I like all three of these color sets! What do you think for 3 year old (how old Ds will be in winter)?

I like this set b/c it is different:

This set b/c they are my favorite colors:

This b/c they are vibrant and we could possibly make the reds "Christmas-y" with other items:

I like them in this order:

#2 I like this a LOT! I LOVE those colors too.
#3 You're right about the red being holiday-ish but he could wear it all winter.
#1 The green is a little too olive for my tastes.

Is that what you were looking for? :)

My vote is for the French Blue/Water Blue set. I'm ordering the shirt and pants for Tom. We have a Hanna romper in French Blue/Water Blue and I really love the color combination. (I'm also ordering the zipper in the same colors since I love it so much.)

Have fun and let us know which set you decide to get!

I like #1 the best.

My fav is #1, then #3. I like #2 the least. I have a feeling preferences probably depend on our coloring. We are pretty much fall and winter colors here.

Do you mean skin coloring? I've never been able to figure out what colors look good on me! I think Ds looks good in blues like the water blue, and others have told me so. We're both very fair. I tend to wear dark colors...you know, for that magical slimming effect. LOL!

Yes, that's what I mean. Like DH looks best in winter colors... dark green, dark blue, black, white, grey. I & the kids do great in fall colors, like the first set. I find myself wearing pale yellows oranges, sage greens, etc. I did dark colors for a while, esp when I was working for Michael's, but I've come to not really like the dark colors on me. I'm just not that winter, and they were getting me a bit depressed. So if your DS looks great in that lighter bright blue, which was my turnoff here, then get that one! He must be more of a spring person. I've also found that, for me, the cut of the outfit helps as much as the color in slimming me down.

Thanks! I still haven't figured out "my" colors. LOL.

Of course I always think he looks cute, but the times I've received compliments, from non-family members, were in clear greens and clear blues. I think that is what they are called.

Anyway...Thanks! I am still torn though...Between the blues & the red/orange.

ETA, just to demonstrate how bad I am at dressing for coloring, I was putting my jaundiced newborn in yellow outfits b/c I like the outfit. Doh! Yes, it made him look MUCH more yellow I later noticed in photos.

Hubby likes the red/orange b/c he says Ds has so many blue clothes already (true).

What do you think of:

(as opposed to red like the sweatshirt?)

With http://www.hannaandersson.com/images/s7Style/54032_K09.jpg of course.

I like the darker red for both top and bottom, personally.

Thanks...I just couldn't push the 'checkout' button last night with the total so high so I decided that since I like so many combos of this "outfit" I will try to wait for a sale...I was good and only bought deep sale stuff from last year and baby gifts!

I admire your self control. LOL! I am ordering the french blue/water blue striped tee but have decided not to get the french blue sweatpants. I figured the tee will look just fine with a pair of jeans. I just can't bring myself to pay $22.40 plus shipping for a pair of sweats.
