holiday packing post #3: Grecian Inspired Sandals

I came across these sandals and knew immediately that they belong in EVERY Summer holiday suitcase.

Great with a tan, a simple Grecian inspired sandal will be the perfect finishing touch to almost any outfit. (Think cycling shorts, denim hot pants, beach cover-up or a dress.)

Go to http://www.ancient-greek-sandals.com/ and have a look at their unique collection.

A neutral, leather pair is your best buy from an "invest in your wardrobe" perspective, but for those who find it too plain, any pair would be beneficial to have in your suitcase when away from home.

holiday packing post #2: Colourful Print Pants

If you normally avoid anything from colour to print...this will be a tough one for you!


You have nothing to lose  - you're on holiday and a printed pair of jeans/ pants will just put you in an even more relaxed mood. (To show you exactly "HOW TO", I'll do a few Polyvore sets with ideas on how to wear the seasons printed pants, after this post).

If you prefer the printed dress option, make it a maxi length, loose fitting and, preferably, in cotton - which  then can double as a chic beach cover-up as well.

Whatever your choice, be it dress or pants, just choose something that's completely opposite of your "everyday" look. Something that is bright and will make you smile when you take it out of your suitcase.
