Holiday Essentials for 2018

So I’m just going to skip the whole fact I’ve been MIA again (I’m sorry, forgive me! *insert puppy dog eyes*) and get right into the post for today.

So I’m off on holiday with my boyfriend next week for a 10 day, all inclusive break in Turkey and I can not explain how excited I am! First of all, I love Turkey and obviously holidays, but also, this is the first time my boyfriend has ever been on holiday with a girlfriend *gasp*, so I’m v. excited about taking his ‘Baecation’ virginity 👀

As I have spent the majority of today packing and putting outfits together, I thought I’d share with you what my fashion holiday essentials for this year are – I’ve literally been hunting high and low for my faves for a couple of weeks now!

So here are my top 3 holiday essentials for 2018!

  • Woven bag 

straw bagMy bag is from Zara and costs £25.99

This style is very ‘in’ this summer and honestly it deserves to be, it’s bloody adorable! I have seen everything from little baskets sold in Topshop (or charity shops 😉 ) to fancy straw boxes and circular woven bags in a number of stores (H&M, and Zara to name a few).

Here are a few of my favourites:


  • Kardashian/90’s style edgy sunglasses

Since seeing the likes of the Kardashian/Jenners and many other famous faces and social media influencers sporting 90’s style sunglasses, I just could not get enough. My favourite style for my face shape is the ‘cat eye’.

Mine are from Zara (£16), Accessorize (£12) and H&M (£8) and were a fraction of the price of very similar high end brands such as Quay Australia (sold in Topshop).



  • Kaftan/Kimono

I’ve always loved the look of Kaftans on reality tv stars, such as the Towie bunch, but have never really considering buying one of my own. However, having seen so many all over my Instagram and on many of my favourite youtubers hauls, I decided I want in. A pretty kaftan or kimono really does add a glamourous touch to your poolside look, especially paired with some statement earrings and a pair of wedges.

For me, I think a sheer black or white, maxi kimono is perfect on top of all bikinis or one pieces, and will flatter any body type. I bought mine from Tesco (£18) and Stradivarius (£7 on sale) but as I haven’t worn them yet, I haven’t included a photo! Instead, here are three beauties from Missguided and PLT.

So, there you have my top 3 essentials for Summer 2K18, not forgetting sun cream of course!

Okay, no, I’m lying! I can’t help myself, here’s a few other on-trend faves that didn’t quite make top three:

  • Statement earrings
  • Colourful co-ord
  • Straw-hat
  • Sliders
  • Belt bag
  • Headbands
  • Frilled tea dresses
  • Tortoise shell button anything

Here’s hoping you have an amazing summer no matter where you are and are looking fabulous to top things off x
