You’re tired. Tired of shrouding your feisty boy in trendy skull motifs and faux undersleeves. But most of all, you’re tired of wishing you could shop in the girls’ section.
Revive his wardrobe (and your spirits) with cheerful boys’ play clothes from Dadoo Kids, designed by local mom Christine Miller Kelly.
Everything’s made sweatshop free right here in California from a soft blend of organic cotton and sweat-wicking bamboo. Contrasting raglan sleeves, padded knees, and silk-screened sharks and helicopters make these pieces anything but ordinary. Stretchy knits and flat waistbands transition easily from playtime to nap time — even when he doesn’t.
Best part: Dadoo is cleverly unisex, with most items suitable for girls, too. It’s just the boost you need.
Available online at dadookids.com, $18-$38.
