Blogger Collaboration: Hannah's Holiday Top 5 things to pack!

by - Saturday, August 03, 2013


Over this week the blog has been on a holiday theme since, it’s that peak time where everyone decides to start packaging and jetting everywhere or even to the different parts of the British Isles. Well for August’s blogger collaboration Hannah has picked out her top five Holiday essentials to take and pack with for your vacation. You can see my top 5 essentials here amongst other posts within our blogger collaboration. Enjoy!
A hat.
Everybody needs a good hat on holiday, whether you need the protection for fair skin like me or if you just want to look and feel fabulous! I find myself gravitating towards wider brimmed hats on sun holidays as I feel like I have more protection for my neck and shoulders. I bought this one from Dorothy Perkins for my recent holiday to Alcudia: 

  1. A facial sunblock.
It’s important to keep your whole body protected whilst exposed to the sun but especially important to keep the delicate facial area protected. I use The Clinique Super City Block with SPF 40 every day anyway, and I feel that my face is fully protected without being greasy throughout the day. it’s perfect for holiday when you don’t feel like wearing much makeup but you want to be protected.

Aviator sunglasses.
Sunglasses are a must whilst on holiday and the most classic, stylish and universal pair of sunglasses you can choose is a pair of Aviators. I personally prefer a tinted or mirrored pair, but they look just as chic in classic black too! My favourites are by Oliver Peoples, you can buy here: http://www.oliverpeoples.com/collections.html?type=sun

  1. An amazing maxi dress.
A maxi dress is suitable for any body shape, height, skin tone and personality so I really don’t know why some people aren’t in possession of one! They are one of the most versatile items of clothing you can possibly own. Use it as a beach cover up, dressed down for day with gladiators and a cross-body bag or dress it up for evening with wedges, a belt and some kick-ass jewellery. You won’t be disappointed. There are some amazing maxi dresses at Asos here: http://www.asos.com/Women/Dresses/Cat/pgecategory.aspx?cid=8799&via=lhn#state=Rf981%3D3680&parentID=Rf981&pge=0&pgeSize=36&sort=-1

 Stylish beach cover ups.
Beach cover ups, like maxi dresses are also really versatile. Whether you opt for a full length Roberto Cavalli garish Kaftan to a short and sweet crochet number to a simple plain cotton shirt, you can pretty much use anything as a beach cover up as long as it’s light, cool, and shows off your tan! I’m in love with this lace tunic from Glamzelle which I bought for my holiday, if you buy it a couple of sizes up you can wear it as a dress! http://www.glamzelle.com/collections/blouses/products/lacey-summer-tunic
