Fashion Outfit Travel

Classic Staples

May 12, 2017


It’s been a little bit of a whirlwind travel wise lately. A couple of days after arriving from Thailand, I was up in the air again, riding the clouds to a brand new destination which I’m so pleased to have finally ticked off my list. I visited Montenegro for a few days with a lovely group of ladies and before heading off, I only had a few hours to pack, so I stuck to the essentials with a couple of classic pieces that I knew would be absolutely fail-safe.

When exploring a new country, it’s always difficult to gauge exactly what to wear, you want to feel like you’re in holiday mode, but not necessarily dressed for the beach, and since I knew the area we were staying in was right by the port, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to keep things simple and go for monochrome.

Of course, I had more than one outfit planned for the trip, but what I didn’t pack more than one of were accessories. I limited my sunglasses and handbag to just one each, and as they were both black and timeless, it was easy to pair with everything else.

Just before travelling, I logged onto Monnier Fréres and ordered a new black bag from one of my favourite Parisian brands, A.P.C, as well as an amazing pair of cat-eye sunglasses from Stella McCartney. Usually, Monnier Fréres is top of my list when shopping for bags and accessories because it’s what their main buy focus is on. I love the array of designers in stock and the delivery options are great, so I’m always able to slip in a last minute order and get my products in the nick of time before an upcoming trip.
