Whoever was it that said ‘she who travels the lightest travels the furthest’ set a cracking challenge for your typical fashion industry insider. Much to the joy of every airline that I’ve ever travelled with, packing lightly is not this girls forte.
Amongst suitcases of samples for photoshoots, a plethora of camera equipment and maybe .. just maybe, a few sneaky purchases along the way, there is typically little to no hope of yours truly clocking in under the limit of the luggage scales.
So try to imagine the same kind of girl on holidays and there you have moi I’ll shamelessly admit. Squeezing one too many bikini’s into my carry-on and attempting to convince the check in staff that a 12kg tote is not a big deal.
Well thanks to my lovely friends at Net-A-Porter I took it upon myself to go on vacay with a Jet-A-Porter list of versatile essentials, all a girl could ever need for her summer vacay.
A wrap skirt from Marni that can be worn three ways, a classic polka-dot bikini and pair of Prada leather pool slides .. say no more. Just some of my favourite pieces for your summer get-a-way and the answer to your savvy lust-list packing guide.
But the problem you see here is that there were just too many good options and far too many pieces that met my jet-set needs. So next time you see me at the airport with one too many suitcases in tow, I’m probably heading off on vacation and I’m happy to let you know, that less is more is never a good option, now pack your bags and let’s go..x
