Holiday Essentials


Anyone else unprepared for a Beach/Hot  holiday, now A/W has arrived?

I want to be spending on Coats, Ankle Boots & Big Wooly jumpers, but here I am anxiously trying to get a holiday wardrobe together from what’s left of the summer sale rails (oh the horror 😉 )

If you’ve been rushing around in a mad panic wondering where the hell the summer stock has gone then this ones for you. I’ve put together a quick holiday essentials guide, including everything you’ll need to Summer in style this September.


Cult Gaia gave us THE bag of summer, making an appearance via just about every blogger I follow, but also Sold Out for most of the Summer. The good news is Net-A-Porter now have the classic bamboo clutch back in stock (here) – so act fast if you’ve been lusting over this like I have!

If Cult Gaia doesn’t take your fancy, then I’m also loving the selection from WaiWai or how about this super fun one from Betsey Johnson?!


Ever since THAT Gigi and Zayn for Vogue shoot (here) this brand have been all over my radar. I’ve purchased a yellow striped bikini set as well as a plain black one for my upcoming holiday – should I get a one -piece too?! Solid and striped are another fave amongst the blogger girls, and the sets are reasonably priced for ‘high-end’. These are my current favourites from the collection:

Similar, more affordable dupes via & other stories here, and ASOS here.


Praise the lord for whoever made slides cool. They tick every box in terms of comfort and practicality, and are an easy effortless essential when on holiday. From Adidas to Gucci there’s a price point for everyone and I genuinely think you can get away with wearing these in the evenings as well as poolside. I’ve curated my favourites and also found some inspiration via Instagram on how to style them day > night.

Linked – 1. Velvet Adidas 2. Raf Simons for Adidas 3. Moncler  4. Gucci 5. Schutz 6. Gucci

Being abroad is the perfect time to try something that might be a little out of your comfort zone. I’ve been inspired this summer after seeing so many girls in bold statement earrings and its made me make a little extra space in my suitcase for a few cute pairs. If you’re not a big earring kinda girl back home (I’m certainly not), and don’t want to invest too much into it then there’s plenty of affordable pairs on the high street right now (try H&M & Mango especially). Writer/blogger/my Instagram crush @pandorasykes has been wearing this look perfectly:


I hope these 4 statement pieces give you some inspiration for you’re A/W Summer Holiday! I’ll be posting lots whilst away and you can see how I’ve chosen to style these bits so keep you’re eyes peeled!
