Holiday Outfits that don't break the bank at #CookiesKids for #cbias

One of the hardest things to do is to dress my boys up - they honestly prefer sweats and jeans to shirt and tie, but once or twice a year I go searching for cute and affordable dress clothes for them!  This year, my search took me to
 I knew that as a leading online retailer of children's fashion, that also has 7 stores in the NYC area in Bronx, Brooklyn and Jamaica, there was a good probability that I'd find exactly what I was looking for - all without leaving my living room!

My first thought was that I'd look for a full suit for Liam... and there was a great selection of suits in Boys 4-7, but when I really thought about it and talked it over with Wayne, we decided that it would probably be best to go with something simpler and just as cute!  That's when I headed into the Dress Shirts section and found this adorable shirt set - with a tie and pocket square!  Who needs a suit coat?  So many colors to choose from too! 

I also found that they had a similar product in 1T-4T - perfect for Erik!

With waiting as long as I did,  I wasn't able to get my first choice of colors in Erik's size - 3T, so it's not as in your face "Christmas" as Liam's is... but I know to order earlier next year to make sure I can get the size I want!  You can check out more about my shop by clicking here to see my google plus album!

I had a similar situation with pants - I actually picked out different pants for Erik than I actually got, because silly me- when I placed my order I didn't check the address carefully and misspelled the street name.  I phoned the customer service line as soon as I realized my mistake and talked to a wonderful CSR who not only fixed my address, but also double checked that everything in my order was available for immediate shipment!  She found that the pants I had originally picked out for Erik were not available in the warehouse, but could be sent from another store - but there would be a delay in receiving my order.  A quick search brought up similar pants - and it meant that my order would ship out quicker - so we changed it then and there!

The boys love their new Cookies Kids outfits!  And I love that they'll stand up to a little wear and tear - just because they're dressed up, doesn't mean they won't head straight for the park:

I wasn't sure how Liam would like the belt on his pants, but he honestly wouldn't take it off for hours after the photo shoot was over... he also loves how deep the pockets are on his new dress pants!

The only thing I'd change on Erik's shirt is the length of the tie that came with it... but I know as a mom, that tie will only last long enough for pictures and it will end up in daddy's pocket with his own... 

I'm such a happy Mama - two gorgeous little boys in dress clothes they don't want to take off!  I am so glad that I discovered Cookie's Kids!  I know that they'll be my go-to shop for the boys when I'm looking for that little something more!   Cookie's Kids is celebrating 40 years in business - which means they know kids clothes and I know that you'll find what you're looking for when you visit them online or in store!
