My travelling outfit


I am writing from the south of France - my blogger dashboard has converted itself into french for me! I can now apercu mes articles before publishing them! (please let me know if that is completely incorrect - my limited knowledge of French is not near enough to impress anybody!) Our journey was good, considering we travelled with both baby and equipment this time, and Oscar grizzled a little but was mostly asleep on the plane. When travelling I try to dress in layers as it is often hot in the queues of people and getting off the plane, but chilly getting to the airport. Here are a few recent purchases that I wore when travelling.


Pretty pushlock satchel bag from Accessorize - I can never resist going in to their shop or store, whatever place I am in and the departure lounge was no exception! I absolutely love just wandering round and admiring all of the sparkly displays, paper flowers and pastel hues. I think this bag is an online exclusive - I had been saving up for the Boxing Day sales to get it, but didn't want to chance it disappearing from the site. It's a very pretty pastel pink-beige shade with gold buckles and push lock clasp and scalloped detail. It's large sized and perfect for storing travelling essentials, has lots of space inside, a handle and adjustable strap; even pockets at the side for keeping a phone, handkerchiefs or the odd piece of baby paraphernalia!

This bow shirt and skirt are both from Primark; the shirt is a beautiful mauve grey colour that is almost blush and looks so smart to wear while travelling. It is slightly sheer so I like to wear a vest underneath; it helps to be able to shed layers if the heat is too much. The tie is also removable and I have been lusting after a bow shirt for some time - I think they look so smart, quaint and a lovely vintage twist on the classic blouse.

 The gold buttons and pleats make me feel as though in uniform, but this skirt is a lot shorter! I adore a miniskirt but wouldn't be brave to wear without some sort of tights or leggings; I love it when they make a 'skort' version so I can sit cross-legged! It's a good outfit staple and a very cute addition to any wardrobe.
Have you flown anywhere this summer? What do you like to travel in?

  3. The bag and outfit is so cute! We'll be taking a road trip to another city next week and then flying back to Malaysia next year in February so I hope (pray!) that our little one will behave himself in the plane ride. It's 25 hours of travelling so we're hoping he'll be sleeping a lot in the plane.

  6. Thats a very nice bag... Ultimate in summer are island resorts and beach destination.
    I love listening to mellow Kpop songs that I put in a playlist. Though I cant understand the lyrics (coz im a Filipino) I just love the tune and how it calms me everytime I listen to it.
