This time tomorrow I will off for one last adventure before my summer ends. I’m going to Budapest!! I only packed my suitcase today and spent the afternoon trying on all kinds of outfits, so I figured I would show you guys what I’m packing. I am going for 6 days and I want to pack as little as possible so I picked pieces that would mix and match. I also decided to stick to a colour palette for the most part, so literally all my pieces go together (and my Instagram feed will be on point too👌).
All together I have packed 2 dresses, 1 pair of culottes, 2 pairs of shorts, 1 skirt, 5 tops, 2 swimsuits, 1 bikini, 1 pair of sandals, 1 pair of sunglasses, 1 handbag and 2 lipsticks. I haven’t shown all of the pieces here. I’m missing out a dress (polka dot cami dress – for an evening out), a cream sheer blouse, a pair of silk shorts, leopard print bikini, metallic lipstick and a white cold shoulder top, but I have included some of them in the outfits below. I am also planning on wearing jeans, a cosy sweater, denim jacket and some trainers on the flight over so that I have some warmer pieces too in case the evening get a bit cooler.
Holiday Outfit Ideas for DAY
When I’m not lounging around in my swimwear, trying to squeeze as much tan out of the sun as I can before my summer is over, I’ll probably be wearing denim shorts. I love that because I have chosen to pack full swimsuits with me, they can double up as a top when worn with some shorts during the day, while going to and from the pool. I also have a white co-ord packed for one of the days, or even the evening, and it’s a very exciting DIY so I am hoping to get some beautiful pictures on holidays and have the post up as soon as I get back. I’ve packed very few accessories but I couldn’t go without a great pair of sunglasses, a red lip and a red handbag. I also just packed one pair of shoes so fingers crossed they will be comfy!
Holiday Outfit Ideas for NIGHT
It’s very easy to look chic for an evening or night out when you stick to a monochrome colour palette, so that is exactly what I did. Apart from the odd pop of denim I’ve packed mainly black or white/cream items with gold and red accents such as a red handbag, red lipstick and gold sandals. The temperatures are still going to be quite high in the evenings so I’ve picked looks that are a bit more covered up but are still light and airy and comfortable (so I can do all that holiday eating in comfort!).
