Friends, Friday was a LONG ass day as I headed out to Milan with one of my friends, Hailey. We met up with our friend Kristin who was in Germany fo work. We’ll be in Lake Como for a few days then head to Mykonos to celebrate a friend’s 40th birthday today. I’m pretty excited for both destinations as I’ve never been and have heard great things about them. Since we had several mini flights in between, and trains and boats, we decided yet again to only do the carry-on life.
It’s such a struggle for me but after South Of France and discovering packing cubes, I’m feeling more confident. I will say, this trip is nearly twice as long with much cooler temperatures. When thinking about outfits to wear, I wanted to bring versatile dresses that can go from day to night, mountains and lakes to the Greek islands. Insert this dress.
I mostly packed a few things that can easily transition so that I can keep my suitcase in check. Or rather, not checked if you will. This pretty hunter green floral maxi allows me to do just that. During the day exploring Lake Como I wore it with a jacket and chucks. Finally taking my own advice from this post actually. And I’ll wear it this week at night in Mykonos for dinner out with the girls. I’ll style it with some sandals and a straw bag. I love when pieces can easily go from day to night, makes packing for long trips so much easier.
PS if green isn’t your color, there’s this purple version that’s nearly identical and I’m kind of obsessed. Flynn Skye is a new to me brand and it’s safe to say I’ll be shopping it a lot more! Doing a size medium in this dress for reference. You can shop the brand at Shopbop which is currently having a big sale right now where you can get up to 25% off your order. Use code STOCKUP18 at checkout. I’m eyeing this caramel colored cardigan and this pretty floral wrap dress from cupcakes and cashmere.
