packing guide: seaside holiday

Not only is it constantly raining at the moment, when I check the coming week’s weather on my iPhone the outlook is just as bleak. I don’t remember a July as miserable as this for a long time… I can only dream of foreign escapes and blue skies! To brighten up your day (if you’re in the UK or someplace else rainy – if you’re basking in sunshine then enjoy it for us!) I thought I’d start a mini-series of posts featuring different types of holiday (gives me an excuse to ogle images of amazing scenery, not gonna lie) and a packing list to go with it. Since my holiday destination this year is most likely to be a villa in the south of France with family at the end of the summer, where better place to start?

    Sorry about your weather. I had no idea. Is it a warm rain? I love all your pics. I am going to Hawaii next week and I hate packing. I like your ideas. You will be in the Sth of France soon enough. I am jealous. Teri
