Summer Holiday Travel Essentials


Now we're finally in summer (yay!) I'm sure many of you will have a holiday lined up whether abroad or in the UK. Along with travel documents, laptop, camera, toiletries, make-up, a mini first aid kit, chargers and a good book or two there isn't much room for anything else! I usually take too many clothes when I travel but if I were to go away tomorrow here are a few of my summer travel essentials.

Summer Travel Essentials List

1. Little Black Dress
Everyone needs a little black dress, right? With pockets, trend buttons and a tie fastening belt around the waist this stylish black button sleeveless shirt dress is perfect for a night out or wearing throughout the day.

2. Multi Floral Strappy Cami Top
This pretty multi floral strappy cami top is available in a variety of colours and can be paired with trousers, shorts or a skirt. Ideal for wearing on the beach or for casual day wear.

3. Denim Shorts
These pull-on soft lyocel demin shorts have an elasticated draw cord for a comfortable fit. They make a perfect combination with the cami top (above). Pair with sandals for a day on the beach or trainers if walking around.

4. Tan Belt
This cute thin tan waist belt is a great addition to any summer outfit. This belt has gold detailing and is available in different sizes.

This pretty longline necklace is a wonderful accessory for any outfit this summer. Complete with gold colour flowers the necklace would team perfectly with the black dress (above).

6. Sandals
Sandals are essential for any summer trip. These jewelled sandals from Sole Diva are ideal for adding a bit of glam and sparkle to a summer outfit.

7. Sunglasses
Another summer holiday must have is sunglasses! These Wayfarer sunglasses come with ombre pink and black frame polarised lenses.

8. Bag
This gorgeous embroidered bag is embellished with sequins and pompoms. I love the beautiful design and colour and think this would make a perfect accessory to any outfit!

9. Swimsuit
If you're a keen swimmer like me you'll need to pack some kind of swimwear in your suitcase! I love the design of this Joe Browns halterneck swimsuit with a buttercup print. This retro styled swimsuit features a halterneck, medium control fabric and fixed foam cups.

10. Travel Kit
The Heathcote & Ivory Atlas Silks Sublime Travel Set includes a hand wash, hand cream, shower cream and body lotion, all in 50ml sizes. You'll be spoilt for choice with these sumptuous scents which include mountain rose, ylang ylang, patchouli, vanilla, nectarine, magnolia and sandalwood, a treat for the senses.
