Guest Post: Cool Summer, Boys Summer Style Guide

April 27, 2011

We asked the lovely Amanda de Beaufort of coos & ahhs to guest blog for us about the ultimate toddler boy’s style guide for the summer. As the mother to a beautiful baby boy, Amanda tests products and hand picks gear and beautiful clothing which she reviews and shares on her blog (one of Babble’s top 50 Design Blogs for moms!).

See Amanda’s picks to be cool all throughout Summer…

Coos & Ahhs loves summer! Here is our style guide to keep your little boy cool and comfortable from June to August.

If you don’t have a wedding this June, it just means everyone you know got married last June. This outfit of great washable pieces can be worn though out the summer. I love a little button down with a pair of cotton or denim shorts!

From 4th of July cherry pie to lazy beach days, July is summer at it’s best! The summer collection from Bobo Choses pretty much captures the essence of  the season with sunshine shorts and adorable straw hats. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

Hot and sticky is what I think of August in NYC. This is the month to stay inside with the AC on and do an art project! Head out to the playground at sunset with these bright tees and matching sneakers.
