When I was pregnant I decided that I didn’t want to know if I was having a girl or a boy. This meant that most of the clothes I purchased where from the boys section of the store as I felt that these were more wearable by both sexes so it didn’t matter what we had. When A was born we were bombarded with pink, pink and more pink. I’ve nothing against the colour pink but it does annoy me that people think that little girls should be dressed head to toe in it. I’m a girl and I don’t go about wearing sugary pink so why shouldn’t A wear darker colours or even blue! A does have pink clothes but I like to put them with black or grey and try to make the colour more modern. I really don’t want her to grow up with all the ideals that seems to go along with the colour. To me I think of pink representing pretty princesses, and the idea that beauty is more important that anything else. She will probably end up loving pink when she is a bit older as most young girls do. I won’t stop her from wearing it but for now I’d like to keep dressing her in other colours and try not to buy her to much pink. I think she looks best in monochrome anyway and what could be more stylish than that.
