The vacation for me starts with the perfectly packed bag. I’m serious, this is the things that make me giddy. I make lists of what I want to pack at least two weeks before we leave. And that is me restraining myself. My husband, of course, is the oposite. Regardless, taking a leaf out of the great Alice Lines for Undone Mag , here are a few of my travelling essentials.
Kimono: I made this out of a curtain we had in our shop, and it goes everywhere with me. My all time fav, Skilfully transitioning from a beach cover up to a light coat to wear to dinner. What a clever Kimono.
Leather Slides : The perfect sandal has always eluded me. I am not a jandal girl, I do not do strappy sandals, but sliders? , they are the best of both worlds, easy to chuck on and the ideal mix od dressy and casual. Brilliant. Thanks Topshop.
Moleskin : Travelling brings out the romantic in me, so I am never without a moleskin and pen. Whether it be to write, to draw, or maybe just to make more lists.
Anytime’s : Although they have been around forever, these are the new kid on the block in our house. I love there heavy thick frame and the tortoise shell is my ‘splash of colour’
Canon mark ii : My old faithful, I love this guy and his 50mm lens. Travelling perfection, un-intrusive and delicious.
#Girlboss : A woman after my own heart, some light reading for layovers.
Meadowlark Stackers: These hold sentimental value, each gifted by very important person to me. But they are also just pretty darn cute. A must have for a pared done vacation look.
Aesop hand cream: Not only am I a sucker for the packing, but this stuff smells divine. Plus, there is nothing like a little hand cream to make a girl feel special.
Other than that, I have formed a nice little capsule wardrobe. That is untill I get an entire wardrobe made in Hoi An. Oh golly.
Keep up with all of our adventures on my instagram
Until next time,
