In my final post before heading to warmer pastures I thought I’d share all that is coming with me.  Here is a peek into whats in my suitcase:

I had to literally dust down my Summer dresses which haven’t seen the light of day after what feels like a everlasting winter.  Also, can we just take note at the level of colour going on, I’ve banished my typical black, grey and taupe for a holiday wardrobe brimming with rainbow shades!

whats in my suitcase

L-R: & Other Stories (Wrap Design Dress), Topshop, Whistles, Topshop

Shoes, glorious shoes! I feel like I’ve been pretty restrained on the shoe front, with only one pair of heels, two sandals and some flip flops for the beach.

whats in my suitcase

L-R: Vintage Chanel 2.55 Bag (find similar HERE, HERE & HERE), Givenchy Antigona Multicolor Antigona Cabas Floral Orchid Tote (similar available HERE & HERE), Valentino (Rockstud Rubber Flip Flop), Chanel, Christian Louboutin (Pigalle 100mm Colombe), Guisppee Zanotti

I finally relented and got myself a pair Christian Louboutin Pigalles.  I’d steered clear in the past because they are staggeringly uncomfortable, so if you’re thinking of buying a pair yourself you have been warned!  However, they do look incredible and really elegant on, plus this colour goes perfectly with 80% of my wardrobe.

Can we just take a moment to enjoy my new beach bag which I haven’t stopped staring at since I got my paws on it.  I purchased it off Vestiaire where I’ve always window shopped but never taken the plunge to actually buy anything till now.  I’m thinking of doing a blogpost about my shopping experience and whether it’s a good place to bag a bargain.

There is swimwear a plenty, even though I’m only there for 4 (blissful) days.  It’s always good to have a bit of variety because you never know what you’re going to be feeling like on the day.

whats in my suitcase

L-R: Mara Hoffman (find similar HERE), Miu Miu, Agent Provocateur, Je M’en Fous (Chiara Ferragni for Je M’en Fous)

Both of my kaftans/beach coverups are new purchases and I can’t wait to whip them out by the poolside.  The white set is from River Island but purchased off ASOS.  The shorts are so pretty and look much more expensive than they are AND are currently on SALE! Definitely worth checking out (links in caption below).

Finally my accessories selection is a combination of necklaces, hair accessories, a sparkly brooch and an array of sunglasses.

whats in my suitcase

Sunglasses T-B: Dolce and Gabbana (find similar HERE & HERE), Dolce and Gabbana (Aqua Peach Flowers), Matthew Williamson (Jack Aviator) & Miu Miu (Noir Catwalk Cat Eye)
Accessories R-L: Chanel (Find similar HERE & HERE), One Club, Gift (unknown), H&M (find similar HERE), Her Curious Nature (Ingrid Headband), Her Curious Nature

Obviously I’ve also included the essentials in my bag; phone charger, camera, toiletry bag, etc but they’re pretty boring and who wants to see them anyway??
