We’re so excited to go to Dubai for the second time this year. It’s such a bizarre and amazing city a the same time. I always think that Dubai is like the Las Vegas of the Middle East. You can do everything there and a lot of cool things happen in the hotels. I love Dubai as a beach city break! Relax at the pool or beach all day. And go out for dinner at those super upscale and fancy restaurants at night. And drink cocktails until the early hours! This trip we’re staying at the Palm Island at the Sofitel Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa and I can’t tell you enough how excited I am about that.
WHAT TO PACK FOR a TRIP TO DUBAI?
Dubai is thé city to bring your best outfits and show your fanciest you. OMG! I don’t think I saw more fancy stores there than anywhere else. I’ll be flying with Emirates for the first time ever. One of the most luxurious airlines in the world! So I’m thinking of some stylish but comfortable outfits to wear during the flight too :-).
If you’re a guy don’t forget to bring a dressed shirt, long trousers and casual shoes (no sneakers) if you want to go to a fancy restaurant or club.
Good to know for the girls: open sandals are not allowed in most clubs. Even not if they’re dressed sandals.
As a frequent traveller you can imagine that I have my own on board routine! I know exactly what to pack for a trip:
Travel pants from Matter // Medkit8 B5 to make sure my skin doesn’t get too dry via Skins // OPI Swiss Hand Guard to clean my hands during the flight // OPI hand cream to keep my hands moist // OPI nail oil to make sure my shellack stays beautiful as long as I can. All OPI products via my fav nail salon All daring in the Rivierenbuurt // suede tote from Topshop or all my hand luggage // headphones from Sony to select all the video clips for the launch of Yourlbb.tv
hang out at the resort & classy at the beach
I love hanging out at the beach and the pool during my travels. And of course you do that in style in Dubai!
Navy blue striped sim suit from Marlies Dekkers // Marni round shaped glasses via Onyourface,nl the website to buy designer-glasses under € 100,- // gold St Tropez style sandals from Sam Edelman via Omoda // Palazzo pants from Mango //
At night we go out to play! Wearing jump suits, designer bags and the perfect accessories. In Amsterdam I don’t really dress up that much but in Dubai I can enjoy it so much! Keep in mind that the desscode in Dubai is more chic ;-).
What would you pack for a chic beach holiday? We’ll be sharing our new Dubai discoveries on the blog soon!
