Dress: c/o New Look
Flats: c/o New Look
For some reason holiday dressing throws the best of us. We're either tempted to wear things we normally wouldn't, or throw a load of pieces in our suitcases with reckless abandon, tipping the scales at the airport and risking that pesky extra charge. New Look has created a whole hub based around this dilemma - take a look at their Style on Tour or Holiday Helper for the ultimate holiday style guide - something I've taken advantage of with this dress.
When it comes to my holiday wardrobe, I try to build mine around a few key versatile items. An oversized shirt dress is one of the first pieces I pack; it can be worn over your bikini to the beach, on its own with flats for a casual daytime look - like I've done here - or dressed up and layered for evening (watch out for my next blog post to see how I wear it come nighttime).
