In part one of this series I did discuss the merits of taking mainly dresses on holiday as they take up less space in the case. However, as I have quite a little addiction to the pretty white blouse I do like to take a few on holiday and they always look perfect with denim shorts . Like strawberries and cream it is a perfect summer combination, you only have to look at Lucy from Fashion Me Now in her Isabel Marant top and denim cut offs. Gorgeous, just wish I had her legs!

Then you will need the shorts to go with the tops .... the safe bet is denim which go with everything and denim cut offs are literally timeless. I prefer a comfy relaxed fit which are slightly more flattering for the 40+ than for example Daisy from Dukes of Hazzard denim shorts. I have Gap's girlfriend fit denim shorts, I think they are these which I lived in on holiday last year. I also like chino shorts and I recommend Boden's Rachel chino shorts which are super flattering. Also, I hear on good recommendation that J Crew's 4 inch chino shorts are excellent.

Another winning combination is shorts and a breton ..... I always travel in a breton T-shirt it is very handy to have one with you on holiday no matter how tropical the weather is going to be ...... you may get a dodgy day weather wise or need a practical top for a sightseeing trip or just want to look nautically chic on a boat trip.
I think I want this one ...... for my holiday to Guernsey.
