We are smack bang in the middle of summer and the mercury seems to just keep on rising. When the summer simply gets too hot to handle, there’s nothing we like better than grabbing the kiddos and heading down to the beach for some sun, sand and splashing. Whether you’re a lucky duck jetting off to a fab seaside destination for the summer (can’t say we’re not jealous!) or making the most of the Lion City’s beaches, we’ve compiled a covetable list of items for mamas and their littlies that are fashionable and functional. From funky shades for babes to the perfect beach-to-bar frock for mama, here’s What Sassy Mama Wants for July!
What the Frock?! Confetti Maxi Dress
This gorgeous summery maxi dress comes from one of our fave brands, what the frock?! Featuring a girly multi-coloured confetti print, perfect for embracing sunny summer days, this maxi is 100% silk making it cool and breezy for Singapore weather. Light-weight and figure flattering, the confetti maxi is great with flats and a tote for a casual day out with bubs but can also be dressed up with wedges and a long chain bag for a romantic date night with the hubstar!

Rorybird Baby Girls Smocked Fish Romper Bubble
Whimsical and girly, we were practically squealing with delight when we found fab online store Rorybird. We simply adore their bold and bright colours, hand-drawn designs and unique patterns, plus their fabrics are breathable and durable (meaning they can last dozens of washes and barely need any ironing!). Whilst it was difficult to choose our favourite design, we are completely besotted with this baby Smocked Fish Romper, ideal for baby girl’s trip to the beach (or as a baby shower gift for an expecting mama!).
