My Favorite Brands for (Well Made) Cool, Gender Neutral Baby Clothes

Gender neutral baby clothing in various earthy colors.

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.

36 Amazing Black Owned Businesses to Shop/Support + My Action Plan Moving Forward

Black-owned businesses in fashion, home, kids, beauty, and more.

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).

Before I share anything, there are amazing anti-racism resources being put together to educate non-black people, like myself, on anti-racism. Like this anti-racism resources document and this list of ways you can help.?If you haven’t already, I highly recommend starting there.?And if you are able to donate, here are a handful of organizations to look into: Black Lives Matter /?Color of Change?/ Black Visions Collective / Loveland Foundation?/ The Conscious Kid.

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 →

How to Make Fabric Bowls (Similar to Paper Mache but with Fabric Scraps)

It’s fabric paper?mache! Use up those leftover fabric scraps for cute housewares that are also totally functional.

DIY fabric bowls stacked on top of each other.

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.

And I’ve been asked about it so many times on Instagram, I thought it was probably time to create a tutorial. Especially since I finally found the original step by step photos. Haha.
