A Postcard From Bali

This outfit post is coming all the way from the sunny beaches of Canggu - a small surfing village on the island of Bali. I'm here for just under two weeks and it took under two days to realise that the pace of life, as well as the dress code, is laid back and casual.

I'm someone who plans holiday outfits as soon as the flight tickets are booked - it's one of the most exciting parts of the holiday! I had originally packed 2x outfits per day, naturally, but I quickly discovered that I would be living in different variations of the same outfit.

To me, the ultimate staples are: an oversized shirt worn over a bikini, teamed with a pair of Levi's denim shorts, a pair of chunky sandals and a woven basket bag for all of your beach day essentials.

This Jack Wills shirt is perfect to throw on over your bikini if you need to cover up from the sun, but also if you're popping into somewhere for a drink or bite to eat. There's something so chic about a classic pale blue oxford shirt worn over white denim.

The shorts are Levi's 501 so they're high waisted and super comfy - I just need to stay away from chocolate ice cream for the next week!

Now let's talk about these Dr Martens Clarissa II sandals. I absolutely adore them, they're a bit like marmite, but I think they're rad. They're so comfy and the chunky soles makes your legs look way longer.

The basket bag is from Monsoon and I think it's perfect for an exotic beach holiday. It fits all of your beach essentials in perfectly but it's also super versatile as it's not too big to wear in the evening too - which is ideal if you're tight on suitcase space.
