Next – Toddler Summer Clothing Haul

Summer is finally (almost) here and what better than to share with you some of the beautiful dresses that are on offer in Next at the moment..

I am usually very much a leggings and tshirt kind of person when it comes to dressing Robin, so actually branching out and getting her some pretty summer dresses is a big leap for me, I am always worried her beautiful skin would get burnt in the sun but in the long run its better to be cool with a nice flowy dress than be stuck in a skin tight pair of sparkly leggings..


Purple Check Tassel Dress


Blue Frill Sleeve


Denim Mid Blue Flamingo Shirt Set


Multi Spot Dress


Lilac Unicorn Dress


Lemon Print Dress


Silver Buckle Corkbed Sandles


Some of the dresses I got for Robin are just simply beautiful, I think my favorite of the lot of them has to be the Lemon Print dress, its just so pretty and can work so well for a wedding outfit, its got this adorable little collar which when Robin wears it with a cardigan sits over the top of it and just looks so adorable.

I can see many of these looking so pretty in the autumn and winter too, with some jeans or tights layered with long sleeve vests, the only one I cant seem to love is the flamingo shirt one, the legs are far to short for my liking and I prefer a much longer leg, and of course with the fact that Robin is tiny enough as it is, it doesn’t sit in the right spot on her body to make it look right, but I know we will make plenty use of the thin shirt that came with the set.

The little sandals are perfect, Its really hard to find shoes that I 1, like on Robin and 2, fit her properly, I do like the look of the jelly shoes but you need to wear them with socks or the rubber, rubs onto the skin and can cause cuts but I do think they are really cute.

I have seen to many more wonderful cute dresses I want to get Robin for when we go away and for the summer in general, her wardrobe is mainly autumn/winter stuff as she is still very much a tiny girl and I didn’t feel the need to get anything new as everything still fits her perfectly fine in the 12 -18 size but the weather changes everything.

What exciting things have you seen in the shops lately for the little ones? or perhaps for yourself?

Until next time

    I’m also a lover of leggings and t-shirt for Arya, it’s just easier. But dresses are too and I’ve recently bought quite a few for the summer. I have the grey version of the unicorn dress!

    Your photos are gorgeous! I love Next but I don’t buy too much on there for Emmy. She’s 6 months and just grows too quickly to justify their prices! You’ve picked some gorgeous pieces xx

      thank you ^_^ I didnt buy many clothes when she was smaller, just their sleepsuits as they had the handle built in scratch mitts, its only when they get older do the kids take all your money for clothes haha
