Also, is a tiered sundress ($59.95) - made from a sweet blue shade of 100% cotton poplin, with a bright citrus splash – great for summer play dates. Again, it’s from Seed Heritage.
And take a look at this gorgeous little broderie ruffle jumpsuit from Country Road ($54.95), my go-to store for mid-priced, on-trend kids options.

When it comes to keeping cool all summer, there’s plenty out there for boys. Scoot (formerly Bonza Brats) in Mosman has a great selection.

BY SEA OR BY SAND
It’s always a struggle finding great bathers for my little ones, but this year I think I’ve cracked it!
Seed Heritage has this gorgeous rainbow costume for girls in a bold shade of pink ($29.95) Matched with a Country Road Flamingo tote and we’re ready to head to the beach!
For the boys, tropical motifs are always on point, like this Floral Board Short, also from Country Road in Mosman.
My kids adore dress ups and these "Once Upon a Time" outfits from Ivoy Paris are just the ticket. I love how the stylish pink dress is paired with edgy, modern details like a cap and boots for some serious street cred.
Not to be outdone, kids fashion website melijoe.com has also caught my eye this summer.
THE FINISHING TOUCH
Accessories for little girls are always such fun and I’ve found a few winners this season.
This watermelon handbag from Pavement looks good enough to eat and is a firm favourite with little girls everywhere.
Also popular for kids this year are cute headbands. Have a look at this black lace cat’s ear headband from Sportsgirl is the perfect addition to a party dress, combining sweet style with a fun touch.
For every day dress ups, I know every little girl is going to love wearing these birdie and love heart glitter hairpins from Country Road.
