When Donna Ida Thornton added the Hold Me Tote Bag to her IDA SS16 collection, we wanted to know how the pros packed for holiday so we asked fashion blogger LornaLuxe for her style secrets when packing for holiday.
The Hold Me Tote Bag in denim is the perfect hand luggage to take on the plane (stacks of room for passport, purse, makeup, Kindle) or the essential beach bag (big enough for towel, sun cream, sunglasses, hat) plus when you return from your trip, you can just throw it in the wash on a cold cycle and it will come out like your favourite jeans.
Lorna's Hold Me Tote Bag has been customised with her initials by artist Daisy Emerson (you can add your initials to your Tote Bag or Sadie the Boiler Suit too) and features bespoke charms from MyFlashTrash of a Star, Lips, Palm Tree, Anchor and Heart. She styles her Hold Me Tote with IDA Downtime Dazzler Shorts, DONNA IDA Blouse and Pallenberg Scarf.
Unsurprisingly, I rely heavily on denim through summer - it's a classic neutral and makes a great alternative to black. Favourites include a lighter wash denim jacket which I'll travel in and shoulder robe come the cooler evenings.
A denim culotte; partnered with a summer heel and off-the-shoulder blouse, this is a favourite silhouette of mine, great for showcasing my sun-kissed clavicles. I also swear by a denim jean short in a darker wash; super flattering, seriously on trend and robust enough for sandy beaches and boat trips."
