Toddler outfit of the day: the swimsuit edition
We spent a lot of time at the beach during our trip to Folkestone. It was our very first camping holiday as a family, and we loved the seaside, beach adventures and swimming in the wild seas.
During our holiday spent a lot of time in our swimsuits... Our little madam was very Beyoncé in her approach to beach style. On just one afternoon she had four outfit changes! I of course took lots of pictures so here is a post about one day on a beach, Beyoncé style!
She started off with her Moomin swimsuit her grandmother got her. She absolutely loves it, and what's not to love with Snork Maiden, polkadots and a little skirt. The back has a funky crisscross pattern which ensures it stays on well.
The outfit and the future outfits were teamed with multifunctional pink beach shoes by Crocs. While Beyoncé probably would have had multiple shoe swaps too, we had two options - her only pair of beach shoes or bare feet.
After a bit of wading in the sea it was time for a proper swim.... So out came the wetsuit! I love how she looks like a little surfer wearing this. The sea was very cold and we spent a while swimming, so I was glad she had this. She was practically running in to the water, pretending to be Zuma from Paw Patrol and told us she was going to rescue us. "Let's get wet!" she shouted. So of course, I held her up in water and we went round to everyone to give them a cuddle and tell them they were now saved.
After the swim, it was time for her halterneck Sunuva swimsuit. I absolutely love this one, it is so cute with a pink hummingbird and flower print on a light purple background. I won a bundle of summer clothes in a giveaway a while back and this came in that bundle.
If you are wondering what her face was all about, the tide coming in washed away her sand castle and she was quite upset about it. Until she decided it was time to go and dip her toes in the water again.
Fourth outfit was her Zebra sunsuit from Lilly & Sid. We got this for her when she was probably about a year old... It fit her perfectly when she was that age. It still fits now, about two years later, it just has short sleeves and shorts now rather than overall coverage. I love the design and actually, I might check Lilly&Sid for next year if they have something equally fabulous in their new collections.
These were her four outfits at the beach. Not to mention her terry cloth towels and playsuits she was wearing while warming up and in between outfit changes... She has quite an extensive beach wardrobe for a three year old!
