A few weeks ago, our youngest was a little too brave on the summer camp monkey bars. In an attempt to jump from one high point to another, he broke both bones in his forearm.
He was such a champ. His father and I were barely holding it together as we went through setting first, a week in a splint, and then surgery with a metal plate and several screws. Little man? Well…once the worst was over he was only concerned with one thing: “Make sure my cast looks cool.” I’d say the cool factor was a success.
Suffice to say, this dude is ACTIVE. If he’s not running, he’s jumping. If he’s not jumping, he’s dancing. And, as school gets closer, we have to make sure his clothes can keep up with him.
When we started shopping for new school threads at Boden, he wanted something that was “cool” just like his cast. Luckily, Mini Boden knows that kids never sit still, and their clothes should hold up without sacrificing style.
The Lined Cargos are my favorite, by far. The inner lining is soft and insulated for when it gets colder here in Massachusetts and the cuffs roll up for added style. The zippered pockets provide plenty of space for all of his gear (and rocks he constantly picks up for his collection). The best part about Boden designs is that they easily switch styles: casual to sharp or warm weather to cool. Once the cast is off in a few weeks, we’ll add the Blue Stripe Oxford Shirt so he’s ready to go from collecting rocks to rocking his total look well into fall when the temperature drops.
So, what was HIS favorite part? Definitely the Leather High Tops. They’re trendy, but still rugged enough for this rambunctious six year old (excuse me…. six and a half).
