AD: Oscar & Archie’s Alex And Alexa Holiday Wardrobe & 25% off Sale VIP Code

Today as I sit in my garden it’s 32 degrees, it is lovely to come home from our holiday to such lovely weather. It definitely lessens the blow. We spent two weeks in Mexico which is such a beautiful country and then flew to Washington DC and then stopped off in Philadelphia on the way to New York. Packing for the boys is always great fun and organising lovely outfits for them to wear in the evenings as well as swimwear and day wear. Oscar being nine now likes to choose his bits off of the Alex And Alexa website himself and when I can I try and get the boys matching pieces too.

I have shopped with Alex And Alexa for years and throughout the year when the seasons change their website is my go to shop to update the boys wardrobes and find really lovely pieces for special occasions. Often as sizing on most items is very generous plus the quality is amazing some bits last for two years and all of Oscar’s bits gets passed down to Archie. Some of the items in this post we kindly gifted to us, Any gifted pieces will be written under the photos, the rest I purchased myself.

Alex And Alexa have a huge sale running at the moment with thousands of gorgeous pieces at discounted pieces with more being added daily! They have kindly offered my readers a VIP code which will get you 25% of all sale items with an £80 spend! Please read full terms and conditions at the bottom of this post. Valid from 00.01 GMT 25th July 2019 through to 23.59 GMT 29th July 2019

Here are some of my favourite pieces in their sale. I will be grabbing lots of bits for the boys!

For both Oscar and Archie’s holiday/Summer wardrobes I always get polo shirts, t shirts, swim shorts, flip flops or slides, trainers and shorts.

One of my favourite matching outfits for the boys was this one. Tan coloured GANT chino shorts (£45)  which are a staple piece as they go with so many t shirts and polo shirts that they have. Teamed with this gorgeous Burberry Navy and Check Jeff Polo shirt (£85), Oscar and Archie looked very smart. In the evening they tended to wear their Tom’s slip on espadrilles (with socks, much to my dismay) which are great for holidays and again go with everything.

During the days the boys lived in swim shorts as other than breakfast, lunch and dinner they spent the rest of the time in the pool. Oscar choose these Moncler navy logo swim shorts (£100) himself as he loves the brand and along with his Winter coat has a few bits from this brand. He loves wearing slides during the Summer and last Summer he had a lovely Moschino pair which are now only £39.90 in the sale but this year choose a pair of Burberry Black Furley Slides instead. These are £120. Yes that’s a black Iguana on the grass behind him, they were all around our resort.

A more casual evening style was this one. A lovely Gucci Charcoal Tiger Logo Print T-Shirt (£135) teamed with Ralph Lauren mid washed Denim shorts. (These are in the sale for £48.30). On his feet he has a pair of Black Nike Huarache’s. (£65) Archie has the same shorts on, with this cute Moschino Grey Selfie Bear Print T-Shirt which is £43.40 in the sale. I always buy on size bigger in Moschino.

Here’s another evening outfit with Oscar and Archie wearing the same Tan coloured GANT chino shorts (£45). Oscar is wearing a Fendi Black Roma Stamp Pique Polo which was £190 but is in the sale for £133. He choose this polo himself as he liked the yellow Fendi stamp. Archie is wearing a Burberry Claret Hammond Polo with Dropped Back Check Hem (£85) which I love. I love the Burberry check detailing on the back hem of the shirt.

Polo Shirts – Gifted

I love the Gucci polo shirts and t shirts for boys this season. There are lots of different designs as well to choose from. My favourite polo shirt is the Gucci Pale Blue Logo Collar Polo Shirt (£145). The collar detailing is lovely! Matched with their  Ralph Lauren mid washed Denim shorts I think it’s a lovely outfit! Excuse Archie’s Ukulele as he had just brought it with his holiday money from his grandparents and hasn’t stopped playing it since.

I also got the Gucci White Branded Collar Pique Polo (£145) which he is wearing here with a pair of blue chino shorts from GAP (£18) Again these chino shorts go with everything and fit really well. I opted against getting the same shirt for Archie just in case he spilt something down it! Instead I chose this lovely BOSS Navy Contrast Hugo Boss Sleeve Logo Polo (£65) which he wore with his Ralph Lauren mid washed Denim shorts.

Polo Shirts & Navy Chino Shorts – Gifted

You can never have enough swimwear on holiday and I always take at least three or four pairs each. Oscar has a couple of pairs of these BOSS Navy Logo Swim Trunks which are in the sale for £31.50. He finds them really comfortable and they wash really well. In fact the pair in this photo were brought last Summer and have lasted really well. Archie has on Moschino striped Bear swim shorts and a Land’s End Rash vest which are also from last year.

Another pair of Oscar’s swim shorts are these from Dolce and Gabbana (£95) I love their bold and colourful designs and always pick a pair each year. You can often get matching      t shirts too that go with the swim shorts which look great together. Another of Oscar’s swim shorts are these Burberry ones from a past season but there are still other styles available.

