GOLDEN BOYS

How to keep your boys looking and feeling cool as the weather hots up..

Firstly, sorry to everyone who received this post earlier via email with no content! That’s taught me a lesson about leaving my iPad near my one year old!

Anyhow, the sunshine has well and truly made an appearance and my edit of boys’ summer clothes is ready just in time!

My main tip for a stylish boys look is to turn up the sleeves Continue reading

#thriftythursday : sweet stripes

How cute is this little ensemble?!

You’re thinking its a Petit Bateau £45-er right? Nope, it’s £17.99 from HM!

I was dubious about the quality but I was so pleasantly surprised when it arrived today that i thought it deserved a little mention on here.

Made from really soft, light knitted organic cotton. It’s quite big so I’d be tempted to size down. (Obviously I’m keeping this size to stash away and will get the size down to wear now. And Yes my husband does hate me, thankfully he doesn’t read my posts!!)

Anyway, if you have a little boy (or girl) get it. It’s gorgeous for tiny babies and also for toddlers too as the 12-18 month I just bought is big enough for an average two year old!

Striped knitted top and bottoms £17.99

You’re welcome!

 How I dress my toddler boy 

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised when I entered the realm of baby boys’ clothes when Rupert was born. I think boys can be a lot more casual than girls without looking scruffy. Plus you can have a bit more fun with motifs and things (never with colours. I avoid orange and green at all costs.)

Rupert’s daily uniform is a loose, collarless shirt or henley long sleeve tee with comfortable harem joggers or soft cords. He doesn’t have any jeans and I don’t see the need for them. Especially while he’s crawling and climbing so much. Continue reading
