Packing for a Summer Holiday

Tuesday, 19 May 2015

I cannot contain my excitement at the thought that I have finally knuckled down and booked a holiday - and what better place than to HAWAII in the middle of our Winter!? The sunshine is calling and thankfully Blue Bungalow is stocked with just about everything I need...

Now I know it's cold and it may sound rude that this post revolves around summer but I thought it might be useful to consider exactly what you need on a summer vacation or simply a trip to the beach! That way when summer rolls round, or you book a vacation of your own you can be completely prepared!

1. Rainbow Aztec Kaftan Dress $69.96: Shop Now
This kaftan is light weight, colourful and quick to dry - everything you need from a piece to wear over your togs. Because this little number isn't sheer it covers the lumps and bumps AND could easily take you from beach to bar.

2. Walnut Niki Sandals $49.95: Shop Now
The ideal slip on for the summer season. This style is leather so it can easily take you from beach to bar - it sounds like I'm more concerned about the bar than the beach...Mojitos anyone?

3. Monroe Roc Sunglasses $89.95: Shop Now
Eyewear is so, so important! However, I'm sure most of you already know that. This style is stylish AND it has 100% UV protection. They're not just fashion sunglasses! Our Monroe sunglasses have a category 3 UV rating and are warranted for one year.

4. Rolled Brim Cowgirl Hat with Shell Trim $37.95: Shop Now
Slip, slop, slap! Same goes for your head, protect it. There's nothing worse than a burnt scalp when you're on a holiday.

5. Natural Sunscreen $29.95: Shop Now
If it smells like coconut I've already bought it. There's something about that smell that reminds me of the beach! In the case of this sunscreen it is SPF30, all natural and 3 hours water resistant. Need I say more?

6. Knotty Turkish Towel $39.95: Shop Now
If you haven't seen these towels before then listen up! They're super soft, absorbent, lightweight and SO easy to pack. Just roll it up and you'll barely notice the space it takes up.

7. Woven Striped Bag $29.95: Shop Now
A beach bag is rather self explanatory - it fits all the items I've mentioned above and keeps the essentials safe. In the case of this bag it features an inside zip pocket and mobile phone/sunglasses pocket. It will try to keep out the sand but no matter how hard we try it ends up everywhere anyway!

Pssttt, if you're interested we booked to stay at The Modern Honolulu and I am far too excited. Just check out the sneak peaks I've found on the website. Prepare for too many holiday snaps come July. 

If you have the time feel free to leave tips for shopping, eating and exploring in Hawaii?
