Relaxed Holiday Wear

When you're out sight seeing on holiday, you need something relaxed and comfortable. So I reach for three-quarter length or capri trousers, a t-shirt and my glittery flip flops.  The trusty "bum bag" (or fanny pack, as you call it in the US) was a present more than 10 years ago, and came from Marco Polo. I use it on nearly every trip. Sharing this with the lovely ladies of Visible Monday.

Holiday Essentials

I'm on holiday now and sunning myself in Greece.  Here are a few of my holiday essentials, in terms of jewellery:
  • The Greek style earrings, top left, were bought on the island of Hydra a few years ago. They only come out when I'm in Greece!
  • The charm bracelet was purchased in Oludeniz, Turkey. The idea was that I would buy a charm every year. It didn't pan out, except for the pineapple charm which I bought in Hawaii. The charms are larger than usual and it's hard to find any of the same size. And now that Pandora and Trollbead type charm bracelets are all the rage, the bracelet looks a little bit....heritage?  I try to avoid heritage jewellery at all costs. Very ageing! But I do wear it on holiday. I love the way it tinkles.
  • The pink necklace is a new purchase for this year from Etsy.
  • The "bag dangler"  (I don't know what you call them?) was a present from my friend Wendy and will be ideal for dangling my little evenings bags from the table in the bijou restaurants.
I'm also taking a couple of new purchases from Guerlain's Terracotta range, which to me personifies summer. This year, a delicately perfumed body oil with a slight golden sheen, and a new coral cheek tint.

Anyway, these are my favourite things that I will be wearing on Visible Monday in Greece!

I've a bit of a thing for orange so far this summer.  This is a great dress for smart occasions at work, or just smart occasions in general. I love the perspex orange daisy necklace.  Sorry the lighting is a bit weird --- I am still trying to learn the functions of the camera!
