The Resort Checklist

If you are anything like me and the gloomy weather gets to you, planning a trip to a sunny country is not only fun for the 100 grams of sun that one is guaranteed to receive but also the fun clothes that one can wear.

Resort wear has recently gained alot of accolade, as it takes you right through to summer. Resort wear falls between Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter collections.  The beauty of resort wear clothes is that it can be worn for day time pool side hangouts and evening BBQ’s. I found the perfect dress at Jigaw, the cyclamen dress.  It took me from my day time pool side hang out with friends to the evening dinner.  It is beautifully crafted, with a subtle red floral print.  It can be worn with shorts as a kaftan in the day and a formal dress to the evening party. See how I styled mine below.

I used the same shorts that i wore with he Jigsaw dress above, with another very resort type cover up from EAST.  The cover up jacket is from an old season but serves me well for seasons on end.

No vacation is complete without the perfect sun dress. It is the ultimate staple for the sun-kissed holiday without taking valuable space in the small bags that one has to carry on the low cost airlines in the UK. The Jigsaw cyclamen dress along with my WARM NY suntan dress cut the perfect bill for the sun dresses to carry to my resort vacation. They are so light an breezy and stylish at the same time.

Next up are the separates that are essential to team up with the rest out of the outfits.  I carried an LK Bennett pair of denim  Enya shorts (from a past season), that I used to wear with my Jigsaw Cyclamen dress for the day and for the EAST embroidered cover up.

Whilst it is easy to get carried away with the holiday and wardrobe planning, you actually only need a few items of clothing that can take you from day to night.
