The 20 best new baby & kids holiday buys
Has anyone not booked a vacation in the last few weeks?
I feel like everyone I know is off somewhere hot between now and April. Mostly over half-term (which is really soon – I feel like they only just went back to school) or Easter. Or in-between for those with pre-school age… We’ve just booked one for April, woohoo. Cannot bloody wait. But while the thought of delving into my own summer holiday wardrobe fills me with dread this soon after Christmas (and I’m a Jan baby so I don’t really stop with the eating chocolates and drinking wine till Feb) I am very excited to be thinking about my kids.
I love this time of year for kids shopping – shiny new spring/summer collections are dropping every single day – which means sunshine is a-coming. Two of my favourites for the odd treat (not cheap) have both just landed – Bobo Choses and The Animals Observatory, the latter’s summer koala suits for girls I just adore. See the one below. Isabella had one last year and it was one of my favourite items in her wardrobe. Whenever I could coax her out of a big princess dress to actually put it on. There are still of course loads of new spring collections to drop, I can’t wait to see the new ranges from Apolina and Rylee + Cru! And of course, the high street has some brilliant buys to.
So, I’ve compiled a little edit below of my favourite BRAND NEW summer holiday buys so far for anyone going away imminently. We went away in Feb last year and it was a nightmare trying to get good summer bits (which is one of the reasons I set up a little look) so I hope this helps anyone in the same situation. I haven’t included swimwear but you can check that out in the main swimwear galleries – links here – GIRLS, BOYS, BABY. And just a few bits of footwear because my go-to for sandals, especially at this time of year, is always Salt-Water. I’ve really edited this down (I had like, 50 products, ridiculous) so if you are looking for something else specific drop me an email/comment and I’ll help you out! I will also update all of my galleries with new stuff and more summer sections very soon. But there are still some good sales buys to be had…
