Summer Vacation Evening Essentials

Summer Vacation Evening Essentials

Hi Everyone,

Packing for Summer vacation is often not as simple as we think. How often is it that you think you have packed just right and then once you are on vacation you realise you haven’t brought along things that you really need.

Whilst packing we all think of what to wear during the day, special or pretty outfits for the evening, something for the beach. However who ever thinks of packing items for down time. Something to relax in after a day out. Something to slip over should the weather decide to get a bit breezy. Or an outfit for simply lounging around in whilst in your vacation home/hotel!

I remember one year we were going to Normandy and we were having a heat wave in Zurich as I packed. So in went all lovely hot weather pieces. The minute we got past Burgundy the weather turned and dropped at least 15 degrees with rain. The cold weather lasted all week and I was lucky to have packed one pair of white jeans. I did have to buy a warm sweater though.

This post highlights some key pieces from Henriette Steffensen – a lovely brand from Copenhagen that specialises in the most beautifully soft fleece pieces. The quality of which is so nice once you wear them you simply never want to take them off. Fleece is not necessarily what you think of for a Summer vacation – but it might just save the day! Especially great should you be going on a boating or adventure trip. You never know when the weather turns and it’s good to have something comfy and warm ready at hand.

  1. Not without my Poncho

This poncho has got to be my all time favourite pice for taking on any vacation. Roll up to use as a pillow, use instead of a blanket. Throw over a shorts or jeans outfit for chilly evenings. Or simply pop over your bikini after a long day in the sun and be ready for aperitif.

This poncho is available online here. There are 4 different colours.

Again, who thinks of packing a simple lounge suit when they go on vacation? We were in Thun just this weekend, staying in a Lake Villa at the Delta Park Vital resort (more about our stay on FunkyForty.com soon), and Hubby was certainly happy to have his lounge suit with him. We really enjoyed our time on the terrace with its fabulous lake view.
