It’s heating up in Sydney (finally) and all this warm weather has me dreaming of margaritas, beaches & palm trees. Summer is my favourite time of the year and this will be the first year in a while hubby and I haven’t booked a quick getaway over Chrissy & New Year so we will get to spend our days enjoying a Sydney summer and I hear the temps are going to heat up something savage.
If you are thinking of a summer getaway this Chrissy, being locally, interstate or international it’s so essential to pack your favourite pieces that are super easy to throw on in the heat and take you from beach to bar every day and night.
Here’s a few of my faves which will achieve just this and keep that luggage weight limit to the bare minimum (for us wardrobe lovers anyway)…
The Bali Tailor – Linen Wrap Dress: An essential and staple. Chuck this number on over your cozzie to the beach, and then slip it back on (cozzie top optional… ooo saucy!) and head straight to the bar. Team it with salty beach hair and some slides and girlfriend you are set to order a pina colada.
Molly & Frank – Bae Original: This cozzie is beyond a staple for me. When I was travelling in Thailand last year, throwing a pair of shorts over this cozzie and jumping on a moped to discover hidden beaches was super handy. Be sure to slip, slop, slap though as the low back cut gave me a savage tan line.
Rue Stiic – Ophelia Dress: Lightweight fabric, handmade, low cut arm holes. What’s not to love about this dress? It comes in two colours, Navy & Tobacco and they are both to die for. Not only is this a good throw on number for the beach to bar while on vay cay, but you’ll live in it at home too. I’m going to confess, I purchased one for myself in Navy and I’ve been a criminal outfit repeater for at least three days this week. Scandal! I just love it.
These are just a few of my favourite things and I guarantee you, by packing these bad boys in your luggage you’ll get away with a few days and nights of outfit repeating and you’ll thank me for it.
