In my head, in my spare time I tend to do a lot of fantasy suitcase packing. I pride myself on being the queen of minimal holiday packing.
My current favourite suitcase packing heading is pieces that effortlessly work - they have to just do the talking and require no ironing. I'm mainly imagining myself enjoying a Caribbean break (it is so miserable in London at the moment).
I don't trust BA or American Airlines with my suitcase so I have a carry on for a week. I wear on the plane a Gap grey cashmere tshirt with Warehouse white kick flare jeans and a pair of blue Repetto ballet pumps on my feet. My pale blue pashmina with silver studs from dOushala completes my travel look, oh and my Tom Ford Raquel sunnies.
In my carry on holdall, I pack 2 bikinis, my White Company terry hooded robeand a pair of flip flops. I'm loathed to do any ironing but think a white button shirt is de rigeur and think the humidity will act as a steamer. 2 x American Apparel tanks in white and silver with a cut down denim mini (it was a longer Gap denim skirt but cutting it shorter looked heaps better) plus a black Zara cardigan.
I'll take a pair of strappy high heel evening sandals and splash the cash on one of these two dresses:-
right - Purple/Pink Oriental Silk tunic dress from LK Bennet price £199
left - Emilio Pucci Orchidea print jersey dress from Net-A-Porter price £590
Which would you choose?
