Welcome to PART 2 of my Weekend Away or Holiday Essentials project with Buchanan Galleries, but not just any essentials (you can get your beauty products and shampoo in their Boots or Holland and Barrett), I’m talking real essentials us girls will need day and night when we’re travelling light – clothes and shoes. Am I right?
In PART 1 I gave you my Travel look and included a few items that are super comfy for the journey there and back, but I’ve also mentioned how you can style each item with various looks at different times of the day – read the whole article here.
Today, I give you an idea for an evening look, maybe even a dinner date… You want to look glamorous, yet feel comfy so I picked this Whistles Hannah dress in John Lewis mainly because of it’s amazing colour and flowy design – no need to worry about over-indulging at that dinner date! Ha… But guess what? This dress would look fantastic during the day too and if you’re lucky enough not to leave any stains on it from the meal, you can wear it the following day to the beach with those black Jones Bootmaker slip-ons from PART 1. I chose these heeled sandals from Jones Bootmaker for obvious reasons (they’re gorgeous), but also for practical. Yes a killer black heel would look stunning with this dress, but don’t you love a lovely long walk after dinner abroad? See what I’m saying? C.O.M.F.O.R.T…
I added a bit of serious sparkle here with this stunning REISS beaded clutch and this cute Cleopatra necklace from Accessorize’s new range. Jigsaw black plain fringed scarf adds a bit of a contrast and can be worn as a poncho if it gets chilly, plus it will definitely keep you cozy on that 6am morning flight.
Hope you enjoyed my little project with Buchanan Galleries. Our aim was to give you a little taste of what’s in the centre and give you some tips on what to pack for your weekend away… Oh and if you’re off to T in the Park this month, make sure to check out this Buchanan Galleries Style Fix video with stylist Kat McSwein.
Now, I’m off to look at holidays! Who’s going where? Any ideas and suggestions please…. xxx
