for my lovely niece).
