We’re all set for our first family holiday abroad and, although it’s not til later in the year, I’ve already been buying some bits and bobs. Mostly because there are such good sales on at the moment with all the summer stuff included in them. So I thought as a departure from my usual word-heavy posts, I’d share some of my favourite buys which we’ll be taking on holiday with us.
This beautiful little romper is from Zara. I must admit, even though we have one in our town centre, I hardly ever venture in there as it’s not somewhere I buy clothes from for myself. But I’m glad I did as this is absolutely lovely and it was on sale too so it was a bargain. Alexandra will probably wear this on the evenings and then we’ll pop some tights and a cardigan on when she wears it at home!
Another romper, this time from good old Primark. I love a navy and white sailor type look and this was only £3 so well worth it. I think this will look lovely if we go on a little day out while we’re over there.
T-shirts are a staple of anyone’s wardrobe so Alex always has a good selection in every size (all the bits here are 12-18 months which is the size she’s just about to go into). The grey and pink pack is from H&M and the three pack is from Asda, both in the sale so just a couple of pounds each.
What’s not to love about two dresses for £5? These are again from Primark, one of the best places I’ve found for cheap stuff which still looks great. It’s not like you have to worry about them wearing out when they’re only in them for a couple of months! These will get plenty of use at home too though, as they’ll match with her tights and cardigans.
Alex has already got a normal swimsuit for age 12-18 months but I was worried about her being in the pool with so much skin exposed so this set is perfect. It’s Disney Baby but was on the sale at Sports Direct. I love the fact it comes with a little hat that will cover the back of her neck while she’s in the pool. She’ll also get plenty of use out of this at home as we go swimming every Friday.
This H&M dress I found in the sale is a-fricking-dorable. I love the little frills, the fact it comes with its own built in little romper bit so you can keep it classy on holiday nights without your nappy hanging out and it’s also got a lovely little hat which will match some of her other outfits too!
This is possibly my favourite thing ever. This hooded towel will be ideal to pop her in when she gets out the pool and to carry her back up to the apartment in. It’s a little big for her at the moment as it’s one-size (from Sports Direct but again official Disney) but it will last for years!
When the baby doesn’t take any notice of the fact you’re trying to take photos!
And then decides she needs to pose!
