As the British summer has been a bit of a wash-out, I thought I’d reminisce about sunnier times and holidays!
Before I go away I use a bit of fake tan so I don’t stand out like a lily-white beacon on the beach! It also helps me to get into the holiday mood.
Other than that I’m quite last minute when it comes to the planning, and spend the first day realising I’ve forgotten everything! Usually the travel adaptor, toothpaste, knickers etc!!
When I go on holiday, my suitcase essentials are a bikini and something to cover up with – a kaftan or a summery dress usually.
For beach holidays I always take boobtube dresses – they’re easy to slip on and off over your swimming cozzie! I’ve got a stretch-jersey dress which doesn’t crease if it’s rolled up in a bag so it’s ideal as an easy cover-up.
Dressing for the British summer
When I’m at home in the summer I don’t really wear shorts outside of the privacy of my own home, but I do like to be cool so I wear long flowing skirts and dresses.
My favourite fashion trend for summer is the maxi dress, they cover all manner of lumps and bumps!
I also have to make sure I don’t get shoulder-strap tan lines as they may show up on-air, so I’ve got a few boobtube tops and dresses.
How do you get ready for your summer holidays? Hope you’re not as forgetful as me! Let me know by posting a comment!
