We are really lucky that both NotBlondeHusband's parents (and their respective partners) help us out with Blondie Boy. Before we went on holiday BB's Grandma took him shopping with her while both of us were at work. He actually is a pretty good shopper (it is in his genes) and while out he picked out an entire outfit all by himself.
When I heard he'd picked out an entire outfit all by himself I wasn't expecting much but the kid can coordinate! It has all of his favourite things and was very holiday appropriate.
Route 66 Tee
Yellow Cargo Shorts
Shark Print Beach Shoes
(all Marks and Spencer)
First off how much do I love my kid for being bang on trend with bright yellow shorts? The beach shoes were perfect for the ocean as while Le Brasilia has a sandy beach it is really pebbly right where the tide comes in so it protected his tootsies. It is also way easier to walk on hot sand in beach shoes than flip flops!
You had to know with Blondie Boy that cars would be involved somehow so it doesn't surprise me that he picked this Route 66 themed t-shirt. What is really cool is it is a lift the flap tee. So there are little surprise designs under flaps scattered around the tee. How cool is that?
He was very proud of his purchases and I think I might have to let him pick out outfits for himself more often! Do you pick out your children's clothes or do you let them style themselves?
