So girls, were heading off in 2 weeks time, on a family holiday, myself, hubbie & our 22 month old (getting a holiday in quickly before he turns 2 and will cost full price). Were off to Benalmádena in the Costa del Sol.
I always love to get new clothes for myself for going on holidays and in the run up I buy a couple of things each week. So I thought I would share with you, the outfits that I have purchased. I’ll probably add some more into the case, as I’m one of those girls who packs everything but the kitchen sink! However, I think these 12 pieces alone could constitute a ‘capsule’ wardrobe for holidays, by mixing and matching different tops with skirts, trousers and shorts.
So here’s what I bought:
1.Pink Mesh Overlay Body – €10.00 – Penneys – SHOP HERE
2. White Mesh Stripe Midi Skater Skirt – €34.99 – New Look – SHOP HERE
3. White Stripe Tie Back Jumpsuit – €44.99 – New Look – SHOP HERE
4. Wedge Toe Post Bellissimo Sandals – €29.00 – SHOP NOW
5.Black Fitted Cold Shoulder Top –€8.99 – New Look – SHOP HERE
6.Bright Pink Tie Waist Cropped Trousers-€24.99-New Look – SHOP HERE
7.Yellow Lattice Back Vest- Jersey Tops – 2 FOR €15.00 – New Look- SHOP HERE
8. Pleated culottes (Blue, Yellow or Black) – €12.99- Bershka – SHOP HERE
9. White Lattice Back Vest Jersey Tops- 2 FOR €15.00- New Look – SHOP HERE
10. Jersey Wow Shorts – €5.00 – Penney’s – NOT VIEWABLE ONLINE
11. Womens Schuh white awesome snake flats – €31.00 -Schuh – SHOP HERE
11. Long strappy embroidered dress- €35.99 SHOP HERE
That’s all folks! I hope you enjoyed browsing my holiday wardrobe and pick up some ideas for your holidays too. I think you can’t go wrong with a neutral pair of sandals for night time, that are comfortable and go with everything. The Bellissimo sandals are super comfy, but have a wedge for height.
Also I love a plain white pair of runners, again with a bit of a wedge, to go with casual clothes like shorts – these ones from schuh are great value.
The black fitted cold shoulder top can be worn with the pink tie waisted cropped trousers but can also be worn with both the white mesh midi skirt and the blue pleated culottes.
Finally, the white stripe tie back jumpsuit can be worn for an evening look with some simple accessories and clutch and then can be worn dressed down on an alternative day with the snake flat runners.
There are various other swaps and matches in this 12 item holiday wardrobe – so goes to show you can look great for a full weeks holiday without breaking the bank or overloading your suitcase! (Note to self: take note of this advice!!)
