Your Summer Holiday Essentials Checklist


Summer holidays are nearly upon us, so it’s natural to let our minds wander to the holiday season. Lovely cocktails, sunset walks and white sandy beaches. It’s the stuff of dreams. Especially as the weather is still on the cooler side. While it’s nice to daydream, I thought I would share with you some of the essentials that need to be packed for your next holiday.


I suppose it may be quite obvious but a summer holiday normally involves the sun. So it’s essential to be safe and wear the highest factor of sunscreen available. It’s a good idea to take a few factor types away with you. Starting off high for the first few days. The best thing to remember is sunscreen doesn’t stop you getting a holiday glow; it’s just the amount of time you can stay in the sun for. The more protection you have the date you are to the UV Rays.

Sunglasses and a sun hat

While you protect your skin with sunscreen, you must also use sunglasses to protect your eyes and a sun hat to protect your head. The bright light of the sun makes seeing difficult anyway so shades are always advisable. The sun hat will protect the top of your head from burning. The skin you just can’t get to with sunscreen. You can get some real fashionable statement hats these days. So don’t be afraid to go for something a little different.

Dresses and skirts

It’s always nice to pack some new clothes. So if you have a holiday in mind, it’s great to head out to the shops and pick some pieces specifically for it. Things like skirts and dresses will be a welcome choice. A Modest Maxi Dress can look amazing during the day or dressed up for an evening. Skirts can be short or long. Just go with what you feel comfortable in.

Vest tops

It’s essential to keep cool on holiday, so vest tops are a basic essential. These days you can pick some great ones up for reasonable prices. Picking a few different ones in all sorts of colours will go with any skirt you pack.

Bikini or a swimsuit

A summer holiday wouldn’t be complete without a new bikini or swimsuit. There are some amazing styles to choose from. They can be as revealing or as covered up as you want them to be. A nice cover up to go with it would be a lovely addition.

Sensible shoes

The last thing to pack would be sensible shoes. It’s all well, and good wanting to take your heals but the likelihood is that you won’t wear them as much as those comfortable sandals. The paths and roads may not be as even to walk on. If you are staying where there is some walking required, then you will be thankful for those comfortable shoes. Think sensibly. You want to enjoy your holiday and not be hobbling about.

I hope these essential help you when the time comes to pack for your next holiday.

  1. I got the most amazing sun hat from John Lewis last summer, huge, cute, and perfect for wandering and exploring under the sun in! I can't imagine travelling without it now!
