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.
And since blue and red are pretty prevalent in his wardrobe already, I added a bit of purple and pink in a not-so-girly way.When I gave him the clothes, he said, “Did you make these because you know purple and pink are some of my favorite colors?!” Mom win right there, my friends.There are some little hedgehogs that peek out from the pocket of the purple cords, which is just a fun detail that I love.As the mom of a bunch of boy boys who love cars and trains and superheroes and being loud and getting dirty, we don’t have a lot of pink or purple in our house. But we also play with baby dolls and cook together… so who says boys can’t wear pink?A little blue steel…Kids are so much more confident when they wear what they love.
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!
