The sun is shining, the air is balmy and the last place you feel like being is at work!
Never fear, the Christmas holidays are just around the corner – and if you don’t have to work, chances are you have travel plans for the break.
Whether it’s two nights down the coast or an adventure to another hemisphere (ME ME ME!), you’ll be stuffing all of your worldy possessions into a bag. To get you thinking about your holiday wardrobe and perhaps provide some distraction from your day job check out my top 3 summer holiday essentials that are travel friendly and fashion forward.
1. The T-Shirt Dress
This bad boy will rollup in your suitcase like a dream, and is perfect to chuck on over a bikini this summer. Try to aim for one that is crinkle-proof…that way you won’t need to get the iron out. I love this dress from online store Showpo… I bought it in grey and have travelled in it before. Rock it with a hot pink lip and you’ll be the envy of all the beach babes – even if you aren’t one.
Riptide dress in White @ Showpo.com, $55
2. The Super-Cool Shades
You’ll be wearing these all day to visit shops, beaches and restaurants, so you will want a pair of funky sunnies to top off your look. I lusted after a Celine pair for ages – only to discover they were too big for my face. DAMN! Yes, great news that my head is small, bad news that i’ll have to go back to the drawing board to find another pair I love as much as my Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses that are tired, word and ready to retire. These KW frames are awesome…but they will probably fit your face and not mine! (sob)
Karen Walker Northern Light Sunglasses @ Shopbop.com, $250 USD
3. The Summery Sandals
The perfect summer shoe hinges largely (for me, anyway) it’s wear-ability with my entire summer wardrobe. I just don’t think you can go past a tan, orange or turquoise shoe when planning what to pack for your beach getaway. A good-quality leather, flat sandal can take you from day to night, and will save some valuable space in your suitcase – no need for other shoes! I love these Indie sandals, so comfy and still, so stylish!
Indie Zig Zag Sandals @ The Iconic, $79.95
