fashion faux pas?

fashion faux pas?My boy is certainly developing his own style. One of his recent ensembles consisted of his prized Diego singlet (underwear) his much loved guitar pants worn back to front (why have the pretty pattern at the back where it can’t be seen?) and his lamb slippers (comfort rules supreme).

I’ve adopted the attitude that he can wear what ever he chooses from his wardrobe. I do sometimes wonder though how will he feel about this in fifteen years time?

  1. Your boy looks like he hasn’t a care in the world, he thinks he looks good and he feels comfy and he doesn’t yet understand the concept of a 21st photo board!

    I try to be happy to let Little Guy choose, he has pretty good taste! But the other day we had a fight (he won) about wearing the shorts Grandma made him in public; they are made from the cut off bottoms of a pair of her pants in hot pink and teal checks with a pocket on the front. I think they would make fine pyjamas but the boy thinks they are fine and dandy (maybe a little too dandy!) for wearing all day every day. Don’t get me wrong I love handmade stuff and I’m all for up cycling; these shorts are just very “special”. I am currently hiding them at the bottom of the laundry pile. – Bad Mumma stifling his fashion sense!

  3. LOL! That is hilarious and so En. I'm so glad he likes his pants though and of course he is right, it is more fun wearing the pocket on the front, what was I thinking putting it on the back, that is so 2009 ;)

  4. I think it is wonderful. Great post! I try to let Wednesday wear what she likes but she gets overwhelmed with all the possibilities and really, she would rather strut around in the buff!

  5. Gorgeous! At times I've thought about making my girls a badge that says "I dressed myself today!"

  7. Ah, the benefits of being a kid. The question is, at what point do we as parents start taking over and not letting them wear what they want? I don't like this tween thing at all - but that's somehting I'm not going to worry for several years yet. (Hm, I'm been watching too many TV dramas with kids vs. parents recently)

  8. What a perfectly gorgeous little man. W would be fighting him for the Diego t-shirt, although I'm just as certain he'd wear Dora, the Wiggles or Nigella Lawson (?!?!) on there as eagerly.

    You made those pants right? I really love them.

    I think my kids would choose to wear NO CLOTHES if they indicated a desire to choose at all. They're totally happy with the random-grab-from-drawer technique that Justin and I execute most mornings. Therefore, my boys look far far worse ON A DAILY BASIS than does spunky Master E!
