Normally, I don't mind correcting people. I'll just say "Oh, he's 8 months old" or "His name is Felix" and that's that. However, it's Wednesday, and so far this week I have had to correct six or more people this week. Three people just today! For the first time, it's starting to annoy me! I don't want to conform to societies narrow-minded assumptions of what a child should be dressed in. If my boy wants long hair, he can have long hair. If I want to put him in pink/purple/red or whatever the hell else is deemed a "girly" colour, I will (as long as he is happy and comfortable in what he is wearing!).
I know no one makes these assumptions to upset me. I know it's not harmless. Most of the time it washes over me, but today, it's just got to me a bit. I can't be the only one who likes to dress their child slightly "differently?".
Well, this is what the boys have been rocking this week:
Leopard print leggings - H&M
Moccasins - Ulla + Viggo
'Chess' top - Katvig
Blue stripe leggings - Polarn O Pyret
Rainbow chevron legwarmers - Tiny Nippers
Hat - Asda
Waistcoat - J by Jasper Conran
Star top - Boys & Girls Shop
Leggings - H&M
Ice Cream Moccasins - Moccis
Stripy romper - GAP
Circus vest - H&M
I love Converse for Ethan (and I'm looking forward to Felix being able to wear them!) and I'm always looking for ways to make his look extra cool. We're fans of Shwings in our house - we started off with wings, then moustaches and now one pair are sporting flames! I've funked them up even further with new laces:
Right - enough ranting from me - what have your children been wearing? Link up below, comment and visit others!
