Packing for that holiday

18:32, Dec 20 2012

Are we still here? Just? Good. Told you ya wouldn't die. There's this belief that the world will end on the 21st of December, and it turns people crazy. We attempt to cram six weeks' worth of work into one, we shop like they've never shopped before, and to top it off we drink and eat like it's our last supper. The only stitch that stops us from falling apart into a sobbing, broke, alcohol-stinking mess is the sight of that promised holiday not far on the horizon.

Whether you're going to Palmerston North or Paris for your break, you'd better get thinking about packing. Holiday clothes can be bloody boring and far too useful to feel celebratory in, so let's bury that notion and mix things up a little. They might say "Pack classic pieces that can be interchanged together into various outfits". I say "Let's take some sweet statement pieces and mash stuff up with a few less crazy pieces to make a menagerie of interesting outfits that make you feel festive and fun". Got it? Righto, let's begin:

Left to right, top to bottom: Something Else dress, Forever New necklace, Isabel Marant shirt, Kate of Arcadia bag, Isabel Marant Tee, Hills Hats hat, Givenchy heels on sale here, Peter Pilotto vest, House of Holland sunnies (call 0508 EYEWEAR), Surface Too Deep bikini, Converse kicks, Sass & Bide bra, Topshop shorts, CC Skye gold bangle, Diva black cuff, Lizzie Fortunato spike bracelet, and Jewel Rocks string bracelets, Sass & Bide clutch, and Levi's boyfriend jeans. 

So, what say you, holiday-makers?


Yay? Nay? What did I forget?

Have an incredible sun-drenched (jinx) break away, and I'm looking forward to you sharing tales of your spoils with me in the New Year. I'll be off blogging for a while and back in Jan.







Formspring - ask me what colour undies I'm wearing.
