Guest Blogger: Mellow Mummy's Holiday Picks
In a special guest post, fabulous mummy blogger, Emma, from Mellow Mummy tells us all about her upcoming holiday to the beautiful Cote D'Azur, plus picks out the pieces from the new Sunuva collection that she will be packing in her suitcase.
I love to visit the Cote D'Azur in spring and early summer before the crowds flock to be seen in Cannes and St. Tropez and before the heat becomes too intense – a spring escape to the beautiful areas of Ramatuelle and Gassin, just a few minutes drive from the glamour of the gulf of St. Tropez.
This year will be the first time that we have travelled to the beautiful beaches of the South of France as a family of four and I can't wait to show my youngest daughter the joys of beautiful sandy beaches and the glittering Mediterranean. I am looking forward to sharing with our daughters a passion for the great food and drink that can be found in the local towns and villages.
Of course, when you are brushing shoulders with the stars in the French Riviera, you have to be well dressed at all times and I have my eye on a number of beautiful pieces from the latest Sunuva range for both of my girls.
For my youngest, who will have just turned one year old when we travel, I have had my eye on a pair of the nappy pants and this year I think the white and floral print will definitely be a favourite with her as she is a gentle, feminine soul.
My eldest, on the other hand, is currently into bright colours. I picture her in the Hummingbird rash vest paired with the matching print of swimsuit, or the innovative reversible Heart swimsuit to provide great sun protection around the pool and on the beach.
Away from the water, the classic combination of French Navy and white make casual play outfits look stylish and timeless. Ordinarily I resist the temptation to dress both of my girls in co-ordinating outfits but very occasionally it is nice to see them both wearing the same colours or prints.
For the evening, I think that both of my daughters would look relaxed and comfortable in a cool dress such as the crochet-topped dress or flutter dress. As I type this I relax just thinking about the warm, quiet evenings in the South of France. I am dreaming of uninterrupted views out over the sea and feasts of tasty French food and fun family days in the sunshine.
