I’ve decided that spring/summer shopping for a toddler boy is way more fun than shopping for a baby. Clothes just look so much cuter when they are upright and moving around. I had fun dressing Jack last spring and summer, but now that he’s not growing quite as quickly I’ve been able to spend a little more money on quality pieces that he will wear for quite a while. I’m still a big fan of Old Navy and Target, but I recently splurged and bought some J.Crew pieces (while they were having a sale so it wasn’t too painful on the wallet) and I even bought a pair of Vineyard Vines swim trunks that will match the pair I bought for my husband (yay twinning!). Here are some of my recent toddler boy purchases and my thoughts on them:
tassel loafers: These loafers crack me up because they’re such a little man shoe. Jack stops and plays with the tassels occasionally, even while on the dance floor at my brother’s wedding. It was so funny! They are now his go-to dress shoes and he wore them for Easter too.
buoy short sleeved oxford: I love oxfords that have little prints on them. I figure he needs a short sleeve one for dressy events and church as the weather gets warmer.
pelican print shorts: These are on clearance right now so they’re a great price and will go well with all the Old Navy solid t-shirts he has.