When we were in America the boys mostly wore t-shirts and shorts as it was so hot as they had a heat wave and in the evenings they wore their smarter polo shirts and chinos. In this photo Oscar and Archie are in the larger than life World famous FAO Schwarz toy store. Oscar has a BOSS t-shirt on from a previous season but there are a huge variety of others online and Archie is wearing a Gucci Grey Retro Logo T-Shirt (£120).

The Boys Summer Wardrobes From AlexAndAlexa.com

With only a couple of weeks until we go away to Ibiza, over the last month I have been putting together the boys swimwear, day and evening outfits and making sure I have everything I need for them whilst we are away. So I wanted to show you The Boys Summer Wardrobes From AlexAndAlexa.com.

I have always brought a lot of Oscar and Archie’s clothes from AlexAndAlexa.com as I like buying higher end clothing for them and the service when buying from Alex And Alexa has always been second to none! The boys also both modelled for a collaboration with Stokke and Alex and Alexa a few months ago and the array of boys and girls clothes there for the children to wear were gorgeous!


They sell a huge range of top designer brands such as Burberry, Dolce and Gabbana, Kenzo, Fendi, Hugo Boss and loads more. They also have an amazing sale running at the moment and for a limited time only you can get an extra 15%off the sale using the code AA15!

From the clothes I am about to show you some of them I have brought myself and Alex and Alexa also kindly sent me a few bits for each of the boys as well.

A pair of shorts that Oscar has had for awhile is these lovely blue camouflage ones from Stella McCartney. They go with a lovely crisp white tee or a nice shirt in the evening and are a great pair of shorts to have in his wardrobe as I can team it up with various tops and Oscar will get lots of wear out of them in the evenings on holiday. They are currently reduced from £55 to £41.30 and then don’t forget you can use the extra 15% off code too!


Another pair of shorts that are great to have are a beige pair of chino shorts. There are lots to chose from but my favourite were the Burberry Taupe Chino shorts as they have a great fit and go well with  a smart tee or a lovely shirt, especially a plain linen one. They are reduced from £80 to £64. I’ve put it with the Burberry Blue check pocket tee which I have for both of the boys as I like some of their clothes to be matching. Again it is reduced, from £50 to £40.


I brought a couple of pair of swimming shorts for Oscar as he asked for some ‘big boy’ ones like Daddy and I got the Burberry Bright Blue Check Swim Shorts which you can get in a few different colours and the Hugo Boss BOSS Blue Swim Shorts which again come in other colours too. Both of these are in the sale at the moment and the Burberry ones are £55.30 and the BOSS ones are £36.


For one of Archie’s evening outfits I picked the Burberry Navy Classic Check Shorts which are £56 reduced from £70 and again will go with shirts and tees and he can wear them on a few evenings whilst on holiday with different tops. One of the tees I have got it the Burberry ‘White Use Your Head Beefeater Print Junior Tee’ which I think is really cute. Burberry have some lovely tees this season with fun graphics on them like Thomas the bear and the Full English breakfast Summer tee which are great fun!


I like the boys to match on a few occasions when we are away and having a 5 year age gap between them can often prove difficult to find nice matching items on the high street. With designer clothing this is never really an issue as they have the same pieces in loads of different sizes. I wanted to find a nice evening shirt for them both and absolutely love the Burberry Pale Blue Check Short Sleeve Shirt. There is a range of different colours in this design but I picked the blue as it will go well with the taupe chino shorts that they have. The shirt was £70 and is now reduced to £56. As you can probably tell I am really loving the boys Burberry clothing this season.



I also got a Hugo Boss tee for Archie which is worn a few times already and can be worn in the day or with his chino shorts in the evening. I love the stripes in the bright green and blue and think it is a really great item for his Summer wardrobe which can be put with lots of different shorts or trousers.


As well as the boys having a pair of Havaianas for holiday and some Tom’s Canvas shoes I wanted to get them each a pair of smart trainers for the evening and they will last for the whole Summer into Winter. The Burberry Heacham velcro trainers are to die for and I got a pair of the black ones for Oscar which were £135. They also do them in a gorgeous baby blue colour which I will get for Archie. I did pick Archie up some BOSS jelly sandals last year in the Summer sale and they finally fit him now.



Last but not least, Oscar loves his new baseball caps from Mini Rodini. He has the Light Green Lion Embroidered Cap and the Off White Music cap which are both £26. Then to keep their little eyes protected from the Sun the boys each have a pair of Zoobug Sunglasses which are really funky. Oscar has the Blue Camouflage Round Sunglasses which were £60 and are now reduced to £42 and Archie has the Black and White Clubmaster Baby Sunglasses which were also £60 and are now reduced to £48.



As you can probably guess I absolutely love the AlexandAlexa.com website and wouldn’t shop anywhere else when picking up the boys some designer clothes! I have also had a sneak preview of their Autumn/Winter 2017 collection and it is all totally amazing, so watch out for that going on their website very soon!
