I’m heading to New York and New Jersey next month and I am starting to think about what I am going to need to take with me. I really want to be able to take versatile pieces which can be worn both casually in the day or dressed up for the evening. A full outfit diary will be coming once I’m there!
I have a few pieces in my basket at the moment which I thought I’d share with you to hopefully give you some inspiration, whether your off on holiday soon or are just looking for some new pieces to add to your wardrobe.
First up are these khaki shorts from ASOS. I love the colour of these on the website and hope they are this lighter khaki colour once they arrive.
I feel that I will get a lot of wear out of these once I’m back from holiday too. These shorts can definitely be dressed up for the evening with a cami top and a statement necklace. They will look equally as nice in the daytime pairs with an oversized white tee tucked in and a pair of white converse or sandals. These can be picked up for just £16.00 here.
Next up is this taupe wrap dress by Daisy Street at ASOS. I’ve been looking for a wrap dress for a while and hope this will fit as well as I hope.
This dress will probably be something I’ll only wear in the evening, but I will definitely wear it once I’m home and depending on length it could be something I can wear to work. I think this will look lovely paired with a pair of nude courts and a statement necklace. It is really well priced at £14.99 and can be found here.
Next up is this bardot maxi dress from Missguided. I love the style of this maxi and it is different to the usual style of maxi I have in my wardrobe.
The colour of this dress is what originally caught my eye and I thought it would be really nice for the summer rather than my usual black or grey maxi. Although I will probably only wear this in the evening, it could definitely be worn to a daytime event too. I will be pairing this with some embellished sandals and dark blue clutch in the evening. This is currently £35.00 here.
The next piece is probably one of my favourites currently sat in my saved items. This lovely mint green skirt from ASOS.
I saw this piece in a haul video from Dollybowbow and instantly knew I wanted it for my holiday. I think it will look great dressed up in the evening with a pair of heels but I will also be wearing it during the day with a pair of sandals and a striped tee – just as it has been modelled on the ASOS site. The a-line style is really flattering. I have been refreshing the site daily, waiting for it to come back into stock in my size! The skirt is priced at £22.00 and can be found here.
Finally is this black bardot top from ASOS. This is a really basic top which will go with most things I am taking away.
We all need basic black tops as they go with everything, but most are pretty boring and all the same style. I thought that this would add something a little extra to what could be a very plain outfit. I can wear this in the day or evening and it is very versatile. I’m very tempted to get this is both black and white to ensure I have the two staple colours covered. The pack of two can be found here for £18.00.
Most of my holiday shopping will be done on ASOS. This is down to them having such a good returns policy making it easy to return anything that doesn’t make the cut once it arrives.
