Am I superduper excited? Hell yeah. I’m taking off the day after tomorrow and packing is almost done! I’m actually worried as hell about spending 10 h in an airplane since me + hunger = not a great equation. I know, there will probably be some food around but STILL I’m worried I’m gonna turn into a total bitch. Luckily I have a great sister who has arranged a snack box for me! 😀 Precautions are always good to be done.
Okay, but to the point. I put together a holiday wardrobe which I’d like to show you since it’s always troubling to go somewhere super-hot, for me at least (please don’t kill me 30 C degrees!). Here are the pieces of clothing that’ll probably take me through that unbearable heat.
First outfit consists of my mom’s old t-shirt straight from the 90’s and cropped vintage Levi’s jeans. My style is actually a bit 90’s inspired so I think that this shirt is just amazing and besides that really comfy and well-cut. I usually have trouble finding shirts that flatter me and this is cut the way that my boobs actually fit in and have a fair amount of space to feel at ease. This is also a bit fitted at waist which is great for my straight figure since it gives me a bit of curves. The sunnies are H&M.
Ok, so my mom hates this shirt by Rihanna and River Island but I absolutely adore it. The cut is amazing since it covers my belly but reveals a flash of my back. I’m also a sucker for tie-dye so this was a must-buy for only 20 €. The necklace is from H&M and gives a little modern edge to the outfit.
This outfit was cheap as hell but looks great in my opinion at least. The vest top is by H&M and cost about 5 quids. I rarely wear anything sleeveless since I’m a bit conscious about my arms and shoulders but this time I just decided not to give a single fuck. The skirt is Jo’s and is bought from Gina Tricot. (Sorry darling, this is coming with me to NYC! And it’s never coming back to you btw.) I love it since it has a stretchy waistband that allows me to sit and still breathe.
I have a rule of 2+4+1 for traveling which means I usually take two bottoms, four tops and one playsuit/dress with me to make everything easier. Preferable those individual pieces of clothing should all be mixable. This Gina Tricot vest top is made out of lace and has a beautiful skull pattern on the backside. I’ll probably be wearing it with a black tank underneath but when it get’s really hot I just wear it with a cute bra (this time CK Portia). The necklace is H&M, once again.
Hmm, you can probably just read my face and tell that this is my ultimate favourite outfit of all time. It’s so simple, comfy and always works. The playsuit is by Oasis and did I already mention I LOVE IT? Well, I love it.
Okay, so here it is. Seven days, seven pieces of clothing. I know it sounds crazy and very little but I have always been travelling light since come on, I’m doing some serious shopping anyways. I need to fit all into my suitcase, right?
When it comes to underwear I always try to pack one beige bra to wear under light-coloured clothing and a few non-padded bras to fit into a small space (my suitcase is tiny). This time I’m taking my CK Smoothie and Portia (comfiest bra I own, great for airplane), Cleo Marcie (always a safe option) and TR Betty (comfy and makes me happy).
That was it for this time, hope you liked my choices! What are your must-pack choices when travelling?
