Usually, when I go on vacation, I like to pack at least one dress I can easily dress up or down with accessories. Something flirty and fun I can wear to dinner paired with heels and a clutch ( in this case with wedged espadrilles and Cult Gaia bag I've been wearing with pretty much everything lately ) or with flats and a casual tote for day, if I feel like taking a break from my normal vacation uniform, i.e. off-the shoulder tops & denim cut-offs.
This time around it was this pretty Zimmermann number I picked up from Net-a-Porter recently! Aside from the fact there is never really a moment when I am not lusting over at least one Zimmermann dress, what made this one so special for me was the winning combination of pretty floral print, fit-and-flare silhouette, and of course the last up back detailing!
Also, and this one is kind of important, comfort is key when I choose which pieces to take on vacation with me. This dress, as pretty and dressy as it is, wears like a dream because it's made from a lightweight linen and cotton blend fabric, so it's easy, breezy and comfortable, not to mention the fact that it stays wrinkle free throughout the day, which for me, is another big selling point!
