We have already been lucky enough to escape for a week to Corsica with Mark Warner Holidays this Summer, and it has really whet our appetite for our whole family break to Lakitira, Kos in the October half term - we are counting down the days!
I have been buying little bits and pieces for our holiday for E as she has had a bit of a growth spurt this Summer and needs a wardrobe top-up, especially of things suitable for an Autumn sunshine getaway. My favourite stores are H&M and Pumpkin Patch for kids clothes at the moment and I have taken full advantage of recent sales and offers.
My first holiday purchases were from Pumpkin Patch earlier in the year. I bought a long sleeved Hibiscus pattern Rash set in 'bubblegum' for the bargain price of £11.78, these gorgeous red striped board shorts for £5 and a funky pair of round sunglasses for £3.
My next purchase was more recently in another of their fab sales, where I picked up a Daisy print playsuit for £9, a pretty bunting print dress also for £9, a deep violet border flower print skort for £5, a cute pair of mid length white shorts for £5, and two lovely peplum tank tops - one in white, one in lime sorbet - for only £3 each. I bought all of these items in age 6 so with any luck they will still fit E well into next Spring/Summer.
With sun safety being a paramount concern, I bought E a Rash Vest by No Fear for the bargain price of £5.25 from Sports Direct. The children will need to have t-shirts that cover their shoulders as part of their childcare essentials for the MW holiday clubs so I've bought one for each of them, E loves hers as it's her favourite colour - pink!
