I’ve noticed a couple of new Summer capsule drops and vacation edits from some brands I shop from so thought I would share a few favorites. If you are like me and prefer clean, minimalist designs, summer dressing using to be so hard; it’s gotten so much better. Now there are more choices than I can afford or possibly wear! I have planned one summer trip to Italy–Rome and Puglia, so am trying to figure out what I want to add to take. While I want a lot, I don’t need much, and I want each piece to feel special. I will do a packing list once I have it done.
Toteme’s new Summer capsule, which came days after their pre-Fall launch (go figure), has many appealing items including this white broderie anglaise dress below. (Holding image above is also Toteme.)
It is just the right bit of feminine for my taste, it’s broderie, but it’s a simple shape, and I’m into this sheer leg trend that is happening (though it really doesn’t feel like something I’d wear in the city–definitely resort centric to me). It reminds me of this image of influencer Marie Von Behrens, when she was in Rome last summer. (That will be me eating pasta! And looking nothing like that.)
I like this crisp cotton poplin navy shirt and trousers for travel. I love navy in summer and typically include it in my mix of white, off white, khaki and black.
And how good are these sandals? I’m glad people are getting on board with kitten heels, it’s the only way to go. Also, I love a white shoe in the summer.
I am into the idea of wearing bold silver jewelry with these summer shades (which is a good thing, since I’m designing it!), but in all seriousness, it feels fresh to me. I will pack the at least the XL and Large Mariner Link Necklaces and Bracelet. (There will be gold too, but these feel like easy summer travel options.)
Matteau also launched new colors and designs on their site. This black off-shoulder dress is appealing–again feminine, but not overly.
As is this Everyday Shirt Dress and this Open Back Knit Dress and so many others. Honestly, I want a lot of it. You can see it all here.
This Maria McManus Ladder Crochet Dress would be an evening stunner for holiday. There is a lot of crochet out there, many designs I like in theory, but not reality–this one is an exception.
Attersee also has a Vacation Shop. I can’t decide which pieces I like most, but this column skirt would be versatile and a cinch to pack.
And this blue striped caftan….not sure I would wear it, but I do love it. It also comes in white-on-white, which might be more up my alley. Now if I could just edit down what I love!

What super great choices. I will be eager to see what you put together for Italy. Love the white shirt above. Where can I find it. Thank you!
I should have clarified that, the holding image is Toteme.
Love this all! That column skirt reminds me of a much-mourned navy silk drawstring skirt that I had in the 1980s by Susie Hilfiger (!!) You would twist it up when still damp to create fake ‘Fortuny’ pleats. I wore it into the ground and I would happily kill for any paper-thin navy silk summer items.
Love all if this and thank you for inspiring me!
