Pick it, pack it…. – The Spring Break Edit
It’s that time folks. The sun is almost shining, teasing us slightly and getting us excited for more. The official bank holidays are around the corner. School’s out, work is off, you know what to do. You know that time, when the infamous Peter Kaye Quote comes into play. “Picked it, booked it, packed it, fucked off.” yes it’s that time!
We know we just can’t trust the British weather to deliver us the Sun the season should promise, not prepared to be deluged by April Showers, we’re all getting just a little bit twitchy every time yet another holiday deal pops up in our inboxes showing us what we could have won…if we’d just take action and book it already! All it takes is one, maybe two main protagonists in your social group to suggest it, girls trip, holiday, spring break…a few more glasses of wine, “what a bloody great idea” and within a week, it’s done, it’s on and now the dram…what to wear?
Well, have no fear, the stores have pretty much cleared out the winter stock with endless sales it seems and Spring has well and truly Sprung, the world of online shopping delivers even more promising gems in terms of holiday shopping, all those lunch breaks and stolen moments at your desk browsing the best finds, the challenge isn’t so much what to wear, bathos to limit yourself to a few choice pieces (think luggage allowance) with so many fabulous finds out there. So much inspiration to be taken from all those celebrity instagram accounts, just remember you probably don’t have their luggage allowance, or private jet, so let’s find some key must have pieces, you know, the kind once you see you cannot imagine your holiday without them, but you can imagine your own instagram, twitter, Facebook, snapchat, hell everything filled with images of you in theses stunning pieces, and yes they will change your life….holiday photo’s are for life not just for the week away, so it’s important you are suitably prepared.
The options are vast and wide, wedges, sandals, flip flops, trainers, bikinis, tankinis..it’s like being a child in a sweet shop as far as I’m concerned shopping for vacation. But remember ladies, you probably will not wear those 6 pairs of shoes you’ve just packed, maybe your favourite 3, but you will enjoy all the swimwear you have time to put on, cover-ups, throws, kaftans, all winners, super light on the luggage allowance and real easy for pool / beach to …well, pretty much any wear.
So, indulge, shop, book, pick, pack and **** off…meant in the nicest way of course! Spring has Sprung, you need a break that’s more than the Kit Kat variety. Spring Break is a shopping opportunity after all, so what are you waiting for?.
