Good mornin' folks! I'm currently writing this post sat in Caffe Nero, with a super large coffee on hand after approximately 5 hours sleep, after landing back at the flat at 2.30AM this morning from a glorious week on my hollibobs. I have SO many photo's and so much content that I can't wait to share with you guys, so this is my first attempt at organising the thousands of photo's that are now sat on my camera. HELP ME.
I thought I'd start with an airport style outfit post, 'cause if you're anything like me, what you wear for travelling can be just as tricky a decision as what you take in your suitcase. Like, do you go for style or comfort? Jeans or your trusty old joggers? Do you dress for British weather or for Greek weather? Jacket or not? Decisions, huh?
Even though I'm a super anxious flyer, I LOVE the whole travelling part of the holiday. Getting the airport, grabbing a coffee, browsing through duty free with all the excitement of your week to come. I just love it.
I opted to wear my Topshop Joni jeans for the flight, mainly because I knew I needed to take them anyway, and they're incredibly comfortable. I paired them with my Primark blue and white pinstriped shirt, and my 'clumpy's', as Tasha has fondly nicknamed this style of shoe. If I'm being completely honest, I wore these shoes for travelling mainly because they were my heaviest shoe and like, luggage weight allowance and all that. BUT I knew they would also be comfortable, and they made me feel slightly more 'I'm on holiday!' than my converse would've!
I can't describe my love for this shirt either, if only because it makes me feel all grown up and stuff. And, if we excuse how all creased it got on the train to the airport, I love the way it fits. It's slightly tailored, but slightly slouchy. If that's even a thing. Probs not.
I accessorised with my ultimate fave Daniel Wellington watch, and my Thomas Sabo bracelet that I've fully re-kindled my love for recently. And of course, my sunglasses.
I switched thing's up a bit on the way home, due to us leaving the hotel at 7pm, it was still pretty hot and we had a 45 minute coach ride back to airport. We'd also been warned about the queues at Santorini airport (that's another, terribly long story..), so I switched my 'clumpy's' for my even more comfortable Birkenstocks.
I switched to my black bikini bandeau top underneath the same shirt, if only because my bra would've really hurt my sunburn. Whoops. Tucking my shirt in, but leaving it slightly unbuttoned, also ensured I kept cool on the journey. Until of course we got on the plane, at which point I buttoned up and wrapped myself in my scarf because omg aircraft air con. SO COLD.
What are your go-to's when travelling?
