I just recently returned from my vacation in Italy (have you seen my ultimate packing list?) and back home, in Northern Germany, the weather is pretty far from good summer weather. It is cold and raining a lot, but on the Amalfi coast I just
couldn’t didn’t want to imagine any other temperature than around 30 degree. Thats my ideal climate (come on, I am a Hungarian girl). I prepared this look before my vacation has started and I actually had this off the shoulder summer dress with me in Italy (see on Instagram).
It is a very versatile piece, works with flats during the day and perfect for instance with wedges for the evening. It is all about the right accessories. I even wear it for running errands in the city, when the weather is good enough for it. I love that is has pockets and when I wear it for an evening out having dinner, I can very calmly have that dessert, no one will notice my belly 😉 .
I also like to have the bag in the city as well! Straw bags have their prime time this summer and this one is a special piece. I have got it as a birthday present once on the Maldives, from sweet local friends. The straw is covered with pink crochet and you can close the bag on the top. Perfection. Unfortunately (or fortunately) I could not find any alternatives for this bag, but there are a lot of nice straw bags available now everywhere.
I wear a pair of oldie but goldie wooden slides from Gucci, again a piece that I will wear till it falls apart.
I am not sure how long the off-the-shoulder trend is going on, I am actually pretty surprised it is still so popular, I thought it will be only a very short summer liaison. What do you think, will we wear off the shoulder next summer as well? x
