Having just has a little holiday and tried my hardest not to exceed the luggage limit, I thought that I would show you some recent purchases in terms of their holiday compatibility! We all know what it’s like to pack things that don’t really get worn or serve much purpose – and what it’s like to have packer’s regret! So here are three outfits that I am loving right now and would take on a weekend getaway.
This beautiful dress from Pretty Little Thing would be lovely to travel in. It’s comfy, it doesn’t crease easily and it’s dark enough to hide the fact that I would probably spill Wagamama grub all over it at the airport.
I am wearing the dress in a 16, and I would say that thanks to they style, it is quite a generous fit. I am 5’7, so this length is perfect! I wouldn’t trip over it OR need to shave my legs! It could be dressed up or down with heels or trainers – but these platform shoes would be super comfy for dragging a suitcase round the airport and then kicking off on the plane.
And if you’re wondering about bras – you could wear a strapless, you could have the straps on show (fake a cold shoulder look), you could pull the bardot sleeves up – or you could rest the straps on your shoulders like I do!
Next up – a day look!
Light, versatile layers are your friend! A pair of dark jeans like these high waisted bad boys will go with most things – and I love this style and find it very true to size. Those trusty platform shoes will be comfy enough to sightsee in, and this red leopard print jacket of dreams just needs to be worn every day! It is my absolute favourite new purchase! I was actually worried that it wouldn’t fit as an 18 was the biggest size, and I usually like to size up in jackets to allow for layers, but it is really spacious – it felt more like a 20/22. It’s just excellent!
The glasses that I have on are sold out, but these gorgeous sunnies are a good likeness, and help tie in the lovely leopard print theme that I have running through the look.
And lastly – I would pack a pretty dress for a nice meal or night out on the cocktails!
This is the Isabella dress from Lady V London in a size 16 – and so I would also say that the fit is generous, and it is really perfect if you have bigger boobs in terms of fit and style.
I really like that these styles come with a sturdy belt to nip in at the waist, and the fullness of the skirt means that they can be perfect with or without a petticoat. I also think that they can be dressed up or down – a pair of sandals could have worked just as well as these eBay heels.
I also really love the prints that Lady V use – there are pretty styles, kitsch styles, and loads of sizes! And they have different dress lengths, sleeve lengths and necklines to keep everyone happy!
So that would be my little capsule wardrobe for a weekend getaway! What would you pack?
