Trench: H&M
Culottes: ASOS
Shirt: Pull&Bear
Shoes: Topshop
Sunglasses: Rayban

*Stands up* My name is Lucy and I have a problem - I'm getting just a little addicted to these ASOS culottes. I seem to be discovering new things in my wardrobe that they'll go with - sweaters, shirts, crop tops you name it they go with it. It's great to be able to wear something to work which is comfortable in this hot weather for us girls that are little skirt-shy.

So I will try not to do too many outfit posts in these but I ain't promising nothing!

Essential Fashion Staple for a Fabulous Summer Vacay

Tuesday, 22 July 2014

Going on a summer holiday in Ibiza or Greece? Then look your best all the time by packing only stuff that will help you look stylish and fashionable - whether you're sunbathing on a beach, visiting museums or drinking a latte at a case with a good book to hand.
Here are 8 clothing staples that should be packed in your luggage for a fabulous summer holiday:

Not only can this worn at a beach, you can also wear this for a stroll in a park or at touristy museum. It's that versatile. Plus, you don't have to worry about not having a dress to wear for cocktail drinks with a local hottie you just met because a maxi dress can be worn for special occasions.

Protect your pretty peepers from the harsh UV rays by bringing along your sunnies along with you wherever you go.  Opt for  vintage-style sunglasses, like the circle lenses, to stay chic and stylish while holidaying.


Bring at least two crop tops and you're sure to have a cool summer. Such tops are refreshing and sexy while keeping your ensemble laid back.

Not only is this great for casual wear but this can also be worn to a local club if you're up to meeting local folks your age. Just pair this with pumps and you're party-ready!

You'll never know how hot your holiday destination will be until you walk out of the airport, so it's always best to pack pairs of shorts with you. Plus, they can come in handy if your travel itinerary involves lots of outdoor activities, like hiking, horseback riding and many others.

In most cases, summer holidays are all about spending copious amounts of time in the beach or in a pool. If that's what you have in mind, then be sure to bring at least a pair of sexy bikinis to be a total beach babe on your holiday break.

Basic tees

They can come in handy, especially when modest clothes are called for like going to religious temples, for instance. Besides that, basic tees come in handy when you feel the need to wear something less skin-baring.

These playful pieces should definitely part of your summer holiday wardrobe. They're not only comfy and breathable, they can also be styled in any way you want them to look. If you want something casual, pair your romper with flip-flops. For something chic, wear it with a long statement necklace and peep-toe pumps.

The Resort collection by Australian (with a hint of New York don't you think?) brand Bassike has captured my heart entirely. It's perfect minimalism and structured silhouettes echo that of Celine and Jil Sander and just make me want to open several credit cards and purchase the lot!

We've seen a emergence of Australian brands fronting many new trends and moving to the forefront of existing ones a la One Teaspoon and their cult line of denim shorts (still after a pair). Hopefully there's a lot more to come, and if Bassike's new Resort collection is anything to go by then I'm very, very excited!

Blazer: ASOS
T-Shirt: Cos (similar)
Culottes: ASOS
Sandals: Topshop
Sunglasses: Rayban

For me, 'stripes' is a trend I most certainly couldn't stay away from, despite typically being known for simple looks. It adds definition to any outfit you chose to wear them with and can completely transform (or what I've tried to do here, at least) even a simple shorts and t-shirt look into something worth blogging about (IMHO).
You might remember me posting this little darling of a blazer on my blog here a short time ago as something I was lusting after - well I managed to pick it up in the ASOS sale! Now that is patience paying off (literally) right there!

What do you think of this outfit? I've been playing around with different styles of photography lately so still in the teething stages of finding what works for my blog.

Oh, and I know I kind of have bitch face going on here but it was seriously hot taking these photos! SOZ!
