What I Wore Wednesday: Toddler Holiday Chic

We didn't get home until after midnight from France last Wednesday so I didn't get a post up in time for What I Wore for the first time! We had a great time at Eurocamp Le Grand Metairie but I'll get into that more in another post. We really just spent time together the three of us without tv or computers and with very little internet; it was fun to just hang out and play cards or dominos with NotBlondeHusband on the deck at night after Blondie Boy had gone to bed.


I'm pretty sure we all ate our body weight in baguettes and Blondie Boy discovered a love of French butter which he'd lick and eat off the baguette and then ask for more--he'd end up with a shiny butter face and need to be hosed down afterwards.


We kept it really casual  on holiday so my outfits really aren't worth a post. I wore several different Old Navy or Gap Vest Tops mixed with jeans or shorts--nothing exciting. So I will focus on what Blondie Boy wore because he is cuter than me anyway :)

Harajuku Lovers Tee-shirt
HM Skullie Shorts 
Polliwalks Sandals

I made him pose because I loved this outfit and knew I'd use it for What I Wore Wednesday! I just think he looks so cool but maybe I'm biased :)

puddle jumper swimming

If you have a toddler this is the coolest swim accessory EVER! Blondie Boy swam around by himself! There was a lazy river so he could just float and swim around and around and he loved it! He had so much fun at the pool and I can't recommend the Puddle Jumper enough!

Converse

Blondie Boy loves his Cincinnati Reds hat, LOVES it. When we were sitting outside Beauvais airport waiting for check-in to open a man and woman saw his hat and asked if we were from Cincinnati. It turned out they were from Kettering where my Grandma lives in Ohio. It is "small world" moments like these that I love! It is probably why I subconsciously almost always travel in Cincinnati Bearcat shirts :)


I also puffy-heart love these Converse. There is Velcro to the side of the tongue so they are easy on and off and no laces to trip over. Plus the turquoise are just a super fun colour; I got them at the outlet malls in Cincinnati; if you are ever near a Converse Outlet go because the deals are amazing!

Marks and Spencer Jeans


Umm is it just me or does he look majorly grown up here? This is when we were kicking it outside the airport waiting for check-in. He just totally looks like such a big boy to me in this photo. I also love this sweatshirt because you can't tell but it makes his blue eyes just pop ;)


What do you wear on vacation? Do you dress up or just keep it casual?

He is beautiful! And those pics of him are absolutely adorable. Reminds me of when my son was young & I took pics practically every time he breathed. :) Glad you guys had a good time!

Melaina25 said...

Your son is so cute! Love the outfits. I like to dress up when on vacation.

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

Your son looks adorable! All his outfits are cute!

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

I think I should perhaps have your children and you have mine!

Melaina25 said...

Why do you say that? :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! I'm a sucker for Chucks--reminds me of my grunge days :)

Melaina25 said...

Aww thanks! I can barely manage one just now :)

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! We were actually in transit on the 4th. We stopped at Omaha Beach on our way to the airport which seemed an appropriate thing to do :)

Melaina25 said...

The Harajuku Lovers collection for Target is amazing!

Melaina25 said...

Thank you x

Melaina25 said...

Aw thanks!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks we had a great time--more to come on the holiday :)

Melaina25 said...

I like to dress up when I'm on a vacation with NBH but when we are on a family vacation and going to the beach or pool I just can't justify it!

Melaina25 said...

Dude the vast majority of my iPhone memory is taken up by photos and videos of him! How old is your son now?

Melaina25 said...

i tend to keep it real and comfy. nothing too over the top on vacay! glad you had a great time in france!!

Melaina25 said...

oooh I love him! :) I try to stay casual on holiday, after all no-boy know you so its ok! x

Melaina25 said...

so handsome - I just love love his hair.

Melaina25 said...

He is SO cute! We live near Cincinnati so we are huge Reds fans and the boys each have a hat. :)

Melaina25 said...

What a cutie you have on your hands!
Ashley:)

Melaina25 said...

Your kids are cute. Glad you enjoyed your Holiday!

Melaina25 said...

My goodness, Blondie Boy could not possibly be any cuter!

