Fashion Mumblr: What’s In My Suitcase?

Jetting off on holiday? Get an early dose of sunshine – and a plenty of travel style inspo – with blogger Josie from Fashion Mumblr as she gives us a sneak peek into her suitcase.

Tell us about your next holiday destination…

Well, as I write this I’m currently in India on a work trip (perks of the job!) learning about the community trade efforts of The Body Shop, and on Friday we are heading to the Maldives for some pure relaxation. I can’t wait to lie on a beach, with no Wi-Fi, and properly switch off!

What are you looking forward to most about the trip?

Staying off my phone! Being a blogger, we are glued to our phones – replying to e-mails, creating and sharing content and engaging with our followers. I can’t wait to just leave my phone in the beach hut and enjoy some time to myself.

What is your ultimate summer track/song?

I would say Paradise by Coldplay. It’s so dramatic but reminds me of long white sand beaches, exotic locations and far-flung lands. I also love Adventure of a Lifetime by Coldplay too – it will always remind me of my trip to Costa Rica last January as I was playing it on repeat during the trip and then used it for my YouTube video of the trip too!

What are your go-to Accessorize pieces for your pack list and why?

I always like to get a pair of embellished sandals and Accessorize have some beautiful designs – this time I’ve picked up a pearly daisy pair to take me from beach to bar. I also love a huge beach bag for all my essentials and the Jaipur range is perfect for this!
