It’s hard to know sometimes.
But it’s fun that the lines between boy and girl fashions are a bit blurred these days. Although maybe it’s always been that way. Remember those baby pics of your great grandfather where he’s wearing a dress? Or how about my great gramps in his Little Lord Fauntleroy suit? Owen would have hated that stuffy velvet.
But maybe velvet’s back in too! Today it’s okay for a boy to be bold, to wear bold colors, even pink?, skinny pants, and to just be himself. Whatever self that might be. And I love this photo (below, from the CTB Flickr group) by Mamasha because it pretty much sums up things around our house….one boy sandwiched in the middle of two girls, trying to be boyish, but loving the baby buggy, and likely filling it up with Star Wars toys so they can cruise around in a floral Millenium Falcon.
So who wears the pants in your house? And what kind of pants are they wearing?
I browsed the Celebrate the BOY Flickr group to see what you guys are making and holy cow you’ve got mad skills. Really cool stuff!
