What to pack for a sun holiday


It’s officially holiday season and although I’m not going anywhere just yet (my internship and part-time job are keeping me VERY busy) I thought I’d compile a holiday packing list.

We’ve all been there, you pack for holidays only to get there and find your new shoes aren’t cut out for walking around, your cut-off shorts are way too tight and that polyester mix dress is making you sweat buckets!

Here are a few fool-proof buys you won’t regret.

Pom-pom sandals are a cute holiday essential. These cute colorful ones from LaSula have a Mexican vibe.

Check out the LaSula Snapchat if you intend to buy, they always have discount codes and promotions! Plus they would also work for a night out- bringing heels on holiday is a waste of suitcase space.

And for poolside, these Calvin Klein sliders from Asos are a luxury buy but look amazing.

Team them with any of these fab swimsuits and you’ll be set.

Bardot tops are pretty, bardot dresses are awesome! The hippy favourite has evolved into a dress and I’m dying to get my hands on one.

This shirt style denim dress from LaSula comes in two colours, which do you like best?

This tie-dye playsuit is loose and comfortable, ideal for day or night and much better than a clingy dress.

Plus it’s reduced from €24.99 to €14.99 on Bershka.com.

It’s not a holiday until there’s some cut-off denim involved.

All of these shorts are under €20, available from Bershka.com. Click on images from individual prices.

Btw, although I do work part-time in Bershka, I do not receive any kind of payment or incentive to promote their clothes, I just LOVE the stuff!

For a light cover-up, I love this paisley bomber jacket from Prettylittlething.com.

For a going-out top, this black lace-up one from One Nation clothing on Asos Marketplace is ideal. It would look great with culottes.

I’ve become obsessed with Shein.com lately after I got a gorgeous green sequin top from their site.

These cold-shoulder tops are all from Shein.com, all under €20, click images for individual prices.

Standard delivery to Ireland takes about two weeks. Shein usually has promotions and offers every week.



Then you need some simple jewellery to go with everything.

This pearl choker from Shein.com and gold earrings from Missguided are cheap as chips and if you lose them on holiday it’s no big deal! NEVER bring the family jewels to Ibiza…

And a cute bag to put it all in! This holographic one is perfect.

All of these items can be purchased online so go forth and shop!
