Girls are easy to dress (dd sorted..) BUT I struggle with boys/ds..

I like the idea of a suit but not sure if I want it more casual. By that I mean smart long shorts...I also like the idea of sandals (like birkenstocks but no idea if comfy for kids and for boys..?) BUT thats the style im after..

Dh not so ken on sandals, think they are a bit <whispers> poncy shock. Thats only coz he chooses to let his trotters sweat in trainers and shoes...dh is not a flip flop/sandals man..grin.

So come me...seen a few things in next & m&s but I would like something that bit more wow iykwim...

Monsoon, Vertbaudet and La Redoute are good for this sort of thing - I'll see what I can find...

A suit?

my ds have been to several weddings as toddlers and have always worn beige coloured linen shorts with a smart short sleeved shirt white ankle socks and navy blue/brown clarks type shoe sandals.

I got my ds a lovely wee linen type suit out of Next, beige & a white short sleeve shirt, no tie, £25 for a wedding last year, will have a wee look to see if they have anymore similar this year

More beige trousers/outfit

Cute stripy shorts

PlumBumMum Mon 15-Jun-09 20:56:21

this is it, cute but casual

JackieNo Mon 15-Jun-09 20:58:31

More shorts

shhhh Mon 15-Jun-09 20:58:48

Yeah, thats what im after nickschick BUT think I prefer minus the socks..

JackieNo, spot on..grin. Love the suit as smart but casual...also love the 1st outfit..well the shorts anyway. Not keen on grandad style colars..

Right, so a suit or shorts..hmm..the suit is lovely esp in white BUT think he will be more comfy in shorts..?

Also, anyone bought birkenstocks for the lo's..? I have never worn adult ones and never thought of them for the dk's but esp the girls ones, look so cute. Are they comfy.?

dd & pbm, looked at NEXT, they have a beige one but im not so keen..

look on ebay for little linen suits - like this. Lovely with some brown sandals like these

I love the idea of Birks, but think they might be too hard-these are cute though:

PlumBumMum Mon 15-Jun-09 21:02:46

nowt in boden...

This is what my DS is wearing to a wedding next week. He is always dressed a bit edgy ok so-- i'm a twat and I wouldn't like for him to wear anything that isn't him, sooo we have gone for the items linked below, which are not adgy, but still cool IMO.

No Added Sugar Bovver Shirt

Next longline linen shorts in brown

Brown footbed sandals

Disclaimer..I don't normally set foot in Next and these are the first items DS has had from there (I think). The shirt helps pull it all together and he looks smart, but still 'cool as'. blush for being a twat.

missb,lovely outfits but not liking grandad style shirts...Those are the birkenstocks I saw btw, also seen them minis the back strap but not sure if suitable for a 2&4 yr old..? Think may be better with strap as shown.?

off to check jojo now

suwoo Mon 15-Jun-09 21:15:09

Forgive my typos and post that doesn't make much sense hmm

talkingbook Mon 15-Jun-09 21:42:33

Aster boys sandals are good.Smart and well made.

shhhh Mon 15-Jun-09 21:57:43

makes sense suwoo ! looked at those sandals..quite interested in them.

BTW,that outfit is lovely and similar to what im after...

suwoo Mon 15-Jun-09 22:14:04

That is what I deduced from your OP. He looks gorgeous in it too. He is skinny so the slim fitting tops look fab on him. He likes the sandals too, so win-win.
