My fashionistas, it is highly probable that I might be some about 30,000 to 40,000 feet high flying through great circle route, passing over polar regions while you are reading this post. Yes, as said earlier, I’m making my maiden trip to South America for an action packed two weeks of my life. By now, you all know that I love to be organized. It’s critical for me—if I don’t plan ahead, my stress level reaches to high point. When it comes to packing, it really helps me to have a regular list of what I’ll need for different trips. I go away on holidays as much as I could afford, so it’s particularly important that I have an all-day list down pat. Knowing your essentials not only means that you can pack in just a few minutes, ok, may not be in few minutes but at least an hour or two—a huge plus when you’re leaving from the office (yes I did that too when I was traveling to West Coast earlier this year, or on an unexpected weekend getaway—it also makes it so much less likely that you’ll forget something. Ever show up at the beach without your suit? You know what I mean;)
This is going to be my third International, in fact third Inter-continent holiday this year. So, here are five hero-items that will travel with me for a great couple weeks away from grey and gloomy London weather.
A red It Suitcase: World’s lightest-weight collection, this IT luggage is easy to roll, and moderately durable—this really is the ultimate suitcase. I love my luggages to be red, so my hand luggage is also a red hold-on bag. Stylish yet do not get dirty easily.
Nike Neon Running Shoes: Vacation for me only feels good if I get to dress up according to the places and its culture. I stay away from the usual touristy outfit- running shoes, plain t-shirt and shorts as you must have observed! This time round, I am going to do it slightly differently as I’ll be hiking to visit one of the seven wonders of the world- Machu Pichu in Peru. So, this pair of calssy yet comfortable Nike shoes will visit Machu Pichu with me:) Who says you can’t go glam in trainers?
A Colored blazer: This Magenta blazer from Zara’s Autumn-winter collection is the perfect throw-and-go layerings for Argentina’s spring weather now—they’re super comfy, and never look wrinkled. I have an occasion in my mind to do justice to this classic piece of clothing. I am going to pair with a pair of ivory brogue from River Island and will be full-on match-o-much with a pair of cropped trouser from the brand.
A Maxi dress: A black maxi-dress is the most iconic piece of clothing that you should never leave your home without for a holiday- be it Summer or Spring. This will bring the neutrality against the rainbow colored houses in La Boca area of Buenos Aires, similarly at night, even when I’m at the beach or at a dinner date, I like to have a great, comfortable flowy maxi dress. They are my go-to outfit when on holiday.
A kaftan: I love these long kimono style kaftans crowding in everywhere from high-street to runway this year. I love them for covering up when I’m at the beach. And I can also layer them on top of a black turtle neck jumper in Spring weather of Buenos Aires. They’re cute, easy to wash and pack super light.
Of course, I’m always the most efficient packer. Sometimes you just need a few pairs of heels for cosy dinner date and sandals for the beach.
I may not be able to blog while I’m away as some of the places I’m visiting will have no access to high speed broadband internet. As much as I shy away from any plans or making a fuss over my own birthday, but since I share a part of my life with you all, so thought it would be apt to let you all know that I’ll be spending my birthday(9th September) this year in South America. Drop me a line at the comment section with your suggestions on what look I should try on my birthday this year. Like always, I hope to come back with lots of pictures with momotions= moments+ emotions.
Stay tuned, stay stunned!
