Holiday packing!

This post contains gifted items and affiliate links.

Yes, it's that time again! Hands up this is no frills guide to my holiday packing - I say no frills as a lot of what I'm taking you will have all seen before. I tend to drag the usual suspects out holiday after holiday thus a lot of the pieces I'm sharing are no longer available. However I have had some fun finding alternatives for you! 

I'll kick off with a little montage of my holiday favourites.....these are all coming with me again!

The treasure trove that is hi*hi!

Last weekend I grabbed a bit of me-time (with both hands!!) and had a little girls day out. We set off early to visit a boutique in Oxted called hi*hi - it's roughly a two and half hour drive from me. I was introduced to hi*hi about eight years ago by a friend and have visited at every opportunity.....I have blogged about a few of the trips before, see herehere and here. It was a real treat to take some time out to shop properly and it was just the tonic I needed! I have lost the art of browsing around the shops and had forgotten just how lovely it is to walk into a beautifully merchandised store where everything is displayed so that you can see it properly. It was good to get touchy feely with different fabrics and textures and to benefit from the buyers expert knowledge which was like having a personal stylist on hand. Another bonus is the fantastic customer service that you get shopping in this lovely boutique.......it exceeds all expectations. It was a great reminder of how shopping in this kind of environment can be such a pleasure.

So without further ado let me show you what I tried on. I was cajoled out of my comfort zone and into things that really surprised me which is the best place to start I think!
