My Australia outfits
One of the best things about going on holiday is planning your wardrobe for the trip. I love buying all new outfits and then planning out what I’m going to wear for what during the holiday. Here’s what I wore during our three weeks in Australia…
Swimwear and cover-ups
Of course, one of the first things to consider when you’re going on holiday to a hot destination is your swimwear – especially if you’re going to be spending plenty of time on the beach or by the pool. I did a quick ASOS haul before I went, as there was a big sale on and purchased a couple of bikins and swimming costumes. I also got a bikini from Next and one of my other favourites is Red Herring at Debenhams. I’m quite fussy when it comes to swimwear. I like wearing a thong bikini bottom with a full coverage top. I also like one-piece swimsuits too! It’s more about how they fit than how they look for me! Comfort is everything.
I was also sent this gorgeous one-piece from UK Swimwear and I wore it on our trip to Whitehaven Bay in the Whitsunday Islands. It’s perfect for pool parties too, so I’ll probably recycle it on my trip to Ibiza in June.
I love something that you can just throw on over your swimwear and this tunic from Miss Tunica is perfect for that. With the added embellishment round the neckline and sleeves, it can take you straight from the beach to the bar for some tropical cocktails. White looks awesome with a tan too!
My secret weapon
My Australia uniform was mainly printed vests, vintage Levi’s, Haviaianas, RayBans and my secret weapon – shapewear from Miraclesuit. There’s nowhere to hide when you’re wearing high-waisted shorts and these pants suck in your tummy and smooth your problem areas – I never leave home without them!
Not forgetting my skin care
The most important thing to wear when you’re on holiday is your sun cream. The sun is super strong in Australia and so it’s important to wear SPF 50 and to keep applying sun cream throughout the day to keep your skin safe. This holiday I tried out Calypso‘s sun cream range and it kept me from getting burnt and left me with a long-lasting tan.
