Hello from Spain! I cannot tell you how excited I am to be on holidays! It has been a long time coming, and having not had two weeks off in two years, I think I might just deserve it! You may have read my Packing Guide from last week and I tell you it was even a challenge to stick to my own guidelines! But, saving €70 on a checked bag for both flights was a good saving and I can take that money and allocate it to my AW17 wardrobe! 

When going on a sun holiday I never spend a lot of money on my holiday style; I only wear these clothes for a few weeks out of the year. But that doesn’t mean I can’t look stylish. Penneys is my go-to shop for all trends (you probably know that by now!) and this holiday is no exception. From shorts to tops to swimwear, I have filled my little case. The main thing I wanted to achieve was mixing and matching. Making sure the tops all match my shorts, and the same pairs of sandals will work with all my summer dresses. 

So I’ve kept the holiday looks very simple. Each of the pieces in my pics have been recent purchases – it’s the transitional time of the year at home, so Penneys have lots of tops in particular that work at home and abroad. To make them autumnal I will just wear a casual jacket over them, and style with some straight leg jeans (my new denim cut for the season!). 

That’s all for now, I’m going back to my tapas and sangria! I’ll be posting all my holiday style pics on my Instagram!
