Hubby said to me last night, “Our holiday is only 2 weeks today” to which I squealed and then panicked! 2 weeks time! I haven’t washed, ironed or packed a thing! I have been SO busy and involved with starting a new contract for a new client (doing their social media management), as well as preparing for when the twins turn 4 next week (yay!). I therefore haven’t been able to think past all that.
We’re off to Kos, Lakitira resort with Mark Warner for a week. Our last holiday to Greece in early June, was so lovely and we are therefore excited to get away once more. This time around however I feel as though I am more savvy to travelling with young twins, and feel as though I know what to expect from our family holiday.
So. In an attempt to get going on packing and deciding what to take I am talking everything fashion for a late summer holiday. Because there are a lot of people who jet off at this time of year when the schools go back and holidays are a little cheaper than in peak season. Plus the weather here in the UK currently is also unpredictable – we’re having hot spells and Autumn hasn’t really arrived yet, has it? So I haven’t given up the dresses or pulled on the ankle boots here just yet.
I wanted some new pieces for my holiday but, at the same time, I didn’t want to spend too much – because when we get home it’s unlikely to be very hot any longer. There also isn’t a lot of summer fashion left in the shops; they’re predominately full of A/W wear now – however there are some items on superb offers.
For example, I have just picked up an amazing bargain in the sales, I got these sandals (below) from New Look for just £8 and I love them! The gold, metallic trend has been so popular this summer and these ones are really pretty. The dress next to it was £24.99 (also New Look, but full price) which will be gorgeous on holiday but I could definitely wear this again when we get home for a night out or dinner with Hubby.
Here are some more of my top picks from around the online shops, for late summer holiday fashion and to get me totally inspired for our holiday:
1/ Next hat £14
2/ ASOS mirrored sunglasses £12
3/ Mango embroidered dress £ 35.99
4/ Primark swimsuit £13
5/ Topshop shorts £28
6/ New Look gold sandals £8
What else would you add to this list?
