The Great British Summer is finally here, so why not make the most of it with a trip to the seaside? We asked our favourite parenting and lifestyle bloggers what essentials are on their Summer holiday packing lists.

Here are their holiday must-haves:

Here are my top picks from Happyology!


The Overall Shorts are just divine!


The Green T-shirt is simple but an essential. I love plain colors!

The Dotty Pajama Set for those summer evenings.


The Yellow Linen Shorts are an amazing color!


My other Summer must haves are an Ice lolly mould, a paddling pool and sun lotion.

When it comes to summer, I’m imagining ice creams, beach huts and pastel rompers! I absolutely love this pastel blue romper for the baby and this yellow pinafore with beach hut illustration is perfect. My little boy has this t-shirt and loves it, such a fun print.




Must haves for summer for us are sun cream, loose change for a 99 (with a flake of course) a bucket and spade and plenty of water to keep us hydrated and snacks to keep us going on our adventures.

I have loved all of the collections that Happyology has come out with! I can't pick an overall favorite collection but here are a few of my favorite pieces from the store-wide selection:


The Beach House Dungarees and Contrast Raglan Set. I love how cheerful and bright this set is! The design is fun and puerile, plus kids look adorable in it!




This Blue Cotton Romper just melts my heart! It works perfectly for boys and girls, as well.


The Cotton Smock Dress and matching Bunting Bloomers. I just got this set for my friend's baby girl. How cute are those bloomers with that bunting?? The perfect summer outfit for a day by the beach or a picnic in the park.


Pink Collared Bodysuit and Pink Cotton Shorts. This is the sweetest little outfit. I can imagine Princess Charlotte wearing this!


The Sailor Stripe Romper. Whenever George wears this, I absolutely melt! I love seeing those chubby little legs, which this smart romper shows off. Plus, who doesn't love a little sailor? We are packing this outfit for our upcoming trip to Paris. How adorable will he look wearing this on a stroll by the Seine?
