Hello there ♥
Sorry for just this one photo today of my outfit. I went out to take these yesterday and was in a rush because I had to get to work, and just couldn't find a good spot to take them. I ended up looking at them when I came home and being super disappointed because none of them turned out good at all; besides the first one I took! The first one is usually the one I end up liking the best always, ha.
I still wanted to document this outfit though for the blog! I have this same dress in teal and thought it would be perfect to get it in red to take to Italy with me...it's super versatile and can be worn as a trapeze dress or belted to make a fit and flare like above. It's pretty easy and breezy and the best part is the shape allows for ample eating; I'll need that for the countless cones of gelato I plan to devour, ha. I'm going to pack it away for now in a container I have of things I'm taking on my trip so I don't style it up all summer and then run out of ways to wear it while in Europe. See you in a few months, pretty dress! x
I've kind of been looking at my wardrobe and trying to figure out how to pack for 4 months out of the country and I'm pretty stuck. It'll be extremely hot when I first get there, but by the time I leave I'll need a winter coat. And then there's all the days in between. What I really want to do is pack my dream wardrobe of beautiful, fancy, vintage dresses to go sight seeing and traveling in....but it's not practical in the least bit. I can only bring so much and I need things that are versatile enough to mix and match so I can get the most outfits out of my wardrobe. Also, I need things for utility. Walking to school and all about town, needing sturdy, good quality pieces that won't need mending or having the fear of ruining them...Oh, and then also there's the fact of washing things. I need quick drying, easy care...so although I want to pack a dozen beautiful dresses, it just isn't practical. So I'm having a hard time balancing things I need to take out of necessity, but that still match the aesthetics that I want.
Hope you all are really well! x
With much love, Lauren.
