When I was given the chance to participate in this amazing tour again this year, I jumped at it. I had such a good time last year with my little guy and I knew I could do something epic again this year.
Last year my motivation was a little different, he was a newborn, he was expected to have a closet full of greens and blues and browns. And while that is fine and well, its nice to have some variety. There’s no reason little (or big) boys shouldn’t wear whatever they want, pink, purple, orange, yellow, red, blue… none of these colors mean anything about WHO they are. Pink makes a boy no less of a boy and while there will always be someone to say otherwise, I want my boy to grow up knowing it doesn’t make a difference.
(Hope you don’t mind, i’m sneaking in a flash back… )
Now that he’s a year older, my opinion is not only on what he wears but what he plays with. He has an older sister with a million dolls… so YES he’s going to play with them. He LOVES them, he carries them around, pushes a baby in the stroller and has a great time doing it. Why shouldn’t he? Dolls aren’t just for girls, just like pink isn’t either.
I had the opportunity to test this SWEET pattern from Terra’s Treasures, the Elevation Hoodie (coming this week!!) and I just knew it had to be what I featured today. When I bought these cute little raccoons I thought they would be red, imagine my surprise to open a package of pink, but hey, even better right?!?! I got those from Jumping June Textiles, while i’m fairly certain they are sold out, you should check out the other amazing Euro prints she carries.
He relunctanly gave up his baby when I suggested that there might be pockets on his hoodie. He’s just learning why pockets are so awesome and how much stuff he can sneak into one. Gosh when did he get so big???
I recently made these pink dragon Max Joggers from Max & Meena and thought they would be perfect to share today too. You can find the pink Znok dragons at Halla Fabric, if you hurry I think they are still in stock!! They pair nicely with his new Wild and Free shirt my friend Julie sent him. I’d say it suits him to a TEE! HAHA!! They are available at her shop Chestnut Street Duds if your interested.
He’s letting me know its too cold to stay out any longer so off we go… the baby back in arms to keep him happy on the walk back.
