Buying clothes for boys is hard, and because I'm pretty picky when it come to dressing Micha, it's even harder.
Step in to any given store and there are always rows and rows of pretty little girls clothing
and then one rack for the boys.
The usual choices are: cars, characters, or 'cool' slogans.
Yeah, that's just not my thing.
There are very few prints of cars that I like,
I don't feel like sponsoring Disney or Pixar,
and my boy doesn't need a shirt to tell him he's 'mommy's little heart breaker'
or whatever other cheesy* (and sometimes misspelled) phrase a Chinese factory prints on a shirt.
(* in my humble opinion, if it is your thing, I say 'go for it')

Luckily there are a few stores that actually understand that boys need cute clothes too.
These are some of my favorite outfits for Micha, you'll notice they have a theme :)
|some Italian brand, second hand|
|H&M sailor suit|
|Zara Kids romper|
|Matching sweaters, both H&M|
|Breton stripe sweater, girls section H&M|
|the only slogan shirt M has, a cute play on the well known posters|
|Preppy little lad, all H&M|
|Little man, shirt: HEMA|
Did you figure out what the theme was? haha..
I'm Maria and I have a stripe addiction.
So while it is a bit more difficult to find cute clothing for boys, it is possible
and I think I've done a pretty good job so far.
