Milestone alert – the boy gets his own fashion sense!

It’s either a good thing or a bad thing, but today for the first time whilst we were shopping for new clothes, the boy told me which ones he liked! He’ll be 3 next month, so i guess this is another part of him growing up. Usually I go shopping while he naps as he moans too much when he’s awake. And today I expected no different when after lunch, I said to him “Let’s go shopping!” and he goes, “NO shopping!”

We went anyway, and in Next he asked to come out of the pushchair. I thought he would lead me out of the shop, but no, he was actually looking at all the clothes! So I picked out some t-shirts and showed him, and he gave me a clear ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to which ones he likes. There was one in particular that got a gasp and a “Wow cars” in a gasp-y voice. Anyway, it seems he’s got good taste (phew!), so I thought I’d share his choices. You can see there’s a theme here…

So I guess shopping will be a different experience now he has a say. It’s nice that he has an opinion on fashion 🙂
Do your little ones like to have a say on their clothes choices?

  1. My little boy is only just over one but if he finds his ‘ a car, a car, a car’ tshirts (especially the first one pictured above) he wants to change straight into it…bless these fashion conscious little guys! x


    • Ahh thank you 🙂 I’m so surprised and happy he’s got good taste in clothes, and he seemed to like choosing them. I never thought my boy would like clothes shopping ever! xx

  2. Haha, I’d expect that from girls, must be hard! Your boy sounds funny, I’m guessing that’s Tyler in the future :-O For now, yes I’m relieved he seems to have style, phew! xx


  3. Great post. My two have their own style. Will is more rustic/ cool ….think Olly Murrs. James is more ‘funny’….he likes thirty with pictures like batman, star wars or jokes.

    Although when shopping I do tend to buy what I like for them still :/ #twinklytuesday


  4. My 3 year old has been like this for a while, she loves to rifle through clothes rails and generally picks out lovely stuff. However, when it comes to getting dressed she can come up with some very peculiar outfits! haha! x


  5. Awww I think it’s brilliant that he is choosing his own clothes. My eldest is nearly 5 and really doesn’t care what I dress him in. Perhaps I should start asking him? lol

  6. I adore the middle one!! The kids are having some awful big growth spurts these days, must be the nice weather! And almost everything now that used to fit a few weeks ago, is now too small!! 😮



  7. Good for him! And good for you, letting him choose! My boys have been given most of their clothes — hand-me-downs from generous friends — but they get to choose what they wear each day. Within reason. I draw the line at the Batman costume 😉 Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday
