I’m already looking ahead to warmer weather and have been ordering items for micro’s summer wardrobe over the past week. (I’ve done a good job of stockpiling shorts and sundresses for mini, but have a lot of gaps for micro at the moment.) My inspiration? A tiny JFK Jr. with short shorts, a polo, and tousled hair — and throwback classics like overalls and jon-jons, too. Below, my favorite finds for this summer:
HARDING LANE HATS (03.)
LACOSTE POLOS (05.) IN NAVY, WHITE, AND PASTELS
SUN SAN SANDALS (06.)
WEEFARER SHADES (09.)
A few other finds…
LINEN PULL-ON PANTS (ON SALE)
A few looks I loved on micro when he was younger:
TBBC SUNSUIT (WITH A BIG OL MONOGRAM)
THESE GINGHAM BUBBLES ARE $17, COME IN RANGE OF COLORS, AND GREAT FOR EVERYDAY WEAR
*Sizing notes: The most urgent note is that Cadets shorts run very small. Hill is a tall boy (90th percentile height), but at the age of 12 months, I bought him a size 2T and he fit into them for maybe a handful of wears. I bought him a 3T for this summer, and I’m already anxious as to whether they will be too small for him. I would size a full size up.
In general, TBBC and CPC run on the large side, so I size down if there’s a question or between sizes.
Osh Kosh, Old Navy, Lacoste, Florence Eiseman, and Busy Bees run TTS. (Though I think the Busy Bees tees are pretty boxy, so there’s wiggle room — Hill is currently wearing both 18M and 24M in those tees and he’s 20 months.)
I would say Janie and Jack, RL, and Jacadi run just shy of TTS. Usually, Hill takes his true size in these, but if in question or between sizes, go up.
P.S. Swim for boys here.
P.P.P.S. On moving from 0-1 vs 1-2 children.
