I always love putting together a holiday wardrobe. I think it’s because of the fact I know I’ll always be in a great mood in whatever I’m wearing and it will remind me of that particular getaway whenever I pull it out of my closet again at home. During my recent family trip to Thailand I wanted to bring pieces that were light, easy and also with an element of polish. I never really steer too far from my usual look when I am away, I just tweak it a bit so it’s a little more relaxed.
One of the first things I look for in any potential outfit for a holiday wardrobe is its versatility. I liked the fact that the below skirt and cami could be worn together and as separates, which allowed me to get more wear out of it while I was away. It was also perfect for the warm weather and I could wear it out to dinner without feeling too dressed up. I think that’s the thing with a tropical island getaway — you want to be able to wear pieces that look great but also don’t look too fussy or overdone as the whole vibe of the destination is so relaxed.
I spent most of my time away sans shoes or in sandals or slides as it was just easier, plus it was ideal for the weather. I brought the below pair of pink slides with me and pretty much lived in them. They were comfortable but the bow detail and the velvet fabrication made it look and feel a little more luxe. I’ll definitely be wearing them throughout summer, but every time I do I’ll always be reminded of the great family holiday we had.
