When picking our family vacation destination this summer, we were visualizing a place that would completely make us forget about our busy daily life and would fill us up with new energy and fresh ideas for the upcoming cold days. L.A. seemed like the obvious choice; with its happy vibe, it seems like an absolute opposite of Paris – culturally, physically, and sartorially. There is a sense of freedom that I don’t feel anywhere else in the world..
We easily got used to the city’s vibe, starting our days with a smoothie or acai bowl, passing days on the beach or strolling around the city’s numerous art galleries..
I found this Reformation red polka dots wrap dress the perfect Erin Off Duty’s vacation companion. No buttons, no zips, no squeezing in, so easy to wear, stylish and practical for a busy day spent with kids. I love everything about it, from the cut, the color, and the silhouette. What I like about wrap dresses is the fact that they are fitted around the waist and flare out to create such a flattering silhouette. You can just throw them on and instantly feel fabulous.
Polka dots print adds the retro flair and a bit of playfulness that makes it so fun to wear. No surprise red polka dots dress was adorned by Minnie Mouse and Marilyn Monroe. It represents the Hollywood “everything is possible” spirit; it’s so flirty and feminine at the same time.
The dress in question is by Reformation, the cool-girl brand based in L.A. Their clothes are made in L.A. from some amazing sustainable fabrics. Fabulous fashion, 100% guilt free..
I completed my look with this amazing hip Carolina Santo Domingo raffia tote bag, a perfect versatile vacation bag, that can be worn at the beach or in the city. Can’t wait to wear it in Paris to prolong the vacation mode.
Style tip: When it comes down to the styling, wrap dresses are as easy to handle as they are to put on. They can be styled in different ways to dress it up or down. Wear them with a pair of sandals for effortless chic look for a day on the beach, with sneakers to look casual, or with stilettos for a more dressy occasion. They offer endless styling possibilities, and with little creativity, they can be transformed easily into a chic cold weather look.
