Being the mom of a boy is fun! No, I don’t have the energy that he has (where is his off button??). And no, I can’t relate to the peeing while standing up thing. But my little guy amazes me everyday with his antics and boyish behaviors. Even when he’s being a terrible tantrum thrower (Lord, give me patience!), or making me want to down an entire bottle of wine (I don’t even drink), it’s hard to get mad at him because he’s so stinkin’ cute!
You know what’s also cute? Little boys dressed in adorable outfits. When I think of children’s fashion, I often imagine little girls all dolled up in dresses and bows. But boys can look just as cute and stylish! Check out these 5 ways to dress up your guy for summer.
1. Beach Bum
Headed to the sandy shore this summer? Your little dude will look super cute in a striped tank, denim shorts, flip flops and a fedora. I love the idea of doing colors that are reminiscent of the ocean and the water. This look would work for strolling down the boardwalk, or just walking around a shopping center in a small beach town.
I think this Crocodile Print Fedora from Joe Fresh is seriously cute! It has those aquatic colors, and a crocodile on it- I mean, come on, how perfect!
2. Country Club Cutie
For a dressy, dapper look, your boy will be soooo handsome in a pair of plaid shorts and a polo shirt. Add a belt for an extra touch of cool, and put a pair of boat shoes on those big boy feet. Hit the country club, a nice restaurant or check out a museum on your vacation. Beware- the girls will stare!
How fun is this pair of Ralph Lauren Cotton Madras Shorts? The colors are great, and the print is just right for summer.
3. Adorable Overalls
For the tiniest tots, a onesie under a pair of overalls is so cute! And it’s a super easy look to put together. If your mini man is already walking, add a pair of sandals to the look. Ain’t nothing cuter than little people waddling around like penguins!
Nothing says summer like this adorable Sweet Peanut Bodysuit with flip flops on it!
4. Relaxed Rugrat
If your boy is all about chillaxin’ this summer, he will look awesome in a comfortable, casual outfit. All he needs is a fun graphic tee, some comfortable shorts and a great pair of sneakers.
I don’t know about you, but I think this “I’m Busy Right Meow” Little Boys Graphic Tee from Jem is hilarious! And so true to boys (and husbands) with the video game element. I mean, are you kitten me with the cuteness??
5. Wedding Guest Getup
Attending a summer wedding? Dress your boy up in something great. A classic pair of khaki shorts with a summer colored button down works, but for a really fun look, add suspenders and a colorful tie to the mix! Your guy will look so good, he might upstage the groom!
I would totally dress my little boy up with these Nautica Pin-Dot Suspenders. You don’t see prints like this everyday!
