I packed light for my 3 week trip to Bali and anyone who knows me will know that’s no easy feat – I’m the girl who takes an entire suitcase of shit to her friends house to stay for the weekend.

But guys, you just don’t need much in Bali. I took one dress, two pairs of shorts, three tops and two pairs of flip-flops.

The idea was that I’d buy some more clothes over there, and as Laura had told me: ‘Megs, all the stuff over here is so you’ – it made sense not to pack too heavy.

The combination of crop tops and shorts is pretty much all I wore whilst I was away. And if there’s one thing I quickly realised about the general personal style of others upon arriving in Bali? Casual was the only way. There’s no ‘dressing up’ there. Because honestly? It’s just too darn hot. Comfort was definitely key.

Missguided have such a huge range of crop tops that cost next to nothing, so stocking up on a few for this trip made styling outfits easy. I mean, you want to make minimal effort when you’re boiling hot, right? And they take up next to no space in your luggage, which makes them quite the holiday staple if you ask me.

Flip flops/Sandals are also a must – most people remove their shoes before entering any shops, cafe’s restaurants etc. – it’s the polite thing to do. So you don’t want to be faffing about with any fancy pants shoes that will take you an age to get on and off.

Basically?

Bali Style = Super Simple.
