Save time, squirms and burns by popping this eye catching swimming costume on first thing in the morning and kids can play happily all day safe in the knowledge that they will not burn (obviously you need to cream the rest of them…we’re working n our magic skills but they aren’t quite that good yet!)  Leggings are also available in the same print for full body sun protection.

COMFORTABLE COOL – Kids live in sandals on holiday and two pairs really can be good for all occasions. These handmade leather Varca sandals are soft but sturdy and totally  timeless. Pair them with a dress, skirt or shorts and they will finish off a summer outfit with style.

meduse jelly shoes
PLASTIC FANTASTIC – that’s not normally a phrase that we would use but these 100% recyclable shoes Meduse Jelly shoes really are fab. Perfect for everyday wear and ideal for splashing through the shallows and crabbing on the rocks – just wash them off at the end of the day and they are as good as new.

And for the boys…

I’m not sure about your boys but for ours comfort is key but they definitely have an opinion on style too and don’t want to just be fobbed of with a dino print tee while their sisters get all the stylish  options.

So here is a little capsule collection that will keep them happy, comfy and cool.rylee cru cocoon child independent

I’m not a fan of cartoon clothes (Peppa pants and Paw Patrol socks is about as far as I can stretch it for my poor kids) but I do love a hand drawn illustation and no one does them quite like Kelli Murray at Rylee and Cru. These playful tigers are the perfect mix of whimsical , creative and cute and are actually perfect to hand down (or up) to sites too.

Why take shorts AND dungarees when you can take this awesome combo of both. Simply wear the Tootsa Macginty Luis shorts as shorts or button on the bib to create stylish dungarees. these also come in thick pinstripe blue. can be All pre-washed for comfort and care.
