Holiday Fashion Wishlist

I don't know if it's just what's coming into stores or the (slightly) warmer weather, but in the last couple of weeks my thoughts have turned to holiday dressing. We've got a few trips in the pipeline this year - we're going to Budapest for a long weekend next month and Cuba in October/November - and my summer wardrobe is in need of a refresh. I've done a little overhaul by clearing out some old T shirts, but am itching to have some new lovely things to replace them with. So here's what I'd be buying for the holiday if money was no object...

Holiday Fashion Wishlist


For the flight, I'd wear a jumper with jeans and Stan Smiths (ideal as a walking trainer as they go with everything). This navy cricket jumper from Apricot is something I've been looking for for ages

I love this little H&M dress; it would be just as good for a day walking around shopping or sightseeing as for a nice dinner out somewhere, and I like the added detail from the cut-out back. I'd pair it with this Zara shoulder bag - again, tan goes with everything - and sparkly Birkenstock Arizona sandals which would work for both day and night.

Regular readers will know I'm a sucker for a good Breton stripe and I really like this Bardot version from Superdry. I'd team it with the Gap denim shorts for a casual day. Meanwhile, the striped New Look skirt (replacing a much-beloved but slightly falling apart H&M skirt) would look lovely with this T shirt from notonthehighstreet for daytime or a more relaxed evening.

Finally, more Gap! I'm constantly on the hunt for the perfect pair of summer trousers and their new girlfriend chinos fit the bill perfectly. I'd put them with my H&M cat-print T-shirt (sadly now discontinued) and these silver glitter espadrilles from Office.

Have you started your summer holiday shopping yet? Is there anything on this list that you'd take on holiday?
