On the Wish List: Take Me to the Beach

Vacation Style

All I want to do right now is lie out in the sun with a good book. I still haven’t scheduled any vacation time, but I often fantasise about escaping from the grips of my MacBook. And – like all fashion nutcases – this daydream also includes a sequence in which I pack for my beach escape.

I’d travel in style with one of Eddie Harrop’s weekend bags, which come in an impressive range of finishings and can also double-up as gym bags. Inside my carry-on you’d find J.Crew’s tie-dye bikini, a lightweight summer dress, minimalist leather sandals, Gap’s boyfriend shorts and handfuls of cotton tank tops.

1. Isabel Marant Étoile at Matches Fashion
2. Gap
3. Catarzi at ASOS and ASOS USA
4. Ray-Ban at Net-A-Porter and Net-A-Porter USA
5. Eddie Harrop at Net-A-Porter and Net-A-Porter USA
7. J.Crew at at Net-A-Porter and JCrew.com
8. 1.61 at Matches Fashion

1.61’s relaxed cotton-blend trousers would be ideal for flying in, and I’d have to wear Catarzi’s straw fedora in-flight because hats are a nightmare to pack. I really have thought it all through. So now the fantasy just needs to become a reality!

Do you also daydream about vacation style? Which fashion buys are topping your wish list at the moment?

  • Breanna

    LOVE the sunglasses! Great find.

    Haven’t been planning a summer vacation sadly, but international vacation to Japan? Yes I have been. It’s not until fall but I’ve already started planning what exactly to bring lol. It’s half the fun of traveling.

      It sure is! What is Japan like in the fall? Are there seasons in line with the UK/US or Australia?

      • Shay

        I’d say it’s pretty similar to the UK/US weather. The fall is my favorite because it’s not too hot nor too cold and you don’t have to worry as much about the rain that comes mostly in spring.

  • Amazing dress and flats!




  • Accademia di Moda

    Absolutely love the floral dress and tie-dye swim suit! Both looks are perfect for the season and we can’t wait to get our hands on ours! The vintage frames and sandals are also very stylish as well!

    I’ve worn my Clubmaster shades to death since getting them last August. They go with everything and look ridiculously chic.
