OK, away Fri to Sun in Malaga. Only taking carry on bag so needs to be very capsule BUT glamorous and slim making!!!!

Am thinking 2 nice dresses for evening (not too short as knees are yuk!

Daytime will be mostly by the pool so OK for cossies, but maybe simple skirt/top combo or sundress for casual shopping.

Am tall, size 16. Anyone seen anything nice about? Oh and budget is economy (like the flight!!!)

How about this maxi dress? If you are tall you could carry it off well and add a belt to give it some shape.

Tesco also have some nice linen cropped trousers in various colours for £12.

Yippeeee!!! I've been wanting to do this for a while!

Maybe just one dress, one skirt, three/four tops (assuming you're like me and spill stuff), one pair of trousers/shorts. Pair of flat shoes for day, pair of heels for night.

Like the dress above: could be worn casually during the day and dressed up for evening with heels and some jewellery, maybe a cardigan in case it is a bit cooler. Skirt and t-shirt for shopping during the day, again can be dressed up in the evening with heels and jewellery (even plain white ts could work).

What's your colouring like?

Thanks girls! Like the maxi but fancy something a bit brighter I think.

Am going to rifle through Primark tomorrow and see if i can come up with any goodies.

Bleh - your list sounds about right - thank you!!

I have this maxi dress wItemQQptZWomen_s_Clothing?hash=item25550d7e2c&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A3%7C39% 3A1%7C72%3A1685%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A100 which I love (this pic doesn't do it justice!)

I brought it a couple of years ago and it is perfect casual with flip flops or dressed up with heals and jewellery. I get comments on it every time I wear it.

I also have this one - Jane Norman did the same style dress in several prints a couple of years ago. QptZWomen_s_Clothing?hash=item2ea5c0aa6f&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A3%7C39%3A1%7C 72%3A1685%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A100
