Mamas & Minis Style Collective: Back to School & Gender Neutral + $100 GIVEAWAY!

Dinosaur gender neutral Kid Clothing

My little girl, Nora, absolutely loves anything and everything her big brother, Liam, loves (and does).  If he's wearing shorts, she wants to wear shorts, if he is playing with race cars, she is playing with race cars, and so on.  I actually really love that she'll play with cars, not worry about getting dirty and a skinned knee doesn't phase her. 

One of my new favorite brands is Mitz Apparel & Accessories, a company that recently completed their first Kickstarter campaign successfully, is celebrating gender equality clothing for kids (and offering one of you a chance to win $100 in credit - see bottom of this post!).  Now they are up and running, and taking and fulfilling orders for their all gender neutral clothing line!  Their mission is to to empower both boys and girls and encourage kids to be who they want to be (and wear what they want to wear!). 

I'm all about letting my kids pick out their own clothing and outfits (even if sometimes it makes me grimace), but typical stores really guide that choice in what types of prints/patterns and colors are offered for boys vs. girls. If Nora wants to wear flowers or dinosaur prints, I celebrate each of those choices - and she should be able to have that choice!  And if Liam wants to wear pink or blue, each should be totally normal.  

So, I'm trying to do a better job in including my kids' in our back to school/fall shopping so they hav have input in what they wear.  When I whipped out these 'must love dinosaur' print pieces, they both flipped with excitement (cool mom award).  It is a print they both loved instantly, and especially loved the addition of the cute dino-spikes on the back (which are made from recycled soda bottles!).  We got so many compliments on these when we were at the park, and hope that other brands will also start to offer more gender neutral options for kids.

My back to school/fall must have is a denim jacket.  Come cooler weather, I'm digging out my denim pieces and layering them on. Denim is also a great gender-neutral item for kids into adults.  I think as we age, we have more options - and finding more gender neutral items for adults seems to be a bit easier.
