BCWP, Day 28

Today is the last day in our Boys Can Wear Pink series. It has been FANTASTIC!! I have truly enjoyed seeing all the great looks created by everybody. To wrap things up, Scary over at Shaffer Sisters made a gender rules breaking outfit for her little cuddle monster.

 Today I have one more look to share as well. Did you know I have a teenager? A big boy teenager. I do. He doesn't like to have the camera pointed at him often, so you won't see much of him. And because he is a teen, I try very hard to respect his space and coolness and not drag him around into the little world I live in here occasionally. But, my big old 17 year old thought this bow tie was pretty sweet and he asked if he could be the one who modeled it for me. (Really, I was teasing him one day with it and told him I was going to make him model it for me and he jump at the chance to do it. Cool, huh!) So here he is, making his blogging debut.

Isn't he handsome. :) I made this bow tie using Peek-a-Boo's Little Gentleman's Tie pattern. It's the child size, but other than the neckband being too small for an adult, the size of the bow tie looks nice. I made this for Thomas. Never in a million years did I think this guy would want a pink plaid bow tie. But he loves it and kept it. I need to make a new band for him. We safety pinned it on here. LOL

I know the vest is way cool also. I didn't make that. Though I have been challenged a bit to make a vest myself using this one as a guide. I love a challenge, so I may just do that. But for those interested, the vest is from The Buckle. I have no clue if they still have it. We got it back in December.

Thank you to all the awesome sponsors and bloggers who participated!! If you want to see all the looks created for Boys Can Wear Pink, click the button on the sidebar, or go here.  This has been a fabulous first series and I plan to do more and to repeat this next February! 

 These two guys would like to remind you that boys of all ages can wear whatever color they like, be it black, red, blue or pink! Colors do not assign gender. Use whatever crayon in the box makes you happy. And if somebody dares to break your crayon, just pull out a marker and go to town.


  1. My favorite way for boys (or anyone for that matter) to wear pink is with accessories. I love that bow tie!

  2. Thank you for putting this all together. It has been such a great series, full of so many awesome creations!

  3. Thank you for this series! It was fun to participate and wonderful to see all the interpretations of boys in pink.

  4. Thanks so much for running this tour! It was awesome, start to finish! Can't wait for the next one!

  5. And to answer your question... I like my boys to wear pink usually as a part of a blend of colors. Fun and funky and a little bit loud. :)

  6. Loved every bit of this series, Kelly! Thanks for organizing :) I love using pink as an accent color, especially if it is bold and bright!

  7. love the small accents. I'm 'still' not a huge fan of all pink for boys :p

  8. I like pink on boys. Some pull it off really well. I love the bowtie!

  9. I love boys in pink - Pants are probably where I <3 it the most, but also mixed in a rad T shirt or in with cool hip print

  10. So sweet that he offered to pose! He's super handsome in his bow tie too!

  11. Love all the creations, it really isn't fair to assign colors to gender. Boys are already limited on styles, why limit them on color as well?!

    1. Oh, and my favorite way for boys to wear pink is a full pink polo shirt. If you're gonna go for it, do the whole thing in pink!

  12. My boys usually don't wear pink, but after reading this series, I might give it a try!

  13. YES! I challenge you!!
    I love this series. You did a fantastic job with it!
