So since now Lyric is in school every day… I get to dress him, EVERY DAY! hahaha! I know what you’re thinking… didn’t you dress him every day before? Well, yes.. but some of those days we were dressed in pajamas, that just happened to be worn to bed the night before. (no, we didn’t leave the house) You know you’ve been there. I’ve mentioned before how boy’s clothes have come a LONG way, and I absolutely LOVE shopping for and styling Lyric. I know there will come a day when he’ll want to pick his own clothes, and I’m almost certain it’ll be “comfy pants” (pants with elastic waists). ugh. But lucky for me, WHEAT has thought of everything! They’ve designed clothes that are both fashionable AND built for play!
WHEAT, founded in 2002 by a Danish couple Charlotte and Peter Galsgaard, is simple designed clothing for babies and children, combining comfort with beautiful Scandinavian inspiration. They combine style and practicality seamlessly. With 5 pieces (6 if you count the hat), I was able to create 5 looks! The pants Lyric is wearing, the Trousers Noah… comfy pants! Yep, that’s right! They look and fit like “dress pants”, but they have an elastic waist, and not like the tacky baby version, an adjustable big kid kind. So Lyric thinks he’s getting his way, when in reality, he looks top notch! (Parenting WIN! haha)
The entire line is mix and match, so for those parents who are always feeling like they’re sending their child out looking like a hot mess, will have no problem with WHEAT. The fabrics used are produced exclusively for WHEAT, giving the designers rich opportunities to play with the stripes, checks, embroideries and more complicated applications. This also ties in with my need to have something unique! hehe!
This season’s hashtag is #fallforWHEAT, and that’s exactly what will happen the moment you even touch your first piece. So soft! Two things that are on the top of my list are quality and price. WHEAT doesn’t disappoint in either department. Their goal is to continually offer the best quality in all natural material, and their prices are really affordable. I will always opt to pay for something I know will last wash after wash and still look brand new!
I seriously wish these pants came in my size! haha! We’ve been custom making our harems out of men’s tshirts, but they in no way compare to the quality and feel of these pants! Sizing is true to size, and fit so well! I know I can’t be the only parent who wants clothes that actually fit their child? Not a baggy-could-be-a-hand-me-down tshirt and cargo what-are-they-going-to-need-pockets-that-size-too-big shorts… no? Lyric is wearing a 3Y in all pieces and I was pleasantly surprised. I just sent him to school this morning in an 18-24m tshirt, so you just never know, but WHEAT is true to size.
I think Lyric feels quite comfy in this look! He certainly wasn’t restricted when running around and jumping all over the place. While I love Lyric’s curls, they don’t always look picture perfect.. and on those days, a hat is my go to! This soft hat was almost like a newborn beanie made big. It looks adorable and was nice and light for fall.
If you don’t already own some pieces from WHEAT, I encourage you to head on over and take a look! I know you’ll find something you just have to have! Make sure to tweet me (@amandahayden) and @WHEATCanada to show off what you’ve chosen and how you styled your lil one! I can’t wait to see!!
