I love nothing more than shopping for holiday clothes especially on a wet day like today. Just the thought of being in a hot climate and not doing very much apart from lying on a sun lounger with a cocktail or two with a good book is what is carrying me through the days right now! I am so ready for a holiday in the sun and I really need to update my holiday wardrobe so today I am sharing my top holiday picks from Simply Be.
My holiday wardrobe if I’m going on a beach/pool holiday is basically a few pieces of swimwear, a couple of cover up’s and a few dresses and not to forget my sports stuff as I will run if there is an air conditioned gym. I have learnt over the years not to over pack. There was a time I’d come back with a whole suitcase full of clean clothes… I was a terrible packer! Now I think I have mastered the amount for me and the kids and after learning a few tips from Marie Kondo my packing skills are pretty much perfect too!
These are my top holiday picks from Simply Be this year and what I’ll be putting in my suitcase when we jet off to the sun later this year…
I love this simple black bandeaux maxi dress, perfect for just slipping on at anytime of the day.
This floral print Bardot maxi dress will be just gorgeous for an evening meal and a few drinks.
I just love a pretty kaftan, this Joe Browns pom pom trim kaftan is absolutely beautiful.
This pack of two t-shirt dresses is a great addition to your holiday wardrobe. I love things like this for just slipping on when going for breakfast or to and from the pool.
You can never have too many cover up’s…. can you? I think this Figleaves Curve Mykonos cover up is just so pretty.
After burning my head in the Dominican Republic a few years ago I learnt a valuable lesson… never go without a sun hat!
Another lesson I learnt a few years ago is make sure your swimwear is either strapless or has removable straps. I once took all halter neck swimsuits and they were a real pain when trying to avoid strap marks when getting a tan! So everything I take nowadays is similar to this bandeau bikini… No more strap marks!
I can never resist buying a new bag when I go away! I adore this hello sunshine beach bag perfect for carrying my books and suncream as well as all of the kids belongings 😉
I always pack a couple of pairs of flip flops for the day but love a nice pair of wedges for the evening. These Espadrille Wedges are gorgeous!
Well I think I have everything that I need so I’ll be off… Simply Be have a fantastic range of clothing for all shapes and sizes. Have you seen anything that catches your eye?
