So we spoke about what to wear on an island getaway here, but what if you're not travelling to an exotic location?
When bare skin and bikinis are a no go, I pack classic, simple pieces that I can wear over and over without anyone noticing because, well... when travelling, I've usually got way better things to do than deliberate over an outfit – like eating.
I'm off to London on Wednesday and summer's in full swing there, but considering it's winter here and I've been living in nothing but big coats and cosy knits, I figured I needed a few new summer staples to pack.
Cue... my new black leather backpack. I've been lusting over a similar one by The Row (but a girl's gotta eat), so I was so excited to score this one for my trip! It's the most beautiful soft leather and simple shape. These photos don't even do it justice.
I like to pack versatile pieces when I travel, and I found heaps of amazing holiday staples on Topshop, including this boxy white shirt dress which works for day and night (+ a red lip, heels and a clutch).
Throw a pair of black cat eye frames in the mix and you're good to go.
What pieces from your wardrobe do you always pack in your suitcase? x
