The Holiday Edit : SUMMER

Packing for a holiday can be super stressful.. Especially if airline baggage limits are an issue.  But you don't need to pack your entire wardrobe to stay on-trend. And let's face it what's a vacay without a spot of shopping?! You definitely want to leave room in the suitcase for some must-have purchases. 

So here are a few tips to keep you in style, without over-packing

Know your destination!

What's the weather forecast?

If it's hot, is there a pool or beach nearby?

For a summer vacay...These are my style essentials:

A hat ... I love this Panama hat I picked up in Croatia... be sure to wear it on the plane or keep it in sight so it doesn't get damaged! 


Sunglasses...  I'm into @dior Sight 1 - Mirror lenses are so hot right now!

Bikinis... These don't take up much room so pack at least two pairs. I like one to be a black basic and one to have a pop of colour. I loved @victoriassecret (sadly no longer doing swimwear) but Aussie label @jetsswimwear is another fashion fave. 

Bring a kaftan or beach dress for breaks between pool time. I love my crocheted top from Australian label @solitoclothing for comfort and style. 


Denim...lots of denim! You'll need some shorts ... These go with everything. I prefer high-waisted because I like rocking a midriff top! At the moment, my favourite are a 70s inspired pair from @hm. And a classic cut denim dress can take you from day to night... A quick change of heels and some glam accessories and you're ready to go!

Jeans... If the temperature drops at night you'll need a pair of jeans. I prefer @danniiminogue petite range from Target. 

A white shirt ... Nothing says effortless glam like a white Boho shirt. I love my tie-up front from @sportsgirl

A statement top... Off the shoulder is a must-have this season! I love this tropical number from @zara

A cocktail dress or playsuit .. assume there'll be at least one night to dress up for dinner. For a summer holiday vibe .. I love this plunge neck playsuit from @keepsakethelabel(bonus to support a South Australian label).

As for shoes... Havaianas and a pair of wedges should do it. 


And don't forget to accessorise...some statement earrings can make the outfit. I love my rose gold earrings from @_mimco and my on trend tassel earrings from @hm.
