Outift: What's In My Suitcase

Today's my last day off work until we go on holiday so I've spent the vast majority of the day rummaging through my wardrobe putting outfits together to pack. This is the first year me & my boyfriend are sharing a suitcase (we've tried to do it on the cheap cheaps) so my outfit choices need to be very concise & organised. I've read post upon posts about 'capsule wardrobes' and have always thought 'absolutely no chance' but I'm really surprised actually how easy it'd been to whittle things down.
We're going for 5 nights so I've put together five outfit choices - I hope you enjoy

Night One: 



I'm still loving the whole pastels vibe & couldn't resist picking up these baby blue polkadot shorts. Seriously though, how cute are they? Wearing them it actually looks like a skirt because of the floaty material, I like the security of wearing shorts though - ie: not flashing your knickers at people when it gets windy. A simple pastel top unsimplified with a shed load of neutral jewellery matches the whole outfit perfectly with my mini satchel & tan sandals.

Shorts - Primark £5.00
Top - Primark £3.00
Satchel - Primark £6.00
Sandals - River Island £35.00

 Night Two:



Not that kimono again?!?.. Ha. I absolutely love it & what better way to style a black & white kimono than with a black & white outfit. I'm a massive lover of monochrome, it's something that I don't think will ever go out of fashion. I'm keeping it simple with a white vest top & black quilted shorts. Sometimes when you're on holiday and it's absolutely sweltering I think the simpler the better so I can't wait to wear this one. I went back to primark earlier today & bought the black 'Birkenstock lookelikeys' to match my cream ones - For the price you can't fall off! (I don't know if that's a Northern saying, but you know what I mean) 

Shorts - H&M £11.99
Vest - Primark £2.50
Kimono - Primark £10.00
Sliders - Primark £5.00
Rucksack - Primark £12.00
Sunglasses - Ray-Ban £120.00

Night Three:



My new Missguided playsuit!! I'm so excited to wear this. I'm really glad the camera picked the color up so well, it really is as punchy as it looks! I'm recycling my tan sandals & think they look fab with the colour match barrel bag. Night three is a really simple outfit because I think the lime green colour steals the show. I wouldn't want to wear anything too fussy with it.

Playsuit - Missguided £19.99
Sandals - River Island £35.00
Bag - ASOS £25.00

Night Four:



Another Missguided newie with this dusty pink shift dress. I've cutesied it up with my tan sandals & pastel satchel. In my suitcase I've got my girlie stuff & my grunge stuff but i think this dress will work really well with both. I'm reusing my jewellery most nights but i really love the white feather & pink beads combination with this dress!

Dress - Missguided £19.99
Sandals - River Island £35.00
Satchel - Primark £6.00
Sunglasses - Marc Jacobs £125.00

Night Five:



Yet another Primark beauty with this gorgeous yellow paisley printed skirt. I'm planning on wearing this with a simple grey vest top, black sliders & oversized black 'floppy hat'. I'm not sure they have a more technical name than that but still..

Skirt - Primark £10.00
Vest - Primark £2.50
Sliders - Primark £5.00
Rucksack - Primark £12.00
Hat - Peacocks £10.00

I hope you've enjoyed looking at my outfit choices. It actually made packing that little bit easier - I normally just chuck everything in a case and only end up wearing half of my clothes. Fingers crossed we dont go over our 20kg's!!

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.

  2. Great outfit choices! I have that primark satchel, they are so cute it's hard not to buy them in every colour. I also love the lime green playsuit!
    Well done for sharing a suitcase with the boyf, I'm not a light packer at all so I know I wouldn't be able to do it! Lol. :)

    Love From Twinkle

  3. Love your outfit choices! It definitely makes it easier planning outfits in advance when you have to pack light, although I always take hand luggage only and still never manage to do this!! X
