Cute Shorts for Little Ones.

Warm weather is on its way and I am filling in all of the holes in my children’s warm weather wardrobes. (I have perhaps overindexed on shortalls/jon jons for micro, especially with the recent Busy Bees sets I found on sale. I have a ton. But I don’t care! It may be one of the last summers I can squeeze him into them!) Below, a few of my favorite shorts for little ones this summer!

Shorts for Little Boys.

01. // 02. // 03. // 04. // 05. // 06.

I prefer a shorter length on micro, so these skew that way versus at/below the knee.

CADETS (01.) — GREAT COLORS, SHORT LENGTH, RUN REALLY SMALL (BUY A FULL SIZE UP)

PETITS VILAINS (02.)

TBBC SHEFFIELDS (03.) — LOTS OF MAGPIE MOMS LOVE THESE; HAD PLANNED ON ORDERING BUT SOLD OUT IN MICRO’S SIZE IN ALL COLORS AT THE MOMENT!

DRESSIER LINEN PAIR TO WEAR WITH BUTTON-DOWNS

THIS PAIR (04.) RUNS A BIT LONGER (TO THE KNEE) THAN I USUALLY PREFER, BUT THEY ARE ON THE SLIMMER SIDE AND COME IN GREAT COLORS, SO I HAVE A FEW PAIRS OF THESE FOR MICRO — LOOK POLISHED WITH LITTLE LOAFERS AND POLOS

REASONABLY-PRICED GINGHAM (05. — CHECK OUT THE CUSTOMER PICTURES IN THE REVIEWS — THEY LOOK LIKE A. GOOD LENGTH); ALSO HAVE SEERSUCKER

A LITTLE LONGER LEG BUT STILL ABOVE THE KNEE — CLASSIC SEERSUCKER

CLASSIC RLS IN WHITE OR KHAKI (06.)

THIS TWO-PACK SET PAIRED WITH CRISP WHITE LACOSTE POLOS

CANVAS SHORTS

To pair with shorts, I like aforementioned Lacoste polos, Busy Bees Henry tees in stripes or solids, and these boxier washed tees from Zara (I just ordered in the green and blue).

Shorts for Little Girls.

The Fashion Magpie Little Girl Shorts

01. // 02. // 03. // 04. // 05. // 06. // 07. // 08. // 09.

CPC is my absolute favorite shorts brand for mini — they are cut short (not baggy) and come in the most adorable prints, like these lemons (mini owned last summer) and timeless seersucker (05). You can occasionally find them on serious sale at Jojo Mommy!

A few others I love:

SCALLOPED AND IN GREAT COLORS (01.)

CHEERY FLORAL AND LIBERTY-ESQUE FLORAL (02.)

THESE ON-TREND CHAMBRAY ONES (03.)

THIS $12 PAIR IN A GREAT MELON COLOR (06.) – LOVE THE TRIM!

ADORABLE FLORAL PRINT

RED WHITE AND BLUE (07.)

LILLY P

FUN ROSEBUD PRINT (08.)

BUSY BEES SAILOR STRIPE (09.)

For an athletic short for a little lady, consider these popular Funtasia ones (they always sell out very quickly) and these vintage-looking Petits Vilains (look for less with these04.).

For wearing underneath dresses, I like these bike shorts or these solid-colored ones (I bought several pairs of these in white last summer and they still fit this year).

To pair with shorts, I like Lacoste polos (size up – this style runs small) or embellished white tops like this, this, and this.

P.S. More recent spring clothing finds, and some warm weather wardrobe picks for a boy.

P.P.S. Things I love about my daughter.

P.P.P.S. New mom must-haves.

    1. Ohh so cute! I love these. Hill had several jon jons from them that I absolutely treasured on him last summer. I hadn’t even realized they do shorts, too! Thanks!
