Italy tends to bring out the best in people- not sure if it's the warm sun on your shoulders, or the warm glow after a bottle of red, but so many of us feel like the best version of ourselves in Italy. Personally, I always felt like I had my best outfit inspirations while on my various trips here. I also attribute this to the fact that it's impossible to dress terribly when everyone around you is dressed impeccably so maybe it's just a little peer pressure, who knows! This white cotton dress was perfect for a breezy stroll along Lago d'Iseo, it hit right above the knees so I know for sure that I did some wading in the cool waters of the lake in it. Paired with the kitschy Gucci hip bag that was all the rage back in the day, I feel like this just screams summertime at the Italian lakes. I wanted to do these posts about my favourite "Italy" outfits, almost as an homage to the Carrie-in-Paris episodes when she busts out the gloves, that bluebird blue overcoat, and the beret...some outfits wait a lifetime to taken to the right city, the right country, to be worn. Have you ever had an outfit (or two) like that?
