I don't know why it's so difficult for stores to realise that boys deserve beautiful clothing too. My local H&M store for example has lovely offerings in the baby boys section, but once they pass the age of two the selection available for boys is somewhat lacking - and it's also tiny compared to the girls section. When Beau was born I wanted to dress him in baby blues, as I had done with his brother before him, but there were only two stores offering baby blue outfits and only about three in total too, these were Next and Tesco. Next even had a black and white baby boy range and black is a colour I would personally never dress a baby in - they have their whole lives to wear dark colours, why not dress them in something a bit more jovial and bright when they're babies being my way of thinking.
So when I had Tyler Lee I went in search of clothing that didn't box itself in to what clothing stores seem to think boys are all about - dinosaurs, jungle animals and cars just to name a few of the sterotypical things associated with boys and plastered all over clothing available for them.
I began buying vintage clothes, loving their uniqueness, sweet designs and the range of colours they were available in. I also began buying handmade clothes from Etsy and boutique shops I found on Instagram. Now I have my second boy and the search for lovely clothes for him continues.
I always get complimented on how I dress my boys and it makes me so happy to hear people like their clothes. I often get asked where their clothes are from so I thought I'd start a series on here all about 'What Beau Wears'.
I'll be sharing more of Beau's beautiful clothes in future posts - I'm not sure if I'll make this a weekly or bi-weekly feature but there'll be lots of baby and boys fashion featured on the blog in the coming weeks and months.
