Southern Style in Yankee-Land

I know people up here who do it, but having a Yankee husband I’ve been put on notice not to dress our boys up in fancy Southern clothing. You know what I’m talking about? Those darling seersucker John-Johns beautifully hand-smocked. {sigh} Sometimes I can get away with it for holidays, but unlike my Southern momma friends I don’t dare dress my boys up in it for playdates or school. However, I can’t bear to make them wear the cheesy tees I see in so many chain stores. Instead I cheat and buy inexpensive solid shirts from places like Old Navy and have them monogrammed. Call me what you will, but it gives me my Dixie fix without causing a fuss.

Once a year, though, I get my GRITS on and shop to my wallet’s content at the Kelly’s Kids trunk show. This year’s line of clothing is a chic flashback to a couple of years ago when I snapped up several outfits and I’m thrilled to be able to replenish what B has grown out of and passed down to his brothers. Truth be told there is a madras look I’m dying to dress the boys in. Even though they have matching adult styles, that dog won’t hunt here. We’re only going kid-friendly and even then I have to be careful what I get for B since he’s beginning to show some interest in what he wears these days. Goodness gracious!
