Fashion | Holiday Outfit Day to Night Feat. Tallulah's Threads



Holiday outfit planning - the struggle!

So every year I have the same dilemma. I know I need to get myself sorted for my holiday, buy some holiday appropriate clobber and a few good bikinis, however I somehow manage to ALWAYS leave it till about a day before we jet away to actually buy anything. 

I think when it comes to buying bikinis I purposely leave it till the last minute out of hope/sheer desperation that if I have a few more goes on the cross trainer my food baby will miraculously go down and my thighs will shrink. But of course that never happens, and I end up having to do the mad last minute dash to the shops trying to choose something decent from a rubbish selection of bikinis, whilst frantically searching for holiday dresses etc.

This year I decided to make life a little easier and have already invested in some good bikinis AND started outfit planning properly, wheyyy. In today's post I wanted to show you how I save precious suitcase space by turning a day look into a night one, using the same dress. The dress I'm styling in today's post is a lovely hawaiian print number, sent to me for review by the lovely Tallulah's Threads. I don't think you can get more holiday esque than Hawaiian prints! Hope you enjoy :)


The Day Wear Look - Comfort & Fringes












Hawaiian Print Smock Dress* - £39 Tallulah's Threads / Suede Jacket - £59 Mango / Necklace - Missguided / Green Fedora Hat - Topshop / Black Boots - Miss Selfridge / Black Fringe Bag - £35 Miss Selfridge

If there's one thing I've learnt from going on holiday it's to make sure you pack some god damn comfy shoes for the day treks and exploring, otherwise there'll be serious sore feet regrets. That's why I chose my comfiest Miss Selfridge booties for this day wear look - they may have a wedge heel but they're super comfy for me and perfect for being out and about in.

Accessories wise I added a chunky belt, some turquoise jewellery and a cute black fringe bag which I thought was the perfect holiday outfit addition. I also added my favourite suede Mango jacket and a dark green Topshop fedora to keep the sun's wrinkle beams away.



The Night Look - Simple & Classic Accessories 








Hawaiian Print Smock Dress* - £39 Tallulah's Threads / Black Strappy Wedges - £12 Primark / Black Clutch Bag - Accessorize / Gold Necklace - Boohoo

It's easy peasy to take this outfit from day to night, I just ditched the boots and chunky belt in favour of a more classic thin belt and some black strappy wedge heels. I also swapped the large fringe bag for a simple black clutch and put on a classic gold necklace. I think this would be perfect for heading out for a meal and (plenty of) cocktails!


And there you have it, my day to night looks. If you haven't checked out Tallulah's threads already then please do so here - they've got lots of cute dresses with fun prints and some adorable accessories! You can even get a cheeky 15% off using the code GABBY15.

Hope you enjoyed and see you again soon!

  9. I tend to wait until the last week as well. I'm going on a beach trip soon, and somehow I have miraculously managed to get all my clothes in order a few weeks in advance. I like how you take the dress from day to night, makes things so much easier and on vacation you definitely want simple!
