Holiday Packing

I'm not in the best of moods today as I absolutely hate packing.  I am a 'just in case' kind of girl, I carry the 'kitchen sink' with me pretty much every day.  So having to condense 4 peoples clothes for a week into two suitcases is pretty much my idea of hell.  That being said, I am pushing on through and trying to really cut down as we will spend most of our time by the pool (please don't rain in Spain, please!) and then evening outfits will be relaxed ones and worn again (and washed!) for a town trip in the day (Zara/Mango, I am coming for you with our great Euro exchange rate!).  Fatface were kind enough to contact me to help me on my way and sent this cute cotton shirt.  How nice is the detail?  As well as a new hat, my last one has just gone in the rag bag bin, it really wasn't suitable to wear anymore.

Fatface Shirt £28
Fatface hat £35
Tommy Hilfiger shorts and belt; TK Maxx (years ago!)

Very tempted by this little number also from Fatface £35 
I haven't bought anything for my trip to Spain.  It was a last minute holiday as thankfully the eldest has an inset day on the Monday making it slightly cheaper to return that day.  Don't get me started on how flights/holidays ridiculously over inflate their prices in the school holidays.....seriously, it makes me so mad that they can get away with it.  If you have kids that aren't at school yet - go away now!

    1. I can't believe we really culled it and still have outfits not worn! That's my aim now, to get away and wear exactly what I've packed! x

  4. Finally! A kindred spirit! I despise packing. Awful, awful job. And like you, we always went away in May when DD was younger. So much cheaper. Hope you have a fab time and that the sun shines every day x

    1. I even got flustered packing it all back up the other end Helen. Mind you, there were additional purchases that didn't make the cramming it all in any easier, oops! x