Melaina25 said...

Cute! I love to get my kids dressed up too- much cuter than me!

Melaina25 said...

So cute, especially the pic with the red hat! The destination -- and weather, of course -- dictates my vacation wardrobe. I wore lots of layers (and hiking boots) when we visited Scotland one time in the spring; tunics and swimsuits in Thailand; and dressier layers and flat boots in Vienna in the late fall. Uh oh, now I want to plan another vacation.... ;)

It sounds like you had an amazing vacation! What I wear when I travel depends on where I'm going - when I'm in Europe I try to dress up a bit - in the fall or winter that means skinny jeans tucked into riding boots, a sweater/scarf/etc. In the summer a flowy skirt and pretty flats. But if I'm hiking or doing more active things, it's comfort all the way!

Melaina25 said...

I think I definitely dress up when on a city break (see my Swedish WIWW post) but we were at a big campsite so it just didn't make sense y'know?

Melaina25 said...

Just one kid but thanks :)

Melaina25 said...

Aww thanks! I grew up in Cincinnati so I'm a HUGE Cincinnati sports fan :)

Melaina25 said...

I think I'd have looked daft walking around a campsite in heels y'know?

Melaina25 said...

I love mixing it up on vacation and bringing my most creative outfits - most people will never see me again, so it is a great chance to try something new!

Melaina25 said...

I love that your WIWW posts have developed to include outfits for all the family :-) Really enjoyed this post.

Melaina25 said...

Those are most adorable children...absolutely cute! Thanks for stopping by my blog and inviting me over!

I'm loving the Converse - I'm a big converse fan as well! You could always link up for Trendy Toddler Tuesday - I'm hosting it for Maria for the next couple of weeks :) x

Melaina25 said...

Love Blondie boy's outfits! My little guy has a spider man hat that he wants to wear all. the. time. ;) Those turquoise converse are perfection. ;)

Melaina25 said...

What a dude! I like to be comfy on holiday, we are off to France for the same kind of holiday as you've just been on, but with Siblu holidays. Cannot wait!

Melaina25 said...

Aww thanks Tiffany :)

Melaina25 said...

Generally speaking only one of the two of us looks good at a time :)

Melaina25 said...

You always need layers in Scotland year round :) I was almost exclusively sundresses in Thailand.

Melaina25 said...

That is a fun way to think about it!

Melaina25 said...

Aww thanks--it is really when I don't have any good outfits over the week of myself that I feature BB but he has such a fab style :)

Melaina25 said...

Just the one kid but thanks! Hope you'll keep joining in :)

Melaina25 said...

Ooh give me a nudge on Twitter? I didn't know you were taking over while she was in Chile!

Melaina25 said...

Converse Outlet is the BEST thing ever!

Melaina25 said...

It was not something I'd have chosen on my own but we did have a good time. It was absolutely perfect for a toddler with amazing pools and a baby animal farm on site plus playgrounds, kids groups, etc.

Melaina25 said...

Aw thanks Ashley!

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! I get a lot of stick from some people but his hair is just so pretty :)

Melaina25 said...

Aw thanks! I just couldn't traipse around a campground in heels lol.

How can you not love a hit stylish dude with a superman t on?

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

Good! Sounds like it will keep my kids (4 and 1) amused.

Melaina25 said...

Soo cute!! The Reds Baseball cap look is adorable!

I've been meaning to get one of those puddle jumpers. Your little man is so stylish.

Melaina25 said...

gosh he is tremendously cute! looking good!

Melaina25 said...

Oh I LOVE this post, what a CUTIE he is!!! :)

Melaina25 said...

Aww thank you! I think he's pretty cute but I'm biased!

Melaina25 said...

Aw thanks Jane! He's much easier on the eyes than I :)

Melaina25 said...

I honestly can't recommend it enough! It allowed him to be independent and gave him a lot of confidence in the water :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks! Half of the outfit is from the US and half from the UK :)

Melaina25 said...

I love his hair too :)

Melaina25 said...

I hope y'all have a great time!

Melaina25 said...

such a cute little lad, and i love the way you dress him up - very stylish!
