Have I mentioned that I’m almost 30?
Oh, only about thirty seven times? That’s not enough. I’m almost 30. HALP. Not like I’m over here having a full on midlife crisis about it or anything.
I’m hoping to get away for a few days near my birthday. A city break, most likely. Details are still unclear but it’s in the works.
I’m in desperate need of a holiday. With holidays, comes shopping. Because the 100’s of dresses I already own are just not enough.
I took myself to JD Williams in search of holiday clothes. Well, when I say took myself, what I really mean is – I sat at my computer and opened Google Chrome. It is 2016. Why shop in real life when you can shop online? Especially on this wintery April morning. Brr.
So, right, where were we? Yes, we were getting on the Internet, my favourite place in the world. I went straight to the summer dress section, then the sandal section to see what summery goodies I could find.
Of course I went to my usual destinations, ASOS and House of Fraser to see what they have to offer.
Here’s what I picked out for my ideal few days aways:
- ASOS Bird Midi Dress
- Floral Wrap Swimsuit
- Pink Skater Dress
- Black Wedges
- Black and Red Floral Dress
- Lotus Crossover Sandals
What I love about these dresses and shoes are that they can be dressed up or down – it’s my best tip for packing for a holiday. You can get away with just packing hand luggage pretty easily. How you do you hair and makeup and really change the feel of a dress and make it either casual or dressed up.
You can also beat the weather this way, too – there’s no need to pack heavy jeans, just pack tights or even leggings to put on under the dresses – as well as a simple cardigan or jacket to keep you warm on the evenings or if the weather is cold.
If anyone is wondering what to get me for my birthday, any of the above will do 😉
What outfits do you take for short breaks?
