When going on vacation, we always try to pack in a carry-on. It doesn’t matter if we are going on a weekend trip, or spending two weeks in Europe. We have heard (and witnessed) horror stories about lost luggage, and the last thing we want to do when we arrive is be stuck waiting for our luggage! It always seems to be a little bit easier to pack in a carry-on when traveling during the summer. You can usually find some assortment of summer dresses, shorts and tops, sandals and maybe one pair of heels, that will take us through the trip!
When visiting Southern California last month (you can see our recommendations here), we stuck to the same packing philosophy. This desert print dress from Joe Fresh served as a great casual day dress, but when worn with a pair of chunky sandals (like these, and now 40% off), it was perfect for dinner. We love the desert print, the knee length, and the lightness of the silk fabric. It looks great with these gladiator sandals, too. If this print isn’t for you, the same dress silhouette is available in a pineapple print, which is adorable!
