Okay… so it’s approaching the 100 degree mark in the city and many cities around the country and it was certainly a scorcher in Barcelona and even Prague in the last few weeks I was there. My saving grace was not having to wear pants and prancing around Europe in sundresses and summer hats. Summer is great for many things but let’s admit it being able to wear dresses on a daily basis is definitely a perk worth celebrating.
I love flowy summer dresses; you know the kind of dress you wear thinking you may be singing with birds and dancing your heart out at any moment. Those romantic summer dresses that make you feel like you’re on the set of the Sound of Music. Given my obsession with summer dresses, I was down right gitty when I found several dresses that were perfect for my European trip.
The first dress I fell for was a layered high-low maxi dress in white with a delicate floral pattern. This maxi is so romantic and feminine. This dress could easily be a special occasion dress perfect for those outdoor summer weddings or those summer days when you’re feeling a little extra (which should be always). It was definitely the perfect dress for going Prague rooftop hopping.
The next dress I found and was completely obsessed with was perfect for day and night. I was so in love with the floral pattern and the simple spaghetti straps. The length was also perfect for high heels or a summer sandal perfect for those Prague cobblestone streets. This dress was a colorful as the unbelievably beautiful peacock I ran into while shooting.
The third dress I just had to have for Europe was perfect for strolling the streets of Amsterdam. I love anything off the shoulder. There is something alluring about an off the shoulder look where you can have a sultry vibe without revealing too much; and this delicate blue linen dress did not disappoint. This is the perfect day dress for an easy breezy day of launching in European cafes or riding your bike down Amsterdam’s canal lined streets.
