My vacation wardrobe is something I think about as soon as the days begin getting longer. Where will I be shopping this season? What will I be wearing? How will I be wearing it? The prospect of a new wardrobe is something I find incredibly exciting, when the deliveries start arriving I find myself tearing them open like a child on Christmas morning.
But I don't just think in terms of the current season, I want to see many of the items establish themselves within my wardrobe for many seasons to come. As a serial outfit repeater, the longevity of everything I buy is always at the forefront of my mind when hitting the "check-out" button so if you've come here expecting this to be the first and last time you see these items, you better keep it moving along.
From the coveted Cult Gaia bag to floaty dresses of dreams my first port of call for everything Vacation/Stay-cation style has been the Net-A-Porter Vacation shop and I have compiled my ultimate shopping list to ensure your wardrobe is perfect for wherever you find yourself this holiday season.
Summer beauty collections are magical, from packaging to colour to formulations there is no other time in the beauty calendar where I am quite so excitable. I even found myself in the World Duty Free at Doha airport frantically buying everything in sight from the Tom Ford Beauty collection before my connecting flight to Male. Glowy skin finishes, coral pinks and bronze goddess vibes are the core of my vacation beauty style.
The award for the best value Summer shoe, goes to Castañer for creating a comfortable, versatile and beautiful shoe in more colour ways, styles and designs that I could imagine. These espadrille wedges have been surgically attached to my feet since the day they arrived and my only bug bare being, that they are never in stock long enough for me to buy more styles but this muted cream pair are currently back and cost less than £100.
Some might say I over do the dresses somewhat but when it comes to easy dressing, popping on a gorgeous Summer dress is my absolute go-to for feminine vacation style. I find dresses not only easy to wear though, more than anything they are incredibly versatile with a swift change of shoes and accessories can they can easily be adapted for day or evening wear and below you will find some of my absolute favourites from the Vacation Shop currently.
Having fun with different accessories from hats to sunglasses to earrings to scarves is something I enjoy season on season. But the pretty pastel colours and floaty fabrics of the Summer are definitely one of my favourites. Big round Chloe sunglasses and a nude bag has been somewhat of a staple this season allowing floral fabrics to do all the talking and below I've compiled my must have list of accessories for Jet-Set Style.
