Boys need clothes too!

Buying boys clothes can be really bloody frustrating. I know you can’t have the pretty dresses, the colourful cardigans and the cute skirt/tights combos. But seriously…..I think shops can do better!

Loads of shops seem to have half a rail for boys and 4 for girls. Thankfully I get most his clothes online where there is a bit more choice, but it is very annoying. I go into shops and see loads of beautiful girls clothes to choose from, and hardly any boys. How am I meant to fulfil my need for retail therapy if there’s nothing to buy!

As I am not above naming and shaming, the stores I have found to be the worst offenders are:

1. Sainsburys. Many a time I have gone to a store to take advantage of the 25% off offer and found that there is hardly any boys clothes and the ones I like rarely have his size. My bank will be happy about this, I am not…..
2. Marks and Spencer’s. This really annoys me as this is one of my favourite stores for quality clothes with generous sizing plus they regularly do 20% off. Fortunately their online store and click and collect is brilliant.
3. H&M. I haven’t actually managed to buy anything because the last store I went into had such a small boys collection and their online system isn’t quite as user friendly.

Boys also want more than jeans and striped tops, a little variation would be great. I don’t want Arthur to look like every other little boy, he will have enough time for a uniform when he’s as school! At the moment there seems to be a uniform for toddler boys, jeans or navy cords and a stripy long sleeve top!

There are some amazing online stores which I think I’m going to have to start using, but then my bank really won’t like me!!! Organic leggings here we come……
