I think this post is mostly just my wishful thinking, sitting here in 3 layers of merino haha
BUT I know that some of you are lucky enough to be heading off somewhere warm sometime soon (or if you’re not, you can always save this post for summer).
If you’re anything like me, packing for holidays is always like “Oh, I’ll just add this in just in case” x 1000 right?
But how much of it do you actually wear when you hit the tropics? Not that much.
me, from where I wish I was right now….
So I’ve put together a little packing guide to give you a framework to start from when you’re trying to get the most out of your holiday wardrobe….
I’ve used garments from my own wardrobe to really show you what I mean for the outfits, BUT I’ve also included links to similar when you can’t get your hands on what I’ve got.
Here’s what I’ve used in the mix, you can also double up on items depending on the length of your holiday / size of you suitcase;
- 1 x maxi dress (Asos: get it here)
- 1 mini dress (Little Party Dress: get it here)
- 1 pair denim shorts (Decjuba: similar here)
- 1 x pair midi skirt / cropped pants (cropped pants from Seed: get them here)
- 2 x tees (both Cotton On: get them here)
- 1 x long sleeve tee (Betty Basics: get it here)
- 1 pair togs (Curvy by Capriosca Swimwear: get them here)*
- 1 x pair trainers (Frankie4Footwear NAT trainers: get the here)
- 1 x sandals (Ziera Shoes: similar here)
- 1 button up shirt (Kmart denim shirt: similar here)
Look 1: mini dress + trainers | Look 2: mini dress + shorts+ sandals | Look 3: mini dress + denim shorts + button up shirt + sandals | Look 4: mini dress + long sleeve tee + trainers.
Look 5: mini dress + cropped pants + trainers | Look 6: long sleeve tee + cropped pants + slides | Look 7: short sleeve tee + button up shirt + cropped pants + trainers | Look 8: short sleeve tee + cropped pants + slides.
Look 9: tee + button up shirt + denim shorts + trainers | Look 10: long sleeve tee + button up shirt + denim shorts + trainers | Look 11: togs + denim shorts + sandals | Look 12: button up shirt + togs + denim shorts + sandals.
Look 13: togs + cropped pants + sandals | Look 14: button up shirt + togs + cropped pants + slides | Look 15: tee + maxi dress + sandals | Look 16: togs + maxi dress + trainers.
Look 17: button up shirt + maxi dress + trainers | Look 18: tee + maxi dress + trainers.
So there are 18 looks that you can create from these pieces. This definitely isn’t all of the outfits!
I haven’t use both tees in most looks, or just swap over the shoes and you’ve doubled the looks and there are many more combos I’m sure you can come up with yourself too – this is a great starting point.
Now the only question is, where are we going?
Until Next Time, In Love & Style Always,
