We off on our holibobs soon! CAN.NOT.WAIT!
Half the fun waiting for the big take off day is the planning (isn’t it?) I love the whole ticking off my list thing and sorting through my wardrobe for things to pack. A whole week of sunshine, fingers crossed. < adds poncho to the list just in case > My go-to summer wardrobe is in need of a little updating though while my teenager , who is growing at a rate of knots, is on track to need a whole suitcase full of clothes.
Being a busy mum it’s much easier to do all my shopping at one place rather than spending hours surfing the web and paying lots of delivery prices, like one-stop online department stores, such as Debenhams, which has a holiday shop to help with those wants and needs.
Challenged with choosing a dress which would be suitable for daytime and evening, I’ve decided that a longer style to cover my milk bottle white pins which haven’t seen daylight since August 2016 is an essential holiday item, especially for the first few days and nights.
This Red Herring bohemian style maxi with cold shoulder straps is holiday packing gold as it won’t need an iron. At 5ft 3″, it skims the floor when barefoot so I’ll be wearing it with my FitFlops to give me the extra inch or so to make it hang better. I usually tend to avoid maxi dresses as getting the length right is a nightmare, but the elastic under bust waist gives me a little leeway to pull up. Dressed down with a denim jacket will see me through the British climate too.
My pick from the Debenhams boys range for Ky are some shark print swim shorts. He’s going through a must-wear-only-black-items at the moment so it’ll be nice to see him in colour. I can’t think of who he takes after Also packing some Hollister aftershave and shower gel for his holiday smell throwback.
All which will be safely transported in an easy to spot on the floral suitcase and leave just enough time for the remaining holiday essentials (inspiration needed please- so far my list consists of suncream, travel nail polish remover and disposable toothbrushes!
Best get this little lot packed away.
