Girls Summer Fashion from Melijoe

Although I'm a little disappointed the Easter holiday has now come to an end and the Mini Mes have returned to school, I'm still feeling rather content due to the endless sunshine that we seem to be having at the moment - I love it! It really reminds me of summers gone by which always bring thoughts of BBQs, afternoons in the garden and of course lazy days spent on the beach. The pace of living seems to slow down between July and September and everyone just seems so much happier, don't they.

With this in mind I started to think about how unprepared I actually am for the warmer weather, and our holidays abroad, as our wardrobes are some what lacking in suitable summer fashion! Minxy in particular has had a bit of a growth spurt recently so I soon found myself browsing Melijoe for some key designer pieces. 

I put together these three lovely outfits...


Summer Fashion from Melijoe



I selected the Rykiel Enfant Flared printed cotton poplin skirt as it is a piece that Minxy could wear all year round. It goes perfectly with the pretty Pom d'Api sandals but at the same time she could team this with some tights and boots when Autumn arrives. Being black and white it would go well with a lot of her existing clothing and the Liu Jo top I've teamed it with is such a lovely deep shade of fuschia and a style that can be both dressed up or down for any occasion making it very versatile.

The Derhy Kids knit dress and Viscose cardigan with an embroidered back are ideal for evenings out. It's light enough to be comfortable in the heat of the day but it will also keep her warm enough when it's cooler. I saw her eyeing up some white shoes like this Les Tropeziennes pair recently so I know she would approve! 


Finally there is my favourite outfit. The Desigual Stone-washed denim shorts have really pretty detailing and a lovely belt and I've put these with the vibrant Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Cotton jersey top with a giant strawberry, ruffled straps and a knotted back along with Tommy Hilfiger Fancy heart flip-flops. This will go well for the hot UK days but also while sunning ourselves in Zante!


Will you be updating your summer wardrobe too?
