Hi loves! Exciting OOTD today! My trip is getting closer and closer and I can’t get London specifically out of my head. I am getting more and more nerves everyday on top of a ton of excitement. Today is the day I start to pack, so I thought I’d make an OOTD out of an item I’m bringing along before it gets packed away. So let’s get right to it!
I swear I use this blush bralette for just about any look! It’s just so lovely and adds a cute detail where you least expect it. The dress is so simple that incorporating a little pop of color is so fun and easy to do! (Necklace from Tiffany’s).
Since I am only bringing a couple dresses to Europe, I was very picky with what I was looking for. I needed something flowy, comfortable, and not too short. Not only that, I needed a dress that could be mixed and matched with shoes and the one sweater I’m packing. Even though I had all these specific requirements, I still wanted something that would be beautiful in photos. After a lot of searching, I think this dress is going to work out perfectly!
The back of this dress is perfect for the hot weather in Italy and the other places I’m visiting. With a few straps criss crossing each other, it allows for a pretty open back and gives the dress a lightness. Not only that, but the cream color is perfect for the summer and adds to the flowy and effortless vibe of this piece.
One of my absolute favorite details of this dress is the very bottom. The little patterning stitched beautifully is the detailing this simple dress needed. I think if the designer would have repeated this partner anywhere else it would have taken away from the specialness of it. I also think it adds a bohemian look that I’m obsessed with in any clothing. I bought this dress from Melrose in the O.C.
To accompany this little silver necklace, I threw in a gold accented crystal rock necklace. It’s quite long so I think it contrasts the shorter one nicely. The earthy tones in it are the perfect match to this cream dress. This whole outfit’s color palette from cream to pink to gold is exactly what’s needed for the warm summer weather!
That’s it for this OOTD, I hope you enjoyed or learned something! Let me know what you think of this dress in the comments below or have any travel tips before I head off to London! xx
