Holiday Wardrobe

My Holiday Wardrobe


Hi everyone!

The most daunting thing about going on holiday for any woman is the packing… and not just for us but the whole Clan!! We spend weeks in advance making sure that the kids and hubby are kitted out to perfection!! Even new socks and jocks!! And before we know it we are hundreds of euro down before we have even thought about ourselves!

For the last 11 years we have holidayed in campsites in France! So the holiday wardrobe was always very casual and very little or no dressing up was required in the evening! Even a pair of wedges looked out of place in some of these campsites!

But this year , for the first time ever we booked an All-Inclusive holiday to a resort in Lanzarote! Exciting!!

My kids are 17 and 12 so the France campsite days have well and truly passed.

So as regarding my holiday wardrobe…. It needed a lot more consideration this time round! And I was very excited about wining and dining in fancy clothes in the evenings!

Its my ideal holiday! Lazing by the pool all day and going back to the apartment to shower and dressed up for a cocktail happy night….. IN HEELS….. YAYYYYY!!

Day Time Wardrobe

So here is a little snippet of the new additions to my day time holiday wardrobe and the best part is that most of the items are now on sale with up to 50% off!!

Over the years I have bought some really good quality bikinis and swimwear, which I would highly recommend you invest in because they don’t date and can come out year after year if washed and cared for correctly.

My favourite place to purchase good fitting quality swim wear is Debenhams. There is always a fantastic selection and best part is they stock it all year round! My favourite brand from Debenhams is the Floozie Collection! Really amazing cut especially on the bust area.

Also Debenhams have some amazing pool/beach cover ups! Not cheap mind you but well worth the investment as the quality it superb and they don’t disfigure in the wash!

For the little extra additions for holidays, we normally head straight to Penneys!!

You just can’t beat it! Cheap and cheerful and great for some on-trend pieces like this red one-shoulder dress that I wore as a beach dress! Light and airy and only €11!!!
