I am going on holiday in 10 days so I will be doing a series of travel related posts in honour of that. I am only going to The Canary Islands, but I can not wait for the sun, the pool and the cocktails (priorities right?). I didn’t want to buy to many new things, especially dresses because I have plenty to wear already. However I did need to replace a few items regardless of how much I didn’t want to spend because unfortunately it is the time of the year I generally need to replace most of my make up.
Small Aztec Pouch Bag – Primark £4.00. This is perfect for the evening, I can fit my purse, phone, camera and sunnies in there and it is my style and the perfect size.
Grey Handbag – H&M £24.99 (Similar). Surprisingly enough I don’t have that many handbags that are large enough to be a carry on, especially my Jasper Conran bag because as much as I love it its not really big enough. This one is spacious (can’t fit my neck pillow in it, but I am negotiating with my brother to carry it. It’s smart and I will be able to use it after my hols as well especially when travelling back and forth to London.
Bikini Top – George at Asda £4 (X), Bottoms – Primark £1. The bottoms were in the sale in Primark so I don’t think they are available anymore but you may still be able to get the top.
Water Bottle – Debenhams £5 (X). I like to have a bottle of water with me when I am around the pool it is important to keep hydrated and this way I can fill it up from the large bottle my parents buy and keep it in the fridge overnight and it has a small freezing compartment to keep it cool.
Leggings – George £8.00 (X), I have a four hour flight; and while that isn’t super long I want to be comfortable while I am stuck in a plane chair. As long as my butt is covered by my top I have no problem wearing leggings in public. I got these blue look leggings so they look kind of like jeans (jeggings or denim look leggings are a great alternative than sweats are more comfy than jeans).
Backless Dress – ASOS £25.00 (X). I bought I backless dress from Forever 21 (See it on this post) and as much as I liked it I felt really exposed, as it was short and had a circle skirt. This one is perfect, its backless but it has a high neck and it a maxi dress. I actually saw it in a Londoner (X) post and loved it and it will be perfect for the summer and its smart and sophisticated enough.
Neck Pillow – Amazon £3.29 (X), I like to nap but I hate to get a sore neck so I caved and bought a micro bead cushion however this is a bit of a problem as it takes up so much bloody space.
Shorts – George £12.00 (I think). I needed new shorts, I love my denim shorts, they are versatile and comfy.
Adaptors – Poundland £1 (X).
Travel Bottles (X).
Phone Tripod – Amazon £2.99. OOTD posts will be coming, and this is the easiest way of doing it, I downloaded a timer app and this way I don’t have to find a mirror like last year because I didn’t have one in my room.
Wash Bag – Primark £4.00. This thing may look small but I can fit so much in this thing, I completely cut down all my stuff into my travel bottles and packed them neatly into one compartment as well as my jewellery. Its compact which is perfect.
White Tank – Primark £4.00. These tanks are so comfy and they are long so they fall over my bum, they are kind of see threw and that is why I also bought a grey one to wear on the plane with a crop top underneath.
