The Travel Edit: Holiday Wardrobe

I love that exciting time when you are about to jet off for a holiday in sunnier climes - especially when the weather is as miserable as it is here in London!  Thankfully, I'm lucky enough to be flying off to Santorini in a few days for some much needed R & R with a big dose of sunshine!

I've been planning my vacation look - based on the fact that we will mostly be pool-hanging, enjoying the views and indulging in summery dinners out - and have rounded up my edit of holiday essentials.  But first here's my inspiration for my holiday look:

Bow Street's edit of holiday essentials

1. Sunglasses - love this classic 'wayfarer' style from & Other Stories, £39
2. Sunhat - This straw number will keep you looking chic in the heat, a bargain at £6.99 from H&M!
3. One piece swimsuit - Forget about the bikini, this summer is all about the one-piece swimsuit, love this aqua snakeskin print from M&S, £35
4. Classic black leather sandals - look great with bright coloured tootsies and a tan - love these Hawaii sandals from Office, £28
5. Beach bag - sling your sunbed and beach-side essentials into this beach scene tote from Seafolly, from ASOS, £30
6. Monochrome beach shift dress - for daytime, wear over your swimwear, for night, remove swimwear and add heels and jewellery. Topshop, £32
7. Pool-side necklace - slip this bronze necklace on alongside a bandeau swimsuit - kaftan optional - for pool-side glamour in a flash, from H&M, £7.99
8. Espadrille - casual shoe of the summer - when pottering about in town after beach time, slip on these leopard print espadrilles ( I haven't embraced pool slides so these are my show of the summer). Kurt Geiger, £40
9. The essential and classic white shirt cover up - there's nothing more chic as a swimwear or beach cover up than an oversized white shirt - love this version from Topshop, £28
