Gap Denim Shorts (0-24 months)
I always think it’s much harder to dress boys in the Summer than girls (well, when you think about it – take away dresses and your choices are quite limited). Denim shorts are a great option because they can just replace jeans. And they look good with pretty much everything – t-shirts, sweatshirts (even jumpers when it gets a bit cooler later in the day). They just look so cool and effortless. Marlow is wearing a very similar pair to this (also from Gap) today with a Boden navy and white striped long-sleeved t-shirt and his Hampton Classic sandals.

Hampton Classics Nantucket Sandals (sizes 19-32)
I love these! Tabitha had a pair last year, and she literally lived in them. I’ve just bought Tabs and Marlow a pair each for this Summer, and they are both wearing them today. I love that they are such a classic design, and completely plain. And honestly, they look great with everything, from jeans to shorts to dresses to leggings. They are perfect for this weather because they are open, but still have the closed toe for when it’s a little chillier. And such a great price too.

Monsoon Girl China Striped Dress (0-3 years)
How much are you loving this gorgeous weather?? Apologies to all mums (and not forgetting the dads, grannies etc etc) with boys – I know I have been guilty of more girl posts recently.  But worry not – loads of lovely boys’ things to come I promise! This weather just makes me feel more ‘girly’ I suppose. And how cute is this dress? To anyone who thought that Monsoon just did pretty bridesmaids’ dresses (myself included), think again. Loving the blue and white stripe, the flower embroidery, the pockets, and last but not least, that it comes with matching knickers! So sweet.

Cox & Cox Light Switch Stickers (Girls/Animals)
Oh my gosh, could these stickers be any cuter?? Such a lovely idea. If I had to choose (and I will of course, when I get five minutes!) I would go for the animal set I think. Each set contains enough stickers for eight switch boxes. Another lovely (and inexpensive) present idea. Love, love, love.

boden bodysuits

Boden 5 Pack Bodies (0-24 months)
Boden do the best bodysuits. Tabarlow wore them (different prints, but equally cute) when they were babies, and I loved them in them. Generally I like plain white ones to wear in Winter under things, but these are great for the Summer to sleep in, or as t-shirts during the day. The rabbit print is completely adorable, and as you know, I always love a stripe! They wash brilliantly and are made from lovely cotton (always very important to me). And they come in a cute little matching drawstring bag (I still use mine now for keeping snacks in when we’re out!). They would make a great present too.
