Holiday Wardrobe: What To Pack

I don’t know about you, but I’m a total summer girl. I just gravitate towards pompoms, kaftans and beachwear, it makes me feel excited for warmer climes and the possibility of palm trees. But even if your summer doesn’t have palms or beaches on the horizon, I’ve put together a few holiday essentials here (mainly because I enjoy browsing, so just humour me here).
