With the kids off school for the long summer break many of us are preparing to jet off on holiday somewhere warm and sunny. The UK summer seems to have taken a holiday itself lately, the weather has been very disappointing to say the least! I’ve already had a week in Brittany at my dad’s (where I wore my sunshine yellow dress). Next week we’re heading off to Switzerland for a few days to stay with friends. Although I passed through Swtzerland in the car many years ago, I’ve never stayed there before. The weather is forecast to be mostly hot and sunny – 29c one day! I’m looking forward to spending time relaxing by Lake Zug.
Although it’s not a beach holiday, I still want to enjoy being in the sunshine and swimming in the lake. I also need to travel light so I’m planning my outfits very carefully. Minimal packing isn’t my strong point so I need a few well-chosen versatile clothes. I have a feeling this Seafolly jumpsuit and hessian crossbody pom pom bag are going to be my new holiday wardrobe heroes.
When packing for a holiday I usually take a couple of maxi dresses to throw on over a bikini but this Seafolly jumpsuit from Simply Beach is a game changer. It’s light, very easy to get on and off (no bathroom dramas!) and feels as comfortable as wearing pajamas. The halterneck ties up on one side so you can adjust it to suit. The fabric is really soft, and although it’s a loose fit, the elasticated waist adds definition. It has pockets too! It would be so easy to throw this jumpsuit on over a bikini to head straight to the bar…just add jewellery and you’re ready for cocktails!
A crossbody bag is a holiday essential for me. This natural hessian bag goes with pretty much everything and the pom poms add a little fun. The strap is detachable so it can be worn as a clutch. It’s a good size, big enough to hold everything I need when out sightseeing. I kept the rest of my accessories neutral with gold espadrilles and a striped wide brim floppy hat. The long gold tassel necklace and lapis lazulite bracelet finish off this simple but stylish beach look. Simply Beach have a fantastic range of swimwear, beachwear and jewellery, including big brand names. You’ll find a fabulous range of playsuits and jumpsuits in a variety of styles. There’s a sale on at the moment too so it’s worth popping over for a browse if you need some new holiday clothes.
