well folks, tomorrow we head off for our long awaited week in the sun. i was determined to get off to a good start by ensuring i’m organised in the packing department and after taking a few tips from the pros i finally tackled the dreaded suitcase.
normally i wait until the morning of my flight and throw a random selection of clothes into whatever case is handy. i think this comes from my chicago days when we frequently returned to london and packing just felt like the most boring task in the world. so not interested. of course, that usually meant i’d arrive in either continent with a terrible wardrobe selection, thus spending several weeks in ramshackle outfits.
….tops, bottoms, dresses, swimwear, accessories, footwear, jewellery and cosmetics.
not entirely intending to i seemed to settle on a vague colour theme. lots of blues, various shades of pink with a few stripes thrown in for good measure. i was pretty ruthless (this was very hard for me!) but in the end i’m really happy with my selection.
tops…white cotton top, mint tee, mint button down vest, orla kiely print vest, two striped gap vests, sleeveless denim shirt
skirts…pink pleated, colourful vintage, denim midi, polka dot cullottes
dresses…black midi, vintage floral, old navy striped dress with belt
shoes…flat green sandals, lime green havaianas, beige wedge sandals
accessories…beach bag, vera bradley clutch, satchel, selection of scarves, hat
cover ups…two striped dress style cover ups, blue/black patterned shirt dress, floral dress
other…betty boop beach towel, cosmetics, magazines, jewellery, snacks
we’ve decided to leave the cameras at home but i’ll be capturing moments on the iphone and most likely will still be on instagram at some point – knowing we have wifi in the apartment has pros and cons. i want an almost complete internet break to just be able to completely relax. because most of my work is done online it can sometimes get too much, so for the most part devices will be banned. this is gonna be good!
