Three boys, one dog, one chinchilla…Sometimes, you just have to STOP…and Count To Ten.

Although snow is in the forecast for this week…I KNOW that Spring is right around the corner.  With that in mind, it was time to do a little shopping for my little guy.  With my VERY limited free time, I usually shop online.  Boy was I surprised when I hopped over to Hartstrings and saw that they had a new look (I’m not sure how long it’s been since I’ve been to their website!)


I LOVED the tabs at the top of the website.  You’re able to quickly find the boys, girls, baby, or sale items.  Putting the clothes in collection pieces is SO nice (for the matching challenged of us out there).  It also helps you save money, by buying clothes in the same collection…you’re able to mix and match the pieces and make multiple outfits out of only a few pieces.  I REALLY loved the “Sale” tab.  There were just SO many different collections…narrowing my options down was extremely hard.

I just couldn’t make up my mind on which collection I wanted to choose from.  I added and deleted items in my cart SO many times!  (it’s a little TOO easy to shop on this site!)  Make sure you sign up for their email newsletters and you’ll get a coupon code for 10% off your order (and you’ll always know about new products and upcoming sales).

Well…can you guess what I decided to purchase??

It all started with a tag.  (do you see a hint underneath??)

First, I picked out these blue and white seersucker shorts and I paired it with a white polo shirt.  Throw in a little “surfer” hair do…and you have ONE cute kiddo!  I chose the shorts because I can pair it with different shirts for multiple looks.   (OH…and can I just say that the shorts had the adjustable waistband. THANK goodness…my little man has the tiniest waist!)

Take those same shorts…and pair it with a white dress shirt and that adorable silk tie with white polka dots….

I chose those shorts and the cute tie for Easter…but, also to wear with various shirts so that he’s ready when the weather warms up.

I’d also like to add that these look like GREAT work clothes!  (he’s getting ready to take a 5pm conference call)  Gosh…there was also a seersucker jacket that went with the shorts…I might just have to log back in and shop some more! (That really would have looked like a work outfit!)

Navigating the Hartstrings website was so very easy.  It was easy to see all the options available in the sizes that I needed.  Moving around items in my shopping cart was a simple click.  I was immediately emailed my 10% promo code and was able to use it for this purchase.  A few days after placing my order, I actually called the customer service desk, and they were able to confirm a delivery date and email me the tracking information.  I LOVE shopping on the internet…and I LOVE shopping for quality products from stores with great customer service.    I’ll be back soon Hartstrings…those plaid cargo shorts are still calling my name!
