Last week I finally got round to sorting out my little man’s passport, it was just one of things that I kept putting off, but I’m glad that I have now and hopefully we will beat the summer holiday rush. Now that all the official stuff is out the way and hopefully sorted, I can now think about where we are going to take our first holiday as a family of three.
As a couple, we like our holidays to generally offer a mix of relaxation on the beach and lots of long walks and sight-seeing to prevent any boredom, so we will be keeping that in mind when picking our destination. I feel a little scared about travelling with a baby and the amount of extra luggage we are going to take with us. One thing’s for sure is that I will remember to pack my holiday essentials that I always like to have when we’re away.
Who needs shampoo and shower gel when sunglasses and a gorgeous maxi dress are far more important to take with you on holiday…priorities!? I always need a big bag to stash all of my essentials in and I love the look the woven straw one above as it will also go nicely with my Breton striped tops and dresses. The current 1950s bathing suit trend looks so stylish and I really like this polka dot one, which looks very figure flattering and hugs you in all the right places. Equally as important is an amazing book, even though I’ve read Cutting for Stone before I could easily read it again as it has become a favourite of mine. A good camera is a must to capture all of those special moments and I like the idea of a card holder instead of a bulky purse to hold all the vital necessities.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS? HAVE YOU BOOKED A HOLIDAY FOR THIS YEAR YET?
