White With A Sprinkle Of Pattern

After a long vacation and ample sunbathing, is when white becomes my favorite color to wear. As you may have already guessed, it's because the bright white contrasts nicely with newly tanned skin creating a striking appearance! But just white alone can be boring, so I'm here today to talk about two new additions to my wardrobe that are white with a sprinkle of pattern. 


1. The Solana Romper

The Solana Romper, from Kittsona, features a beautiful floral embroidery, giving me that dash of print, without drawing out the white ensemble . Generally, you have to be careful when purchasing white apparel because sometimes the material is too thin and you end up seeing your underwear outline (even if it's nude colored). I'm happy to say there's no such problem with this romper! The material is a thick enough to prevent transparency, but thin enough to still serve as a summer piece. This little number is also quite versatile - wear it with sandals for a casual get-up or heels for a sophisticated look. It is hands down my most frequently worn romper this summer!


2. The Tamanco Branco

The Tamanco Branco, (which in portuguese means the white clog), by K.dan Flat Shoes a Brazilian footwear brand, is my favorite white sandal of the season. And not just because they're comfortable, and give me an extra 1.5 inches of height, but because of the gorgeous multi-colored rope sole that contrasts with the brilliant white strap. I understand that it might be scary purchasing from a foreign brand but I assure you that it's totally worth the bliss of owning a pair of K.dan shoes. Not only am I a lucky owner of the white clog, but I also have their Jean Mule. Both of which are comfortable, incredibly stylish, and made with quality. If you're unfamiliar with the conversion rate from R$ to USD, I've broken it down for you here. The Tamanco Branco is R$150 which in USD is just about $48, which in my opinion is a STEAL for such great quality shoes. As for sizing, I went with a Brazilian 36, which fit my US Size 7 foot quite well. If you have any other questions just contact me here, or comment below!

5 Reasons Why Palm Print Is So Popular

Okay so clearly the tropical palm leaf is a really popular print -- it's everywhere, from home decor, to footwear, to clothing! You may have seen my Instagram post where I proclaimed my love for The Palm Leaf Pillow Cover, by A Piece of Bella, and for the palm print trend in general. Just recently, I've added this Palm Perfection Romper, from The Mint Julep Boutique, to my wardrobe and now am even more in love with the trend. So I started wondering, what makes this tropical pattern so special? Here's what I came up with..

1. It's a reminder of tropical getaways: Wouldn't you rather be by the beach on a beautiful island instead of at home or at work? I know I would! And what reminds you more of a tropical island than palm trees and palm leaves?!

2. It looks fresh: Literally, the print is riddled with representations of fresh-cut plant leaves. 

3. The color scheme is striking: You generally find the green/blue leaf pattern against a bright white background creating a beautiful, color contrast.

4. It has a calming affect: The print is nature-related and we all know that mother nature has that calming affect!

5. It gives off a sophisticated but relaxed aura: Much like the tropical islands we all love to visit, this design is classy but also laid back, which is the best of both worlds in my opinion!

As you can image, I'll be bringing this Palm Perfection Romper (which is super comfortable) with me on my trip to Lisbon/Rome/Amalfi Coast. This will be my first time visiting Portugal and Italy so I'm beyond excited. I'm jetting off tomorrow night and would love for you follow along on my journey as I document it on Instagram! To anyone else vacationing soon, I wish you safe travels!
