GUEST POST {Boys of Summer. By Valerie Soles}

Because it is officially summer and the task of dressing a toddler boy in anything at all (let alone fashionably) has become even trickier, I thought it might be nice to recap some of my favorite spring and summer outfits for wee dudes. As a mother of a son, I sometimes get teased for dressing him “like (my) doll”, which I think is a bit unfair. Why should the girls have all the fun? Looking sharp is for everyone.

For early morning stoop sitting:

  • Sweatshirt from Trico Field (where all of his clothes would come from, if I were a millionaire), bought secondhand at Clementine Consignment
  • T shirt from Atsuyo et Akiko, purchased from a posh Williamsburg mama’s stash of outgrowns
  • Makie shorts (size 12-18 months, still fit and in great shape at 3 years!)
  • Crewcuts socks
  • Bear Feet shoes, scored cheap on Ebay
Hanging out in East River State Park:
  • Favorite engineer hat, from one of our first Transit Museum visit
  • Bobo Choses Mehari t shirt
  • Mor Mor Rita sailor jeans, purchased sechondhand
  • Bear Feet woven toe sandals, purchased on Ebay
Tagging park property: 
  • That engineer hat goes with everything
  • Mama-made hippie tunic top in a vintage car print
  • Mama-made shorts
  • Ubiquitous Saltwater sandals
That was fun. I’m looking forward to fall, when putting clothes on him is (hopefully) fun again. In the meantime, see you ’round the sprinklers!
