When packing for an event I always start from the top of my head and go down to the tips of my toes.

So for example grab your beach bag and use this list for packing for a day at the beach…

  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Togs – wear them obviously!
  • Throw over tunic/dress
  • Rash Vest
  • Towel
  • Sandals

+ brain and body fuel

  • Book
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Coin

Apply this principle when packing for your whole holiday.

Think of a few outfits from head to toe including all your underwear & accessories.  Lay them out on your bed.  Make sure these can mix and match then add other items from your wardrobe that will create more outfits with the items you already have.  If they all intermix then you can style yourself when you’re away.  Looking at it all on the bed before you pack, if there is one odd man out – take it out.

Keep it simple and enjoy the anticipation of that fabulous holiday.

PS this women’s crop rashie is from my Take Cover range I did a few years ago.  They were manufactured in Brisbane Australia using my design and pattern. I still have some stock and have listed this on eBay under the seller name catca08.
