Kid’s Summer Lookbook

Kid's Summer Lookbook

Quite a few of you seemed to enjoy my Wedding Lookbook which I published back in May, so I thought that I would follow up with something similar, but this time showcasing kid’s clothes for the summer holidays. Well boy’s clothes…(so if you are looking for any pretty little dresses you won’t find any here!) I really enjoy clothes shopping for my sons and my eldest in particular has some lovely outfits that were very reasonably priced. During our recent trip to Cyprus I decided to shoot some pics and the result was this Kid’s Summer Lookbook sponsored by absolutely nobody and bought all by me. 

I shop at a variety of highstreet stores mainly H&M, Gap and Debenhams. When it comes to quality and sizing, I find that Gap has the best pieces for babies. However, for some reason a lot of their older kids range, particular their summer stock, isn’t as exciting. We do have a few snazzy T-shirts and shorts but the material is quite thick and so most of my two-year-old’s summer wardrobe comes from H&M.

 H&M have a fantastic and very large range of kids summer clothes at very affordable prices. Their recent collaboration with illustrator Katie Scott resulted in some very unique animal print designs that I just didn’t come across anywhere else. We’ve got several T-shirts and shorts from their Basic range as well as thin hoodies and lightweight trousers. While the material is not as high quality as some stores, I haven’t had a problem with clothes fading or shrinking in the wash and for such low prices, it wouldn’t be a major catastrophe anyway!

The other main store I shop at is Debenhams. Designers such as Jasper Conran and Ted Baker have really raised the bar when it comes to fun and exciting kids clothing. What’s more Debenhams have regular sales so I try and grab a bargain whenever I can!

So let’s check out the outfits! Where items are no longer in stock I’ve linked to something similar.

If any of the links no longer work or the item is out of stock do have a look at what else there is in that store as there will no doubt be something similar. Gap in particular seem to sell the same range each year.

I really hope that this post has inspired/helped anyone looking for a new summer wardrobe for their children and don’t forget to grab a bargain where you can! Happy Summer Holidays!
