I have a confession to make – Sometimes I wonder how I got into this fashion blogging business.  I love packing light and hate following trends. As for my approach to packing, it is usually quite fuss free.


I’m often asked how I get away with packing light, so I thought I’d put together a Lookbook from our recent holiday to the tropical paradise that is Langkawi to show you how little you really need to pack for a week away. I packed a couple of dresses, beach cover-ups and kimonos, a playsuit, my Birkenstocks, and a bunch of accessories. That’s it. I’m a bit of a perfume fiend, so I never forget to pack a bottle or two for holidays. I usually veer towards Boss perfumes (you would know that if you’ve read this post 🙂 ), so I picked two handy travel sets from World Duty Free at Heathrow just before catching our flight.


Here’s the list of everything that came along. Pack light and surrender to the dreams of the sea – trust me you don’t need much when the sea is at your feet and the breeze in your hair 🙂


List of Items

  • Playsuit – More photos and details here
  • Black Beach cover-up – Primark
  • Multicolour Maxi Kimono – H&M

We shot most of these photos at the idyllic beachfront of Casa Del Mar. The hotel offers a potent combination of good rooms, this beach, and the best cocktails on the island. No wonder we spent most of our holiday vegetating on the beach for once 🙂

  1. Love the bright kimono you’re wearing… and also the casual but sexy white shirt look… you and a couple of other friends bring a lot of beauty, color and pizzazz to my facebook 🙂 🙂 mwahh
