Summer holiday essentials wish list

Summer holiday essentials wish list

We’re off to Turkey for a wedding at the end of the month and I’m woefully under prepared! Up until today I was still scrambling round for ‘the’ bikini, this is in part due to the fact that we’ve not had a beach holiday in years. I’ve ordered this one from Boden, and even managed to get a good discount as the top is in the clearance section.

Though it is safe to say I won’t look anything like that in it!

This purchase got me thinking of a few extras for our beach holiday, like this hat (that’s currently in the sale ;)) from my new obsession Joanie Clothing,

Slogan sun hat – Joanie Clothing

 

Here are a few more ‘essentials’ on my summer holiday wishlist

denim ‘boyfriend’ shorts- H&M | Saltwater Sandals | straw beach bag – Joanie Clothing

 Revlon Colorstay Matt Balm -Boots* | scent free sun lotion – Green People* | embroidered kaftan – The White Stuff 

I love the sun lotion from Green People, it’s the only one I’ve found that doesn’t cause a reaction on my skin. It’s a must have for any beach holiday in my book.

What do you think of my list?

Have I missed any essentials off?

    Gorgeous pieces!! I especially LOVE the White Stuff dress and that bikini looks fab. We’re off to Spain in 10 days, I just can’t wait. This post has really got me in the mood xx

    Love the bikini, it’s gorgeous. I’m in desperate need of a couple of new ones after having to alternate the two I owned whilst we were in Croatia. And that hat is amazing! x

    Oh love the bikini. Of course you will look just as gorgeous. I love your holiday essentials. Maybe add a good book and magazine to go with it and you are set. Love the hat too! I am huge into my summer hats this year. #wrc

    I love the bits you’ve picked out. We go away on Thursday and I still feel completely unprepared. I have a basket full of stuff on ASOS that I can’t decide whether to order or not. It’s all stuff I want, but don’t necessarily need. Including a big sun hat like the one you picked out here!! Plus I really want one those straw bags that’s doing the rounds on Instagram, but £80 for a straw handbag just seems ridiculous!! xx

    Lovely selection and wow a wedding in the sun, sounds lovely. I love a denim shorts, saltwater, costume and kimono. A kimono is a must for me. I also love head scarfs. x

    Denim shorts or a little floaty skirt are my must-haves for a ‘hot’ holiday, though we’ve not had one of those for years.. That bikini is lovely and you will look fantastic in it I’m sure 🙂

    I’m loving the embroidered hat! It’s a distant memory since we were abroad, so I’m not clued up on essentials xx
