What Ben Wore: Whistle & Flute Review + Giveaway

On Friday we had a lunch date with my friend and her one year old daughter. I thought it was the perfect occasion for Benjamin to wear his new Je T'aime tee from Whistle & Flute.

"Whistle & Flute Clothing is a line of modern, stylish and affordable children's apparel inspired by Japanese kawaii characters, modern design and typography. The name, "Whistle & Flute" comes from the English rhyming-slang for a suit of clothes.

The collection was designed by the husband and wife duo of Ryan and Miranda McCullagh. Ryan is a graphic designer specializing in apparel printing and Miranda has half of a fashion-design school degree, an artistic eye and an intuition for design trends. Miranda and Ryan decided to create the line following the birth of their son, Akira. They wanted to create a line of children’s clothing featuring printed designs that they themselves would wear. These two lovebirds first began working together creatively in the indie-pop band, The Paper Cranes and they have carried that passion to their work on Whistle & Flute.
 
All Whistle & Flute clothing is printed made-to-order on American Apparel clothing and feature original artwork by Miranda and Ryan.

Fun fact: Miranda actually plays the flute." And personally, who wouldn't love a clothing brand with a subtitle, "Stylish clothing for dapper families." That's us, folks. *wink* 

I have had my eye on this shirt for Benjamin for a while now. You hear me say it again and again but graphic tees are my favorite. They go with everything and there is one for every occasion. Je T'aime means "I love you" in French and who doesn't love a shirt with that message? Paired with this triangle graphic and it's just the right mix of modern and classic. Whistle & Flute prints on American Apparel tees and this particular print is on the tri-blend tee (my favorite). Benjamin is wearing size 12-18 months.
I wanted to play off of the triangle with this outfit so he is also wearing one of my favorite baby accessories, a reversible handkerchief bib from Susie's Custom on Instagram (love IG shops!), and the most adorable custom hi-top booties from Love, Joleen sponsor, Paper Krane.
One reader will win their very own Whistle & Flute Kid's Je T'aime T-Shirt! The giveaway ends Thursday at 11:59 pm EST. There are ways to enter daily so be sure to pop back over to up your chances! Best of luck!
