Yeah!!! It is time to purchase your toddlers Summer clothing. I love the hot sunny weather. It is time to play outside and sit on your patio. Don’t forget about splashing around in the pool and buying ice cream from the ice cream truck! It is now time to put away the jeans and sneakers and bring out the shorts and sandals. I love Summer and so does my toddler.
Here are a few of the “must haves” for your little boys closet this Summer. These are the items that I use for my sons Summer wardrobe every year.
These of course, are a given. Summer time you have to have sandals. I usually purchase my son a few pairs of each. Sometimes you can pick these up so cheaply you may as well have a few pairs on hand.
My son is 3 so I prefer the sandals that have velcro. I usually try and find the ones that Velcro behind the ankle. These are not as quick to get off. I have used the sandals that Velcro across the foot and he is quick to take them off and run in his bare feet. (Not a good idea when you are in the grocery store.)
I also try to buy a variety of colors. You can purchase some nice brown leather ones to wear to church or for good clothes. Buy some “sporty” ones too. That way you will cover all bases to match with all of his outfits. No Summer toddler boys clothing wardrobe is complete without sandals.
Now a 3 year old cannot wear the flip flops that you or I wear. However they can wear the flops that hook around the ankles so they do not flip off. These are Great! These are nice for play and at the beach!! So you can stock up for the whole summer. Especially if you catch them on sale. Stock Up. You will be surprised how many pairs your little ones can go through during the summer. Now that we have covered the summer shoes let’s move on to the summer clothes!!
A Must Have!! Every summer toddler boys clothing wardrobe has to have swim trunks. I have about 5 pairs on hand during the summer. If you have a small pool in the backyard then it is good to have back-up swimming trunks. Hint Allow your toddler help pick out a few pairs of their own. You know how much they will like wearing trunks that they picked out themselves. They feel so proud!
You have to keep tons of these on hand. Especially on the really hot days!! My son wears tank tops everyday in July and August. You can buy matching shorts and tank sets and your summer toddler boys clothing closet is ready to go! Tanks are really great and inexpensive. So buy lots and lots of them.
This of course is the easy part of your toddler boys clothing for summer. You just get shirts that match with the shorts, polos, button downs, t-shirts. The ideas are endless. Remember to keep in mind and buy shirts that will match with multiple shorts.
What would your toddlers summer clothing wardrobe be without shorts. Shorts are a necessity for any toddlers wardrobe. Here are just a few shorts I like to include in my sons wardrobe.
I like to keep several denim shorts in my toddlers summer clothes wardrobe. These are great to put on with a tank top to run to the store or even to go out to dinner. You can dress denim shorts up or down. That is what is great about denim shorts.
These are great to wear to church or even just to run around in. Again, purchase different colors. Khaki, blue and even camouflage!!
Just remember to keep in mind that you want your little guy to be stylish and cool at the same time. That is the key we want our little kids to be comfortable in the hot weather. It is possible to dress sharp and stay KEWL!
