Holiday Essentials: Summer HolidayTuesday, 15 May 2012
Whenever it gets round to this time of year I always think of summer holidays - mainly because I usually try and ditch this country for a week to actually get some sun. Said holiday usually brings up the age old question - what do I take with me? So many years I have packed so much stuff that when I get there I find that none if it actually makes a valid outfit. I'm determined to reign it in this year and create a capsule holiday wardrobe. So in an effort to try and actually stick to the plan I decided to create a blog post centered around it. I hope this helps some of you too - I'll be referencing this again come July.
I love the dip dyed hem top from Miss Selfridge - it would look perfect with the shorts or over the strapless dress. I think the key thing with a holiday wardrobe is to make sure your pieces are easy to mix and match. You could easily wear the kimono dress from Zara over your bikini, dress or shorts. I love these neon nail varnishes from American Apparel - they will look especially good with a tan. I love this fruit print bikini from New Look, they have such a great range. This backpack from ASOS is big enough for all your holiday essentials - towel, sun cream and a good book!
What will you be packing this summer?
