Clothing review – SS16 Zara Baby Boy x

Zara Boys 2016

Its official, we have banished (well Daddy has) the “boys” tights and Little Monkey is now embracing big boys pants.  Devastated to be packing away his little Shakespeare’s,  I have to admit I relished the opportunity to shop.

So having a nose at Zara Boys spring summer collection online I did a little collective haul of key transitional pieces.   & as usual they didn’t disappoint… 

Showing off my new white floorboards x 

You know I love a good old stripe and this season they came in the shape of cable knits, drop crotch joggers and super soft sweats.  Favourite pieces included a blue and white little knit with contrast elbow patches and knitted joggers with the same patches (perfect for my little crawler).  

The little stripe knit was finished off with little buttons to the neck and looked super snuggly with the enzyme washed indigo joggers.  I loved that Henry still looked like my little baby in the soft tones, but so grown up in his little outfits.  

Even Bjorn has style x 

I find Zara can be a little pricey when it comes to the knitwear and outerwear, however the printed tees are reasonably priced.  This season they came in an array of prints and designs, however I added the below painted create t-shirt and a little stripe number (obvs).  Other favourites included dip dye powder blue joggers that also look gorgeous with the little stripes.

Some quick tips….

  • Zara boys trousers come up short in the leg (buy a size up)
  • Look after the knitwear and it will look after your little one.  They wash lovely, however avoid popping them in the dryer 
  • If you invest in one thing, buy the crossover white vests, I’m still obsessed with them and they wash beautifully 
  • Always have a nose at the girls section (or boys) as they sometimes have lovely pieces that are unisex.  In particular stripe knits, hareem trousers and little tees.
