We are back this month with our summer picks from the fab Melijoe.com website. The Mini Mads have had a good browse of the website and here are their choices. The boys are ten and nearly nine and have distinct personalities, so see if you can tell who picked which sets!
Summer Clothes for Boys
As a mum there are a few things that I look for in summer clothes, so I thought I would share with you my top tips for picking summer clothes for kids.
I love unique clothes and the brighter the better for me. Places are often really busy in the summer, so if the boys stand out that suits me fine!
I need clothes that wash and wear. No matter what clothes we buy I can guarantee that the kids will wear the same sets over and over again. They have their favorites!
Cotton is king in the summer, kids sweat and clothes that breath are so important.
When it comes to summer shoes, just make sure that your kids can put on and take off by themselves.
I am a big fan of quality clothes that can be worn by more than one child. Lots of the outfits that we bought for Maxi have been worn by Mini and then passed on to my best friend who has four boys. So they have been worn by six kids sometimes, making their cost per wear negligible.
Are your kids at the age where you can pick their clothes or are they like my boys and want to make the choices themselves?
Thank you for sharing these lovely pieces Jen, I’m not a fan of shopping for boys clothes in store as there always seems to be so many more items for girls to wear.
Or they’ll have a fair mix of items, but the boys are dull and dark colours, not something I want Spud to wear in the summer! I’m off to check out Melijoe – summer is on its way after all! The perfect excuse to buy little man some more clothes x
Your in lucky that my boys have good taste in clothes and are quite sensible too! We’ve just lost our Gap which I’m devastated over! I love your choices here.
I am loving the mix of colours – my son likes bright colours too.
Love both of those outfits – great colours and perfect for summer.
It’s a combination of both for my son – who lets me choose some of his clothes but likes picking some out himself too. He would like these bright colours – the shoes are particularly fab.
Those shorts are super cool! My son unfortunately will only wear black and navy at the moment, I’d love to see him in some bright colours.
definitely a fan of canvas shoes i bought some for myself last week and i love the look of those shorts
Those shorts with the braces are COOL!
My daughter refuses to wear anything I pick and she’s only 7!
My son is almost 6 and has recently started showing an interest in picking his own clothes, Sometimes it goes well… sometimes not so well lol! I love the bright colours in the clothing above!
Your boys made a great choice. Love the colors – very trendy!
My girl is nearly three. Sometimes i let her pick her own clothes but she ends up looking hideous. Bless her!
I really like you choices, I have 2 sons and the they love looking smart and bright good quality clothes is a must. My older son would wear the red T and pattern shorts, he likes to be noticed – fab. Great site, I haven’t come across it before. Thank you.
Great choices. i still pick most of Dyl’s clothes although I think I do know his style. think its easier buying for girls as there is more choice.
What some great ideas for the summer! I love the trousers very cool. x
Shopping for younger boys is easy but as they get older and fussy i find it a nightmare
Those shorts are adorable I love little braces! Luckily my twins are still at the age were they are happy for me to dress them in what ever I like!
Ooh what nice bright clothing so cute
Great choices boys! I especially like the shorts with the braces.
Luckily my children are still at the age that I choose what they wear but I’m not sure how much longer Roo will let me do this for her.
Wow they are very stylish boys! My girls don’t care all that much about fashion yet, which is a shame, but nearly-10-year old is getting there. Wish she wasn’t quite so fussy though, so difficult to get her clothes these days!
I had never heard of this brand before Jen but the mini’s picks look fantastic so will check out some key pieces for Joshua 🙂
I love the shorts with the braces, they’re so sweet! xx
Mine would never wear something I picked out – I think they would hate it on principal x x
Fab clothes! I love picking my own as young as I am x
