I once read that a celebrated fashion stylist only ever took well worn clothes on holiday with her and it really struck a chord with me. We all have those favourite pair of shorts that are so sun bleached that they look better with every year that passes or that little dress that you can just pull on and forget about, laid back enough for the beach but still stylish enough to take you straight to the nearest restaurant? You can’t tell many of my holiday photos from one year to the next unless the destination changes but it’s a great pre holiday feeling shopping for something new to take away with you and now that the summer sales start as early as June do we need an excuse?
With my next holiday very much on my mind, I’ve been browsing through my favourite magazines and websites for laid back summer inspiration and I thought I’d share a few of my finds. As my girl crush on Alexa Chung and her wardrobe gets deeper every day, most of the items I’m drawn to are quite tom boyish, but where ever Alexa goes I follow.
