I'm leaving for a cruise today, (Tuesday 9th Feb!) I'm super super excited! All my packing is done, and there was soo much packing to be done. I'm going on a Summer cruise through the Pacific Islands so I needed a variety of outfits to take with me and wear during the cruise. Whether I was on board or off on an island.
I've picked some of my favourites from online stores that fall into the most important clothing categories for when you're packing for a cruise!
Take a peek!
|Shark Bikini | One Piece | High Waisted Leopard Print|
Swimwear! Most important, probably. You should definitely take at least two pairs. So that you have one to wear if one is drying. The shark print on this first one is super cute, and I love the enclosed top. The peplum on the one piece is very lovely and feminine, and the print on the last is not too over the top. I also love wearing high waisted bikini bottoms. You know to keep it all in.
If you forget your bikini on a tropical cruise, well you're not going to be happy.
|Black Tasselled Cami | Kimono | Off Shoulder Playsuit|
Beachwear, because you'll be in swimmers a lot. But often you don't want to just change back into full clothes all the time. Swimming is a big part, on the boat and on the islands you visit. I picked these three pieces because they're cute and can be thrown over swimmers easily.
The tasselled cami is good for throwing on while you're still hanging around the water, for a bit more cover up if you want it. A kimono can make a big difference if you're walking from pool to pool, you won't feel as though you're just roaming around in a bikini. The playsuit can be pulled on in one go, with no buttons so no hassle. Plus it's a full outfit. So you're ready for anything now!
|Denim Skirt | Off Shoulder Floral Playsuit | Denim Shorts|
|Strapless Black Dress | Lavender Backless Jumpsuit | Wrap Around Blue Dress|
I picked these three pieces because they're not too over the top when it comes to formal wear, but you'll still look damn fine in them. The black dress is subtle in it's glamour, but I love the shape of the bodice. You'll definitely wow with the tied up back of the jumpsuit. I still love rocking a jumpsuit. (Even if I have to get them taken up. I'm 5'1!) Also no ocean breeze is going to blow that dress up! The final is gorgeous! Glam but not too uber formal, if you get me. A bit cheeky with the wrapped top.
I'm a big fan of online shopping. There's so much out there, so much to see and so little time. It's also the best way to find sales on stuff. Because they can be easy to miss if you're looking in real life.
There's this sweet new website called Fashion Lane that collects all the sale items from all the best sites. Better yet you can set alerts when your favourite things go on sale! Now that's a feature I'll be sure to be using. Especially when I love shopping designer on a broke girl budget.
I'm off on my cruise!
