Seaside Style And Go To Sliders: #WeekendLinkUp

Seaside Style And Go To Sliders: #WelcomeToTheWeekendLinkUp. Happy Friday lovelies.

Welcome To The Weekend Link Up. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have fun at this week’s blog hop.

Hope you have had a lovely week?

How Our Week Went:

We have been rushing around getting ready for back to school this week. The children still have another week and a bit left off school but I need to start getting ready. It is costing me a fortune as they get older too.

Everything has to be better quality and hard wearing as they get taller.

Gone are the days when you could just nip into your local supermarket and buy school uniform and shoes at great prices.

Now into adult sizes for everything. Still children but having to pay full VAT!!

My Daughters school trousers cost me £20 because school uniform does not take into account that 13-year-olds can be taller than their mum’s or just about. Also, my youngest Son has bigger feet than his Dad!! Size 10.

Still lots of things to buy too but I will save that for another day.

Weekend Plans:

Are you all ready for the weekend?

We are hoping for another trip to the seaside over the Bank holiday weekend.

The Summer holidays are going so fast.

Seaside Style And Go To Sliders


Here is me in my beach clothes a few weeks ago on holiday in Butlins in Skegness. I actually brought this dress a few years ago to save for a holiday abroad (which we have not got around to yet) but the weather was so nice when we went away, I took it with us.

Butlins Original Chalet:

How cool!? It still looks in great condition. Not much room inside though.

Sliders Yea Or Nay? 

So all the family have sliders for the last few years and I had not really been a fan. I treated myself to a pair this year and they are so comfy. They are great for trips to the beach and I am loving wearing them to go to the swimming baths at home. Saves spending ages trying to get your socks and trainers on after swimming.

    Happy Friday Claire! We have made it to the end of another week! Hooray! This is our last weekend before my son goes back to preschool. I didn’t really prep though bought him new school clothes. He only stays for 3 hours at the school and then we are back attached together for the rest of the day! Lol Your dress is a pretty one. I love the smocking up top and the versatility that you can wear it as a tube dress or halter with the straps. I am not sure if I am slides fan either. I bought a pair a few weeks ago that I am on the fence on. I do love how it looks and your white ones look very comfortable and perfect for the beach or errands.

    I used to love getting the kids new school uniforms. They are always slightly too big at first and super neat – it’s so cute! Seems like years ago for me now… Have a super weekend xx Maria

    • Claire says:

      It is lovely seeing them in all new uniform isn’t it Maria. Not long until my Daughter gets pen all over her shirt and glue all over her skirt, I am guessing though!!

    Claire i love that dress on you! It reminds me a bit of a 70’s style sun dress. The slides look so comfy. I hope you get to the beach this weekend. Prices do go up as the kids outgrow us, don’t they!!? Have a lovely weeekend!

  7. You look nice. I hope that the weather is good for your trip. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

    Such a cute sundress! I like the look of sliders but I have a hard time with actually wearing them… which is weird since I never used to wear flip flops and only wore sandals/ slides.

    Super cute dress, Claire! I still have so much to buy for my boys for school. We still have 9 days to get it all done! Nothing like waiting until the last minute!
