I never thought I’d say it, but I think I love shopping for the boys more than I like shopping for myself, and summer shopping for them is just the best! I get all caught up in the cute little preppy boy polos and shorts, linen pants and oh the little boat shoes.
Today we’re partnering with Janie and Jack to share a couple of favorite looks for the summer sun. With our first big family beach vacation coming up, along with lots of summer lake weekends, I was really excited to pick a few pieces for the boys that would mix and match well, and create cute, preppy, put-together looks for everything we have coming up.
I’ve always loved shopping at Janie and Jack because not only is everything completely adorable, but the quality of their clothing is just fantastic and the details are amazing! Everything holds up so well and looks great whether we’re taking family photos or just going out to dinner on the patio.
I also have to say that I said I would NEVER dress my boys alike or in matching outfits. But, I have come to my senses a bit and, after seeing how darn cute it was, I’ve found that I’m often seeking cute little coordinating looks and it’s so nice to be able to shop at a spot that has collections for all ages that you can so easily coordinate.
If you’ve seen any photos of them, you know it goes without saying that Jackson and Dylan are SO different. Their coloring is different, their personalities are so different and, of course, their styles have surprised me in how different they are. Jackson’s little style is so much like his daddy’s. It’s preppy, easy and relaxed. We do a lot of blues and khakis with him. This cowl neck sweater was a perfect Jackson pick and I know he’ll wear it quite a bit on our summer weekend. He’s also a big fan of graphic tees, so the sailboat tee and its matching hat were right up his alley.
For Dylan, I love playing with a little bit more color in his outfits. These little orange linen shorts were the first thing I saw and “had to have” for him. They go well with navy, white and gray – and the little orange pops in this little tee are perfect with it.
Also, is baby seersucker quite possibly the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? I love this little jacket with Dylan’s outfit, and it’ll go well as a light layer with jeans, as well. And the hat. Don’t even get me started on the hat. I love both of my boys in hats and I think we’ve started a pretty good collection for both of them.
Be sure to check out the latest for both boys and girls at Janie and Jack. There are so many sweet pieces that you won’t want to miss!
Thank you to Janie and Jack for partnering on this post and for gifting us these outfits. And thank you for supporting the brands that I love and that make the HSS feed possible.
