I have started to think about packing for our upcoming summer holiday. It’s probably far too early, because we don’t go until the beginning of August, but I find packing fairly tedious, so I thought I would start thinking about what I would like to take early this year. It’s packing under pressure that gets me every year, so I thought I would take away the pressure and get started well ahead of time. I have made myself a little ‘holiday corner’ in the dressing room and I am gradually putting aside bits I would like to take on holiday. The heatwave does mean I keep pinching from the pile, but it has also been a great test run for working out which items are comfortable to wear in the heat. Greece gets very hot and sticky, so I tend to pack a suitcase of very light cottons and silks and avoid anything with a sleeve. I always pack a pair of denim shorts, they are great for popping over a swimsuit to walk to the beach. Another holiday essential is a few white, cotton tops. I have collected a few over the years, so the ones you see in this post are not available to buy, which is why I have had a good look around and chosen my favourites. I have tried to find tops that are a little off the beaten track, as I do think this is an item of clothing worth investing in, if you can. Sometimes the quality of the fabric makes all the difference.
Top last season from Urban Outfitters.
If you haven’t got the budget to spend, then here are a few high street finds for you to consider…The only thing I would say is be a bit careful with cheap broderie anglaise. Sometimes it can look just that, particularly after a wash.
