I am going on a holiday abroad for the first time in 10 years, so I need new clothes. I am 5ft 4" and a size 22.

I don't have a vast budget, clothes are normally new look, sainsburys, price range!

What key pieces of clothes should I buy?

I also have huge boobs, so know that I suit V-necks etc.

What sort of holiday are you going on and where andwhen? Beach, city, hot and sunny?

Kaftans are your friend - casual and posh - ring the changes with accessories.
Loads on Ebay at the moment.
Shorter ones over pants, full length for evening - light to pack too.
I've norkage too so v-necks are a good choice.
Try to make sensible mix and match colour choices to make things go further.

Thank you, I had seen a maxi dress on ebay too that might be good too!

I'd take 2 pairs of jeans and two pairs of cropped trousers ( my cropped trousers are Boden) , several long tops with mix of long, three quarter and short sleeves and say 4 simple dresses, of which one could be a maxi. And a couple of interredting necklaces and ditto belt.
Plus one longline cardi or jacket, one long jumper, pissibly in cotton,one cropped cardi and one jacket/ trench that's waterproof.
You can travel in the last of these, with one of the pairs of jeans and one of the tops.
