We interrupt this Thanksgiving
planning for a monogram alert

Because some things are just that important. So among the avalanche of catalogs for stuff I have never and will never order came one I had never before received: Kelly's Kids. They are originally one of those home party companies where you host a party, shake down all your friends, and benefit from their purchases. You know, the Tupperware thing. But now they have a catalog and website . . . with tons of cute monogrammed children's clothes.

Some of it is admittedly a little too traditional for me. I mean, really—would you send a boy out the door in this?

You might as well pin a sign on the little guy "Kick my ass and push me down in a mud puddle."

But some of it looks like Sophie's style. She thoughtfully circled this top, which I think might be perfect for a Christmas card picture. It would work with jeans, black leggings, or her red corduroy pants.Holiday red: check. Toile: check. Monogram: check.

Here's the question: Which headband? (You can get these monogrammed too, but then I couldn't borrow it.)



Toile. An obvious choice, but too matchy matchy?
Red corduroy. The practical choice: It would go with the most.
Red houndstooth. I'm kind of liking this one.

What do you think?

Ooh, yes - me likey the houndstooth. Certainly the plain red is the best "match," but the check pattern is more unexpected and will look cute with a red top and jeans, etc.

Definitely the houndstooth!

Another vote for the houndstooth!

Well, at our house we solve those problems by getting one of each.

Adorable. I used to buy Kelly's Kids by the boatload when the kids were small.

My vote is for the solid. Looks like I am bucking the trend!

I personally love the houndstooth!

Yes, that little boy outfit screams "KMA"...I grew up in the south, live in the south, and personally love a cute monogrammed jonjon. BUT I draw the line once they can stand on their own two feet! They shouldn't make those outfits in anything bigger than an 18 month outfit!

The checked one!!! It would look really cute with anything red or white. Acctually u should just get both the plain and the checked, but the other one is cute 2. I like them all!!

I like the red corduroy best... but then I might have it monogrammed in white, which would ruin it for borrowing.

The houndstooth one!!

I vote for the solid one.

It's solid. (70s hipster colloquialism)

Houndstooth, for sure.
