Well summer has definitely crept up on me this year and to be honest took me completely by surprise last week. My two year old has no summer clothes or shoes that fitted her from last year so I had to dash online pronto and order her clothes suitable for the heat. I also stocked up on swimwear as I’m totally aware that by the end of June the shops will sell out of all their cute stock!! Oh and as her new sister Penelope Rae has finally arrived (just 12 days late!) I obviously had to buy her a few baby bits for our holiday later in the summer including the obligatory matching outfits – LOVE IT!!

First up I spotted these sweet floral sunsafe suits. (3 months to 6 years) (Next £13) They are pretty and practical and you can get the matching hats too. (I did!)  Can’t wait to see the girls matching in these!!

This dinosaur beach poncho also from Next (9 months to 10 years) is super cute and perfect for the beach! (Next £15)

I bought my daughter some of these Saltwater sandals last year and they lasted so well I have repurchased in the size up this year. This gold colour goes with everything and they are waterproof too. While you are there do take a look at the adult versions too. I am soooo tempted. (Smallable £50)

I also spotted this floatsuit by the swimwear brand Suneva which would be ideal for holidays by the pool. It’s such a great design if your little one isn’t the most confident of swimmers. £43 from Alex and Alexa.

For extra shade for your baby this summer. This stripy sunhat in soft organic cotton from Polarn O Pyret isideal with the little straps and so stylish too! (House of Fraser £12)

For older girls I couldn’t resist including this flamingo swimsuit. I love the side frills and polka dot trim and it’s a bargain! (Accessorize £12)

Happy Holidays
