WIWT - Day 1 & We're Off!!

Morning ladies so the day has finally arrived & we're off bright & early on our holidays back to Majorca to our favourite resort & hotel for hopefully a huge dose of sunshine, relaxation & special memories.  Plus this year it will be even more special as not only are we due to meet up with friends who also visit at the same time of year, we're also flying out with my Mum & partner who are visiting the island for our first week & although not staying in the same resort we're planning on spending several evenings together.  Plus we've even got friends from our village out there too so a few meet ups with everybody are definitely on the cards :-)

Each year I try & create a capsule wardrobe to take away to make the pain of packing & unpacking easy as well as of course to allow plenty of room in the suitcases for a spot of shopping ;-)

As well as trying to take neutral pieces that can be intermixed & changed by statement accessories I also try & stick to my rule of taking mainly one pieces as it makes things so much simpler.  All you need to do is decide how many dresses you need to take & then pick which ones.  You can see my previous holiday wardrobes herehere & here.

This year we're away for 2 weeks so here's a list of what I'm taking.

As in previous years I've scheduled posts for each day showing you what I plan on wearing & where you can 'shop my style' & then I will upload photographs of my actual outfits on Instagram here & also on my Facebook page here & Pinterest here.

So for travelling here's what I'm planning on wearing.  Something quite different for me in terms of pattern (other than leopard print) & bright colours but I just couldn't resist this new Zara jacket - a great statement number for when the occasion calls for it & with floral prints set to be huge next season I thought it worth embracing.
