packing for a summer trip

ESPRIT SUMMER TRIP

As most women, I always tend to pack way too many items when I travel. This summer, I decided to only bring a carry-on suitcase for a long weekend with friends on the Liguria coast in Italy, here are my travel essentials:

A black swimsuit (that can be used as a top with a pareo for a quick lunch or happy hour), a nice chic blouse combined with denim jeans and a shopper that I’ll use to carry all my belongings and my books, at the beach.

I love the tassel detail on this bikini bottom perfect to look good on the beach, these fringed mules can also be worn at night for a more casual look and this red dress is just amazing !

For the evening, a small black purse (this one has sequins on which makes it perfect to go out dancing as well !), high heel sandals, a jumpsuit that can be worn with sandals for a more casual look during the day or heels for a more elegant look. I also love this white one shoulder summer dress that will look great for happy hour…

cool places : 10 corso como in milan

10 corso como milano 1

It’s not a new one but it is definitely one of my favorite spots in Milan! The bookstore is the best in town, the art gallery can be visited for free and the patio downstairs is the perfect spot to sip on an Aperol Spritz during happy Hour…

how to wear culottes 0

Culottes are super trendy right now (I just bought a pair at Zara, they have a great selection!) and since it’s a tricky piece to wear, I thought I’d share some ideas with you guys…

classic black and white (love the panama hat detail), this is probably my favorite!
