OK, I'm beginning to panic here.

I've got to go on a 5 day event with my husband's work next month (mainly beach location) and I have no idea what to wear! I haven't been on a beach holiday in almost 10 years, and not been shopping for holiday clothes in over 3...

It's going to be hot, but at the same time his bosses are going to be there, so I need to look relatively modest / smart.

So what do I buy / pack?

Oh that would be my idea of hell - and 5 days!!!

I would bring light trousers, white and some printed, chambray shirt, vest tops and breton style dress. Tan and silver sandals.

This, this and this and this all smart, hot weather wear options.

And a decent swimsuit! I couldn't do a bikini around a work crowd!

Yep- my idea of hell too, but haven't been able to get out of it (used DD as an excuse for the past few years, but MIL has been too helpful this year! wink )

Oooh, I like those - thanks for the ideas!!

Couldn't see where to buy any of them, I haven't got the hang of pinterest yet. Do any of the shops even have their summer season in yet or is still all thermal?

Most of those links originally from blogs so may be hard to get the actual items - it was more to give you ideas.

Some links to stuff to help build similar outfits to the links....

Great plains links don't seem to be working - go to their lookbook...
