No matter the season, white serves as one of the staple shades in my wardrobe. Also, the easiest way to keep cool in these balmy summers is to wear white clothes in breathable fabrics like cotton and linen. It’s no surprise that my collection of breezy white dresses has grown exponentially over the last few years. Along with being the perfect choice for hot summer days, they also boast an effortless style I can rarely resist. For thet reason I’m always on the lookout for unique details and silhouettes that make a white dress unlike any other. I bought this white Stradivarius shirtdress at the end of August last summer - it’s the perfect dress to spend long days walking and exploring while traveling. That's why I took it with me to Greece.. Plus, a classic shirtdress like this can be worn long after you come home from a trip. It’s one of my favourite styles to wear on a daily basis and even at work at the pharmacy. This one is cut to perfection- it ties at the waist, flattering the figure and is a midi length, which is the perfect length for an everyday dress in my opinion.
I think it’s safe to say that I have a basket bag addiction. It all started a few years ago with one tote…and then spiraled into a full-on obsession. I have far too many than I need, yet, I always find a reason for a new one. They’re quite possibly my favourite thing to wear everyday besides dresses, and more often than not, you’ll see me carrying one. Whether we’re traveling or I’m just running regular errands at home, I always find a big (or small) basket bag useful. I personally love the texture that it adds to any outfit - tee and jeans just look cuter with a little tote, and some of my favourite dresses feel more day appropriate when I wear them with any one of my baskets.
Perhaps best of all, basket bags come in a huge variety of price points, so no matter what your budget is, they’re a piece you can easily add to your summer wardrobe. If you love the look as much as I do, I can promise from experience: the cost-per-wear will end up in pennies!
I love pairing those breezy summer looks with neutral sandals, like this strap pair from Deichmann. I bought them a few years ago in tan and in black and they are still my favourite sandals to wear all summer long with any one of my dresses. The leather is so soft and buttery and they’re incredibly comfortable to spend the day walking around in ( I took them with me not only in Greece, but in Venice too, and there is a lot of walking in Venice I can assure you!). I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a good traveling sandal. Plus, this tan colour is basically a neutral, so they go with everything.
