There's nothing wrong with just a taste of what you've paid for

You know when you are planning a holiday, and it is AGES away, and you basically almost forget about it because it's SO far away that it's like it's never going to happen? And then suddenly, one of your travel companions is like 'OMG SARAH WE GO TO ITALY IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS' and then EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! I AM TOTES GOING ON HOLIDAY NEXT MONTH! I MUST BUY ALL THE THINGS!

Sooo... wishliiist! Here is everything I'm going to look impossibly glamorous in while eating all the pasta in Europe.

You know what I love about this dress? It's not the cute collar. It's not the floaty skirt. It's not the perfect length. Oh, no. It's the fact that I could totally messily drink red wine in this and no one would be able to tell because THE DRESS IS THE COLOUR OF RED WINE. Genius.

I basically want a real life version of the dress I used to wear in summers at school, and this is almost it. I'm not sure how I feel about the cut out bits, but it's ever so cute.

I don't really need to explain this dress, do I? Sometimes a dress is just NICE. And this is one of those. Lovely.

I want to wear flowers in my hair and skip around like a ridiculous tourist, obvs.

I super love this Roxy Shopper bag. I have this leather tote bag that I use constantly, and it's pretty much perfect for days out when I want to take everything I own, including my giant camera. The only thing I don't like about it is that it has no zip - and I like a zip, to shoo off pickpockets. So this bag is pretty much perfect.

I feel like I should be linking to a ton of shoes, too, but I have a whole bunch of really nice ones, and tbh, I intend to live in my flipflops. No rain, please, Lucca!


  1. As someone who spills A LOT, I wholeheartedly approve of the 'red wine dress'.


  2. Love the 'red wine' dress. Having just come back from a week in Italy my advice would be to pack stretchy things - I ate so much pasta I practically doubled in size while I was there... ; )

  3. Oh but with my sensible sally hat on, the red wine dress is chiffon and that shows up stains so badly :(

    The gingham one is SO cute though! Get it, and perhaps tack some lace under the cutout bits so they're more of a feature, less of a peephole?

  4. I laughed out loud at the red wine commment - genius! My perfect dress...

  5. ....also good for snakebite, sangria and vodka & cranberry!

  6. I love that gingham dress so much! I keep talking about actually just buying school uniform... tis the season and all, right?


  7. That gingham dress is LOVELY, I've just got back from Italy and I wish I had the red wine dress as I spilt red wine down my (white) top :(
