5 Summer Fashion Essentials for New Mums

Many of you will be setting off on holiday in the next few weeks. If you’re anything like me, it will be quite a stressful time. Not only are you dealing with all of the usual things with the kids, but you are also away from home, possibly in another country, managing hot sweaty children while being hot and sweaty yourself! The last thing on your mind are your own summer fashion essentials!

We usually go away at Feb half term when the weather is ok but a bit chilly! I used to enjoy great holidays in the UK when I was little so I’m really looking forward to making some more amazing memories with Mia and Lottie!

Even though we aren’t going on a ‘hot’ holiday, I have still been looking at swimsuits so here are some of my top finds for those of you who maybe like me, have little ones and just the word bikinis fills you with dread!

So, Swimwear. Let’s face it, when you’ve had a baby, the last thing you want to be wearing is something that shows off your stomach. I’m quite proud of mine and the fact I have had 2 children, but my tummy is still a little wobbly post-birth, so I recommend going for a tummy control swimsuit. Hide the wobbly bits and flaunt the busty bits!

I have never liked them. I’m not really sure why. They have just never really suited me however in the Summer heat the last thing you want to do is sit on the beach with your head exposed so go for a large, wide brim hat (a bit Audrey Hepburn style) to keep the sun off!

Another accessory I have never got on with, even when driving! I have a few pairs lying around but I really don’t like them! I never know what style suits me or what shape of frames I should be choosing but this year I will be investing in some aviator style sunglasses as they look really cool and are definitely ‘in’.

A great way to cover up on the beach when you’re not hugely body confident is by wearing a sarong. These wrap arounds provide the coverage that you may want as well as keeping you cool and pool-ready at a moment’s notice!

The last item of clothing that is really useful when on holiday is a pretty dress. Maxi dresses are great to cover (very) pale legs and are knee length to keep you cool and covered in the heat while checking out the nearby shops or grabbing some food.
