Packing Tip- when packing choose a colour scheme and stick to it, to avoid the problem of getting to the hotel and finding nothing goes.
My Main Colour Scheme-Nude,white,gold
Look 1.) Casual evening-The outfit was for an evening when I was planning on going for a wander to find a casual local restaurant. As I wasn’t sure how much walking I was going to do I went for a pointed toed kitten heel in the colour nude, which is a must have when going on holiday, as it goes with everything and is practical yet glam. I teamed these with my white jeans which have a lacy pattern, giving them more of an evening feel. I then put this with my floaty white peasant shirt, which is lovely for evenings in hot climates,as you feel a bit more covered up for the evening, yet still cool and comfortble and it singes in at the waist creating an hourglass figure. My bag is a nude/gold colour in an envelope style, I feel it is the perfect size as its big enough to fit your phone, lipstick, powder and shall, without looking bulky.
Clutch bag-Olga Berg
Look 2.)- Outfit to the shopping mall
This top is really useful as because of its floaty long style, it can also team up as a beach cover up. I teamed it with my white jeans (shown in previous look), a statement necklace and a grecian headband to give it an exotic feel.
Bag-Michael Kors shopper bag in gold and nude
Look 3.) At the beach club-This is my favourite beach cover up as the pattern is really beautiful and unusual and it has little beads that catch the light when you move. I teamed it with my swimming costume with similar purples, pinks and blues in as it will show through the cover up, so I wanted it to match. I then teamed it with my black and gold Chanel sunglasses to add that extra touch of glitz. I feel if there is any piece that is worth investing in for summer its sunglasses, as you will where them everyday so will be sure to get your moneys worth, just make sure you get a colour and style that is classic, timeless and will go with every outfit.

Look 4.)- Special restaurant
This evening we had booked a special restaurant, so it was a chance to dress up. I wore my peasant shirt again (as talked about in first look) showing its versatility, but this time dressed up. I teamed it with long teardrop gold Swarovski crystal earrings, gold tulip skirt and my gold open toed stilettos. I tied my hair up to show off the earrings, but left a few strands of hair down to intertwine with the earring to further emphasise it.
Look 5.) Versatility- Shopping followed by dinner
This outfit was for another shopping day but followed by dinner. As this outfit had to do both shopping and dinner, I needed it to be comfy yet glamourise without being too over the top for shopping. These trousers and top are a matching set and are made out of a very lightweight, breathable knitted material making them super comfy. The flared style of the trousers gives them more of an evening feel and the metallic threads woven in-between add a beautiful shimmer. I brought a shall as sometimes with the air conditioning in the malls it can be bit cold, this one is nude, with metallic threads also woven in so matches with the overall look. I teamed it with some more chunky casual heels to dress it down a bit for shopping and to give the comfort needed. I then wore my gold studded hairband to give the look a bit of edginess, followed by my gold shopper (mentioned in look 2)
Trouser and top set- Zara

Packing tip: Shawls are always handy as can double up as a blanket on the plane, a shawl or scarf in the evenings for when its a bit cooler and a beach cover up.
Packing tip: Often when on holiday you need outfits that will be good for lots of different occasions and can be dressed up or down, so try to consider this when packing.
I hope this post has been helpful and feel free to share any packing tips you may have, as I am always looking for ways to improve my travel x
