On Holiday Dressing






(Dress: Urban Outfitters, Shoes: Castaner, Glasses: Celine, Earrings: Whistles, Bag: Tidy Street Store (similar here)

I’m fairly confident in saying that I’m not the most efficient holiday dresser. With most trips away being city breaks or U.K. escapes- I’ve still got a lot to learn in the packing department that doesn’t equate to panic buying on ASOS 24 hours before I need to be at the departure gate- or even at Zara in Gatwick’s North Terminal (where I vow they will never get to know me by name). But honestly? I find holiday dressing quite a task. There was once a time where dressing for a week away consisted of tightly beaded hair braids a la Monica, triangle bandana tops circa 2000 school disco and more towelling than your local swimming club. There was an almost underlying pressure to dress totally different the second you pack a suitcase- and goodness knows I’ve been partial to accidental palm prints, kaftans and tassels.

But all that said, over the years I’ve learnt to not impulse buy the things that’ll see me through the summer seasons- but invest in things that I know will take me through a heatwave at home too- which is where pieces like this dress come in. It’s the pieces that brands like Reformation do so well- looking at classic shapes and cuts that last longer than an EasyJet flight and week in Spain- and pieces that are more timeless than trend led- which I’m pretty sure can only be a good thing (and hopefully means I can avoid duty-free Zara in the future too)…
