I often watch movies just because of their setting and / or costumes (do you guys too?!), and while Honor napped the other afternoon – it was too boiling to go outside – I got my Italy fix re-watching Under the Tuscan Sun (The Talented Mr Ripley is next!). It gave me so much fashion inspiration, and what a perfect way to spend a lazy Summer afternoon. The next day, heading into London for a meeting, I detoured through Notting Hill and picked up this linen dress from a vendor in Portobello Road (a famous street market for antiques and vintage clothing), and it definitely reminds me of some of my favorite Italian films! There’s something so chic and elegant about linen for Summer, while at the same time comfortable and breathable for warm weather. I wore the dress for a day out in the countryside, and combined it with some of my other favorite trends of the season – seashell earrings, and scrunchies. All three are older trends that seem to be making a huge comeback this year, and I always like recycling pieces I already own when I can. Seashell jewelry and scrunchies in particular remind me of the 90’s, and believe it or not – the scrunchie is one I’ve had since high school! I found it in an old drawer at my parent’s house here in England, and I’m so glad I kept it! Shop my favorite linen dresses, seashell earrings, and scrunchies for Summer below.
