Summer Holiday Shopping Part 3 – Swimming Shorts

Today is the last post in my Summer Holiday Shopping Series, with a round-up of the coolest swimming shorts for little boys. If you are heading off on holiday over coming weeks or simply want to make the most of a paddling pool and sprinkler system in the garden, a pair of these shorts will  make your little man stand out for all the right reasons.

With winter months approaching in Dubai (we’ll get there by October), I am seriously considering snapping up numbers 5, 6 and 8 for Stanley to wear at the pool and beach. And with prices like that, you can’t really argue.

Happy shopping – and I’ll be back in the next few days with something completely different!

Rodnik for Made.com

I’m always looking for inspiration for the boy’s room – and this Rodnik collection for Made.com has definitely caught my eye. The pieces aren’t cheap, but if you have the funds your little boy’s bedroom would make a serious style statement. The collection was created by fashion designer  Philip Colbert, aiming to unite pop art, fashion and furniture. I think they have done just that and I especially love the Shark Chair (although waking up and staring into the mouth of a Great White wouldn’t be as frightening as the price tag at a scary £449).

Here’s the collection – and if you keep scrolling, I have composed a selection of cheaper buys along the same theme at the bottom of this post (everything under £40, phew)…

Cool, huh? And I feel like you only need one statement piece to transform the room so there’s no need to bankrupt yourself buying it all.
