A Week of Outfits: Toby

For his entire life (6 3/4 years and counting), Toby has been a fashion maven. He loves mixing prints — “I know my style, Mama,” he often tells me — and he even asked for a sports jacket for his fourth birthday. So, when Toby overheard that we did a series called “Week of Outfits” on the site, he begged to do one of his own. Without further ado, here are five ensembles that Toby wore in a week…

A Week of Outfits: Toby

T-shirt: Winter Water Factory. Button-down: American Apparel, similar. Blazer: J. Crew. Leggings: Polarn O. Pyret.

“We got these pants because we forgot pants at my swimming class. I like these leggings; they have leaves from a tree. It’s cool to wear different patterns. I have a new haircut. I got Simon as a haircut present. I’ve been practicing.”

Sweatshirt: Young One Apparel. Blazer: J. Crew. Pants: Rockets of Awesome. Backpack: State Bags.

“I like blazers because it’s like a grownup. I like wearing layers. I know my style — I just know. Sometimes I pick out clothes for Anton ’cause it’s nice. I picked out his shirt this morning.”

Power Rangers costume: Disguise.

“This costume is Tyler, the red Dino Charge Power Ranger. I wore this on Halloween, and I wear it on weekends. I’m not allowed to wear it to school, only when it’s Costume Day or something. I wore it on a date last night. She thought, cool.”

“I like the cars on this shirt. Cars are awesome because they are cool. I know Volkswagen, Nissan, Toyota, Jeep, Hundai, Honda, Chrysler, Ford and GMC. I wore these kinds of pants since I was a baby.”

T-shirt: Winter Water Factory. Blazer: Kitestrings. Leggings: American Apparel. Scarf: Knit by great-grandmother.

“I like this blazer because it looks awesome. The buttons are gold, and gold is my favorite color. I wore the blazer in Aunt Lesley’s wedding. Leggings feel better than pants. We’re having Nutella toast for breakfast this morning. I’ve never had Nutella. Only once. For my birthday.”

Thank you so much, Tobes!!!! I love you!
