Getting Ready for Summer Vacation Mode

Hi Everyone,

It may seem a little early but believe me the last thing you want to be doing is organising your Summer vacation and vacation wardrobe simultaneously. Plus as soon as it gets warmer isn’t it nice to wear something we know will also be good for our Summer vacation. One of the most perfect ways to make me feel happy in any case…

The thing about a vacation wardrobe is that you need versatile pieces that can be worn in several situations. You want to be prepared in case the evenings get cold. Space is also another thing to consider.  A Summer vacation wardrobe is preferably  made up of pieces that take up very little space.

Todays post showcases outfits that you can wear now and are perfect for your Summer vacation wardrobe too. They are currently all available on the La-Tienda website or in store (La Tienda,  Zürcherstrasse 55, 8142 Uitikon. Tel: 044 491 83 84).

Getting Ready for Summer Vacation Mode

Lets start with the white jeans and pretty blouse look – a perfect outfit for travelling. Whether travelling by car, train or plane these pieces are fabulous basics to have ready.

The blouse is available online here and made up of a mix of silk and elastin so stylish, easy care and comfy all in one.

Citizens of Humanity jeans available online here – I like to wear them rolled up a little but you can also wear them down for a slight leg lengthening effect.

The bag is easily scrunchable into every corner of your suitcase. Making it one of the best travel handbags ever. Available in three different colours. I like to line mine with a scarf to make sure nothing escapes through the weaving.

My glasses are 100% made in Switzerland from Marcus Marienfeld.


We all know that feeling of packing beautifully for high Summer and then suddenly there is a cool wind or a bad weather day. So rule number one always take something warm with you wherever you travel.

I love this cardigan as it’s so cuddly and easily doubles up as something soft to lean against whilst travelling. Being navy too means it goes with practically everything.

See here for a lovely selection of cardigans available online.

The dress is a little shoestring one – perfect for vacation as it folds down to almost nothing. It is also made out of stretch silk and available online here.

The sandals are Ash, a timeless model available online here.


Saving the best for last I have quite simply fallen in love with this little stretch silk dress – available online here.

Oh and meet my new friend Lucy, isn’t she cute – smile. I’m wondering if I can take her home too…

This kaki jacket is also a lovely change from always wearing a denim jacket over Summer dresses. Available online here.

 Wishing you lots of fun getting into your own “Summer Vacation Mode”!
