Purple and Pink – Calling All Kids

Today I’m bringing home a post that was a part of Alida Makes‘ Calling All Kids series. If you didn’t see it the first time around, be sure you pop over to check out all the posts – Alida challenged us all to rethink our kids’ wardrobes and not let gender define how they dress. It was a really cool series to be a part of!

When you ask my five-year-old what his favorite colors are, he will tell you “blue, red, purple, and pink.” I love that he doesn’t think that purple and pink are colors just for girls.

But we also play with baby dolls and cook together… so who says boys can’t wear pink?DSC_0929A little blue steel…DSC_0908Kids are so much more confident when they wear what they love.DSC_0888

And while he’s already outgrown the shirt since I originally posted this [and the pants aren’t far behind!], the pants are still a particular favorite.

Do your kids wear anything that’s a little out of the box? I’d love to hear about it!
