I love wearing pastel colours and with summer upon us, there is no better time to incorporate pretty pastels into your wardrobe. From robin’s egg blue to bright yellow there is something so cheerful about pastel hues. I photographed these images in Central Havana, an area known for its bright candy coloured buildings (see my 48 hour Havana, Cuba guide here!). I love how the dress I’m wearing perfectly mirrors the hues of the local architecture.
The dress I’m wearing is a rental from Beyond the Runway and I love its feminine shape and exaggerated sleeves. Renting dresses for traveling is a travel blogger best kept secret! It’s such a great way to add variety to your travel wardrobe and makes for the prettiest pictures! The tiered lace detailing on this dress adds an extra element of visual interest and the colours of the floral fabric are simply divine. While I would typically wear a pretty pair of statement stilettos along with a dress like this, a long day of exploring meant comfortable nude flats were the best choice (these flat are my go-to comfortable yet pretty travel shoes!). A round wicker bag paired with circular sunglasses is the perfect way to complete a flirty summer look.
