Easy Peasy Holiday Outfits…BaliStyle

Holiday outfits can be so tricky. If one key piece is missing, the whole outfit can be, sort of… blah!! The NUMBER ONE TIP is to PLAN your outfits! It’s worth investing the time beforehand so you won’t end up with a suitcase full of mismatched, unwanted bits and pieces! It’ll make holiday dressing a breeze. Here are some tried and tested AndAndrea tips to make holiday dressing speedy and easy peasy!

ESSENTIAL: Pack one pair of  WHITE SHORTS. These CR cuffed, linen shorts are oldies, but still get packed on every single tropical trip. They team well with loose tees, are versatile and semi-dressy.

ESSENTIAL: Pack one DENIM SKIRT. Any length. Old, frayed or faded. Can be worn with an assortment of tops, over bathers, to brekky or shopping. No ironing and easy care.

ESSENTIAL: Pack one pair of DENIM SHORTS, several lightweight SCARVES and one TAN BELT.

OPTIONAL: Pack a VEST. This loose, cotton throw on vest is from LookFeelBe in Maylands. It’s lightweight and a perfect layering piece. It can be worn several different ways and comes in loads of colours.

OPTIONAL: Pack a pair of wide legged, PATIO PANTS and a few sparkly, DRESSY TOPS for drinkys and dinner. There are so many nice bars and cafes in Seminyak.

SHOES Tip: Comfy thongs and sandals for day, metallic flat sandals for evening. If heels are a must, then low wedges are the go! This time, one pair of ankle boots came along and were very handy for both day and night!

OPTIONAL: Pack a TUNIC. A wardrobe staple. It’s a casual dress that can be dressed up or down. Perfect if you go to KuDeTa for Sangria!! This one above is by Manning Cartell.

OPTIONAL: Pack a SPECIAL DRESS! Just in case you go to oolala, Metis!! This strappy Flannel dress, is mullet shaped (shorter at the front, longer at the back). It’s a lightweight, no iron, silk dress and can be thrown on in a jiffy.

So Lovelies… all of the clothes above are last season’s, or older. Many of you have seen them styled differently in past posts! My plan was to make the most of what I already own and not to buy much. Tip: Go hunting in your wardrobe before you buy new clothes to take away… You’ll be amazed at what lovely things you find hidden away!!
