Menorca, Here I Come: My 5 Summer Holiday Essentials

In less than 2 weeks I will be jetting off to sunny Spain, more specifically Menorca, and that is all I can think about right now (forget work, forget the world cup, I want sunshine!). One week in the sun, in flowy summer dresses, crop tops and all the pretty swimsuits out there and a break from this hectic Londoner life sound pretty much perfect, but there is a catch. Given we'll be going for a week, we will be travelling light with just a carry on each (this was my husband putting his foot down haha). This could be a problem, considering I've never been one to pack light which is why I've decided to start thinking about what I will be taking with me early on. Planning my outfits carefully beforehand will ensure I spend less time choosing what to wear and more time lounging by the pool, because there is nothing worse than having that "I have nothing to wear" moment whilst on holiday. With this in mind, I thought about writing this post because I've landed on 5 summer holiday essentials for me and I wanted to share these to inspire you too, whether you're also off to a sunny destination, or simply looking to give your summer wardrobe an upgrade. Keep on reading to find out my summer holiday musts!

Let Loose: Culottes For Every Body Type

Honestly, is there anything more comfortable than a pair of culottes, palazzo or gaucho pants? I think not. To say I've been obsessed with this cut lately is to put it lightly. From jeans to paper bag high waisted trousers and jumpsuits, I've been wearing this style non-stop thus far and I don't see my love for it dying down any time soon. I talked about Making White Culottes Amazingly Flattering here (and I'm wearing the jumpsuit feature here today), and the tips for making any pair of culottes work are pretty much the same. But talking to a few friends over the weekend, one in particular, of small build was saying how it is nearly impossible for her to be able to pull this look off. With this in mind, and if you're not yet sold on how to wear this type of pants, I thought I'd bring a few tips on how to make it work for all occasions and all body types. Let these tips inspire you to ditch your skinnies once and for all and instead let loose!

Summer Favs: The £10 Tea Dress Everyone Has & £12 Straw Bag Everyone Wants

Despite being a lot harder to not go shopping more often when the sun is shining brightly, I am trying my very best to keep spending to a minimum this season. I have a wardrobe bursting full of dresses I mostly only wear on the weekends (because I can't be bothered with them for work), floral patterns, jumpsuits and flowy trousers; one would say I don't really need any more stuff. Having said that (there is always a but isn't there?), on a quick trip to Primark last weekend, I saw this dress which is pretty much the dress everyone has already picked and is wearing around social media and what can a girl do. The £10 floral tea dress that not only looks amazingly cute but also a lot more expensive than it is (and not at all Primark like). If you read my tea dress post here, you will know I am obsessed with this style right now so I kinda justified this purchase for that sole reason. I'm happy to report though, I only picked up two other things whilst in there and for someone who would previously spend like there was no end, this is quite an achievement! Besides, it's only a cheek Primark haul which does no harm, right?!
