Summer is here and that means holiday time! The celebs are taking a break just like the rest of us and this week I spotted Lucy Mecklenbugh at Heathrow airport, heading off on a flight to LA. While the footage of The Only Way is Essex cast on holiday in Marbs being edited for our TV screens, Lucy is off on her summer break. Clever girl!
Lucy’s got a huge suitcase, even though she told me she was only away for ‘a few days’. I guess she has a lot of outfit options in there – from beach to cocktails to dancing. And she had the travelling look nailed, which is equally as important if you want to the destination in style and start your holiday the way you mean to go on.
When flying out from the UK, layering is essential as you don’t want to catch a chill before you’ve got on the plane. For a summer cover-up like Lucy’s, I like the Wallis zip drap ponte jacket. Underneath she has one of this season’s Bardot tops, showing off her shoulders. The Michelle Keegan Scallop Lace Bardot top at Very is similar. The piece de resistance is the ripped jeans, which had a cool vibe to the feminine pastel and white tops. I like the South high waisted ripped skinny jeans.
But don’t forget the holiday accessories! A good pair of smart sandals can take you from beach to bar with ease – just like the Shoe Box Britney toe post embellished leather wedge sandals. For sunglasses, you cannot beat a classic pair of aviators like the Lipsy aviator sunglasses.
Are you jetting away anywhere nice?
