What I bought for our summer vacation in Italy – Lake Garda…

Hi guys,

since we didn´t spend our summer vacation at Lake Garda last year I have been pretty excited that we are going in less than a week this year.

For this reason and many more I have rounded up all the beautiful pieces I got for the amazing scenery of our favorite vacation destination.
First of all I am a skirts girl through and through so I will always prefer a skirt or a dress over a pair of pants. I have gotten some skirts which I would say are my signature skirt and I also got one combination which was a little out of my comfort zone but I ended up liking it a lot.
I got this Pull & Bear striped and buttoned down mid skirt with the matching top, a crop top. I always loved the combination of a high-waisted skirt and a crop top but I never dared to wear it. My first thought has been – always – people can see the fat on my back and it would also uncover some weird spots on my body but after trying it on and showing it to Florian we decided we love it.
Dresses are also high in my vacation choice. They are easy to put on and you always look great in an off-shoulder dress on your vacation. With taned shoulders, statement earrings and a messy bun. I got this dreamy off-shoulder buttoned through dress with ruffle sleeves in a gorgeous reed color from Asos. Paired with a basket bag and a pair of nude wedges this will look awesome. I also had my eyes on the same version with a yellow gingham print but one is enough – at least for now.
Another dress I ordered and wasn´t sure about it first is this rainbow striped off-shoulder sundress from Asos. I really loved it on the model and then wasn´t sure about it as it got in but the more I tried it on the more I liked it so I kept it. I don´t mind it looking like a circus tent. It reminds me of it somehow but no one else sees it that way. Combined with a nice shopper bag and a pair of flats – wanted to wear it with wedges but in my opinion the dress is too short for high shoes – this is a really great and effortless summer look.

Another look I packed was a pair of shorts and a matching off-the-shoulder top from H&M. The only reason I packed this was because we wanted to go by bike on one day as I am mostly wearing midi dresses I don´t want one to get ruined by hanging in the bicycle chain. The shorts are linen and old but I still love them. The white color matches with everything and the highwaist is great for going by bike. No one wants to uncover his butt. 
I paired it with a airy and thin top in red. Might be better if people see me from far away. Not the best biker over here.


Another item I loved packing are culottes. In fact I adore this type of pants a lot. They are easy, versatile, trendy and so comfortable. I packed one in a vibrant and yellow color and another on in black with a mixture between cheetah print and polka dots. Going to get so much use out of them while summer.


Since I am only owning one romper I figured it would be a nice change to wear a jumpsuit out for dinner. I got mine from SheIn and I was so surprised as it came in. It has a nice quality and is super soft. Also it fits perfectly. It is the floral print jumpsuit and for 18 Euro it is a nice change for a dress.

Let´s move on to swimmwear. I needed lots of swimmwear. We usually don´t go to a lake or river to bath in the summer so if we aren´t on a pool/beach vacation (last one is two years ago) I really have no interest in buying swimmwear since I don´t need it. 
This year is different. I got several high-waisted bikinis and also bathing suits with matching pareos.


First of all I got the frill polka dot set from South Beacht – polka dots, red and ruffles.Period.

You can buy them separately but I never get single pieces. Top and bottoms.
Next set is from SheIn. White, ruffles and flowers. 

Also got a backless tassle tie pompom cover-up from SheIn. The other sarongs I have are from H&M just in different colors. 

A black bathing suit is a must in my opinion. Shop mine here. It is from H&M. They have so many different ones it is hard to decide.

Second bathing suit is from SheIn. I got mine in a gorgeous bourdeaux color. Makes the crochet trim pop right out. Am I right?


Other additions to my beach wardrobe are sun hats. Got a simlar one to mine here which says “Chase the sun” and I also bought a new beach tote with the same slogan in rose gold. Love it. I ordered it from Asos but the brand is called South Beach and I love their cool items and also their reasonable prices.

Phew – that was a long one but I am just so excited for our trip. Hopefully the weather will be good.


Thanks for stopping by guys. Take care. See you tomorrow for another #travelthursday post.
