What kind of summer has this been? Disappointing I'd say...such a shame I had high hopes for my summer wardrobe after last summers performance but alas, we are sun deprived...in Ireland that is...
So if you're hightailing it off to sunnier pastures even if its just for a few weeks, here's some cute options for you...I sometimes like to avoid wearing shorts, (only sometimes ;-) ) its so hard at times to figure out what top to wear with them, plus it adds more packing into a limited carryon suitcase. And chances are half of the stuff will never see the light of day! Hence I've pulled together some cute dresses and playsuits that are quick and easy to pack giving you loads of space..AND you'll look good pottering around the streets or beachside when you don't want your body too exposed ...well me in that case...my body is somewhat far from bikini ready at this moment in time, (as I munch on a chocolate bikkie while writing this!!). When packing for holidays I like a casual, yet stylish look for daytime...
So have a peek below at some of the cute options available in stores at the moment ....
