We're All Packing for a Summer Holiday

We're off on holiday to Devon this week, for a whole ten days of pool, beach, play and picnics.  I can't wait!  But of course before we go there is a frenzy of tidying and sorting, prepping and packing, and a whole host of blog posts to write and schedule.

Not our baby, but too cute not to use!
We're staying at Steve's parents in Exmouth for a few days first, which is a bit of a trek from us here in Sussex, so we'll be breaking up the journey at various points.  Of course with an early start, a cooked breakfast stop will be essential, then we're driving on to our friends near Lyme Regis, before they sell their beautiful home there and move to Scotland, and finally a coffee stop in Steve's old hometown of Honiton.  He always seems to bump into old friends and colleagues whenever we stop there!  Then we will be going on to Dawlish Sands for a week of R&R.  Can't wait!!

We have all been sent some lovely things for our holiday, so I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at some of our holiday packing...

Sophia is still loving her Olive and Moss dress.

Lara already has two outfits planned and is working on co-ordinating the rest of her wardrobe!

t-shirt and skirt, Little Bird at Mothercare
sunglasses, Sainsbury's

Top, Sainsbury's, leggings, BAM

And I can't wait to see all three girls kitted out in their beautiful new Sunuva swim and beachwear.

I'm ready to pack all the beach essentials in my gorgeous new Talented beach bag...

... although I will be using the stunning Mia Tui Amelie for travelling and days out...

... with its integral clutch for evenings.

(Can you tell I'm a little bit in love with my beautiful new bags?!)

And Steve has been sent a wonderful holiday wardrobe from Saltrock, which he will take great delight in modelling and reviewing.
