The Simple Tank With A Twist

I try my best to pack light, so I often lean into simple basics with a twist. For example, tops I could wear with several different bottoms to look instantly put together.

The Bikini

While I’m a minimalist, summer holidays are always the time to inject a little colour into my look and my favourite way to do it is with swimwear or accessories. This bright orange bikini is a great example – alternatively, I love a colourful hat.

The Silk Trousers

Along with a couple of pairs of denim and cotton shorts, I always take silk trousers with me on holiday. I have them in almost every colour now and wear them all summer long. I love how breathable and comfortable they are.

The Floral Dress

I’m obsessed with floral midi dresses on holiday – there's just something so easy about them. They make me feel confident, feminine and put together. HouseOfCB, Réalisation Par, Reformation and Aje are some of my favourite brands.

The Sunglasses

You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of black sunglasses. I wear mine with almost every outfit, year-round. If I were opting for a second pair, my go-to would be a tortoiseshell rectangular style.

The Jewellery

When it comes to jewellery, I’m all about gold and pearls. They complement my skin tone and add something extra to my outfit. Bruna The Label is one of my go-to brands.
