I absolutely love holiday shopping for the girls, but increasingly I have found I just need a few key items to get us through the holiday. How many times have you packed everything only to find they wear favourites?
We were really excited to work with JoJo Maman Bebe for our holiday this year to pull together an almost ‘capsule’ holiday wardrobe for the girls, the essential items I thought they would need for the 10 days away. Of course, we had other clothes but these for me are the items we couldn’t have done without.
Two floral dresses
Amelie is a dress girl, she rarely wants to wear anything else, so a good quality dress for both of the girls’ for evenings or daytime adventures is essential for us. These gorgeous floral essential dresses are so easy to wear and look great! They are the perfect length for them to be able to play but cover up as well. The dresses are made from a really soft cotton, perfect for hot holiday days and we found these being worn a lot on our holiday. You can find these dresses in a range of prints, perfect in case of any spillages at the dinner table!
White summer sandals
A pair of sandals is a wardrobe staple for me in the summer, but also now the girls. We loved these leather sandals, with a (what felt like) a super comfortable cushioned sole and a pretty flower print. The girls wore these in both the evening and in the day and with velcro fastenings they were easy to put on and will hopefully last over the Summer.
I absolutely love these flamingo swimming costumes Evie’s has an inbuilt swim nappy which gives a grown-up look as there is no need for a nappy underneath and Amelie’s is a standard swimming costume. They fitted both of the girls beautifully and looked gorgeous.
To match their swimming costumes the girls both had a flamingo print flap sun hat to help protect their heads. These are the best thing for days on the beach or around the pool. The long flap at the back helps to avoid sunburn on their necks and the flap keeps their faces shaded. They wore these all the time and I couldn’t be without them!
Lightweight canvas shoes
Amelie had a pair of Canvas Summer Shoes which were perfect for more active days or for breakfast/lunches. They are lightweight, have easy to fasten straps and were really comfortable for her in the heat.
I loved all of the girl’s outfits from JoJo Maman Bebe, now we just need another holiday to use them again!
