FASHION // My go-to travel outfit

Thursday, 24 September 2015

Hey there!
When I pack for a holiday I like to be prepared. I want clothing for every occasion, even if I'm only taking hand luggage. I have found that, for me, this involves swing dresses a plenty. They are light and flowy, so perfect for hot climates with a pair of cycle shorts underneath. They can also be paired with tights, a leather jacket and boots for when it's that bit colder. I packed no fewer than 4 swing dresses for my recent trip to Corfu but this one is my favourite.

Corfu

I got this dress three years ago from Primark and have worn it like crazy since. The colours are lovely and bright and I cannot say no to an aztec-esque print. This one is a nice light cotton which looked so much more expensive than it's £13 price point.

Corfu

I paired it with my new New Balance 574 trainers for exploring Corfu Town. They are super comfy and perfect for navigating cobbled streets and stairs.

Obviously sunglasses aren't optional in 35 degree heat and my RayBan Clubmasters were on my face all day. Lastly, I used my new fold over leather clutch from Topshop as a day bag. It was the last one hidden in the stockroom at my local store - how lucky!

What are your go-to outfits when you're travelling? Let me know!

  7. Swing dresses are definitely the way to go since they are comfortable enough for sight seeing and can easily be dressed up or down! Love the one you are wearing here, you look great, lady!
