Up and Away Jackets for Everyone!




I am of the firm belief of empowering females and with daughters I encourage them to do whatever they can. I support their dreams and have told them over and over, that they can do anything they put their mind to. My 3 year old loves everything her bigger sister and brothers do and have even wanted to wear their clothing. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a girl wearing boy clothing. As a matter of fact, while I was growing up I had no sisters, I however had 2 older brothers and I would sometimes steal their tees so I can have oversized shirts. Even as an adult you may sometimes find me walking around the house in my still oversized tees. Nothing wrong with that at all. My boys have worn pink because to me it's just a color. Whoever came up with blue is for boys and pink is for girls didn't know what they were doing. My daughter can wear anything she wants to! So when Up and Away Jackets once again asked us to feature their jackets we decided to do something different.


Usually we would feature a "girlie" jacket but one of their newer jacket featured a boy. It was their Paleontologist Jacket inspired by jackets worn by “Indiana Jones” and fossil excavators around the world. Now automatically you would think, well this is for a boy, but there are female paleontologist too. I personally don't consider any career gender specific and like to think of them all as gender neutral. My daughter loves to play in the sand and dirt just as much as any boy does, so this was perfect for her.


The Paleontologist jacket features three dinosaur fossil-themed patches and an American Flag patch. It is made of 100% cotton and is water repellant which I loved. It also has two front storage pockets and two side hand pockets, perfect for when the weather is cool like it is now. I even loved the cute little brown collar.


Now the next is something that I fell in love with immediately. The Up and Away Girl’s MA-1 Flight Jacket takes its cues from flight jackets worn by past aviators, and honors the WWII Women’s Air Service Pilots. While most people think of pilots being mostly men, yes there have been women pilots as well, just like most people seem to think that it's mostly men that serve in our armed forces. I can't tell you how many times I would get, "so how long was your husband in the army?" and my response would be "he's never served, I did!". Yes us women serve in the armed forces doing jobs that were only once reserved for men. The military is also now gender neutral and jobs are offered to everyone!


The Girl's MA-1 Flight Jacket has 7 pilot-themed embroidered patches and is made of 100% nylon. One of the thing I really loved was the detailing on this jacket. From the airplane zipper pulls to the cute little patches.


The side pockets which snaps close are perfect for putting little hands into, which is what Madison just loves doing. This jacket like the Paleontologist jacket is also water repellent. These make the perfect Spring and Fall jackets or very mild winters.


Up and Away Jackets generally runs true to size but it's recommended that you order one size up. Madison currently wears a 3T/4T but we got a size 4/5 in both jackets and you can see the fit on her. We love that they are all water repellent and we've never had a problem with our Up and Away Jackets. They wash well and hold up great! These are perfect for the Spring weather but will make great gifts for the boy or girl in your life.




Let's discuss: What do you think of girls wearing "boys" clothing?

  4. Adorable! Your daughter looks super cute in a flight jacket :) Does she have any interest in learning how to fly?
    My oldest want to be a pilot when she was younger and would have loved to have a jacked like that!

  5. I love both of those jackets, and I can tell you that I'm the kind of person who loves wearing non girlie stuff, so I like them both! Precious photos.

  6. This is one of my favorite posts! I love girls wearing "boys" clothing and vice versa. I love when they know it doesn't matter. Heck, I used to wear my father's flannel shirts and his military-style jackets and I felt pretty cool in them.
    Not as cool as Madison looks, though.

  8. I'm with Tamara on this post. I used to always wear my big brothers and my dads shirts too. I still wear my husbands boxers around the house. They are so much more comfortable than my own shorts. :) I'm not sure who ever decided that blue was for boys and pink for girls either. My boys wear pink and they look good doing it. Madison is a cutie in each jacket and that I'm sure she'll make a great Paleontologist if she decides that's what she wants to be.

  11. These jackets are very cool! In my opinion kids should be able to wear whatever they feel comfortable in - plus the brown coat looks gender neutral to me! Such a cutie.

  15. How cute. I personally think if you are dressing them in what they love, it doesn't matter what they wear. My daughter just happens to love pink and frills and sparkles.

  23. I think it's more than cool enough for girls to wear boys clothing. I am loving that Paleontologist jacket. My niece would look great in it because she's been talking about dinosaurs a lot lately since watching Jurassic Park. :)

  24. Honestly, a Girl has bigger advantage to dress up boy clothing! We own boy shoes, boy pants, boy hoodies, etc. and Gabs looks great in it! I'm in love with the Paleontologist jacket.

  25. How fun! My daughter would be all about the pink one and learning about empowerment could come right along with it. It would also be fun to get one for my son to wear and pass down to his sister when he outgrows it!
