What's in my Suitcase?

It is not unusual for me to over pack and be overweight (I’ve had many overweight charge dilemmas in the past). However I have got better this year due to sorting out the outfits I want to wear in piles before packing them. As I will be going away for 4 days, I will be using my M & S  Holdall for my luggage,because it is lighter than a suitcase meaning I am able to make full use of the 10kg weight limit allowance.
White & Mint Playsuits - Playsuits are absolute wardrobe essentials; they're gorgeous, lightweight and easy to dress up or down.
Multicoloured Kimono – Can be used as a beach cover up or light jacket.
Sequined Multicoloured Paisley Maxi Kaftan – Although this is a beach item, I think it is way too pretty to only wear on the beach and would wear this for nice restaurant dinner.
Shorts – These are a must-have holiday essential and can be used both in daytime or night-time. I only own denim shorts so I am taking my high-waisted dark blue shorts and a light wash blue pair to wear for different looks.
Selection of tops – I tend to wear plain coloured tops nowadays as they are easily wearable to match other items but I did pack an Aztec print vest top, yellow cami top, white halter cami, Black Silk halter neck and white crop top. Knowing me I will throw in a few extra before the holiday!
Nautical Striped Maxi Skirt - can be worn in the day or evening and easily worn with a variety of tops.  Black/Green Faux Silk Joggers – These are great comfortable trousers, which can be dressed up or down.

Finally most importantly is underwear whilst on holiday, although I only have 2 pictured, the rest will be packed later on, But I like to take mainly black sets and seamless bottoms. Along with a pair of 10 denier tights & a pair of socks especially for on the way back to UK.
I own about 14 variations of swimwear but I have managed to select just 5 items from my collection. I doubt I will use them all but I prefer to have a fresh bikini / swimsuit everyday as it saves me doing any washing on holiday.
Halterneck Embroided Gem Swimsuit|Multicoloured Diamond Swimsuit|Floral Bird Halterneck bikini|Nautical Striped bikini| Neon block coloured bikini
Bikini waterproof bag – Perfect for storing wet swimwear but could be doubled up as an additional clutch.  Beach towel – I like to use my own towel at the beach as it is the right size and I can distinguish my towel from the rest on the poolside/at the beach.  I also take a big floppy hat to protect my eyes from the Sunrays and prevent heatstroke.
Blogger Programme tote bag – Great as a beach bag or if I go exploring on an excursion.
Jewellery – As it can weigh, I will only taking my Gold Body Chain which is great worn with swimwear, my pink robed and gold necklace and my Blue statement necklace.
Limited Edition Primark Gold Clutch – Black is a neutral colour so it will match any outfit plus the gold hardware makes it look expensive. Black faux croc & leopard pony waist belts – Again black belt will match any outfit but the leopard belt will instantly update an outfit to look fierce.
Nude Patent Pointed Heels – I always struggle when picking out the perfect heels for holiday as it is no point packing a lot as you never wear them all, so I am taking my Nude pair as they are smart,  dressy and a neutral colour. Black Jelly Heart Flip Flops – They’re great for the beach especially when you are required to wash off sand because they are waterproof & won’t go mouldy.
 I will also take my Black Faux Snakeskin Pumps which will be worn on the day I fly out as they are comfy and perfect to travelling.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my full breakdown list of items I will be taking to Ibiza. I will  be doing an Ibiza travel diary after my holiday.

Are you going away for some last minute Sun before Winter arrives?

Peace & Love
