does your dc clothing match their gender?

for older dd, Celeste, most of her stuff is pink and purple, very girly. She picks alot of it, but it seems to suit her.

For baby dd, Amira, I dont always get the pink stuff! It doesnt seem to fit her personality. She looks better in blue dinos than pink fluffies. Most of the stuff I get her is not very girly, in fact I like the puppy dog and dino clothes from the boy section better! LOL!

So, do most of you mamas dress your dc in gender appropriate clothing, or do you venture to the 'other side'?

Re: does your dc clothing match their gender?

Yes for all 3 kids. My boys are old enough to where they can pick and chose their colors and what they wear but I have dressed them in clothes that go with their gender and perosnality.

After 2 boys and waiting so long to have another baby and then finding out it was a girl. Well all her clothes are very girly but it fits her personality.

ds wears anything.....well obviously we dont put him in a dress or pink, but pretty much everything else but pink, frills, and flowers are free game. He wears alot of white, yellow and pastel greens and purples.

DS clothes are ALL boy, I usually only dress him in clothes that you would see a older kid/teen/adult. Not alot of cartoon character or cutesy animal stuff. If it has anything on it, its sports or car/truck related.

Re: does your dc clothing match their gender?

We've got two boys and two ALL BOY boys. Mason is to the point where he likes to pick out his clothes, and he definitely gravitates to the all boy side of boy clothes.

Camden is the same way, just because it's what we have, not because he cares. But, it fits both of their personalities. Definitely!


Although, if we ever have a girl, it will be fun to dress her, but I'm not a girly girl myself, so I don't think we'd ever do the all lacey, froo-froo stuff. Girl stuff is cute, but some of that stuff just looks like lace threw-up on it! Just my taste though, I guess!

I could have written this with my two boys' names in there instead. I don't get into girly stuff and am athletic, so maybe God knew what he was thinking when he sent me boys
I don't really like the color pink I have some purple in my dipes though, real dark purple though.

For the most part, yes, but I do have some very GN stuff for #3 boy. I would never dress him in girly stuff though.

I think it's easier to dress a girl in boyish stuff than vice versa. Much easier.

Re: does your dc clothing match their gender?

My girls dress pretty girly. They are too young to pick anything yet. My son dresses like a boy but sometimes will want the purple rubber boots because they are pretty or the Ariel (little mermaid) snow boots because he loves the movie. Last year his favorite colour was hot pink. He really doesn't care.
