Dressing Toddlers Right for Summer and A Cool Giveaway from My Baby Clothes Boutique

Cooling Off with Summer Clothes

The summers are well upon us and the Indian summer is not only long but also harsh and hot. So, it is natural that we choose clothes for our toddler that are comfortable, cool and yet cute.

Here are some of my summer wardrobe tips for toddlers and preschoolers:

Dress Light

This goes without saying. The lesser the clothes, the better it is. Some of our favourite outfits for summer include – sleeveless tunic-style dresses, shorts, skirts and tees. Simple, no-fuss, cool clothes!

Choose the Right Material

Cotton, especially lightweight cotton, is our favorite for clothes for summer. It is absorbent, breathable, dries quickly and doesn’t require much maintenance.

Colors for Summer

As much as I know that darker colors block the sun rays better than the lighter ones, I just can’t dress my li’l girl in dark shades. So, we choose pastels that can be mixed with darker colored skirts or shorts or vice-versa. So, we have a sleeveless pink top paired with a pair of brown shorts or a navy tee paired with a white skirt.

Summer Accessories for Toddlers

A sunhat is a MUST for our daughter. I’d love to get her some toddler sunglasses too but haven’t been able to find any god quality ones here but if you can find a good pair of sunglasses, pick ‘em up and keep those lil’ eyes safe from the sun’s rays. She also has a small parasol that she loves to carry when we head out in the afternoons. And a swimsuit is a must-have to make cooling off at the pool or beach a fun way to spend time under the summer sun.

And now for an exciting giveaway to help you get some cool clothes for your toddler’s summer wardrobe:

I had the opportunity to review toddler clothes from My Baby Clothes Boutique a few months ago for Untrained Housewife and I loved them. { read my review here}. My Baby Clothes Boutique is an online store filled with the cutest baby clothes, hats, headbands and more! The outfit I picked for my daughter not only looks cute but is also stylish and super-easy to maintain. Plus, I got it in under $25.

Naturally I asked them if they would be willing to sponsor a giveaway for The Mom Writes’ readers as well. So, one lucky The Mom Writes reader will win a $25 Gift Card to shop for at My Baby Clothes Boutique.
