Summer Holiday: What I’m packing

I’m going to Majorca for a week in July and this rain has got me thinking about sunshine and ice-cream. This year I have a new carry on case to take with me. And that’s all I’m taking. So what am I going to pack?

Luggage

Let’s start with my new case, recently bought online from bags etc, which if I’m being honest is because you can collect Avios via them and it was a really great price.

Swimsuits

I have three swimsuits on the go at the moment. My favourite is the bright green halterneck. They are all from Marks & Spencer, because I trust them, they keep their shape and hold things where things need to be held. No itsy, bitsy triangle bikinis for me.

Shorts

I have a few pairs to pack. Two from H&M, one Dotty P and one Marks & Spencer pair. They all have a similar length and three of them have excellent pocket depth.

Dresses

Gap wins here. I really only tend to wear dresses in the evening, when going out for dinner, when it’s a little cooler. Three dresses: two white, one black.

Tops

Keeping things simple with a couple of vests, and a couple of t-shirts.

Shoes

Wearing sneakers on the flight, black haviannas, m&s silver sandals.

When I travel I like to be comfy, and I get super cold on airplanes, so I’ll be travelling in my nike leggings, Converse sneakers, a long t-shirt and a hoody. I like to have a sensible option to travel in, because you just don’t know what weather you will get when you arrive back in the UK. After a week of sun, the UK cold can be a bit of a shock to the system. I have also been caught at an airport at 1am due to a delayed flight in a sundress – that chilly at 1am!

In terms of make up and toiletries, I’ll likely take a very minimal amount of make-up and we tend to buy sunscreen and shampoo etc out there for Jack and I to share. One of the perks of this trip is we’re staying at my Grandparents flat, so we can leave anything not finished for my sister and parents who are staying there the week after us.

Are you of on holiday this summer? Do you have any tips for packing light?
