If you have a son, you already know what I’m about to say is true. Cool / cute boy clothes are WAY more difficult to find than girl clothes. It’s just a fact.
When I found out we were having a boy (back in 2018), I couldn’t have been more excited. Boys are way more my speed than girls, to be honest.?But what I quickly learned about having a boy was that I was going to have to search MUCH harder than I thought to find cute / cool baby clothes for boys.
Cute girls clothes are a dime a dozen…you can find those anywhere it seems…even Target has some cute baby girl stuff. But boys stuff – it’s just not easy to find….at least for the style of clothing that I like. I don’t generally like kid’s clothing that has illustrations on it, but especially don’t love the typical trucks, cars, and dino motifs that seem to be on nearly every mainstream boy item around.
BUT, good news! Once I started finding brands and shops that carried things I was drawn to, I realized that nearly every single thing I like also happens to be gender neutral. Which honestly made me like them even more, for many reasons really. But one of the obvious ones is that if we have more kids and end up having any girls, they’ll still be able to reuse literally anything that our son has worn.
So, I started searching online and on trips when we would go somewhere new (pre-Covid obviously) and eventually put together a pretty big list of brands and shops with awesome gender neutral baby clothes. I mentioned this one day on my stories and got soooo many DMs from moms asking where I shop. So today I’m sharing the BIG list! Here’s my list of cool, gender neutral baby clothes –?broken down into shops AND specific brands to make it easy.
This post is long overdue, considering we actually moved a month ago. But for anyone that doesn’t follow along on Instagram and maybe didn’t know… Surprise, we moved to California last month!
And oh yeah, when we arrived, our place was (and still is) partially under construction. It’s been a pretty wild ride, so far. So click through if you want to see the before photos of our new place, why we moved, and everything else.
Firstly, I want to be clear in stating that Black lives matter and what has happened and continues to happen in this country to Black people is absolutely unacceptable, to put it mildly.
I personally have so much work to do, to support the Black community in the way they deserve to be supported and in educating myself in anti-racism. But I hope this list is helpful to anyone who wants to support Black people with their dollars right now (and years from now).
And after that, if you have the financial ability to make any purchases, here are some amazing black owned businesses you can support simply by buying something from them. *I shared these shops on Instagram?here?as well, if it’s easier to click over to IG handles instead.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it’s a place to start. If you have any suggestions for additional brands / companies to include, please feel free to comment on this post or email me directly.Read More →
It’s fabric paper?mache! Use up those leftover fabric scraps for cute housewares that are also totally functional.
On a day that I just really needed a creative project, I made a handful of fabric bowls with just a couple of supplies and some leftover fabric scraps. And?loved how they turned out, so I shared them on Instagram and then you loved how they turned out too. So, I turned it into a blog post and here we are!
What I love most about these DIY fabric bowls is that they’re so easy to make, but also look pretty unique, if I do say so myself.
When you look at them, they seem like they’d be soft to the touch (especially the ones with visible fabric layers. But they’re actually hard to the touch and function great at bowls for office supplies, jewelry, makeup, etc. Basically anything that’s not food-related is fair game with these.
So, today I’m sharing the tutorial for DIY fabric paper mache bowls.
Eco friendly projects to celebrate Earth Day and beyond.
It’s Earth Day! So, today I wanted to share a handful of eco friendly projects that will help you reduce waste and make a small (but meaningful) impact overtime.
The best part about these DIY ideas though is that they all use items that you probably already have in your home. So, you (most likely) won’t have to buy a single thing to remake one of these eco friendly ideas.
Another quick sewing project, that’s also eco-friendly! Make a cute DIY utensil wrap in under an hour!
While it’s true that none of us are exactly ‘on the go’ these days, we will be one day…hopefully soon. So, I wanted to share another easy sewing project that can be completed in under an hour. A fabric scraps utensil wrap!
It’s eco-friendly, utilizing scrap fabrics and other remnants for the entire project. And will help you eliminate certain single-use plastics, like plastic silverware, straws, etc in favor of reusables that are tucked into it’s pockets. You can keep one in your car or in your purse, so you always have it with you.
