The 15 things you need to pack for your holiday

The 15 things you need to pack for your holiday

When it comes to holiday dressing I tend to stick to a tight colour palette of about five colours. It makes creating a smaller capsule wardrobe so much easier, everything tends to go with everything. Less clashing prints, more subtle (but stylish) neutrals. ¬†Although saying that – you always need a few boho colour injections to really feel the Summer. So I have pulled together my basic checklist for holiday packing… the basics, the accessories, the shoes and the ‘I have a large luggage allowance’ extras. Hope it helps…


White vest – I take two or three

Black vest – classic basic

White denim skirt – a Summer classic

Blue denim shorts – pull over your swimwear or pair with a vest for when you’re out and about

White shirt – to throw on at the pool and the beach

Jumpsuit – dress it up and down for day and evening

Bikini – something boho and neutral


Swimsuit – a classic one piece

Loose fitting dress – to throw on in the day time

‘Special’ dress – for dinners and dates

Gold – anything and everything gold – necklaces, earrings, anklets and bracelets. Go for 9ct rather than plated and you can wear swimming, on the beach etc. Mine are by Auree Jewellery, Rachel Balfour, Etsy vintage sellers, local second hand shops, H Samuel and Lucia Hall.

A large basket style bag – I use mine as hand luggage and then the family beach bag

A small basket style bag – perfect for evenings

Nude flats – anything that makes your tanned legs look longer

Sunglasses – classic black beauties
