“Who’s a pretty girl, then?” She is, in this fun summer dress

Shopping for kids’ stuff in August can be a bit hit and miss, especially if you’re like me and leave getting sorted for your holiday right to the last minute. Cue rising panic levels. But M&S has cleverly thought ahead and sorted a new bunch of dresses, shorts and tees that are perfect for holiday fun, at home or abroad. This parrot dress is one of them. It’s ridiculously cute (just looking at it brings a big smile to your face, right?), the layered sleeve detail is so pretty and it’s just £12. So you can save your pieces of eight for an extra ice-cream.
