Summer Wish List: Holiday Edition!

Hey Kiddos,

Since I'm off to Hong Kong in 2 weeks (eek!) I thought I'd put together a little wish list of all the things I need/want... no NEED before I go!

Hong Kong weather is described as hot, sunny and very humid, so lightweight shirts like this American Apparel beauty is perfect. A flattering, 50s style bikini is great for the beach (and the baby blue stripes will look killer with a tan).

Pretty sandals are always key (and that teeny heel will make them easier to walk in all day - avoid totally flat sandals if you plan to on doing some walking!).

For evening, a cool blazer like this one from Zara will go with shorts and mini dresses, and is great for covering up a little when hitting the restaurants and bars. The midi-length River Island dress is a great choice - summer colours and a sensible length, I would wear this with wedges (and maybe the lavender shirt thrown over it?) come evening time.

I don't like to wear too much make up in the hot weather, but a nice sweep of a vibrant pink blush, a little mascara and pressed powder is all that's needed in the daytime. And of course, what summer look is complete without signature cool-girl shades?

I'm packing light (in order to save room in my case for goodies to bring back!), and I plan on doing a 'how to pack' post before I go!

Any of you ladies got a holiday planned this summer? Or maybe some festivals!

Drea xoxo

  13. I love that River Island dress! I saw a similar one in miss Selfridge that I almost bought. Definitely kicking myself for not doing as it will probably be gone the next time I go.
