Regal and Rugged
I love to dress my little guy. This has always been the case. An added incentive is that he is cool with it too. He loves to look his best or "really cool" is how he describes the look. When I dress him and the look has won his approval, I notice an extra pep in his step. He starts to feel himself! Confidence is palpable. Although the clothes do not make the man. The clothes may give the man an extra boost. If you don't believe me read about the little cinder girl turned princess, aka Cinderella. A glass slipper changed her life, lol. Yes I understand it is a fairy tale but the principle holds true. The right shoe, shade of lipstick, haircut or dress could make a person feel like a million bucks. Personal style is transformative. My son's style has evolved as he has grown. When he was a baby it was all regal. He was prim and proper and preppy some may describe. Seersucker, peter pan collars, plaid and soft colors, his wardrobe was as soothing and clam as an afternoon tea. This made sense at the time he was this precious little baby. He soon became a running climbing exploring little boy and a very cool little guy, I must say, lol biased, I know. Edgy fitted deconstructed jeans, trendy sneakers, and graphic tees felt appropriate. The look grew to reflect his new phase. We now live somewhere in between princely preppy and perfectly playful. An entirely fun aesthetic to style. Fashion is arguably one of my first and truest loves. A creative representative form of art that one can wear! Amazing! Simply amazing. I share all that I love in this world with my kiddos. Fashion is no different.
