When I’m off on holiday, my holiday begins on the day that I’m travelling not when I arrive at my destination. I like to get everything that I need to get done by the day before we’re travelling and then I like to switch off.
The night before a trip I usually have a pampering bath, a nice meal and a good nights rest. Then I wake up on the day of our flight and I think of that as the start of my holiday. I’ve become quite anxious of flying in recent years, I’m not scared of flying at all but I’ve become very claustrophobic and quite wary so I find that getting into a routine really helps me to relax before I get on the plane.
I always take time planning my outfits before I travel, you all know what I’m like by now, and the same goes for my airport outfit. I like to be very comfortable when I’m going to be sitting on a plane, regardless of how long its for, but I also like to look nice and put together too. We often go in the airport lounge before our flight and they often have a comfortably smart dress code so I do keep that in mind when choosing my outfit too.
Lime has been my colour of 2015 without a doubt. For some reason this year I have been all about the lime shades and I don’t think that’ll change anytime soon. When I saw this oversized lime top in Yours Clothing, I immediately took it to the changing rooms to try on. Despite having to size down a lot as it is very oversized, I loved it immediately, especially when paired with the black and white floral trousers.
This look was something out of my comfort zone but it felt so right to try something new. I love how comfortable it feels to wear but how on trend it seems too. When paired with my uber comfortable flip flops, I knew this would be the perfect outfit to wear to the airport for my journey to Morocco. It always baffles me when I go to the airport and I see ladies tottering around in sky scraper heels. Literally baffled every time.
Its sods law that all of these pieces are in the sale now when I paid full price for them! You can bag the lime top for only £11, the trousers for only £16 and the flip flops for £10, although sizes are limited with the sandals.

The bag that I took with me was my Longchamp Le Pilage large shopper that I got last summer in the coral colour. This one is new this season and is very similar. It doesn’t match my outfit in the slightest but I don’t actually have a large black bag that I could have used as my hand luggage bag. Whenever I travel I either use my Monogram Speedy 40 or this Longchamp bag and to be perfectly honest, I usually decide which one I’m going to take based on where I’m staying when I’m on holiday and who I’m going with. The Speedy holds A LOT but it isn’t particularly light to carry and it is hard to organise anything in there as it is just one big compartment, plus its nearly £600 worth of bag so if I’m going somewhere where I think my things will be secure in the room and Mr WLL is there to carry my bag, then I’ll take my Speedy with me (I have a bag neck so can’t carry heavy things, I’m not being a princess I promise!) but when I need to carry my bag myself or when I’m unsure whether the place I’m staying at has a large enough safe to fit my bag in, etc then I take my Longchamp one. Like the Speedy, this is just one large compartment inside too with a little pocket but when I’m travelling on my own, I don’t usually carry much, just the essentials and a travel pillow which takes up a lot of room! If you’re looking for a hand luggage bag then I’d really recommend either of these. A lot of the time when I travel with Mr WLL, I take a small handbag too to keep our tickets etc in separately to my Speedy.
My essential item to wear for travelling has to be a scarf. While they look effortlessly chic, they also double up as a lovely blanket for use on the plane. Not only does this keep me warm but it gives me comfort too to be snuggled up in something while I’m on the plane. The scarf I’m wearing here is one of my favourites from Gucci.
