Somewhere along the line I picked up the word "holiday" for vacation and it stuck. Another thing that I can't shake is my holiday wardrobe. I got married in 2010 and bought a couple nice things to wear on our mini-moon and now it's 2013 and I'm still rocking them. I have one shelf in my closet with bikinis, kaftans, and vacation wear and it makes packing a breeze.
During the day, I wore a swimsuit and some kind of cover up, and sometime toward the evening I would shower (hair washing was ad hoc) and put on something respectable.
|Dress is from Bloomingdales....some weird brand I've never heard of. I find this dress confusing, but it's comfortable and lightweight.|
|Christmas Eve Dinner I put on this Etro Dress (previously worn HERE) and attempted to do something with my hair.|
|This is the epitome of cheap fashion. Leopard shirt, H&M. White Shorts, Old Navy. Belt, C.Wonder. I also did a fishtail braid (I learned HERE) and taught our butler, Sinita.|
|Another bargain...Wrap Dress from Target (Merona brand). I also got the bracelet from one of the vendors on the beach for 8 dollars. #Winning|
|This is a beach cover up from Accessorize (I think they have it in the US) in the Heathrow airport. I don't remember the exact price, but I think it was about 25 pounds. As far as I'm concerned, it looks pretty Missoni-esque and you cannot beat 25 quid. Fake Missoni = Fissoni?|
|Another affordable outfit. White lightweight shirt, Kardashian collection from Sears (not my proudest moment). Navy Shorts, Old Navy. Belt, C.Wonder. Gold Clutch, Lily Pulitzer.|
|Mini-Moon @ Rosewood Mayakoba, June 2010|
|I packed VERY light, which meant there was plenty of repeating outfits. Apparently I also decided to rock my shorts "Mom" style and pull them up past my belly button.|
Do you shop for vacations/holidays? I used to, but I haven't purchased a single item for my last two trips. I am not too proud to repeat outfits like a boss. Next trip I am buying a couple new swimsuits because it's time.
Do you prefer skirts or shorts for warm weather?
