If you are anything like me, you will want to pack your entire wardrobe everytime you go away. I mean you never know what the weather will be like. Luckily, airlines have luggage limits which mean I have to cut down my choices. JD Williams asked me if I would like to review their site and I thought this was a great chance to update my wardrobe with some summer essentials.
Maxi dresses are a fantastic item to take on holiday as they can be dressed up or down. They are prefect for a day sightseeing or an evening drink on the beach. Now when it comes to maxi dresses I really struggle with length. I was seriously excited when browsing the JD Williams site as they have a range of lengths. At 5ft 2in I needed to go for their shortest length, and I am so happy that it fits perfectly.
The pattern is beautiful and summery, and whilst tempted to get a black and white one (*cough* that may end up in my next shopping basket) I decided to take a chance which I think paid off.
The beauty of these Crocs sandals is that they can be worn with anything. I would love to take a selection of shoes that match every outfit away with me, but that isn’t possible. Whilst these come in a variety of styles, I went for black so that I could wear them with my maxi dress or swimsuit. They are amazingly comfy and I wore them for our days out exploring Venice as well as down to the beach. Simple and versatile, these are my second must have.
I am a firm believer that life is short and you have to enjoy every moment. On holiday, that means I need to get into the pool with my boys. I have always been a swimsuit kind of girl, and I love this bandeau style one. Unfortunatley it didn’t arrive in time for my last trip, but it will be on its way to Gran Canaria later this Summer. The straps are removable so when you are relaxing in the sun you can take them off to avoid tan marks. However, when your boys dare you down the steep waterslide (Mummy isn’t scared – honest!) then it is always best to put the straps on for extra reassurance.
I have been really impressed with the items I have received from JD Williams. You can check out their full range here. With their varying length maxi dresses, I think I may be ordering a few in the future.
