As I’m finally starting to pack my suitcase ready to see in the new year in Thailand, my mind has turned to what I’ll be wearing to do it in. I have a case full of general (black, of course!) holiday clothes, but I hadn’t given a lot of thought over what to wear for the big night. With the heat and humidity I’ll be keeping things as fuss free as possible, relying on simple pieces in loose, airy fabrics.
If NYE isn’t a good enough excuse for a glittery, star covered pair of stilettos then I really dont know what is. Sadly, my baggage allowance and already stuffed suitcase isn’t going to allow me to take a pair of shoes that I’ll only get to wear once. So I guess I’ll need to find another excuse to buy these beauties from Dune instead!
The sale at Topshop has been particularly good this year, and I’ve had my eye on quite a few pieces lately. This ruffled playsuit is top of my list though. Perfect for day or night it’s a great multitasker that will be ideal for packing, and is something I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of back in the UK too. I refuse to buy clothes just for going on holiday, so this is important. I don’t understand why you would spend a lot of money on loads of cheap pieces just to throw them in the attic and then probably do the same all over again next time, it’s so wasteful and kind of ridiculous. That’s why even though I’ve brought myself a few new bits and pieces in the sales, they’re all things I’ll wear in the summer here too. You definitely won’t be seeing any instagram photos of me in white, or summery brights!
