Holiday Inventory

I've started compliling my holiday wardrobe this week, with a couple of sneaky seasonal sale purchases online, but I must say, I am struggling. When I prep for going on holiday, I always have this fantasy of wearing a perfect outfit everyday, something that will look classic in the photos and the provision of which would allow me an extended period of holiday hysteria. It has something to do with being in a different country, so far away from my usual drab self and my same-old, same-old wardrobe choices. For two weeks, I can be bright and shiny and new.


The likelihood of me organising and packing at least 14 premeditated sets of clothing, however, with extra shoes and accessories, is approximately zero percent. Factor in the warning I've been issued about the size of my suitcase (as in, 'please remember there are also 3 other people who need space in the car to breath') and this daydream of mine is looking less and less likely.


With this the situation, surely a suitcase of seven standout outfits is feasible? So far, in my excitable mind's eye, this is what the first two to look like. Espadrilles, check. Denim pinnafore, check. Jade-green wedges and an imperial yellow shift dress? Already added to my pre-holiday birthday list, thank you very much.

  3. Both these outfits are gorgeous and perfect for a holiday, I especially love the first one. That pinnafore is so cute, will definitely be looking out for that next time I'm in Topshop!
    I'm rubbish at packing for holidays, I always over-pack and then end up just wearing the same 2 or 3 outfits the whole time!

  4. I love how you've put together this second outfit. It's super gorgeous! I always try to pack as full 'outfits' for each day and end up wearing the same outfits again and again! x

  7. They're both absolutely lovely.

    I can't seem to manage to strike the balance on holiday packing. I either pack light and end up bemoaning all the stuff I didn't bring with me or I overpack and then don't wear half of it. Oh to be one of those organised types who can put an outfit together with ease.

  9. I love these collections ^_^ I think the first one has to be my favourite mostly because of the pinafore <3

  10. That pinafore is divine, I am off on my hols for a bit so I am hoping I manage to look anywhere near as glam!

  13. I think my boobs are too ridiculous for pinafores, but goddamn, I want that denim dress. Love how you've accessorised it - and the yellow ensemble is gorgeous too.

  14. Oh my god. I so know what you mean about the fantasy of perfect holiday outfits. So hard to plan for every day. Great outfits though, you seem to be on the right track. I would really like if you'd take a look at our latest 'Meet the Interns' Post. Its gonna be a new feature for the blog on intern work day style. Let us know what you think!
