As I was watching Real Housewives of New Jersey 2 episodes ago, I noticed something that both disturbed and thrilled me. My son had three of the outfits that the RHONJ kids were wearing. Not one, but three — In one episode. And then I thought about how the first day I took him to storytime and the teacher called him “Jersey Shore Baby” soley because of his Adidas tracksuit — And the fact that he fist bumps at the level of most 5-year-olds at only 18 months. And how people in my conservative, Midwestern Chicago neighborhood often give me the look when he rolls up in his skull print beanie, True Religion Jeans and his faux hawk is revealed (I love the look btw)…
So, while I don’t delve into kid territory very often due to my “Mommy-Blog-A-Phobia”, I felt this was a sign. So if you want your son to have Jersey Style here are a few key pieces to add to his wardrobe, and how to do it like I do – Without breaking the bank and before he’s old enough to know the boy next door isn’t wearing rhinestones.

More Jersey-Worthy Styles Found in My Son’s Closet
*I got my kiddo’s pair on EBAY used for $35 and he’s been wearing his 12-18mth pair for almost a year. They are cut very long & narrow.
*Sign up for emails from ShoeBuy.com and you’ll get $10 off coupons etc. Also some available on EBay. I also bought a size too big so they’d last longer*
And now that I’ve done Part I, I have to follow up with Part II to share all the must-have items I found while searching for the ones my son already has.
