After Ireland, we flew to Stockholm, Sweden, the fourth city of our Europe + Iceland trip! Stockholm is a fun, beautiful place with charming architecture, lots of museums, and incredibly fresh delicious food. (Plus, it's the motherland to Acne Studios!) I'll be publishing more detailed posts to come.

Anyway, a white linen shirtdress is my idea of a must-have summer piece. The fabric is flowy and light, and the look is so clean. I have a structured white shirtdress (styled here), but I also like this linen one for casual wear.

Onto Ireland, the third destination of our Europe + Iceland trip! From Copenhagen, we flew into Dublin and then rented a car to drive around the country. Specifically, we wanted to go to the Cliffs of Moher, but we stopped and stayed in towns along the way. In another post, I'll write more about the experience of the drive (and driving on the opposite side of the road!). These photos were taken on our road trip as we passed through Kinvara - a quaint seaport village with this awesomely pink pub!

SUNDAY

Thank you to Dolce Vita for the VIP tickets! They had this rad, fenced off area with drinks, sno-cones, and a photobooth. The coolest part is a toss up between the strip of grass they brought in to cover the sidewalk, or the baskets of free Dolce Vita shoes they were giving out.

Copenhagen in Denmark is the second city of our Europe + Iceland trip. It's a pleasant city, home to minimalist fashion, modern design, and an exciting food scene. (We actually planned our entire trip around our reservation to Noma, named the best restaurant in the world - I'll write a whole post for that experience soon!)

I didn't think I'd jump on the Birkenstock bandwagon, mostly because I don't like walking in sandals without back straps (the annoying slippage and flip-flopping noise I can do without). So when I saw these "Milano" Birks with the back strap, I bought them immediately. They've been the perfect travel shoe - easy for airports and comfy for all-day exploring.

Longchamp "Le Pliage Neo" tote (on sale!)

Hello from Germany! We're on our Europe + Iceland trip (for real time updates, follow my Instagram: @heyprettything_ and Snapchat: @heyprettything). Our first stop is Berlin, a sprawling city amidst an incredible regeneration, with an eclectic blend of old and new, charm and grit, sophistication and chill. These photos were taken at Neue Heimat, a super fun outdoor food + drinks / music + shopping market. I'll be writing more extensive Berlin travel posts in the future!

Right before my trip, I bought this Longchamp "Le Pliage Neo" tote (leather version currently on sale at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) and I'm so glad I did. It's the perfect carry-on, and it magically fits everything.
