What she wore: Next seaside playsuit

I love this playsuit I picked up in the Next sale for my daughter. It’s a real playsuit in the literal sense of the word – it is a suit for playing in. It’s not girly or trendy, it’s just a comfy suit.

It would make a great beach cover-up for when a little girl gets our of the sea and is feeling cold at the end of the day. It’s quite a thick material and has a hood too, so it’s perfect. Before we went on holiday she wore it with a Joules jumper over the top and she also wore it with leggings underneath on cooler days.

I was looking forward to my daughter wearing it on the beach at Padstow and she was looking forward to it too. But it didn’t make it as far as the beach…

Wearing it with the trusty combination of a waterproof coat and her new bright pink Crocs, she wore it for our very wet bike ride on the second day, when she got soaked to the skin and it got covered in mud.

I bought her a bigger size, so with any luck it might make it to the beach next year!

  3. Thanks very much, ladies 🙂
    Yes, I do love Next, Nikki! It’s partly that I can’t be bothered to go round actual shops and find things – I can just look in the Directory. They have so many styles you can usually find something to suit – for boys as well as girls.
