As you will be well aware, I’m a big fan of online shopping for myself and my home. Since Arlo was born, my own wants have taken a back seat and I’m now obsessed with shopping for my boy. Things I Like, For Arlo is a new blog feature which lets you see all the things I’d love to buy for Arlo – anything from clothing to toys.
I like babies to look like babies. I dressed Arlo in a lot of white when he was just born. I’m not a fan of baby pink for girls and powder blue for boys. I prefer fun, colourful clothes. I also didn’t want Arlo wearing anything too ‘grown up’ for his age. I have avoided dressing him in any dark denim until now. I preferred lighter chambray which I consider more ‘babyish.’ It’s only now, at 5 months, that he is wearing more ‘boyish’ clothes. I think that however you dress your child really reflects your own personal style, we are the ones doing the choosing after all. Like myself, I love to dress Arlo in something stripey. How cute are these wee character appliqué t-shirts from John Lewis? They are such fun. I love the bright candy colours and tactile embroidery. Arlo would look adorable in one of these.
Which is your favourite? Where do you like to shop for the wee ones?
