Anine Bing Floral Dress

AnineBing_2AnineBing_3AnineBing_6AnineBing_5AnineBing_4AnineBing_1I wore this outfit to dinner in Rome one night and stopped to take a few photos next to these glowing floral vines that covered an adorable little park on our walk to the restaurant. I still can’t believe that our trip has come and gone, I’ll be sharing more photos from our vacation tomorrow but I’m pretty sure Rome was our favorite part. The food {oh the food, I miss it!}, the wine, the history, the beautiful weather, the architecture, and just the overall feeling you get when you’re there. It was so romantic to be there with Dave and share the experience together! Back to this dress, it was such an easy piece to pack and was worn a few times both day and night. I highly recommend buying a size down in the Anine Bing dresses, as this is a little too big on me and is currently at the tailor getting re-sized. My dress is almost sold out, but this print reminds me so much of it, and I’m loving this maxi! I’ve been really drawn to delicate prints lately and small florals are no exception. You can shop this post and my favorite floral dresses for the season below…

On another note, the day we got to Europe I plugged in my straightener and curling iron and both of them blew out. So my hair looked really great the remainder of the trip. Hence, all of the braids! (:

  1. Why does every fashion blogger have these shoes? They’re amazing but it seems like everyone has them and they’re so expensive. Did I miss a sale that I should have taken advantage of?
    I blew 2 hair dryers in Italy as well! So funny.
    You look so cute in these pictures! Traveling to Italy is such an amazing experience. I’m glad you had a great time!

  2. My husband is European, so I have blown out many hair appliances while visiting! Even with the plug adapter, if your hair dryer or curling iron is not Dual Voltage, it will burn out in seconds.

    I just recently purchased a dual voltage travel hair dryer. It will still require the plug adapter to fit the foreign outlets, but now I can switch voltage from North America (110/120v) to UK and most other countries (220/240v). Of course, you have to remember to switch it over or you’ll blow that one out too! If you look online, you can purchase hair dryers, straight irons, and curling wands that are dual voltage. On our most recent trip, I burned out my $120 curling wand (I purchase a voltage converter for $50 that did not work!!!), so I purchased a curling iron in England to keep when we travel. Unfortunately, that mistake cost me over $300 because I had one curling wand to trash, purchased a new one, and the one in the UK. I’ll never make that mistake again. Purchasing only dual voltage from now on! Sorry for the book…

  3. I also learned that lesson the hard way re: blew out my curling iron trying to use a converter. I’ve since ordered dual voltage hot rollers and use them when I go to Europe. Beautiful, easy hair in minutes and I can use them in the states too by switching the voltage!

  4. Love this dress! So easy and simple for summer. Next time for Europe, get an adapter that can handle heat it saves loads of money/hassle!
