The sun’ll come out tomorrow..Hattie is singing those very words as I write this. The sun has been coming in and out like a jack-in-a-box and thankfully Hipministyle has summer style sewn up. Today it’s boys, 0-3yrs..

Bigger boys will be up next. Sorry it’s coming in dribs and drabs but it’s been a bit crazy in our household recently and now it’s half term which means I will literally not stop talking for one minute for 10 whole days. I’ll be answering so  many many questions, mediating arguments (battles), calming tantrums (some my own), bribing, negotiating, begging etc. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t have it any other way and I love having everyone at home, but it’s pretty full on. I suppose it’s quite good preparation for the 9 weeks of summer holidays which are looming! Is anyone else tired of hearing their own voice at the end of the day? My favourite thing to do once everyone is in bed is just sit in silence. Absolute silence.

Anyway, I’ve been totally sidetracked. Here you have it! Baby- toddler boys’ hipmini summer staples. All from the high street, none that will break the bank and all in stock, for now.

I know some people might think my boys’ style is boring, but I really, really think simple is better when it comes to boys. If you want a fail safe boys’ summer look and don’t want to splash out, just get a load of £2.99 Zara navy t-shirts and steer away from anything orange or green, who actually suits those colours anyway?! And roll up their trousers or jeans at the bottom. Looks really cute when they’re wearing sandals / birks.

Oh and by the way, when Zara are out of stock in things I click the ’email me when back in stock’ tab and things generally seem to come back in a few days. Defo worth doing if you really want something.

One final thing. I’m quite new to boys sizing etc, but shorts seem to fit for a long time. So Rupert at 15 months weirdly still fits 3-6 month shorts from last year. I would be tempted to size down so they’re ‘short’ shorts and not long baggy things.
