Wherever you are in the world I’m sure you’ve seen footage of the washout that was the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – holidays might seem a long way away to us Brits right now but in my opinion that’s all the more reason to daydream about sunnier climates and holiday wardrobes!
Sometimes I think I have packing down to a fine art, other times I wonder what I was thinking (note: never pack whilst tipsy). I recently read an amazing tip – pack what you wear often. It makes so much sense! A good basic suitcase guarantees easy dressing, meaning more time for sightseeing and the avoidance of lugging around 5kg-worth of things you just won’t wear.
I was recently lent a couple of great vacation pieces by Holiday Wardrobe, who (rather obviously) specialise in holiday fashion. This classic white cotton shirt by Vero Moda is ideal for keeping cool while preventing sunburnt shoulders (and will go with practically anything), while Vila Clothes‘ oversized white blazer is the perfect cover-up for when the sun sets.
What pieces do you consider to be holiday essentials? If you’ve got a trip planned I do recommend you visit Holiday Wardrobe; besides holiday clothes they sell everything from sunglasses to suitcases to branded swimwear (such as By Caprice Swimwear)!
