Pink for girls, blue for boys?

I don´t have anything against dressing girls in pink and boys in blue, the problem is when there is nothing else in offer,  which is not unusual. Also oftentimes girls’ clothes have princessy ribbons or garish glitter and there is some motored vehicle or an aggressive looking comic character in the little boy’s t-shirt. And don´t get me started on this Hello Kitty and Bob Sponge mania, arrrgh…

OK, rant over now. I thought it would be fun to create some baby and kid looks without limiting to the pink/blue divide, first one below is for baby girls, I hope they are of your liking:

From left to right, top to botton:

Zara Kids tulle skirt / Topshop mini drum dress / Zara Kids jeans

Gap Kids striped dress / Gap Kids leggings / H&M navy polka dot leggings

Gap Kids ballet flats / Gap Kids corduroy dress / Vertbaudet coat

Rucksacks for the little ones too!

Yes, they need to carry a lot of important stuff too: the basketball, their favorite doll, crayons and paper, water bottle, some leaves picked up last week …

Here is some of the cutest rucksacks for the kids:

Beatrix New York Blue Whale Rucksack / Beatrix New York Orange Monkey Rucksack

Moulin Roty Mouse rucksack / Skip-Hop Zoo-Let Luggage Owl

They could be very handy for packing for holiday too, don’t you think?

It’s usually a little pricy for my tight budget, but sales can be great to stock up with clothing they can wear all year round (or to pick up cute things for next summer).

Here is a small selection of some lovely items:
