No Style is Style by Teresa Palmer

I personally have such eclectic style. I would say my baseline style is earthy bohemian for sure, however I love wearing rocker, retro/vintage as well as glam for evening events. So naturally my son Bodhi has very wide ranging style too but mainly he is a hippie gypsy free spirit nature boy! As he has grown older I’ve really found it interesting to find clothes for him that represent his little being. He is most comfortable walking around barefoot and nothing else so when we are at home that’s what he does! When we leave the house we tend to steer away from typical “boy” looking colors and styles. We really like dressing Bodhi in yellows and bright colors, slouchy pants with animal faces on the back, tie dye pants and printed tops. Everyday is different depending on what we are doing and the vibe of the morning when I’m getting him dressed. His clothes also compliment his good old famous Australian mullet and we love it!

My favorite thing that he wears though are his hand knitted sweaters I picked up in Australia from a small country town knitted by a sweet old great grandmother. We bought 3 sweaters in bright colors and he wears them often. Our other favorite items of Bodhi’s clothes are the 3 little handmade tops with cute hand drawn patterns on them (see pic above!) that we picked up at the farmers market in Costa Rica. They were one off pieces and are our favorite of his tops, our purchases also supported the local community their too which made them extra special. When we were in Berlin we went to a second hand store and bought a ton of pre-loved vintage baby wear which we got so much use out of. I love that Bodhi’s clothes represent the different countries we’ve spent time in and that Bodhi is a little patchwork of our experiences. It’s a little mix and match and doesn’t always  follow the “fashion rules” but with my little guy just leaning true to who he is means he always looks like him and I love that. I’m tired of hearing that boys clothes aren’t as cute as the girls clothes! That’s bollocks! My tips are to find one off pieces, great staple items and utilize vintage clothes because we all looked so cute and unique when we were growing up. You don’t have to have a girl to be able to get creative! Have fun.
