Lily's Summer Fashion Wardrobe

If you have been following my blog for the fast few years, each year I do a new summer collection of the clothing I have bought Lily for her holidays. It is one of my favourite things to do is shop for pretty summer little items and accessories and is a great opportunity to buy Lily some new dresses. I never go mad with buying but of corse, each year she gets a little bit bigger and so each year I need new things. 

So, here is the selection I have bought Lily this year. 

1. New Summer Hat and Shoes. 
The hat, Lily spotted at the counter as we were paying for something in Primark, she just picked it up and said mummy please can I have this, and she looked so cute in it that I could just not resist saying yes. It was only around £3.50 to so a bargain and I just had to get it. As for the little shoes, Lily has now gone up a whole size into 7's. So that means a whole new set of shoes. I got these ones from Show Zone for £7.99.


2. New Sunglasses 
Lily does love her sunglasses, but they are also one thing that I can never find around the house. So I have bought her 2 new pairs of sunglasses from Primark. The white ones are plastic  so then they don't get damaged on the beach and then the others are for nice walks and times we are not going near sand. Both pairs were only about £3.50.


3. Mermaid Hat  
Okay so Lily already has a hat but this one suited her so much that we just had to buy it. It works nicely with her colourful summer clothing she has and will make a nice alternative to the other hat. This was also bought at primark and was also around £3.50


4. Socks
Its a new summer essential to buy new socks for a holiday right? Lily likes wearing socks, even with sandals she wants to have socks on. So I picked up lots of pairs of socks that would look great with trainers and sandals for the summer. Again, another Primark bargain with some only being £2.50 a pack. 


5. Vests 
A lot of Lily's vests are all getting very small and also show under a lot of her clothing, thats why I have bought these thin strap vests. Again from Primark. They are thin enough for under her outfits and also perfect for sleeping in if she gets to hot. I love the colourful designs on them too. 


6. Dresses 
 Finally something to show you from another store. I picked up these 2 cute dresses from Boots. It was 3 dresses for 12 pounds and so bought these 2 and the other in the second photograph. I loved the colours in them and the blue works nicely for a night time dress as well as daytime. The thing I like about the style of the first 2 dresses is that after she has grown out of them as a dress, they work perfectly as a top.
The third dress I loved because of the seaside scene at the bottom. It is perfect for out holiday as we are going to the seaside. 



7. Shorts  
Lily still fits into a lot of her shorts from last year, but she chose these ones because she likes the ice cream design on them. These were also from Primark, i'm not sure how much they were now but they were only cheap and so perfect for playing on holiday in. 


8. New Hoodie 
Last but not least is a new hoodie. We always have one or 2 colder days on holiday and there is always the sea breeze to contend with. I loved the nautical feel to this hoodie and thought it was perfect for the holiday. This cost me about £5 and was from a local discount store. 


Have you got some new clothing for your child's holiday? 

Which of the above items do you like the best?

  7. Socks :- They look nice, summer colours i.e. Bright and Beautiful. Lily seems to be sensitive in nature. Having recently worn comfortable sandles on a day out in the sunshine. Sore, sore feet on arrival at home :- Reason - blisters on sole of feet. So may try out wearing cotton socks on next similar occasion, at least for part of the day. In an attempt to hopefully avoid blisters on my feet.

  9. New Hoodie :- Great choice, as will go well with lots of outfits. Really practical, as temperature varies. Lily will look great in her summer clothes, and be comfortable too. Cotton is so practical for summer days. Lovely colourful outfits for summer outings, etc.
