Happy Monday folks!
Travelling soon? Well.. you’ll need to do some shopping for your holiday then, won’t you? Whether it’s a short city break away or that overdue annual vacation, getting a few essential pieces is a must, because the holiday sort of begins when we start our holiday shopping and it’s the feeling us girls love, right? I’ve teamed up with Buchanan Galleries for an exciting “travel essentials” project to show you some of the key pieces we all need to take with us and I’m starting with the travel look in today’s post.
Obviously we all need our actual holiday essentials such as toothbrushes, beauty and hair products, SPF creams… and you can get all of those in Buchanan Galleries’ Boots store, Arran Aromatics or Holland and Barrett, but if it’s a new suitcase or a weekend travel bag you need then I recommend Ness and John Lewis for some quirky new luggage. Though if you’re like me – it’s the “packing light” and “smart” that I always have an issue with and you know what? I think I’ve cracked it this time – read on.
Dressing right for those freezing early morning flights from Glasgow is what really gets me. Who wants to bring jackets and thick chunky knits with us to a warmer climate? I say go for a 100% cotton sweat like my Whistles Hummingbird number that you can wear with black stretch skinnies on the plane or wear over a dinner dress / pleated skirt on a chilly evening – show them how this summer’s sportsluxe is done!
I wend for black Lee skinnies from John Lewis because they’ll be practical, super stretchy and definitely a plan B saviour too. Just think how handy they’ll come in paired up with sexy sandals and a gorgeous off-the-shoulder top (see this post with my favourite) or a cute crop top for a date night maybe? And you will never know how comfy these Jones Bootmaker slip ons are until you try them on, and again I guarantee you’ll also wear for them most of your trip with skirts, dresses and shorts.
So, my PART 1 “clever” travel look is sorted, now look out for this Wednesday’s post where I’ll be showing you another outfit with pieces you might want to take with you for an evening outing, but will be able to wear during the day too. Think “clever” packing!
See you in PART 2!
