Yes it’s that time of year where our social feeds are being flooded with photos of influencers, celebrities and friends vacationing in Europe: Sun soaked, glistening skin, enjoying gelato for lunch and sipping on endless Aperol Spritz.
Jealous much? So are we…
Unfortunately here we are, still in Australia, enduring the cold weather; heater on full blast, trying to make it feel like the climate of the french riviera.
Alas, here are some collages of what we would be wearing if we were holidaying it up in Europe, or if you’re lucky enough to be going, some inspiration.
Dress for the occasion. If you’re going on a wine tour through Tuscany maybe wear that beautiful red linen top you packed. Trust us!
Sun protection always. Pick up a gorgeous straw hat from a local street vendor from your city of choice. Pack a few different pairs of sunglasses, they don’t take up very much room and can be a fun way of accessorising without much effort.
Hands free exploring. Belt bags are officially cool everybody. We suggest one that can be attached and detached from your belt, with an extra strap to convert it to a shoulder bag.
All the time spent out in the sun can really do some damage to your skin, so make sure to keep up with your SPF application. 50+ for your face, and that cute straw hat that you bought.
Coming from Winter where your skin hasn’t seen the sun in months we would also recommend a bronzing oil. Our favourite is from Bali Body. While you add that to your online shopping cart, we suggest you pick up some of their Pineapple tanning oil, it smells like a holiday in a bottle.
